I stayed in the Kisumu Hotel (Maseno University) for two nights during a workshop with Kenyan partners held in the same hotel. I found the staff to be very friendly and the hotel to be quite good. The rooms were small but clean, with good mosquito netting above the bed. The mattress was quite hard, but I like that. The... More

The phrase you don't want to learn is "hakuna maji" when you check in to a hotel. Meaning "no water". There are always water issues. I had a room with water but it smelled like a sewer! The beds are comfy and mostly clean but the rooms are bare bones. The a/c works sometimes. Many rooms are dark with windows... More

A/c wasn't working and my colleague was given a half warmed through tin of soup in the coffee shop. Not somewhere I plan to return to, although they did find a good car hire company to get me to Nakuru this afternoon

We arrived in Kisumu on 3rd June ...and stayed one day only. The rooms are tidy, but of lower quality finishing - old carpet, poor locks, hard mattress, toilet taking 20 mins to refill, loose taps, light not working, loose and poor window lock. There were no general information leaflets or fire notice (the fire point was near the room.... More

This was one of the lousier places that I have been to. It does not offer much of the surroundings (it is close to the central place of the town where you can do the shopping and take a walk) and it is not far from the airport. The staff was hopeless (other than the guy who helped us with... More

The only thing working for this hotel is the convinient location. It has all the facilities available but the management is not working hard. Service is poor with very unprofessional staff. Rooms are ok but need a bit of sprucing up. Water from the tap is brown. Food is ok but not exciting. This hotel is very overpriced for what... More

I was taken to the hotel by Kenya airways (another useless airline) for an overnight stay following a cancelled evening flight from Kisumu. I had my doubts about its quality because I had never heard of it. I was surprised that it is actually called a hotel - poor quality food, served by useless waiters; water trickles in the room...

Easy to access from Kisumu Airport and secure location at the CBD of Kisumu town in Western Kenya. Can do better in food (freshness is the key). I was here for business visit and decided try a new place owned by Maseno University. Lighting is good, tap water light brown, furniture including bed (for the room I booked) squeaky and... More

Part of the university, said to be a training place for its hospitality students. Nice pool. Bar. A/C. But a bit old, old fashioned and run down. Internet not working (well). Staff try... More
