A night to remember at The Boma!!
I had a one night lay over in Nairobi (wish I had more days at this hotel). I was promptly picked up at the airport. The friendly staff (including my driver)was an immediate sign that this beautifully designed hotel was the right choice. The bedroom looked more like a suite; with the luxurious feel of the large bed with the soft pillows; the etchings on the glass wall of the bathroom is a beautiful design feature. The night was quiet that made for a restful sleep. The next morning I had to catch an early flight to Kilimanjaro and had no time for a sit down breakfast. The chef put together a 'breakfast to go' box as suggested to me by the receptionist (great idea!!) On the way to the airport I enjoyed some hot coffee, fruits, and pastries while in conversation with the friendly driver. Am sorry I wish I could remember their names.I would like to thank them all....and tell them that I had a beautiful stay at The Boma!

Great big rooms and good & fast wifi connection
Big rooms and clean. 5* room. Management accommodated our request for early check in (7:00am) and allowed us to take our breakfast while waiting for the early check in time. We arrive at the hotel around 3:00am - 3:30am and had to wait for the early check in time of 7:00am. Unfortunately, the hotel has policy that they will charge a full night rate, even if there are available rooms, if you check in earlier than 7:00am. Wish management will be flexible on this and charge a minimal amount instead of a one night rate, since rooms are available anyway.

Comfortable stay near the airport
The hotel is a short taxi ride from the airport. The room was large and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom has a shower and a bath. It has a large glass screen in the wall between the bathroom and the bedroom. The lift looks over the central atrium. The staff were welcoming. We had to leave early so didn't try the breakfast but the selection on the breakfast menu was good.the hotel did offer to make a takeaway breakfast for 11 dollars each. Recommended for a comfortable stay near the airport.
