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

The is a beautiful hotel, but definitely expensive. The breakfast buffet is very good. Most of the guests are on business, many from area embassies and UN personnel. The staff very professional. The rooms are well-kept and clean. Security is very good. The one drawback is that it is up in Gigiri about $15 taxi ride to Westlands/Parklands were most... More

In many ways the Tribe Hotel seems to be a top notch, super stylish and comfortable place to stay, well located close to the Village Market and Gigiri district in Nairobi where the United Nations, embassies and the rich are to be found. The designers have had lots of fun putting the multiple levels and flows of water around the... More

This hotel is close to the UN, Embassy belts and Village market and that's why its popular. Downtown you can get better hotels. We stayed 3 nights and had following complaints. Build work going on next door can be heard in the rooms, especially east rooms as you face the hotel. We asked to be moved without success. Lots of... More

I travel a lot, and that is an understatement. Visit the spa to press your reset button. The experience was just what I needed after an exhausting week. Kudos to someone I think called Amar at the spa reception who managed to schedule me at the last minute and was really pleasant.

I recently stayed at the Tribe Hotel for 4 nights. The Land Rover taxi service from the airport was luxurious, punctual and friendly. Check in and check out were friendly and efficient. The email communication in advance of my stay was excellent with Evangelise and Phyllis booking my spa appointments with all my preferences as well as arranging my safari.... More

As a luxury travel writer for world-adventurer.com I've experienced many hotels in Africa. Tribe Hotel, though a standalone brand, did it right on the first try. They don't hold back in terms of luxury and accommodating guest requests. The rooms are really plush with a complementary minibar and high speed wifi. The bathroom is an open modern design. What's unique... More

I recently stayed at Tribe hotel and had a lovely time. I was in the business suite so I had plenty of room. My only concern is the lack of info about free local calling, so I was a bit surprised when I received the bill. The staff was excellent and breakfast was really good. Don't use the hotel cab...

I stayed at the Tribe Hotel and was lucky enough to have a witness in the form of a good friend who is also from Johannesburg. The unanimous and overwhelming view is that this is a hotel to be placed at the pinnacle of one's list in terms of accommodation, ambience and general experience. A breath of fresh air in... More

Now that we have direct flights between Abuja and Nairobi, Tribe is the perfect place for a long weekend getaway. This was my second stay at Tribe and it was fantastic again. The service is the best that I have experienced at any hotel in Africa. The attention to detail by all staff is amazing. Food service was great. Room... More
