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.

Dear friends, When I first was assigned to go to Marsabit, I felt like embarking into the unknown. Quickly my perception and view of Marsabit, changed, much thanks to the brilliant and friendly manager Mr Boru of Chicho, and his staff. I have stayed here for three weeks, and despite being a very travelled person, with experience around the globe,... More

Very comfortable. Quiet. Lovely, welcoming staff. Great food. Close to city centre and government offices. Also, close to Marsabit National Park. Beds are becoming "bananas". Bathrooms needs some TLC. But management is very conscientious and the hotel is a very pleasant place to stay.

Excellent rooms considering how remote and tiny marsabit town is. Better than most places in bigger towns. Has secure parking, wifi, hot showers and friendly staff. When in marsabit, there is no better place to stay.

Everything is done to make your stay comfortable and relaxing - nothing is too much trouble. The kitchen is very clean and produces tasty specialties such as biriyani, but it will also whip up a fruit salad for you if you fancy something light. Its in a good location, is small and cosy, is super safe - what more could... More

The hotel is in a great location in town and has everything you need -- a comfortable bed, hot water, good internet, breakfast, and very helpful staff! If I'm ever in Marsabit again, I'll be back! Rooms directly across from the breakfast area may be a little bit noisy in the morning as they set out breakfast.
