Close to airport, clean, and nice staff

Posted Aug 25, 2015 on Hotels
I always stay at the Boma when I am flying into Nairobi from the US. I am just staying overnight and need to return to the airport the next morning. I stay there because overall it is a decent price and it is close to the airport so I don't get stuck in traffic. It is still some distance from downtown so if you want to sightsee or enjoy the nightlife this is not the place to do it. The staff are really nice and helpful.

Nice room but mosquito net was full of holes!!!

Nice hotel and wonderful staff, but the mosquito net in my room was full of holes and I killed two mosquitos in the room. I was able to clip the holes closed, so I could sleep. The restaurant staff were helpful and pleasant.

Close to airport, very disappointing

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Cons: Cleanliness, fittings should be tested to ensure they work. Bathroom should be spruced up, broken fittings removed, mirror reattached, grouting redone
Location: N/A
I booked this hotel close to the airport as I my flight was departing not long after President Obama was due to arrive and did not want to get caught up in traffic. Had planned to spend the day in a bit of comfort relaxing as my flight was at 11.30pm. I had booked a double/twin room and was given a single which was eventually changed to a double on my insistence. The room was noisy all night with staff outdoors talking and banging. The room was not over clean, part of the floor was 'sticky' and there was dirt and rubbish in the corner of the bathroom which had mould in the groupings, broken fitting at the end of the bath, a mirror that was not straight and was generally quite old. The television volume kept cutting out and making a buzzing noise as if there was some kind of short. The kettle only worked by holding it down to maintain the connection. All in all very substandard for the price that I paid. I left at 11.30am preferring to wait the 12 hours for my flight at the airport.

Very Pleasant Stay - would stay again

Posted Jun 30, 2015 on Hotels
Had a very pleasant stay at the Boma Inn. The hotel staff are very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are comfortable although not as modern as some. The room facilities are also good with tea and coffee making facilities, a safe and good toiletries and personal care items etc. They rooms were very well serviced, even with night-time turn down service. Although it is not as modern and 'posh' as the Boma Hotel (which is adjacent), you can use all the facilities in the main hotel, so it is extremely good value compared to staying in the Boma Hotel itself. We also had an excellent driver (Jane) from the hotel who looked after us brilliantly

A cost effective stay as advertised

While the hotel itself is older and in some need of modernization, our stay was satisfactory. The staff were excellent. WIFI worked as required.
