I checked in on 2nd August 2013 in the evening: Met by the usual FRIENDLY office staff. Betty was on duty. Being tired after a long journey, when reaching my room, the tiredness was overtaken by the breathtaking appearance of the room: Clinical clean, beautiful linen and a perfect prepared room as if it was done JUST FOR ME!!!

I had an excellent stay at Godial's guest house. The location was quiet and felt very safe. There is a cute little garden, and the room and bathroom was very clean and pleasant. The staff was friendly and accommodating -- even though I got back after the kitchen had closed, they offered to make me a pizza. I only stayed... More

It's quite difficult to find a location with a good balance between budget and quality in Nairobi. I still can't decide if this balance is ok at Godial's. The rooms are simple but clean and everything you need is available. We had the pleasure to ahve room number 5 for a couple of nights and I think this is a... More

My experience of mid and low priced bed and breakfasts here in Nairobi have been disappointing due to neglected decor or broken items within the rooms. This lovely mid priced bed and breakfast pleasantly surprised me. Clean, well kept, excellent taste decor and lovely helpful staff. I had a single en suite which, although small, was plenty big enough. All... More

We had a reservation for two nights, however we stayed only one night. No matter we gave them very short notice and no matter hotel's policy, Godial's charged us only for one night. The hotel is located 30 minutes by taxi from the city center in a relatively safe area. It is close to some embassies and shopping centers. We... More

We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival at Godials after a 7 day safari...clean, comfortable, and cozy :) Staff was friendly and accommodating, food simple but delicious...free internet stations were also wonderful after being out-of-touch for so many days. Convenient, safe location (just under 30 minutes from JKA airport) with restaurants and shopping center 2 blocks walking distance away. Great quality... More
