Nairobi Mayfair Hotel: The Southern Sun Mayfair Hotel in Nairobi has shut down. The hotel group owned by South African hospitality group Tsogo Sun has also fired all its employees.

According to a report that appeared in the Business Daily on Friday, the multinational says it will close the hotel at the end of this month, opting out of the market in which it has operated for a decade.

“Tsogo Sun Hotels confirm that the Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi in Kenya will not renew its lease and will officially cease operations on the January 31, 2020. Employee contracts have been terminated after due consultation. All staff have been provided with the necessary support aligned with the labour laws,” the company was reported.

The hotel had a capacity of  171-room. But over the past one decade, it has faced competition from multiple players in the hospitality industry. “The opening of the new properties saw the available rooms hit over 20,000. New signings over the past two years spurred the growth of the number of hotels in Kenya’s pipeline with the Hotel Chain Development Pipelines in Africa 2019 report showing that another 27 hotels will soon be opened in Kenya,” said the report in the BD newspaper on the Nairobi Mayfair Hotel.
