Solid Place & Good Location

Posted May 9, 2015
I'm reviewing this hotel in comparison to two other hotels I stayed at in Nairobi; both for work (the Intercontinental (gross would NEVER stay there again) and the Ole Sereni (a solid 3 out of 5)). The Pros: Proximity to the airport (which also was good for my meetings - traffic in Nairobi is terrible and the roads suck so whatever you do, book close to where you need to be and budget at least 1 hour to go 2 miles in the mornings and afternoon/early evenings). The rooms (what a great respite after crazy days. Modern and clean. Bed was a little hard but I'm sure my chiropractor would have be thrilled. Nice desk area and ample space in the room. The Staff: genuinely friendly and very helpful to me (I used the hotel car service a lot ... try it, it isn't a rip off like other hotel car services). The ok: The gym ... nice and big 'enough' - nothing to write home about. The food ... I'd actually give this 2 out of 5. I ate most of my meals at the hotel and wasn't a fan of anything I ate ... sorry. The wifi: It was 1000x better than the Ole Sereni but still needs improvement. The bad: nothing really. Other than that picture they use as the main picture of the Hotel ... feel the place is actually nicer looking than that picture makes it out to be. Would I stay there again: Yes

Pleasant stay

Posted Feb 23, 2015 on Hotels.com
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.

Ett hotell att rekommendera.

Posted Feb 19, 2015 on Hotels.com
Kom på kvällen till Nairobi och chauffören på plats när jag kom. Väcktes kl 4 ,som vi bestämt på morgonen, och kördes till flygplatsen. Vad som kom som en överraskning var att hämtandet och körandet till flygplatsen inte var service utan kostade 25 USA dollar enkel resa, alltså 50 dollar. Dyrt! Hade varit mycket billigare att ta en taxi.

Always just an overnighter, but worth every penny

I use the Boma to catch my flight early in the morning. It is just so nice to check in, be welcomed, and everyone knows how to make you feel welcome. We just need a copy of you in the city !!!

Convenient, High Level of Service

Posted Sep 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
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.

An oasis near the Airport in Nairobi

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Every one is service oriented. Everything works
Cons: If we could replicate it in the city
Location: An oasis before getting on a flight very early in the morning, to a hardship post
With all those ratings -more words are not needed, other than - they should have a branch in the city that offers the same level of service, have the same facilities etc. If it was not for the fact that much of my business is in the other side of the city, Boma is clearly a front runner in Nairobi.
