Great location, close to the Airport. Over price, service was ok, staff was friendly and try as hard as they could to cover for old and under maintenance property, bedsheets stained with previous guests Bodley fluids. That is my experience, overall take your money somewhere else.

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our stay at The Boma was fantastic and if ever in Nairobi again, this will be my go-to hotel. The room and amenities were fantastic, the food at The Tembo restaurant was delicious and the staff was helpful. There was a miscommunication/oversight for one of the details of our stay and the staff were apologetic and corrected the situation.
