The Social House Secures Runner’s-Up Spot in Global Travellers’  Award 

16th September 2021. Nairobi, Kenya. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  The Social House, Nairobi, has been awarded with one of two run ners’ up spots in the ‘Best Urban Hotel’ category of National Geo graphic Travellers’ annual Hotel Awards. 

City hotels worldwide were judged by the following criteria: “We  wanted to reward the hottest new hotels on the block — temples of  slick design, stellar service and feel-good vibes that draw in the locals  as much as the travellers”. 

The awards commented on The Social House: “This is no ordinary  African city boutique hotel, expertly dodging both colonial tropes and  the corporate feel of many regional options. Instead, locals pack out  

four fabulous bars and restaurants, with menus ranging from Scandi navian to Peruvian-Japanese. Bed down in one of 83 rooms with  smartphone controls, and contemporary décor”. 

The Social House was awarded as runner-up, alongside Capella in  Bangkok, with The Hoxton in Rome as the overall winner. 

Commented Juliet Njogu, owner of The Social House, “This award is a  culmination of the creativity and passion of all those who conceived,  developed and have operated the House over the last 3 years. It’s  especially gratifying that this was a global award and run by National  Geographic, one of the most respected and long-lasting travel  brands. And to be mentioned in the same breath as Hoxton and

Capella – being market leaders in some of the most competitive  European and Asian markets – reflects that our sights have  

always been bench-marked against global standards and in sup port of our uniquely quirky and sociable brand.” 

The National Geographic award follows on the heels of The Social  House winning the Hotel Bedroom & Suites Design category in  the 2020 Society of British & International Design Awards. 

The Social House has also been nominated as Kenya’s Leading  Hotel and Kenya’s Leading Boutique Hotel in the International  Travel Awards, while its Peruvian restaurant, Inca, has been nomi nated as Kenya’s best restaurant in the World Culinary Awards.
