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

Stayed at the hotel a couple of days before heading on a safari trip. The airline lost our luggage and the staff at the hotel was more than helpful and concerned for us to find our luggage and make sure it arrived before our trip. The service overall was excellent from clean rooms to quick efficient and friendly check-in and... More

I'm not usually so enthusiastic about a hotel but this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at! The rooms are decorated in a modern African style and the architecture of the building is unique to say the least. It is connected to a western-style shopping mall (The Village Market) and is located within the diplomatic/consular district. There... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to safari in the Masai Mara. We arrived quite late and the trip from the international airport took long - one hour due to bad traffic, for which of course the hotel cannot be blamed, but it is not practical if you have to leave again at 7 am the next...

The hotel is clean and pretty ... that's about it! We got stuck in the sub-basement (floor "0"). It felt like a dungeon. The bathrooms are a nightmare. They had good intentions with the big shower heads but forgot to angle the flooring so the whole bathroom flounded when showering. When we asked for additional towels to block off the... More

During my pre and post safari trip in East Africa, I stayed at the Tribe Hotel in Nairobi, and my experience was exquisite. The tribe staff has exceptional customer service skills, and everyone greeted you with a warm smile. The bar, restaurant, business center and concierge services were stellar.
