It is sad to see a hotel without slippers. This was a first. Kindly invest in them its cheap and very essential to have especially since you dont have wall to wall carpeting. another thing is a directory. dont expect guests to imagine the extensions for the hotel. these are simple and very essential things a guest requires.

I stayed here on business for two days. The owner is a great guy who you can tell takes pride in his hotel. The food is amazing and the pool is sparkling clean. If you are in Kisumu, this is a great place to stay.

Had lunch here with my sisters and 3 year old niece. Was disappointing that no child raised seat was available and my little niece struggled . The food was ok when it finally arrived. No fresh juices available. Staff were friendly though and it was lovely sitting by the pool side.

We had made reservations several weeks ahead of time.....only to discover they did not have the twin room we had requested. However they did give us a single at no extra cost. The staff really tried to be helpful. We had reserved 5 rooms for our team. The air conditioning did not work in some of the rooms....very disappointing. The... More

We have stayed here twice. It's a peaceful place in the hustle of Kisumu. Good security fencing and safe. Nice rooms with AC, comfortable. Can walk around a bit and has a nice pool. Food is also good on site so you don't need to leave if you don't to. Recommend the ginger curry soup with rice and talapia fish.... More

i spent a night here while on a road trip and this is a fairly good hotel with a brilliant clean swimming pool. service was fairly good. food is average with nothing fancy. The rooms however are brilliantly done and comfortable. I had one of the best night's sleep in their room (wine notwithstanding) :-)

Ok for a few nights, in a pleasantish part of kisumu. Decent hotel food for this price range (I ate mostly tilapia and chips). Wi Fi was sporadic but otherwise not a bad place to stay. Rooms were clean an staff very friendly. Did not see any cockroaches in my room.

After spending a number of days in the "outback" of Kenya, we searched Kisumu for hours to find clean, comfortable accommodations with running water for a hot shower. Late in the evening, after looking at seven other hotels which were already booked up (around 10pm) we finally came upon Le Savanna, based on TripAdvisor recommendations, and suggestions from another hotel....

I saw a previous review and the reviewer mentioned the stay was not up to U.S. standards, I would basically agree. However, the staff was very attentive and accomodating, especially Peter and Ezekiel at the front desk. The housekeeping was very good. The food was ok, they advertised buffets but ran out of food before the scheduled end. The pool... More
