I spent 4 nights at Godial's in July 2015 and spent most of my time at the guest house. It was a nice little sanctuary in a good neighborhood in Nairobi -- I felt very safe and secluded. There is a gate and 24/7 security in multiple parts of the house. Breakfast is pretty good -- they have yogurt and... More

I stayed 4 nights in Godial's. The room was good, close to the gate. Not that quiet because of an irritant dog! People were complaining. Bed and shower ok. But everything needs maintance. Breakfast a bit poor.

This is a nice place, which feaures an open air restaurant and a small, shady garden. The rooms are quiet and clean. Wifi is available in all rooms (if not, ask they'll fix it). I always return to this place. Breakfast has improved compared to 2014.

Great place. The staff and management are friendly and hospitable. I stayed in a single, shared-bathroom, which was small but comfortable. The included breakfast was good - eggs available, plus a spread of fruit, cereal, coffee, tea, etc. The place is very clean and well kept-up. The rooms are around a courtyard rather than on a hallway, and the cafe... More

Pros: very reliable wifi (no small thing in Nairobi), great location, really friendly and helpful staff. Cons: high priced for what's offered, very small rooms, old linens, mediocre breakfast. The most annoying thing is that they give you one tiny bottle of water and charge for more water; there's no water filter. In a city where those unaccustomed to the... More

In Kenya when one comes to visit you, we give a glass of water as a welcomed gesture, so we agree that provision of water is a basic hospitality and that is why we provide you with a complimentary bottle (2 glasses) daily and in addition there is filtered water normally during breakfast. Thank you for you compliments and we... More

i was staying in the external rooms and even if very small they had all the necessary and were cleaned. shower curtains can be improved (after a shower all the floor was wet) and the lock on the door was not really safe, maybe an extra lock can be put. Breakfast choice can definitely be improved (only bananas as fruit)... More

Cute little place which is conveniently located. Took me les than 15 minutes to get to Westlands around rush hour. I had the cheap room which was tiny but with clean shared facilities so still good value for money.
