The Tribe is a shi shi hotel in a beautiful residential area of Nairobi. It is located beside a small upscale outdoor mall. The decor is modern, clean and upscale. The room was lovely and service impeccable. We enjoyed a quiet intimate dinner on the pool deck under the stars. Two of the neighbouring tables were located on a small... More

The rooms are small, trendy and clean. The hotel is away from the city center and a 5 minute walk to a large outdoor shopping center. The mall has several dining options- fast food and sit down. I was hoping to enjoy a day at the spa, but couldn't even bear to sit in the changing/relaxation area due to the... More

The Tribe hotel isn't really in downtown Nairobi which makes for a long drive from the airport but its co-location with Village Market makes up for that. The hotel is modern with an interesting design in the common areas as well as the rooms. Wireless internet access is so-so but included in the room rate. The breakfast buffet, while not... More

Where do I begin? I came to Tribe after staying in a horrible hotel in Kampala. When I arrived at the plush, green Tribe, I knew my luck had taken a turn in the right direction! The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, the rooms were impeccable, the lobby and other "common areas" were trendy and fun. The Nest on... More

I've been to most every hotel in Nairobi, they are all have some issue (mostly cleanliness & service). This is great business hotel (yes the internet works great) and a great safari transition hotel. Don't stay at the Norfolk or some cheap hotel on the outskirts - demand from your tour operator the Tribe.

I recently had an overnight at this lovely hotel between flights from Mombasa to Kigali. When you leave the congested streets of downtiwn Nairobi and walk into this beautiful hotel, it's like an oasis. It is very aesthetically pleasing. The reception desk is customer service oriented and very, very friendly. My check-in was quick and James said it was his... More

If you are working or visiting Gigiri, Nairobi’s “diplomatic district,” and can afford a higher-priced hotel, The Tribe is your best bet. Owned by the same people as the Village Market shopping center next door, and designed by a prominent Nairobi architect, is a stunningly beautiful – with African-modern décor and fittings from around the world (including high quality from...

We spent 3 nights here at the beginning of our honeymoon. This is a truly excellent hotel. The member of staff who showed us to our room even checked that the TV was working and when the remote needed fixing they swiftly went to get a new one/fix it and returned within minutes. The little touches made this hotel very... More
