I started the trip at the Kempinski. Felt like Munich - great, if that is what you want. On the way out, I spent two nights at the Boma, fairly close to the airport. About 1 year old, beautifully designed. "Boma" is a collection of houses, and that is the design motif. The colors for carpeting, walls, etc. aren't cool Scandinavian, they are African. I indulged for the larger room (really a suite), a great bargain and strongly advise all to do so. Well designed, beautiful decor, full on modern, stand alone shower. The food was also good, but all with a local flavor. Vegetable lasagna with diced carrots! One problem (wireless too slow). The evening manager was all over it, very polite, professional, found a better area, offered to move me (11 PM). In the AM, back to standard high speed.
Now my favorite place in Nairobi.
