HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 February 2017

What a great hotel! We stayed for two nights the end of January 2017. We came in very late and initially were to stay at the Boma Inn. They were full and were transferred over to the hotel for no extra charge. I also had not received my luggage from my flight and the staff was more than helpful helping...

I stayed at the Boma for my first solo trip for work and could not fault it, the staff were exceptionally helpful, the rooms were stunning, comfortable and huge and the pool (though I didn't get a chance to use it) looked amazing, very clean and well looked after. The restaurants were lovely and my only criticism would be that...

We stayed one night and enjoyed it! Was pleasantly surprised when we realized that all profits went to the Red Cross- very nice added bonus! Our room was spacious and very clean. We appreciated all of the plug-ins as we had been traveling for awhile and all of our electronics were dead! Room was quiet and we had a really...

Beautiful hotel and lovely spacious rooms. The check in was effortless and the room decor is lovely. The staff are very polite and efficient. The only thing that let it down was breakfast ordered to the room. The toast was just sliced bread it hadn't been in a toaster, the coffee was instant, and the omelette quite dry I'd asked...

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi, the Boma offers a quiet and safe accommodation. The staff are very polite and helpful, catering to our needs making an enjoyable stay. Rooms are spacious and kept very clean. This is indeed a unique hotel operated by the Kenyan Red Cross Society offering "social hospitality"!

Another trip to Nairobi and returned to The Bona and its conference centre. Two weeks and as always the whole team both in the hotel and those at the conference centre provided excellent service. If you have a problem they will always try to help and resolve not matter how small it might be. Great to walk into the bar...
