It's a given that if this sort of deco "African chic" appeals to you, then Tribe is very impressive and is bound to blow you away, on the onset it's absolutely gorgeous. However I cannot say the same for mine and my family's stay! We reseved one night's accommodation and in making the reservation, I requested an extra bed for... More

If you are particular about cleanliness and like a modern hotel, this is the hotel for you. The design is African chic and the service was really good. Stayed for one night and if I were to go to Nairobi again I would definately stay at Tribe. Read reviews online prior to travelling. The only concern really was what I... More

I went to Nairobi full of preconceptions about the city, and I was proved completely wrong. I actually loved it, and whilst it will never ever be a holiday highlight of your trip to Kenya (well, given that it is competing against fabulous wildlife and stunning beach destinations, I think that is acceptable !), there is no need to be...

It is the most wonderfully stylish, smart and accommodating hotel, and very well located within Nairobi. The finish of the decor and the quality of service here is above what you get is almost every other hotel in Nairobi. The staff are well-spoken, well trained and very attentive. I felt immediately comfortable and very at home alongside the hotel's chique-ness.... More

We are from the San Francisco Bay Area and needless to say, the journey was long. Our mission was to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, my husband's number one bucket list item, and to go on Safari. Before our mission, we wanted to stay in a place that was updated, comfortable, quiet, safe and that has a nice ambience inside and out... More

I travel about 60-70% of my time for work and all over the globe. This is one of my top places to stay simply for the hospitaltiy. The hotel is modern, great rooms, clean, decent food but what makes this hotel is the people. I've been here 6 times and now they greet me by name and I would say... More

I am a Kenyan girl, living in Washington DC. I was home for the holidays, and since I learned that Tribe was giving residents a promotional offer ($200.00 per night, as opposed to the regular $400.00 per night) I decided to try it. I was traveling with my Danish boyfriend, and I loved it. Although I loved the decor, the... More

My friends and I signed up for a10 days trip to Egypt, but unfortunately it was canceled at the very last minute due to instability in the country. I was very frustrated because I had no idea how I could plan another trip in 2 days. I had always wanted to go to Kenya and I was referred to the... More
