City Lodge Hotel Group has announced the opening of its third property in Nairobi, Kenya, the 171-room City Lodge Hotel at Two Rivers Mall.
Situated adjacent the Two Rivers Mall in Runda, the property has opened its first phase of rooms and expects to be fully open by the end of February.
The four-storey hotel comprises two 20-seater boardrooms, two eight-seater meeting rooms, a swimming pool, a fitness room, a #Cafe for breakfasts lunches and light meals, a sundowner bar service, wireless internet, free parking and 24-hour reception services. One in every 50 rooms has been adapted to meet the needs of guests with reduced physical abilities. All bedrooms have en-suite shower facilities, with selected rooms providing baths as well.
The first 40 rooms opened on January 15, another 44 rooms will be available by the beginning of February and the hotel will be fully open by the end of February.
“We are extremely excited about the prospects for this hotel which is the biggest we have developed outside of South Africa,” said Clifford Ross, City Lodge’s chief executive.
“It is situated in an important growth node of Nairobi and will ideally complement our other hotels in the city and give impetus to our targeted East African expansion programme.”
While the group’s main focus will be on meeting the needs of business travellers, it will also focus on providing accommodation and associated services for leisure travellers visiting Kenya and East Africa.
The City Lodge Hotel Group owns and operates the Fairview Hotel and Town Lodge, Upper Hill in Nairobi. It is also developing the 147-room City Lodge Hotel Dar es Salaam in Tanzania which is expected to open in early 2018. It recently opened the 147-room Town Lodge Windhoek in Namibia’s capital city and expects to open the 148-room City Lodge Hotel Maputo in Mozambique’s capital in the second quarter of 2018.
City Lodge Hotel at Two Rivers is within easy access of the local United Nations headquarters, the Nairobi CBD, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the Karura Forest and various other attractions and facilities.
