Checkout Hotels.ng’s awesome new office space in Yaba [PHOTOS]

by | Aug 12, 2015

The last time we reported about Hotels.ng, the company was hosting a Machine Learning Hackathon for local developers. Before that, the online hotels booking platform was in the news for raising $1.2 million in Series A funding. A remarkable milestone for the Mark Essien led company that last raised seed funding in 2013.

But we bet you didn’t know that they also recently moved to a new office space in Yaba, Lagos. Unless of course you attended the hackathon. We have seen our fair share of cool office spaces this year and I think it’s safe to say the Hotels.ng is just as cool.

Allow us to take you on a tour of the new Hotels.ng office space.

Outside

The new Hotels.ng office has actually been re-purposed from a colonial building. They managed to retain that renaissance feel on the outside. Most of the real refurbishing work was done inside but we will get to that later.
