      Wonderful staff!

      The staff were wonderful. Extremely professional and going above and beyond, using their initiative to make my stay as stress free as possible. As much as all of the staff were extremely professional and worth their weight in gold, I must single out Jane, my driver from and back to the airport. I have rarely encountered someone who uses their own initiative to resolve problems, for example when I was stuck in a really long visa queue on arrival, she thought about checking if my number was on WhatsApp, and seeing i was online, sent me a message to tell me where she was etc. I was worried being in such a long queue that the driver might leave, thinking they had missed me, but because Jane used her initiative, we could communicate and manage each other’s expectation, removing all the stress, and on top of that she was warm, friendly and helpful (like the other staff) - thank you Jane!

      Nice clean hotel in Nairobi with helpful staff. Rooms were large with good decor. Note: mosquitoes can be a problem even in good hotels in Nairobi so always ask for the extra can of mosquito spray for the room, or the cleaners will spray for you. Menu in restaurants limited if you are staying for several nights, but food well prepared and tasty and staff helpful with allergies. Nairobi can be chequered as far as feeling safe, we found this hotel to be very safe with good security. We would stay there again.

    • 2.0.Poor

      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.

      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.
