Stayed 1 night in deluxe room- had only the night after Gorilla tracking before flying down to Masai Mara for safari, and as we got in quite late just went straight to the excellent rooftop bar rather than trying dinner (so cannot comment re other peoples' issues re food quality at restaurant. Breakfast good quality as to be expected in... More

We’ve always stayed in the Serena Hotel after our safaris’ but this year, on our 4th visit to Nairobi, we decided to try the Tribe Hotel for a couple of nights. The Hotel itself is modern, contemporary, smart and very nice. We were in a deluxe room which included a very comfortable bed, great shower, plenty of towels and complimentary... More

I stayed here because it was the closest luxury hotel to my conference at the United Nations compound. The facilities are wonderful and the Tribe hotel is connected to the Village Market. The Village Market is an indoor/outdoor shopping mall that not only has many shops, but also has bank ATMs and a very good grocery store. I went to... More

I stay in Tribe during may and i enjoy it there. Rooms are not so big, but very comfortable and clean. Just in between bedroom and bathroom there is nothing and you can see and also hear all from shower and toilet. It is a nice design, but i prefer a little more privacy when i am at toilet. Food...

I have recently spent 8 nights at the Tribe hotel, and have enjoyed every minute here. The staff are fantastic, I threw a bunch of curveballs at them, and it was all handled perfectly. The gym is great, with a trainer on site during the day, the food is great in the restaurant. A couple highlights: 1. The rooms are... More

Stayed here in July this year before heading to Safari. Lobby, common area, and restaurants: They look clean. Design is modern and stylish, though I think it lacks characteristics. It looks just like another design hotel in any big cities. You don't even know that you are in Nairobi once you step in the hotel. I like the Moorish style... More

I stayed at this place while in Nairobi on business. It is everything you would imagine a boutique hotel to be! The lobby is decked out in modern furnishings with tech music playing. The bar has some great cocktails. The pool looks fabulous (though it was too cold while I was there to use it) and the hotel also has... More

We were recommended Tribe as being a new hotel and in a good location. The hotel is relatively new and from what I saw of Nairobi, this looked like one of the best hotels there. It has the mod cons of a modern hotel with nice rooms, bathrooms etc and pretty decent facilities (when you find them). Standard breakfast is... More

I have stayed in some amazing hotels all over the world, but Tribe is truly one of the very best. The architecture is stunning, the decor is beautiful. Walking around the hotel I kept finding new beautiful details. The hotel is modern, but with a tribal African motif. The rooms are large, beautiful and comfortable. The hotel services are wonderful,... More

In the suburb Muthaiga is the design hotel "Tribe". The hotel has a trendy and hip design, just like you can find it in Miami or New York, but its still Africa. The colors, the decors and the feeling to it is definitely Africa and even more specific Nairobi, Kenya. When you sit in the garden zipping on your drink,... More
