First budget hotel coming to Kenya


According to eTurboNews,  budget hotel group Tune Hotels will open its first property in Kenya next year.

The group, which has a large base in the Far East, will open a 280-room hotel in the Westlands area of Nairobi, which has, in recent years, begun to rival the Central Business District.

The hotel will reportedly not have a swimming pool, meeting facilities, a gym, or a spa and will concentrate purely on the room and food business at prices said to be in the $100 bracket.

Once the hotel in Nairobi is open, the group plans to expand the brand in the Eastern African region with Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) reportedly next on the list, before also seeking expansion into Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi.
