I really don't know why people are praising this hotel.Its overrated!!The place is squeezed with parking for only 4 cars.The guard will not hesitate to direct you to park next door in a garbage dumpsite.Toilets are dirty,broken windows and there's largely a sense of dirtiness.The kitchen staff/waiters have white shirts which are so stained that I literally lost appetite for...

I found the staff friendly and cooperative. The rooms were small though and the Wi-Fi offered a weak signal. Nevertheless, it was still a great bargain and the local dishes served were delicious. I'd recommend it for anyone on a budget. The staff can get a little noisy and so is the bar area if you are located on the... More

Have traveled africa and am now qualified to know what to expect. By african standards thought this place is overrated on trip advisor. Place was not clean and not well kept. Rare in africa where there is always a plethora of staff. There are better options in kisumu. Not disastrous but place needs work sorry to say.

My room was cleaned daily, windows closed and net down to keep me safe from mosquitos (which are intense here in Kisumu). Most hotels give attention to foreigners more than locals but here i felt like a true... More

I spent a night here and I was blown away by the service offered. Right from the security officer at the gate to the staff at the reception, they all make you feel instantly welcome. Long before I even saw the rooms, I was certain that I was in the right place. I can't remember how many 'welcomes' I received... More
