Jameel, a former lawyer from London and Paris, created CityBlue Hotels as sub-Saharan Africa’s first multi-jurisdictional, mid-market hotel growth business.

CityBlue began in Rwanda in 2013 and is now recognised by industry experts as one of Africa’s fastest growing hotel groups by pipeline; the chain has hotels in Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda and a pipeline in those countries as well as Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa. CityBlue’s African hotel business is owned by Diar Hotels, a member of Diar Group (which Jameel co-founded).
