Sankara Nairobi is proud to announce that it has completed the second successful Safehotels audit achieving the highest Executive level of accreditation for its excellence in safety and crisis management. The certification confirms that Sankara Nairobi focuses on key elements of guest security and that it has appropriate plans in place if ever there is an accident or any kind of emergency.
“Security and our obligation to the safety of our guests and staff are of primary importance to us. With Safehotels certification as an international verification of our standards, potential guests and clients have a proven reassurance of our performance in the crucial area” says Mark French, General Manager at Sankara Nairobi.
Andy Williams of Safehotels asserts, “As the leading business hotel in Nairobi, Sankara Nairobi understands the value, importance and expectation guests place on safety and security. In meeting this expectation, Sankara Nairobi is again awarded Safehotels Executive Certification, the first hotel in Africa to do so.”
To be awarded Safehotels Executive Certification a hotel must meet over 200 independently assessed safety and security international best practice standards, then maintain them year on year. “To achieve the highest level of standard takes dedication, resource, attention to detail and extra commitment from the hotel management, employees and owners; attributes which Sankara Nairobi clearly both demonstrates and celebrates with their Executive Certification” Willliams continues.
