Nice designed rooms, right close to the road, and accessibility to the town and other amenities. Very clean. Most preferable to a Business Traveler, who just wants a room and Breakfast. Not much leisure. The room was very clean, nice decor, the guard at the entrance was very friendly, can't remember his name. Elva at the reception was very professional and hospitable, always readily and willing to help with a smile. Preferable for short stays.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Imperial Express. Through the help of Donna and Judith we were able to pull a surprise birthday for my mum. They were really helpful! Mum was so happy and she really loved everything at the hotel. The rooms, food and hospitality! Definitely the best hotel in Kisumu

Very clean. Great location. Great value for money. There is a need to have a parking lot for guests even if the cost is passed onto the guests. Great food in the restaurant and the guys at the entrance door was very very very helpful

For short stay guests, not more than 4 days. The menu is soooo limited which made me believe this is meant to be a B&B, the alcohol selection is limited as well. I wish the hotel could Ask NEMA to assist with the noise regulation coming from the club next door.

Located in town, the hotel is very clean with professional staff. Not sure if they have packing but the team can provide this information. Perfectly made food and excellent services. Close proximity to the airport a plus.

I stayed here for one night for bed and breakfast while in Kisumu town for business. The rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonably spacious. Also they are well equipped. I quite enjoyed my stay. Staff are eager to help and very friendly. Breakfast was great. I particularly enjoyed the matoke in the morning. Keep it up guys!

Save for the lack of parking space in case one is driving, and the limited options for breakfast, this hotel is very nice. Rooms are very clean and spacious. A/C works well. Staff is friendly and helpful.

The hotel offers very good affordable accommodation services in a very strategic location within the CBD. The rooms are very clean and comfy. The environment is exceptionally quite despite being located in the middle of the city. It offers idea place for relaxation or business.
