I stayed here for one night on a filming trip. We were a big team and we were well received by the friendly staff. The rooms are cozy and comfortable with air conditioning and wifi access. The food was fine and there is also a swimming pool.

Gym was disappointing, but they did have a few cardio machines and some weights. Locks on window were broken. Smelled heavily of bug spray. Large landfill less than 100 feet from hotel smoked and...

We hadn't planned a stop in Kisumu, but due to late night car troubles, we needed to find a safe place before driving back to Kampala .The Vic was absolutely terrific--great rooms, spacious, good facilities, clean. Excellent breakfast choices and the staff were above the norm. Given the options, we were so grateful to find such a safe, clean place....

Stayed here in November 2016. It was my first time to stay here. Has very friendly staff, nice spacious rooms and good food. Everything worked from Wifi, Hot showers and the TV. The mall is also nearby incase you need to buy anything. I highly recommend it.

Loved being here. Its a little bit on the end part of the town ... and there is a new bypass that avoids getting into town and avoid traffic to get to the hotel. The staff here is amazing and quite helpful. Food is 50-50 good.. they can improve a lot. There is a relatively well stocked supermarket just right...

I stayed here, In September for 4 nights. I have been visiting Kisumu on and off for 11 years with voluntary work and normally stay at the Sunset which seems to have gone downhill a bit. This time I needed 3 rooms, and for me, a bit of Kenyan friend and my sister and teenage niece on their first visit...

The wifi is fast enough although they could add more choices when it came to breakfast. I will definately be staying here whenever i...

I was in this hotel twice on this trip and I was actually looking forward to get back, that second time. Why? It is very well taken care of: the tasteful decoration, it is very clean, the staff is really friendly, it is spacy; the entry hall, the rooms, I simply enjoyed being there. Though our company has special rates,...
