My wife and I booked three nights at the Boulevard in Nairobi as a stop off before and after our safari. I must say I wish we had stayed a few more nights. We arrived at 5am on a dark morning in July and were welcomed by a friendly lady at the front desk and after check-in procedures we were in our room within 10 minutes. As some people have mentioned, it is best to get a room on the agrden side of the hotel as this is away from the noise of the very busy Uhuru Avenue nearby. After our safari we requested a garden view and were granted with no problems.
Inside the hotel our room was nicely furnished plus contained an electronic safe (no extra cost) and fridge. Everything was clean and tidy with hot water in the bathroom. You can eat in the hotel at night and the food was just gorgeous and inexpensive. A bottle of Tusker was around 90p at the time of writing. Breakfast was buffet style with a mixture of everything including bacon, sausages etc just in case you want an English style breakfast.
Outside there is a swimming pool, tennis courts, outside bar and nice gardens. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from downtown Nairobi which you reach via the quiet Harry Thuku Road frequented by locals going about their everyday business and various learner drivers which was amusing. At the end of this road there is a Barclays Bank and ATM machine which gives a much better rate than the hotel.
The Boulevard and its staff are all so friendly and helpful and we just loved the place. I would thoroughly recommend it. Next time we go to Nairobi we will book with the Boulevard again
