My daughter and I spent a month in Kenya--did orphanage, womens health, safari and had a very wonderful time exploring this country. Our last 3 days were spent at the Tribe Hotel. What an amazing way to end a vacation. 5 star accommodation-3 years old and very trendy. It was well worth the money we spent to finally have a... More

Beautiful hotel with amazing service, great rooms and an awesome lounge on the fourth floor overlooking the pool area! conveniently located next to the shooping center if you need to go shopping for souvenirs.

I stayed at the Tribe hotel for 5 nights in August. Its modern, clean,has good food and perhaps very importantantly feels very secure. On the negative side its about 20-40 minutes away from down town Nairobi depending upon the traffic....and if youve never experienced it be warned as the Nairobi traffic can be very bad!. The rooms have free wi... More

Just a really really great hotel, super trendy, cool design, amazing detail and yeah just wonderful. Breakfast was really great, restaurant is really good, rooms amazing, superb facilities and such amazingly friendly and helpful staff. Their pool wasnt working so they offered us a day at another hotel pool which they paid for including taxi!

One night stay before flight back to UK, hotel opposite shopping centre (basic but maybe buy that last minute souvenir and a nice ice cream!) - standard rooms very modern with wi fi, tv, lovely shower, toiletries, fluffy towels, bathrobes and toilet area together with desk or table but incredibly small (any longer than a night 'asleep' and you might...

The important thing to know about this hotel is that is located at least 20 minutes from downtown. That can be good or bad depending on what you want. It's an excellent location if you need to do work at an Embassy or the UN. If you want to go to restaurants or other attractions downtown, it's a long drive... More

Great decor. Great food at their basement restaurant next to the pool. Nice location in the Village Market shopping center. Great architecture ande memorabilia of the Orient and Africa adorn the lobby. First class service. A little on the high side price side but worth a stay or a meal in their elegant restaurant.

Probably the nicest hotel you can choose in Nairobi. Away from the most chaotic parts of the city. Tribe is a "design hotel" which I normally shun since it is often used as an excuse for not having to operate with good service, amenities and other classic values of great hotel management. Tribe is a good exception to this. Great... More

I stayed at the hotel on a business trip to Nairobi. The hotel is convienent to various embassies and the UN Africa HQ. While the staff is attentive, some are not too friendly (about 25% are unfriendly). Compared with Asian (i.e Shangri-la) and European hotel chains, I'm scratching my head wondering how this is a 5 star hotel. I did... More

Great hotel for a coupleday stay in Nairobi for business or pre/after-safari. A few restaurants in this safe area. Very good hotel, excellent staff. Cheap and good SPA. Be relaxed, but prepare for electricity jumps. Lol!
