Mid-April 2011, saw the entry of a newcomer into the backpacker accommodation facilities in the hospitality industry that was officially launched. The newly established facility is The Delta Hotel located at the heart of Nairobi city. The hotel is along University way, opposite the Central police station and the University of Nairobi’s Main Campus.
The hotel brings with it competition to the already existing hotels within the same locality. This includes Comfort Inn located at the junction of Muindi Mbingu Street, Parkside Hotel located on Monrovia Street and down Harry Thuku road to the Boulevard Hotel.
Delta Hotels offers cheap accommodation to backpackers as well as close proximity to social amenities and major city attractions like the National Museum, Galleries, Cinema Halls, the famous Nairobi national theatre where one can enjoy a play as well as Shopping Malls. The Nakumatt Lifestyle shopping complex is close by where you can find almost anything. The launching of the hotel had Kenyatalii crew have an entire tour of the facility courtesy of the management.
