The Social House – A Preferred Hotels & Resorts Hotel In Nairobi. Kenya

A distinctly novel property for guests wanting to discover the road less travelled.


February 14, 2020: Preferred Hotels & Resorts – the world’s largest independent hotel brand representing more than 700 distinctive hotels, resorts, and residences across 85 countries – proudly announces its latest addition, newly opened and distinctly novel The Social House in Nairobi, Kenya.


The down-to-earth, occasionally off beat but always genuine property represents a refreshingly unconventional approach to hospitality on the Kenyan scene. The Social House represents a Melting Pot for getting people together in a manner that is a little more personable and informal than the ordinary. Unusual cuisines; unexpected events; untypical meetings; unorthodox interiors; unconventional bedrooms; uncommon people all come together for an experience that goes beyond the fleeting.



The Social House: ‘Social’ a catalyst for getting people together and ‘House’ because there’s a more personable and informal way of doing things is ideally nestled in the heart of the leafy suburb of Lavington (within easy access to the city’s business hub and cultural heart). The House offers 83 bedrooms, most with 24 square metre spaces of simplicity, style and common sense, plus 6 larger bedrooms for those who wish for a little more elbow room.


Food and drink is a global affair with Our smoldering Urban Brasserie, a Kenyan Coffee Roastery bar, a Bold, Simple Farm-to-table Dining and our rooftop Peruvian Melting Pot – each entirely unique in character and cuisine, but all shaped as places for togetherness and sharing. The House also features a gym, a lap pool, a garden terrace and a retail ‘wall’ offering unique gift items and select local fashion accessories.


Designed in a modern aesthetic and with an emphasis on sustainable living, The Social House effortlessly combines locally sourced fabrics and materials with internationally recognized amenities for an authentic sense of place. The House actively promotes community initiatives; and around every corner and in each nook exists a story waiting to be discovered.


Whether for business or a little pleasure, The House offers every amenity a traveller would enjoy in the comfort of their own home as well as unique surprise touches sourced diligently by the team. The Social House describes it as ‘1.3degrees from the equator and 180degrees from the ordinary’.
