Cicada hotel is located centrally in Eldoret. It is affordable, at kshs 3500 per night. The hotel is very basic and the food too. The bar is well stocked and the barman when I was there, an old man, was entertaining. Only downside is that he only had one music CD that played same songs for 2 nights I was...

Room: Adequate but noisy at night. Cleanliness: average. Door persons very friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant was ok, service a bit slow. Location of hotel is good, not far to Tusky's. Internet service slow and unreliable. No air conditioning.

The place is underwhelming. The bathrooms have shower curtains and in the room I was assigned to they were visibly dirty and tattered. The food is not worth it and their brewed coffee is the worst decision you'll make there. Their staff however were cordial if that counts for anything.

The employees look happy and are always willing to be of assistance, I noticed that from the entrance of the hotel where I was met by the security guards I almost felt...

I enjoyed the friendly and polite demeanor of the staff especially Monica. She was wonderfully friendly and very professional. Cynthia (restaurant) was also very warm and prompt. The room facilities were very clean. The rooms and food are very reasonably priced for a hotel in the middle of Eldoret town. My only qualms was only that the picture quality from...
