Nice hotel. Stayed there after a long trip from the US. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a place fairly close to the airport. The food was good and service excellent. Will definitely go back if I return to Nairobi.

Comfortable spacious room, lovely breakfast restaurant with a terrace over looking a little garden. The pool was acceptable. The sports bar was just enough to watch the Euro games. Relatively close to the airport and very safe. The restaurants looked nice but the food is far from being the best in Nairobi so not recommended.

We stay here on the first night of our honeymoon. Even though we were staying less than 24 hours, they still made the effort to put petals on the bed and write us a letter congratulating us. The room was clean and comfortable and the bar stayed open for us. They also opened the breakfast early 5:30am for us to...

Stayed for 2 nights. Picked up by hotel car at the airport. About 12 miles to the hotel. Check in was quick, security good, restaurant good. A little noisy and a couple of minor issues with the room but overall pretty good. It's expensive but it's the going rate. I'd stay there again. I

We spent one night in this hotel before heading out for a safari, and it was the ideal place to begin. Plenty of outlets for charging up camera batteries, etc. Comfortable, well-furnished room. Lots of thought went into the design. Hotel staff was helpful, and the restaurant staff knew which items were gluten free. A great way to begin a...

I've been very happy with my stay at the Boma. Nice rooms and facilities, great food, friendly staff. Location is a bit challenging, but Nairobi has such terrible traffic problems, the location may not be so bad. Conference facilities are nice, public spaces are nice and clean, gardens are nice for receptions. I'd stay here again!
