I recently stayed at a Boma Hotel that had its highs and lows. The food quality left much to be desired, often lacking variety and fresh juices. However, the saving grace was the refreshing abundance of fresh fruits. While the rooms appeared clean at first glance, a deeper look revealed mold in the bathroom grooves, indicating a need for thorough cleaning. The overall condition of the hotel suggests a significant need for rehabilitation, deep cleaning, and general upgrades. On the downside, the hotel's car services were exorbitantly priced, making Uber a far more cost-effective option. Despite these drawbacks, the standout aspects of my stay were the exceptional service provided by Esther at the front desk, making life easy, and the meticulous attention to detail from the massage therapist Frida. If you decide to stay, I highly recommend seeking out their assistance.
