Friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms were clean, however the bathrooms varied. The toilet was not flushing in our first room and staff were quick to move us to a different room. Breakfast was okay. Good location and easy to find. The bakery next door has some nice sweets. Only fault was that the hotel is located next to a... More

This has always been a popular spot for a meal and/or tea. They have plenty of variety from junk food to wholesome meals. We asked for a platter of chicken biriyani; the portion was large enough for two. The rice was good quality,well cooked. the chicken was a roadrunner therefore a bit tough. I would have preferred it cooked longer... More

It is an average hotel located in the heart of Kisumu. The food options are good but they run short of several items on many occasions. Good value for money though and it has a good clean and spacious ambience.

I was in Kisumu and needed a hearty meal, being mindful of hygiene and affordability. New Victoria Hotel didn't disappoint on these. I love the simple menu of local cuisines. And the pastries are ever fresh!

It's okay for booze and chips. That's about it. The pool is clean though...now I am just going to type out a sentence to get to the requisite 100 words. Meh

Like the title says I love it here. Food is simple but simply good, stay are friendly and location is great. They do the simple things well here: service quality price and comfort. Would I eat here regularly? Yes. Would I recommend? Yes. It's not luxury but for the price range they've got everything right.

These guys are good with swahili dishes. I often prefer having my milk tea from this place. I highly recommend this restaurant for those who want to feel the taste of local Kenyan dishes, apart from fish.

The hotel has very high standards for the area. The food is excellent and the drinks are cold. The staff are very friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for them. If you have a yearning for something that is not on the menu, they will go out of their way to bring it to you.
