The manager asked every time if we'd left some valuable things in the room. That was at least suspected! But for the price we paid we've... More

A branch of the Riversand Hotel in busy downtown Kisumu, the self-catering annex is in a suburb reached by bumpy roads. I had a clean and roomy apartment, which I reached by public transport.
