Rise with Africa: Rise with CityBlue

CityBlue was opened in January 2013 to bring a much needed mid-scale, international quality to a locally born hotel chain across sub-Saharan Africa.

Since then, CityBlue has built a reliable and passionate team of local and international individuals from the ground-up, instilling training, standards and a sense of family with two sub-brands to reflect the CityBlue genres: Urban by CityBlue, the boutique business offering with a fabulous restaurant as well as CityBlue Hotel & Suites, the true business hotel.
