another trip to The Boma and using the confernce centre. As always the entire team do all they can to help and please. My room in The Boma is always clean and tidy, the bar staff always helpful. Sitting outside at the bar outside of Boma Inn brings a relaxed and less formal option to The Boma. I will return... More

Great for conferences and meetings. Food is not great though.We asked for a la carte menu but they couldn't provide it.Buffet menu can be boring to the taste.We were surprised that the Chief Chef came to tell us that they can't fix meals on special order.

This is where you want to be! A room may be a room but the Boma offers a home staffed with friendly staff, whom are highly trained within service and hospitality. The food is great and the facilities are above expectations. To top it all off the proceedings go straight to the Red Cross. It doesn't get better!

Nice Hotel, very good service. The rooms are extremely large, clean with all the necessaries. Location can be Ok for tourist reason but a bit far from the city center. The breakfast was very correct with a good coffe taste and excellent service. The unique negative point with the pool which is not to big was sometimes the Internet connection.

We stayed here for a night en-route to the usual safari. The hotel was quite comfortable and the hotel staff was quite helpful and courteous. We had dinner here - ordered room service. The food was quite good too. Everything worked and was quite clean and tidy.

The hotel sits close to Nairobi National Park but away from downtown and the chic uptown. With all the gates and guards it looks safe to me, a very important aspect these days.
