This hotel was preceded by its reputation in my experience, but upon arrival, it had the ambience of a beautiful resort tucked away in lush scenery and the soothing sights and sounds of pools/ponds/fountains intricately scattered throughout the hotel. Rooms were very large , the bathrooms were spacious and visually stunning. Staff was helpful and friendly. Cons: The hotel is... More

Shopping mall right next door. Rooms are clean, bright and comfy. Tours can be arranged right from hotel. Half day safari was great if you do not have a full day to spend. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable!

We went to the jiko restaurant here for a family brunch and we were greatly disappointed. My dad found hair in his food and when we brought it to the attention of the staff, they tried to brush it off.. Our waiter was friendly but was waiting on several tables so it was often a long wait for drinks. After... More

It was a real departure from the usual chain hotels in many places to enter into the exuberant atmosphere of the Tribe Hotel. Tribe had responded punctually to my request for an airport pickup that worked - already a good sign. The Tribe Hotel is an outstanding statement of contemporary Africa accomplished through its architecture and the variety of material... More

The hotel is clean with quite good service, not intrusive and rather efficient. The food is nice and it sells delicious chocolate. Shuttle service to UNON is also quite handy, and its proximity to the village market convenient.

I have stayed at the Tribe 4 times (a week each time) when I was working in Gigiri. I loved staying at the hotel, the rooms are great, food is great and the service is top notch. I will return any time I am back to Nairobi. I particularly love the breakfast buffet, a great variety of items and the... More
