Wifi in the hotel, but not working properly. The room was spacious and clean and beb was clean too and comfortable with net provided. Hot shower... More

This hotel is a scam!! we were given a room with two doors and the staff told us one of the doors was broken so they locked it. Surprise, when we went out for a stroll someone with a spare key easily entered through the broken door and stole our camera and all our money. The police was very professional... More

I think some of the poor older reviews have been responded to with new renovations and hotel improvements, because I didn't experience any of the problems they described. I stayed at Genevieve Hotel on a budget safari. The room was clean, came with soap and a towel, and the double bed was comfortable. The shower water was lukewarm, but nothing... More

Hotel Genevieve is a simple pleasant hotel a few minutes walk from Nakuru main shopping street. Rooms are simple but reasonably comfortable and clean with basic bathrooms and amenties (TV, clean towels, soap). Staff is extremely friendly and hotel serves very simple but decent breakfast and dinner. They have laundry facilities and even a bar. Ideal for a short stay... More

First impression is good from outside but room and bathroom just average o.k. for one night stay though Staff were helpful and courteous specially kitchen staff. There is a Pub attached to the Hotel in a separate wing, it was noisy as the TV was in full blast. Continental dinner was good, breakfast just average. Well, I would not recommend... More

I also enjoyed the hospitality of the hotel workers, they were very helpful and made me feel welcomed and at home. Food was fantastic, tasty and healthy. I especially enjoyed the organic vegetables such as sweet potatoes which... More

Wish had read previous reviews before staying! My wife received an electric shock from the shower head as detailed by other reviewers. I am more disappointed in the third party who booked us in this hotel. Hotel is trying to be something it is not, outside looks ok but inside is, like its food, unappealing and creates a feeling of... More

The hotel is quite old. It is also noisy and some of the rooms smells of cigarettes. The rooms were shabby and the bathrooms didn't look very clean. The restaurant was old and the food offered didn't impress at all. There was a problem with the electricity in the bathroom cause while taking a shower you can feel some electrical... More

Bad, disgusting, noisy, dirty. This supposed to be a hotel, but more like a hostel. And a bad one. My room had bathroom but not all rooms had. Those who didn’t have used the restroom next to my room. I could hear everything! Just as what happened in the hotel like I would have been slept on the corridor.
