Curio Collection by Hilton debuts in East Africa

Kwetu Nairobi, Curio Collection by Hilton

Hilton’s lifestyle brand Curio Collection by Hilton has debuted  in Kenya, with a fusion of historic charm and a refined contemporary design for an immersive guest experience.

Curio Collection by Hilton announced the opening of Kwetu Nairobi, Curio Collection by Hilton in Kenya’s vibrant capital, Nairobi. The opening marks the debut of Curio Collection by Hilton in East Africa and Hilton’s latest opening in the Kenyan capital, with a promise to provide guests with curated, unique experiences.

Kwetu Nairobi, Curio Collection by Hilton is located near the Central Business District, Gigiri, home to the United Nations headquarters, multiple embassies, and one of the largest expat communities in Africa, and is on the edge of the Karura Forest, providing the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

In Swahili, “Kwetu” means “our home” or “our place” and is central to the home-away-from-home experience for guests. The history of the land where Kwetu Nairobi was built dates back to the 1800s, paving the way for a one-of-a-kind hotel with a cosy charm, providing an authentic African experience that immerses travellers through its bespoke story. The property was formerly a historic home, turned into a guest house and finally transformed into a modern boutique hotel.

With 102 guest rooms and suites, Kwetu Nairobi comprises five interconnected buildings. The interiors merge historical details with a refined contemporary style. Many of the rooms and suites offer balconies and terraces, presenting stunning views of the forested landscape. Bedrooms also feature hand-blown glass pendants, beautifully detailed furniture with bedside tables inspired by old suitcases with buckles and leather trims. The lobby bar and reception have soaring high-coffered ceilings and a fireplace that creates a warm ambience during the winter season.
