I stayed at the Vic for two nights during a field trip. The rooms are great, with lovely fittings, lighting and artwork, and are relatively quiet despite the hotel sharing a compound with a pub and a big supermarket. It's a great place for business travel, with good dishes to choose from for dinner. I never really took my time... More

The hotel is situated behind Nakumatt Mega City within the same secure compound which is unfortunately right next to the city dump, but I have been coming here for a few years now and I have never noticed a nasty smell in the air once inside the compound. The hotel staff are all very polite, friendly and welcoming and the... More

the Vic is one of the relativley "newer" hotels in Kisumu. Its location is convenient but spoilt by the presence of a pub nearby, streaming noise to guests that may be light sleepers. The rooms are otherwise great, the conference facilities are good. The food quality is of good standard, though they may want to redo their dining room to... More

I spend twice one night at the Vic Hotel in Kisumu and I really enjoyed it. The rooms are well furnished, very clean and confortable (with mosquito nets in sufficiency, two at the windows and one around the bed; in Kisumu, it's a must). The only thing is that there was no trashbin in the bathroom. For a women, it... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice. Once in June 2013 and the next time in October 2013. The first thing that might trouble business travelers is that this hotel is a B&B kind of property. Although they do provide you with lunch and dinner on request, its not the hotel's primary calling. The location can be considered on the... More

That is my number one option to stay in Kisumu, as am usually there for business. Vic is the perfect business hotel. Comfortable rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, good ambiance, not to forget - free wifi! It also has an excellent restaurant next door - Monami.Try the pizzas there. Very good for business travellers.

The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Hotel location is excellent and in a nice environment behind the shopping mall. Staff were great from booking to check-in. Nice sized swimming pool. Breakfast selection was excellent.

A little tricky to locate in behind a large mall complex, and a new wing currently under construction, I was also concerned about the garbage dump next door. Surprisingly, except for a horrible smell outdoors once during a light wind, I did not experience any smells indoors, nor was I inconvenienced in any way by the construction. The room was... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurants next door are serving good food at a reasonable price. The compound is secure and for me the hotel was next door to our Kisumu office. This would have been a great experience if it wasn't for the garbage dump next door. On Sunday we had... More
