I always stay at Chicho when I go to Marsabit. The rooms are quiet (rare in Marsabit) and comfortable with very good wifi. The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating and keeps the hotel in good order. There's not many places to sit at the moment, but this will change when the extension is complete. The breakfast could include some... More

This is the only Guest House in Marsabit that has rooms without dampness and noise free. The breakfast is excellent! The owner is always concerned about the welfare of visitors making the experience wonderful.

Chicho is a good place to stay in Marsabit. It offers clean comfortable no fuss en suite rooms, and it stands out in a rural Kenyan town that until Chicho started didn't have anything like it. On top of that the owner is super attentive, friendly, and helpful. We arrived late on the first night after 12 hours on the... More

Very happy to recommend. Good to see a young Kenyan guy who seems to have taken over his family's home and turned it into a guest house. The rooms are impressive, although I guess fixing up the restaurant is his next job. However, he fixed me up some great food during the 2 nights I was there when I was... More

I immediately felt comfortable as soon as I walked into my room. I am a vegetarian and it was awesome that Chichos offered some food variety! The staff is so friendly, like you've known them for years. Very happy and will definitely be returning!
