I arrived Tribe for a 3 day Forum holding at same location. It was an amazing experience. Staff were nice, the interior design at the hotel was excellent. I enjoyed every part of my stay and the Nest bar on the 4th floor was a good escape while within the hotel. The proximity to the Friday - Massai Market and... More

We booked Tribe Hotel for our anniversary, excited to spend a romantic afternoon and evening here together. Upon checkin we were told that an event was happening so the pool was closed from 2 - 9pm, the very time we had planned to sit by the pool and enjoy the sun. As there is no other area to sit outside,... More

This place was very comfortable and close to diplomatic community. Walking distance to a marketplace and few restaurants. Nice lounge that has a view if the pool and a solid restaurant. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Would stay again.

This hotel is a bit over fussy, it tries to be a bit trendy and designer but is too fiddly. The hotel could do with a good clean from top to bottom as it is looking a little sticky and a bit grubby. Having said that everything works ok and the staff are nice.

It’s a very nice hotel with a relaxed atmosphere. It looks chic, it’s clean and it’s well maintained. We had problems with noise 1 night when the World Cup was on as our room was right next to the bar. Besides that it wasn’t a problem. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent and the staff were super friendly.... More

Overall a very nice hotel but with a few flaws. Nice - clean room, nicely furnished, good TV stations and nice flat tv, lots of hot water and clean sheets/comfortable bed. Food at the restaurant was good and breakfast buffet was fine with hot and cold dishes, good variety. I liked the gym very much. Spa was nice and the... More

Great design ideas in the common areas, very stylish and comfortable. Easy access to the local Village Market. Not sure how often it happens but there was a noisy pool party all evening and into the night on the Saturday night of my stay. Other than that it was peaceful and I will be booking the Tribe again for my... More

My husband, who works in South Sudan, and I met up for a four-day reunion in Nairobi. We had lived there for 12 years in another lifetime, before the Tribe Hotel was even built. Tribe is located out of Nairobi's center, within the Village Market complex. Staff are excellent, service superb, and rooms quite good. Having said that, I still... More

This was a great experience. It was convenient to shopping and very quite and secure. I especially enjoyed the pool and the interesting decor in common areas and the rooms. 100% the place to stay for the business traveler.
