Reading other people's review I thought I had arrived in another hotel. Maybe it was because of the low season, I felt like no one (human) had stayed in my room for many weeks. Other residents had taken over. It was all a bit dirty too. I changed hotel the next day. The owner (or person welcoming) was a nice... More

Stayed at the Kivga Holiday Bungalow for two nights with family. The bungalow is located very close to the ancient city so travelling to and from the sightseeing wasn't a hassle. Shops and eateries aren't far away either. This house-turned-bungalow had four rooms; one in the ground floor, two in the first floor and another in the third. All rooms... More

We ran into this guest house by accident and were immediately convinced by the friendly, easy going, elderly owner, who also organizes trips on demand, and the great house. Best stay on our 3 week trip.

I spent two days at Kivga and it was a very pleasent experience. You get a beautiful view form the balcony and surroundings are pretty calm and relaxing. Loved the breakfast too. It was pretty hot outside the house, and the air conditioned room was a blessing. The owners were very helpful and nice.
