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

The guesthouse is small, clean, amazing staffs. I spend only one night over there. Location is not so good cause is far from Nairobi and far from airport, but the can pick up of and drop you off at airport if you need. My room was very small and basic, just a bed, little fan and simple shelves. The shower... 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

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Godials as we had to pass through Nirobe on three seperate occasions during a ten week vacation in east Africa and Madegascar. The staff are nothing less than amazing and all greet you with a smile. They accomodated last minute email requests for pick up at the air port or bus station.... More

I had a wonderful stay attending a workshop in lower kabete. Transport was always on time, after having a well prepared breakfast. The free wifi makes it even more convinient for professionals. I remember that fresh pizza that is prepared as you watch!!! Maseru, Lesotho!!

My husband and I spent a night at the godials. It was nothing short of amazing. Every one was helpful and gracious till we cheched out. Their prices are also pocket friendly plus its very convenient to travel to Nairobi CBD from there. I recommend it to anyone especially couples.

Godial's felt like home away from home. The exterior is beautifully landscaped; featuring potted plants, wrought iron arm chairs, tables for two - really, many interesting places to sit and chat with a friend or read a book. The guest house is also fairly quiet if one wants to sleep in. We were in a double room. It was spacious,... More

Godials was recommended to me by a friend who stayed in Nairobi for a couple weeks on a climbing trip. I stayed both going and coming from a one month medical assignment in Eldoret. They were fantastic - accomodating my early arrival (I had the inconvenient 4am flight). Everyone was incredibly friendly, and helped me with some local travel arrangements... More

As an English lady who worked in Kenya, I stayed at Godials on the odd night and then for weeks at a time. I always looked forward to my stays there and never felt let-down or dissappointed by the service provided. It is well located, secure and is in one of safest areas in Nairobi.
