My wife and I recently celebrated our 2nd anniversary at tribe hotel. We got to the Hotel earlier than expected so we sat at the beautiful lounge and had a few drinks to pass time. As soon as Lillian (Staff member who had confirmed our reservation) found out that we were around, she came and greeted us - asked if... More

A big surprise for Africa, was the Tribe Hotel near downtown Nairobi Kenya. Beautifully appointed rooms and suites, first class service, free full breakfast, free mini-bar in room, lovely grounds, free wifi. I'll be here for two weeks on business.

Stunning design, fantastic roof deck bar, great gym & pool , beautiful art everywhere you look, helpful and caring staff and a modern stylish exquisitely comfortable room. Prices are high but well worth it. A true oasis in the chaos of Nairobi.

Many advantages and some disadvantages. I stayed a month... -Staff is hard working and customer focused. -Security is present, but it can never be good enough -Ideal for those with business at the UN or nearby embassies. Travel time is minutes and walking takes ten minutes max. Proximity to UN avoids Nairobi's dreaded rush hour traffic jams made worse when... More

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.

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
