This hotel is sublime. It has the sense of a boutique hotel, with nice ambient musique throughout the hotel, perfect finishing touches, beautiful decor, great beds and rooms, perfect service, very professional staff. And it starts from the beginning: airport pickup is is very fancy Chryslers (the ones that look like Bentleys). I hate buffets, but oh-my-god, is the food... More

Everyone wants to experience something exotic in life. Tribe Hotel can offer that rare experience-- without sacrificing luxury. Wake up to a vigorous workout at Tribe's petite but comprehensive gym with top-of-the-line equipment and even a boxing area, followed by a full buffet breakfast and a refreshing glass of tree tomato juice (which is unique to Kenya). If you are... More

I have stayed twice at the TRIBE in Nairobi. For both, business and pleasure it is, especially compared to the more traditional hotels, by far (!!!) the most recommendable palce to stay at in Nairobi! Both, the food and the rooms are of five star plus quality and are being topped off with an impeccable service. The TRIBE can compete... More

My wife and I went to tribe on our way to discover the beautiful land of Kenya. Needless to say I was more than apprehensive of the local accommodations but I had heard that Tribe was the place to go. What a shock ! This hotel puts the Parisian boutique hotels to shame ! From the impeccable service to the... More

The hotel is beautifully decorated according to local habits, rooms are clean and in a professional African style decorated and build. Perfect gym facilities with a good professional trainer if needed. Breakfast, all you can imagine of a 5 star Hotel, friendly amd well spoken waiters and servants. Except for a few electricity problems, an overall problem currently in Nairobi,... More

Tribe is superb. It is stylish and comfortable and filled with friendly staff who will welcome you on a return visit. While I slightly prefer the laid-back setting of Fairview, Tribe is a great place in all respects and benefits from being located right next to village market. This is especially convenient when I am there for work and my... More

We stayed three nights at Tribe on our trip to Kenya before taking a flight to Masai Mara. It is in a great safe location and we had great relaxing family time playing mini golf and bowling. Water Park was not appealing as weather was too cool for water parks. Food was great too and staff very polite.
