Stayed at the Tribe and was supremely satisfied, despite the feeling that all good American travelers find their way to it. It caters to an international crowd, and shouldn't be avoided. Right next to the City Market--teeming with shops and restaurants--it's well-worth finding and staying. I felt comfortable, safe, and supported by a very courteous staff.

I just went to Nairobi for the first time on a work trip and Tribe Hotel made my few days in the city a hugely enjoyable experience. The staff were very friendly and made sure you felt at ease. The hotel has a beautiful modern feel - artistic and uncluttered - making it a great space to catch up on... More

I just spent a few nights at Tribe on a work trip and couldn't have been happier with my stay - the service, the room and the hotel facilities were all on point. Every staff member I dealt with was attentive and friendly, and often went out of their way to be helpful. I just loved the bed, and were... More

The hotel is beautiful and an art lovers paradise. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. It is next door to the Village Market which is a shopping complex where you can get food, watch movies etc. It is not far from town and is accessible by both public and private means.

My experience was beyond amazing. From the time my friend and I walked in to the time we left, the staff was friendly, respectful and very helpful. - Massage: Those ladies had heavenly hands. - Tour: Our tour guide Benjamin was very knowledgeable. You could tell he takes pride in showing off his country. He answered all of our questions... More

Very nice hotel, the location is great and room very nice. I like the architecture and layout. Food was nice but, Caesar salad not good, breakfast perfectible, soup too salty. The chef should be more vigilant. Rooms great but I had in 323 a small wiff of sewer smell, maybe coming from the tub which is in the room. Should... More

One TRIBE One NATION.....was a refreshing slogan that welcomed me to this amazing hotel as I logged into their WIFI to finalise my meetings in Nairobi. Of course I should start back at the reception where my arrival was made seamless by a TEAM of vivacious personnel. The porter service was very helpful with a detail tour around the room... More

This review is a little late (okay, a whole lot late!) but it remains one of my best experiences ever, hence the need for this review. In December 2012, the hotel was offering a "pay for two (2) nights and stay for one (1) more night free" for East Africa Residents on bed and breakfast basis. It was a good... More

On my business visits to Nairobi, I stay at the Tribe Hotel any chance I get. The setting, with extensive landscaping creatively curved out of a sloping valley, is very tranquil. Rooms are attractively designed and decorated, and are kept meticulously clean (the open style bathrooms are a bit of a challenge if sharing the room). Staff is friendly, courteous... More
