I've been living at Alkesh Apartments for all of 2019. The buildings are clean and modern, the staff is friendly and helpful, and Alkesh himself is great! Haven't seen any other apartments in Kisumu with the same type of standard. The outside area is really nice, and it is easy to become friends with the neighbors. It is also close to the city centre, but in a quiet area.
I lived in Alkesh' apartment for 4 months together with a friend. We were very happy we stayed at this amazing place! The apartments are clean and spacious. There is a common pool en garden area where we met a lot of nice people during the time we were there. And maybe the best part is the rooftop where you have the most beautiful sunsets. Alkesh is the best landlord you can have! He is very nice and helpful. Also, the staff is very friendly even laundry is being washed for you ones a week. I know for sure my time wouldn't have been the same staying in another apartment and would truly recommend everybody to stay in Alkesh Apartments when being in Kisumu.
I stayed at Alkesh Apartments for about six months after having tried many other options. There's no doubt that this turned out to be the best one and quite a wise decision that made my stay in Kisumu comfortable. The place is better than described in the pictures and the facilities are amazing. Plus, there's a gym and a pool that comes very handy in an otherwise small city with limited things to do.
Spent the summer in the Simba house. Very welcoming and accommodating place to stay! Couldn't recommend highly enough. Gym and pool are in pristine condition and all of the staff are so kind. A great spot to meet fellow travelers who've come to Kisumu for research, jobs, internships, etc.
Stayed in the Simba-house with our group of eight people for three months. We could not have been luckier with our accommodation. We felt like Alkesh Apartments was the perfect hideaway place, where we could relax after workdays. Pool area is perfect, many sets of garden furniture in different locations so you will surely find a perfect place for yourself to chill. Hammocks and barbecue available. Views from the rooftop are breathtaking. Rooms are just as pictured in the description. There were no unpleasant surpriser for us, everything was just as it was shown here on tripadvisor. The gym is on the smaller side but has everything you would need for a workout. Also the possibility to use the video instructed yoga and workouts is amazing. The atmosphere at Alkesh apartments is very welcoming and it truly felt like a second home during our stay. The location is good, very close to the city center but still on the more peaceful side. We always felt like we were safe and home at Alkesh. Housekeepers and guards are all lovely people and it makes the stay even more comfortable. If I will return to Kisumu, I will not think of any other housing than Alkesh Apartments as it is simply the best.…
