PwC releases study on Nairobi hotel rooms


According to eTurboNews, global financial consultancy and audit firm Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) has released a study in Kenya dubbed “African Traveller Report”.

The study suggests that by 2017, Nairobi will be able to offer visitors a choice of 20,000 rooms, compared to the 17,800 currently available.

Next to open will very likely be a 5-star Radisson Blu, bringing another 256 rooms and suites to Kenya’s capital city, followed later in the year by two more projects  ?  the Grand Sapphire and the Golf View Hotel.

A Hilton Garden Inn is also under construction, and it is believed that a Four Points by Sheraton will also be constructed soon. Best Western is said to be keen to expand their Kenyan portfolio, and owners of the Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel are apparently advancing their plans to open their own brand of 3-star hotels named Acacia, the first of which will be in Kenya’s lakeside city of Kisumu.
