Great views over Kisumu from the rooftop bar with cool seating and very reasonable drinks prices. Excellent food also available on the rooftop bar. Rooms average; clean enough and a decent size. Worst aspect of our stay was that we had to get up early for our flight so tried to go to bed early - was impossible with DJ... More

At the end, the hotel was ok...the food is nice, the bed clean and the staff friendly and helpfull... BUT expencive for the place( for the same price you get a room in a 4 stars hotel in Malindi). Not an hotel for Italian standards. The rooms are large, but shanty and old and the bathrooms are horrid and far... More

If you're on a budget, the Duke of Breeze is a good option. Rooms are nothing fancy, but they are adequate. The best part about staying here though is that you can enjoy the rooftop bar with its free wifi. If you want to enjoy a couple of Tuskers without going into town (it's basically in town so that wouldn't... More

I've stayed many times at Duke, and will continue to. But the rooftop bar is getting too popular. It seems to be THE place to watch soccer or football games, and the open courtyard from the bar down to room floors allows all the noise to keep hotel customers awake until too late. The sheets were pretty threadbare this visit.... More

Bright big very clean quiet rooms, lovely staff who make you feel at home. Amazing rooftop with great views. Fast internet and wonderful food. For me a real home away from home!

All in all this is probably the best value for money you'll get in Kisumu, but I was not impressed by the rooms or the establishment in general. The rooms are relatively clean, have a fan and hot water, but are very run-down and poorly maintained. The roof top bar is excellent, though, and is a very enjoyable place to... More

We stayed here as a family for 4 nights Xmas 2011 Its basic but central clean large airy rooms with hot showers and as all the other reviews say the roof top bar makes it the place for a drink in central Kisumu. Wycliff is a great host at this bar and all the other staff were also very friendly... More

Excellent value for your money, room rates include breakfast, but you can get a lower rate without breakfast. Rooms have single or double beds, with bathrooms en-suite that have western toilet and hot shower. Long-term stay rooms are also available. Roof-top bar is excellent, food is great (I recommend the fajitas and pasta), drinks are pricey by Kisumu standards but... More

Don't expect the Intercontinental Hotel in Kisumu. But by Kisumu standards, the Duke is good. We had a little trouble with the circuit breaker for the hot water a couple of times. And the front desk staff didn't know how to solve the problem, opting to make us wait until the morning when the engineer came on duty. And if... More

This is one of the places I would like to stay in while visiting Kisumu. The staff there are not there to not only serve you but to make friends and make you feel at home too! Their rooms are the most spacious and I noticed the repairs and innovations that makes it of great value! The food is great... More
