For many years now, Thika road users have longed to have an all-class modern hotel with style.
Thus the establishment of Centurion Hotel came as a relief to Thika Superhighway users whose thirst for a classy, and affordable hotel had hitherto been unmet.
It is a high-class African Continental hotel with a touch of Chinese cuisine located at High Point, Juja, along the Thika Superhighway, 30 minutes’ drive from Nairobi City.
Just off Thika Superhighway, the hotel features a secure and spacious parking space accommodating over 50 vehicles. From the deluxe hotel, visitors have a perfect view of the Thika Superhighway without strain.
Centurion hotel is an oasis of serenity in the heart of busy superhighway with stylishly elegant African architecture fitted with traditional African decor.
The hotel rooms, include free Wi-Fi and free water upon arrival. This elegant hotel has spacious, air-conditioned rooms with flat-screen satellite TV and a CD player. The modern bathrooms include amenities, a hairdryer and a bathrobe.
We give our customers the best at affordable rates. We consider this hotel to be all-class. Our rooms are very cheap ranging from Sh. 2, 000 and Sh. 3, 000 for executive ones including supper and breakfast, says Francis Munene, the hotel proprietor and Managing Director.
Our staff are cordial and very fast to serve; in a nutshell, we offer the best dishes at a price that even the common mwananchi can afford, he adds.
Centurion Hotel represents culture, tradition and cuisines which are just perfect for both domestic and international visitors.
We offer different types of experience/restaurant facilities to the visitors; it is solely dedicated and famed for its legacy, culture, royal preserver and regal dinning, says Munene.
Centurion hotel provides a discovery of traditional culinary taste and home-style cooking making it the best along the superhighway.
Wireless high speed internet is accessible in all public areas and meeting rooms. Air conditioned meeting rooms and easy accessibility for the physically challenged, he adds.
He adds that families traveling with children will find a national park kind of a safari destination matched by no other, with less tourist traffic, breathtaking open space and relaxation of mind.
Some of the politicians accommodated at the hotel recently are Uasin Gishu governor, Jackson Mandago, former Kiambu governor, William Kabogo, Kiambu governor, Ferdinand Waititu and his United for Kiambu partners.
According to Munene, the hotel rates are very affordable with a buffet going for as little as Sh. 500. The hotel stands in a one acre land and has exquisitely camouflaged structures.
It also prides in its three conferences and meeting rooms, a barber shop, salon and massage parlor making it a one-stop beauty and hospitality location.
At the top of the hotel is a well-furnished entertainment hall where traditional dancers grasp the attention of visitors with well-rehearsed tunes. Visitors can also enjoy affordable drinks as football fans enjoy almost-live play from the wide screens fitted in almost every corner of the hotel.
Munene says that the hotel which was established two years ago has become a hub of business-meeting with visitors recommending it their friends to fraternize the hotel services.
He however, stated that lack of an exit from Thika town is the main challenge the hotel is facing as motorists moving from Thika Town are forced to travel all the way to Juja Township before making a U-turn to the hotel, something he says is scaring away many customers.
