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.

Spent two weeks at this hotel on business. Staff were friendly and responsive. I had an electrical issue - at midnight- with a few of the outlets in the room and maintenance arrived to fix it within minutes. Rooms were decent sized (I had a standard room with a king), comfortable, and modern. Daily breakfast was very good with food... More

Nice hotel with spacious clean rooms. The hotel is strategically located within a walking distance from Village Market. Enjoy the shisha severed a the bar (which I think located at the fourth floor). My only complain is that breakfast was not diverse.

Nice to return to the Tribe again after a couple of years absence, layout is mostly unchanged, though there is now a cafe type area on reception level with a sweet and savoury pastry counter and the bar moved down to be part of the restaurant. Service is hit and miss depending on time of day and staffing, sitting in... More

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
