Strategically located, the Boma delivers what it promises to deliver. Friendly staff, beautifully designed and the cuisine is tantalizing. The aura is scenic coupled with state of the recreational facilities and the rooms are more than a home away from from.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect and of course with an handsome cost

The hotel was generally nice. The room was spacious and worked really nicely to repackage, take and nap and shower in preparation for a 24 hour travel day. The power did go out three times over the 7 hours we were there, for short periods of time. The restaurant which was serving a Buffett had no open tables at 1:30pm so we went down to the bistro was was good food and a nice quiet space. I tried out the spa for a mani/pedi and the service was very nice, but the actual painting left something to be desired, but the everyone there was extremely nice. We left Monday in the evening and it was about a 15-20min drive to the airport.

Excellent service received from the staff at Boma Hotel. I was very hungry and needed a quick snack before heading to their also wonderful gym. I had some delicious tomato soup and bread rolls.
The waiter also went out of his way to get me a banana and an apple that weren't even on the menu. I highly appreciated it.
I also recommend the chicken wrap. It was filling and delicious without being too heavy. Everything was great value for money.

An elegant hotel with beautifully furnished rooms, an elegant dining room and an outdoor pool. The service is wonderful and the staff is most accommodating. The hotel is an architectural delight! It is close to many attractions including the Karen Blixen farm museum and to the airport.

This was my third stay at the Boma - I stayed in January 2016 and a few weeks before this review at the start of my Kenya safari. The Boma is a great place to stay - competence and attention to detail reigns!

Early breakfasts are possible (starting at 6am), and they let you linger in your room past checkout if you have an afternoon airline departure.

The restaurants are top notch - great breakfast and even better dinner! The WiFi is strong in the rooms and the beds and showers are nice. The staff answer every reasonable inquiry with "no problem" and a smile.

The Boma is convenient to JKIA and Wilson Airports and also Nairobi National Park. It is also close to the Galleria shopping mall and other attractions.

I will keep staying at the Boma each time I am in Nairobi.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good and have air conditioning
