You have a sprawling mall next to u with upmarket restaurants and the diplomatic enclave along with UNEP regional HQ next door. Located little distant from the airport but what a nice feeling when u get there. Rooms too are top class. I am from Kenya but many a times suffering from short regional trips like to stay over night... More

An ideally located hotel in Nairobi - out of the bustle of the city, but easy enough to access. Great food, good service, friendly staff. The design takes some getting used to - its not your typical East Africa hotel. And that is what is so neat about it. This was my third visit. And I plan to stay again... More

This is a beautiful ultra-modern hotel. Great thought went into all details and designs. Its very close to the Village Market; which is a shopping mall with a food court. Friendly staff. Also, it a great place to hang out and enjoy a cocktail.

We only stayed here one night, but managed to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. Tribe is a beautiful hotel and quite conveniently located to the Village Market, just a few steps away. The staff was friendly and very helpful, our room quite spacious for our party of 4. We enjoyed our delicious lunch poolside and then our kids enjoyed a... More

The Tribe is very beautiful with comfortable rooms, a beautiful pool, wonderful food and great service. There is a lovely gym and a beautiful fourth floor bar. Additionally, the hotel is next to an upscale mall where it is easy to shop and there is a pleasant restaurant. The only negative is that the hotel is outside the city if... More

I was impressed with everything from the service to the striking decor (a combination of modern design and African art). The pool area was probably my favorite part and I spent a lot of time sitting on the islands in the fountain. The shower was also notable: it had a large rainfall style head and was very spacious. I was... More

This hotel is superb. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the hotel is clean and well kept with a spectacular pool. The gym is very well kept with all the equipment you could possibly need. Dinner in the restaurant was of a standard I would expect in a hotel of this type anywhere in the world. Travelling in Africa can be... More
