The Boma Nairobi, Nairobi
Excellent4.0 / 5
Good hotel
Good hotel. We had a short stay between stopovers. Management was responsive to a fire alarm that went off overnight. We will return twice more in the next few weeks. Hotel facility is very nice.

Pleasant stay
If you are staying close to the airport, the hotel is ideal given the dreadful traffic. Being a relatively new hotel, there were several minor service glitches during my stay. The restaurant food could be improved, however, the restaurant duty manager, Cristobel, is outstanding. There should be a way to get to the restaurant without going outside, which is a design flaw.

Convenient, High Level of Service
We came in from 29 hours of flying, the pickup was prompt, the bell staff was extremely helpful, the checking and reservation was smooth. My son left some valuable items behind and we were able to retrieve them the following day. Overall great impression.

Perfect place when traveling through
We stayed at two different fabulous hotels in Nairobi. The Boma is beautiful, modern, excellent service, good buffet, close to the airport. I had the sense that the hotel is a bit remote and that there was nothing walking distance. So if you're just going in and out of the airport, this is a great place to stay. If you want to visit the city, I am less sure this is the place to stay. While we didn't take time to explore, the hotel provides a comfortable setting, a great place to rest after 24 hours hours of travel from the US. It has the added plus of benefiting the Red Cross. (For info on the second hotel, see my review of the Nairobi Serena Hotel.)

Airport transit hotel
Nice place, but only for airport transit stopovers, as the location is far from any tourist spots as well as the city center.
