We did a one night stay at the hotel and we had an excellent stay.The rooms are clean,the food was absolutely delicious and the staff are friendly. Since we visited on Christmas day,we were not able to swim because the pool was packed.I recommend that the hotel guests have a separate pool from the mall visitors for privacy reasons. We will definitely visit again.

The service was excellent! As vegans we were well looked after by the restaurant staff. The breakfast Aloo Paratha was fantastic! The rooms are clean, air conditioned and serviced regularly. Hot showers and fresh towels. The swimming pool, with bar and restaurant attached makes for relaxing afternoons and great vibes. Recommend this place for sure!

Incredible service throughout our entire stay. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The manager, Minaz, is incredibly attentive and ensures the hotel guests have what they need. The food is great with an excellent selection for every meal. The hotel is also walking distance to the supermarket if you ever need to purchase something. An excellent place to stay when in Kisumu!

Vic Hotel hosted us for an excellent conference. The top management were superb, and that service and attention was seen among all the staff. Really appreciated the concern for quality and detail, as we hosted 40+ people in the hotel for a conference. Well done by the management and all the team!

We stayed at the Vic hotel with a large medical group in Nov/Dec 2022. The staff was very accommodating and responded to our needs for laundry, cleaning our rooms, etc. They allowed our large group to make use of the conference rooms which was helpful for our daily meetings. Rooms and facility was well kept, updated, and clean. We ate breakfast and dinner there most days and the food was delicious and filling. Additionally, it is a great location next to the mall. Would definitely recommend a stay at The Vic!

We stayed for about two weeks and had an amazing experience at this hotel. The staff here are amazing and go out of their way to help you. It is located in a quiet area but near a shopping centre which is convenient. The poolside is great and next to the restaurant "monami", which has a good cuisine. Nearby is DaBar and "Garam Masala", which offer great food and drinks as well. Rooms are cleaned and restocked regularly. We had a great experience here thanks to the the staff and management. We will definitely come back.
