This was the most amazing experience so far this year. The customer service is royalty quality. The food I can still feel the taste when I remember the food. Ambience was perfect. Looking forward to my next visit there.

The rooms are comfortable, clean and modern, certainly very stylish... the only weird thing was that there was no door to the bathroom! The bathroom was in a corner of the room, fully visible, with a change in flooring being the only demarcation between them. I was staying in the room alone, so it was fine, but I would have... More

Dear leela_shines, many thanks for your review. We are a happy you had a great experience with us. We indeed do have a few rooms which don't have a door to the bathroom (though the WC has a door in all of the rooms), the majority though do have sandblasted sliding doors. It is a great advise to mention any... More

As a business traveler, I require a receipt to perform my accounting. The hotel would not provide a printed receipt, only electronic. They have yet to provide the receipt or respond to my mult request.

Dear lis652, thank you for your message. In line with our environmental awareness program we have recently switched to electronic billing procedures, so that even on check-out all invoices and receipts will be sent by email to our guests. We of course issue printed receipts if a guest requires this already on departure. In case this has not been communicated... More

We stopped into this hotel for a brief stay before flying home after a weeks adventure in the Mara. The hotel was beautifully decorated and very welcoming. The staff were delightful to deal with and very helpful whenever we had questions. I shared my room with a colleague, which was a lovely and spacious room. The only downfall to me... More

The Tribe is as depicted in its website pics: a gorgeous boutique hotel. The hotel is aesthetically appealing although its design will not appeal to segments of the population. The included buffet breakfast was good: well presented with variety. Breakfast aside, the hotel's food was adequate although I'm admittedly not a 'foodie'. The staff were excellent, especially the dynamic and... More

Dear Wandering_Rick, thank you so much for your review, We are happy to read that you had a great time whilst staying with us on our Design Hotels promotion.

The Tribe is one of the best hotels I've stayed in, across the many continents I've travelled. The hotel blends the best of modern design and African art; rooms are comfortable (also with original artwork); bathrooms sleek and well-appointed. It is walking distance to Village Market (upscale shopping area) as well as the Friday Maasai market (good for crafts). Breakfast... More

My colleague and I spent 9 nights at the Tribe. Overall, we loved the hotel and location. Staff were incredibly courteous and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here, especially if you need to be in Gigiri neighborhood.

Due to unforeseen circumstances I ended up staying at this hotel for 4 months. It was great, right next to Village Market where you can do shopping and very close to a lot of the embassies. The staff became like me second family :)

Twice now. Cheaper than Safari Park. New, extremely well designed, modern fusion with African colors, wood, carvings, paintings, tapestries. Rooms are modern, clean, efficient. Staff is simply a joy. Sharp, pleasant, helpful almost annoyingly so. Food is worth the trip. Really good buffet and menu. MMMMmmmmm. Great night spots. But small. Both times, I hosted small conferences (4-16 people).
