It's an old hotel adjacent to the new Boma but has all ammenities you'd expect from a great hotel. Well while everything is quite old for the price you'll totally love the place. Service was great and generally I enjoyed my stay.

Charming courtyard with pond, shade trees, and comfortable place to enjoy a drink and a meal. Helpful service from friendly staff makes this an enjoyable experience for an overnight stay. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. For business you need to go to the much larger Boma Hotel across the parking lot. For all you foodies out there, the avocado... More

This hotel is perfect for an overnight stay. We checked in, room was clean and service good. Breakfast had plenty to choose from. Outside or inside bar and very friendly staff. Second stay. Would recommend.

Stayed 14-19 Aug. "Sister hotel" of the Boma in Nairobi - but at a budget price. Liked the following: - Soap Dispensers : Small thing but nothing more frustrating for me than landing after a flight and taking a shower just to use the soaps meant for the next morning. Soap dispensers always full with enough shampoo etc. - Location... More

I had an eight hour stopover between flights with my flight arriving in Nairobi at 1h30 am and the next departing at 12 noon. I took the chance and called Boma Inn after looking online on TripAdvisor. Hilda, who was the night duty Manager at the main hotel was really wonderful and arranged the reservation for me at the Inn... More

The staff was friendly, the rooms were on the small side but clean though. The hotel looks like it has never had an upgrade since the day it was built, and the food was average. I found it rather pricey given the circumstances and the hotel conditions.

This is an hotel -medium level - cheaper than the near, luxury, "Boma hotel". Rooms are comfortable but not so new (80's style); restaurant and facilities at the same level of the rooms but bars and gym of the main "Boma" (much better) hotel building can be used for free. Internet connection poor. Good choice to avoid the traffic jam... More

20-30 minutes from airport. Clean, comfortable, lovely room. Great restaurant (limited menu; give 20 minutes for order to arrive). Stable and strong wifi connection. Express laundry service. Small, functional gym, sauna, steam room, and massage room. (Boma Inn is adjacent to pricier Boma; as they are sister hotels, you can walk over and use the Boma's state-of-the-art gym facilities and... More
