My room was $80 (single person) but even that was over priced for what I got. The shower and bathroom area (photos) were grungy. The bathroom made you not want to use it. The basic single bed itself was fair but the sheets were suspect. The dinner (buffet) was terrible. Spaghetti or over cooked quartered fish with bones, rice, fruit and cabbage salad. Look, I know that Nairobi is bi-polar; either great five star at $250+ a night or the backpacker hotels. But, really, unless you are backpack, Peace Corp or trying to do Africa on the cheap then sometimes in not so great places like Nairobi you have pay more to be safe and comfortable. I found the Sankara Nairobi Hotel for $156 (ouch) and I head there tomorrow. MGH Not recommended.

Stayed here together with a big group in January.

Pros:
- The standard was quite good (for the price)
- Good service from the staff
- Free internet (or, it costs money, but so little that they give the login information to you for free)
- Nice swimming pool about 50 m from the hotel, free to use

Cons:
- Food is not so good, the meat was always chewy and/or bony and breakfast was quite dull
- Thin walls - you hear everything that's going on in the hallway

I don't know anything about the price since this was part of a group journey, but overall it's an ok place to stay. Very nice to have a pool :) I was in Africa for almost 6 weeks, and this was the nicest place we stayed - however, our trip was very low-budget.

Stayed here for the first time the night before and the night after my safari in the standard room. It was average, but compared to other places, it was good enough for the price. Here are the pros and cons:

pros
- relatively good price (paid about 50 euro/night breakfast included)
- lots of security to get into the premises
- free internet
- rooms are good size
- I tried the dinner and breakfast, and both were very good. Lots of food, lots of choices, and it tasted good. Breakfast was eggs, bread, fruits, baked beans, bacon, cereal, juices, tea, coffee. Dinner one night was chips, potatoes, salad, ugali, rice, soup, bread, fish, beef stew, fruits.
- very friendly and helpful staff
- there is a store in the lobby that acts as a mini post office and place to buy phone cards. very convenient!

cons
- walls are paper thin. Expect to hear your neighbour singing or people's conversations in the halls.
- I stayed in room 311 one night, and the wifi signal was too weak to reach - no wifi
- whole place is a bit dated. Rooms and beds are a bit old
- there is simple push lock on all the doors. No chain lock or bolt. Staying by myself I did not feel very comfortable with that.
- Rooms clean for the most part, but the first night I checked in there was a mud stain near the bed....
- hardly any power outlets

Overall, good place to stay if you just need a reasonably priced place to sleep a few nights. The breakfast included makes it a good deal.

Room Tip: don't stay near the stairs (too noisy) or in room 311 (wifi signal too weak)

This is our third stay at the MGH. Rooms are simple but clean, with ensuite bathrooms. There is plenty of hot water, in fact, trying to get a comfortable temperature for the shower can take a long time! The staff is very helpful, and there are guards to insure safety. We usually take two meals a day in the restaurant. It is adequate. Breakfasts include eggs made to order, cereals, beans, chips, bacon, sausage, and fresh fruit. Dinners always have several meats (beef, chicken, lamb, fish, goat), vegetables, soup, and lots of starches.
The guest house now offers free wifi, but it is spotty and unreliable. If you are having trouble with a signal, move to another part of the guest house.
MGH is just a short walk away from a bus/matatu stop, which can take you directly downtown.
Because we stay at least a week or more, we opt to pay in shilling instead of dollars, which always reduces our bill, even with bank fees.. Do the math between the room rates, before deciding which is best for you!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor

The hotel is very clean with plenty of hot water and the free wifi; the staff is very friendly and helpful but room was not quiet to relax and sleep. The breakfast is perfect (includes Delicious omelets and alots of fresh fruit). Rates seem high ($90-110 USD/double). This hotel is far from city center. I would stay never again!!!!!!!!!
