I stayed here with my two children (1.5 & 6 yrs). The pool is great, but there is no service there so be prepared to look for towels and drinks. The resturant has a good kids menu. The food is good and has nice portions. The breakfast buffet is not the best I've seen but it's satisfying. The service in... More

The service downstairs in the restaurant leaves A LOT to be desired. One particular night, I spent over 2 hours there for dinner and I was alone. Don't order the St Louis Ribs! They do NOT taste anything like ribs in the states! Additionally, if you're in a hurry at breakfast, do NOT order a pancake! It will take 20+... More

Stayed for four days at Tribe for business and it couldn't have been more convenient. The rooms are clean, well maintainted and the service is outstanding! From concierge to housekeeping, the service is absolutely professional and prompt. They really go out of their way to assist with whatever issues you have. The hotel is located in the diplomatic area which... More

Jambo! I was surprised to find the warm hearted welcomes all over kenya, but the tribe really redefined the word hospitality for me. Each staff member I came across was so friendly I actually wanted to get to know them, and I did!. Ofcourse the rooms, food etc were up to the mark of its name but I cannot emphasize... More

I regularly travel to Nairobi on business and had wanted to try The Tribe Hotel. I figured being one of the highest priced hotels in Nairobi, it had to be as good as The Kempenski, The Fairview or The Serena hotels. Hotel Review: The hotel has a wonderful continental breakfast with made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit. Well-prepared and beautifully delivered. Lunch... More

Nairobi has a reputation for being a little unsafe for the "mazoongu" traveller so I was really relieved when we arrived to see that security was very tight and once inside the big gates I felt extremely safe. The food in the restaurant was exceptional with chefs cooking meals in front of you to your taste. Lovely pool area and... More

I stayed one night at the tribe. When I checked in, they confirmed that the rate was for bed and breakfast, and I joked back, "bed only, I will be leaving before your serve breakfast". The receptionist offered to make sure that night cook would make me a breakfast to go. I take 15 early bird flights every year and... More

I've stayed several places in Nairobi and Tribe is my favorite. The rooms are modern and beautiful and the staff is there for you 24/7. I really love the indoor/outdoor concept. Perfect for Kenya. The Nest (hookah on the roof) is one of my favorite spots.

The staff is super and the amenities are very nice. It's a beautiful hotel and they focus on customer service. The location is adjacent to a major mall, with a great food court and some fantastic shops, so it's very convenient. The only drawbacks are the very slow Internet (strange in a country that prides itself as a major IT... More
