We stayed at the Boma Hotel in Nairobi for just less than two weeks. It was a beautiful hotel and the room was lovely and spacious. Everything was very clean. The staff were very friendly and attentive, they always did a little extra than expected on a consistent basis. The breakfast buffet was lovely in the mornings in the buffet room or on the patio. I was most impressed with the honesty of the staff. I actually lost my iphone in a Boma hotel taxi, and when I returned to the hotel 5 hours later they had it waiting for me. On that note the Boma taxi drivers were lovely and I felt safe driving around Nairobi with them.
The thing I like most about this hotel is that it is run by the Kenya Red Cross, which means the profits go towards local community projects instead of to a multinational corporation like other luxury hotels.

This is 'hospitality with a conscience.' ... more less
