We had lunch with my husband and was rather dissapointed by the service. Wanted a crispy pork starter & was told its not available as customers were complaining its not good. Ordered for claramari & it was just okey. The food took long and we had to keep calling the waitress to be attended to. Very dissappinting experience. The hotel... More

I stayed at Tribe for three days and it is very comfortable, adjacent to Village Market shopping mall and close to many embassies and not too far from the city centre. The urban design makes it very different and it gives it a unique style of it's own. The best part is the kitchen and the pastry that are conducted... More

This hotel caters to business travelers as it is near many embassies. It is modern in design but lacks the African old world charm which I prefer when in Nairobi. I also did not like the open bathroom as it afforded no privacy when using the shower or sink. Although the location is far from the center of Nairobi, we... More

Spent two brilliant nights in a junior suite and loved every moment. Stunning design and architectural elements throughout and attentive service. Atmospheric music. Restaurant buffet was very good as well as menu and food during the evening. Gym is small but well equipped. The added advantage of this property is its proximity to Village Market so you pop out for... More

Well appointed and designed business hotel in the safe area of all the high profile embassies. Good food, nice rooms with good beds and clean. Slightly further away from town during rush hours but worth the extra 10 minutes drive. Not cheap like most hotels in Africa but well designed with friendly staff. Just ask for a room on floor...

Most impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Proximity to The Village Market a definite asset. The bathroom design is a bit odd, but other than that, I would not hesitate to return.

I loved the piano playing at diner. I loved the food and my room. The staff wasn't particularly great but they were kind and helpful. My bed was fantastic and i think that contributed to my oversleeping. :) Overall i loved the experience.

Visited for business. Beautiful hotel. The staff were awsome. Room was small but really well appointed. The location is great as the Village Market has some great shopping and food. Felt very secure. Highly recommended!

For the price, I expected much better. I booked a Loft Business suite, only to discover on check-in that the suite was all on one floor with much less separation of work and sleep areas than shown on the website. The service was variable. Food in the restaurant was not what I expect at a 5 star hotel. My colleague... More

Simply happy with the customer care. Especially with the porters and drivers. Very helpful and genuinely friendly. Architecture is wonderful. A bit of disappointment in the eating area. But generally it was welcoming and wonderful
