My week at Godial's was friendly, warm, safe and lovely. The place is rambunctious (kids and dogs), but I loved that over the sterility of a big hotel. The guards and kitchen staff knew me by sight, and owner Nancy was warm and welcoming at every turn. The kids and dogs made me feel like I was staying at their... More

We here at Godial's were really delighted to host you! Nothing pleases my staff and I more than when a guests says that they thought of our B&B as their home whilst in Kenya. I am glad that you enjoyed the lively environment from Superheros to snoopy, simba and the cats! Your comments and compliments are highly appreciated and we... More

Friendly and helpful guest house, conveniently situated in leafy suburbs. It is very quiet, especially at night, and very comfortable and secure. We liked the tasteful african decor in the lounge and dining room. The fresh pizzas were great but we were served a dry overcooked roast chicken when we asked for something Kenyan. They look after you and respond... More

I stayed at Godial's for a business trip, and felt at home right away. Very friendly atmosphere, relaxed and in a great location to get around town. The single rooms are small, but the terrace and living room are very nice (and quiet too!) so that you would not want to spend too much time in your rooms anyways. It... More

I first stayed at Godial's in 2011, have since returned several times. Single rooms are not large but sufficient, it's very clean, conveniently located, staff is delightful. At that price and location Nairobi's best.

The place was secure and had CCTV cameras. We had to catch an early morning flight to Mombasa and teh breakfast was ready for us at 5:30 am, which... More

The setting is nice but service is terrible. We stayed with our kids for three nights and really did not have a good experience. The first morning breakfast was great the next day we were told there was no sausage etc. One of the rooms we stayed in had molds on the curtains and was very stuffy but the other... More
