I have stayed at Chicho twice now. Boru and his staff are very welcoming and make huge efforts to ensure that guests are comfortable (including providing take-away breakfast when you have a long journey to Nairobi ahead of you...). It is less flashy than the other (newer) hotels in Marsabit Town, but that is to its credit as it mean...

Recently, I spent a week at Chicho Hotel and what a delightful surprise it was! An oasis in a dusty town - there's no getting away from the dust, but Chicho does its best. The food is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The manager is as skilled and attentive as you'll find at a 5-star in...

Chicho Hotel has a home-like Feeling. A case of home away from home. It is quiet, has efficient and friendly staff and fast Internet Services. Most importantly, the Manager gives you a personalized service, be it meals or room service, despite him being an architectural engineer! Such measure of humility and humbleness to deliver very good services

Chicho is a cosy place in marsabit town and walking distance to the center of the town. The rooms though small, are enough for the traveller who needs a place with great wifi connection and tasty meals.

I stayed at Chicho for 3 nights. It is a very good base to visit or work around Marsabit town and to visit national park. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner are nicely prepared and tasty. The owner and the people running the hotel are very nice.
