What a place. You get a comfy bed, cooked breakfast, running water and the most friendly service going around ... all for a really cheap price.
New Victoria Hotel Kisumu is safe, secure and the cafe downstairs does a mean curry.
Not to mention the bakery which is also below the building.
there is no point staying anywhere else in kisumu.
This place has it all. Everywhere else is over priced and rubbish
After staying in tents out
in the bush working with tourist company the New Victoria hotel seems like a 5
star hotel to us. We and every member of our team always love the place and
feel able to relax after a number of weeks of hard work.
All i can say its a great place with good staff we have never been disapointed.
Some people may think that a more expensive hotel is better but from my experience in Kenya Honest staff make the Hotel a few Mosiquitos getting in through ripped nets are the least of your worries.
As for a beer I frequented the "African Bar" next to the Mosque a set up with tables and chairs on the pavement the bloke who ran it would "escort" you back round the corner to the hotel if you wanted ( I never felt the need as I found it a safe area).
Also if you like drinking your beers out side as I do the "Railway Institute" near the railway station is a great place
