The Social House – A Preferred Hotel & Resort in Nairobi, Kenya

News |

Posted 15 January 2021

A distinctly novel property for guests wanting to discover the road less travelled using VingCard’s contactless entry solution for the new normal of Hospitality.

The Social House Nairobi, a down-to-earth, occasionally off beat but always genuine property represents a refreshingly unconventional approach to hospitality on the Kenyan scene. Afro Exports Ltd. has partnered with the hotel to provide VingCard’s Essence door locks with Bluetooth Low Emission (BLE) Mobile Access Control solution. This luxury hotel desired a locking solution that could blend in seamlessly with the hotel’s unique design, while adapting to the Industry’s changing needs during the Covid-19 pandemic. ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions’ BLE Mobile Access solution, that is integrated through the hotel’s HOTEZA App, provides guests with this alternative solution as guests use their mobile devices to check in, avoiding the need to visit the reception desk. Guests subsequently access their guest room using their mobile access digital key in place of a conventional keycard. This provides enhanced convenience and reduces contact with potential surface area risks.

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. For the uniqueness of the hotel, they preferred the minimalistic design of VingCard’s Essence lock that encases all electronic components within the door itself leaving only a sleek door handle and RFID/BLE reader visible. VingCard Essence eliminates the unsightly appearance of more traditional door locks and can blend in with, and even accentuate, a hotel’s unique style.

Afro Exports Ltd. is proud to partner up with The Social House in revolutionizing the hospitality industry to cope with changing trends.
