Excellent hotel, great staff, every little detail is attended to. Great for vacations and family (big pool), but a bit far from the city center, if you are coming for business - allow over an hour to get downtown.

Great staff, good food, good service, rooms need a bit more size but acceptable if one is on short trips however longer stays may require more space. Breakfast is excellent and allows you to eat beside the pool as long as they clear and wet the pool area early. i only had one chance to eat outside and the rest... More

The staff, the food and the hotel itself made me tongue-tied.

I can't say enough about Tribe. I travel across the globe and this is my number 1 hotel. It comes down to people and service and from the time I book my trip to return home I am in contact with staff. They remember my name, my family and previous conversations and you feel like family.

We decided to have a light snack and drinks at Suite101. The waiting staff communication seemed below standard on arrival when we asked for menus. We then sat down hoping for the best - a new waiter turns up a takes our drinks order and thereafter not to be seen again! No drinks arrive for 30+ mins. Walked to the... More

I was impressed right from our airport transfers. I loved the modern feel to the rooms, which were clean, and comfortable. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. I was made to feel extra-special when guest relations prepared a chocolate platter for my birthday! I look forward to travelling to Nairobi again, and staying at the Tribe Hotel..

I had never been to Kenya before, so really didn't know what to expect from the hotel. I was overwhelmed by the professional, friendly service. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - and should I need to return, I will definitely stay at the Tribe again. Great experience.

Hotel is perfect for business travel. It has all the amenities necessary to support meetings and networking. The absence of a door separating bathroom and bedroom would render it non-functional for more than one person in a room due to lack of privacy. The flea market next to the hotel has good quality authentic goods.
