Would stay here again in an instant! The village market is safe nd in the compound. I only wish more things were safe to walk to. Near the embassy and the UN. Very clean, contemporary and the staff service exceeded expectations.

My first visit to Nairobi, the Tribe Hotel was delightful. Good location (near US Embassy, UNEP, ICRAF). It bills itself as a "designer" hotel and it lives up to that aspiration. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful (obviously well trained and managed). I had an issue with the AC one night and it was fixed while I ate breakfast... More

The Tribe is a wonderful hotel in a nice area of Nairobi. The hotel is beatifully decorated with a very modern decor keeping some African art. As a lot of reviews say, it has the feeling of a boutique hotel. The swimming pool is very nice and the hotel has many hidden corners to read and enjoy. I stayed in... More

Tribe Hotel is classy but not tacky, of global quality but African nature, with wonderful staff, great food, much light and good small facilities. It's considered a 'boutique hotel' but really is more of a larger scale boutique establishment. That said, one never feels overwhelmed by the crowd or feels like an anonymous number in a giant turnover roulette of... More

I spent a couple weeks in Tribe, and was overall impressed by the place. The rooms are not huge, but comfortable for one or two people. More than that & you would clearly suffer. Bathrooms are integrated into the sleeping area, with a HUGE bathtub you can almost see the television from. Rooms are well appointed, with French press &... More

This is a very nice hotel. It is very stylish and modern, yet very African at the same time. The service was quick and helpful, which cannot be said for much of Africa. It is about and hour from the airport, but in a very quiet area by the US embassy. Rooms are a good size with nice bathrooms and... More

When you enter in Tribe you have the sensation that you are in another country such as Dubaî or New York . an Amazing ethnic mixture of art and a smoothness of quality make the whole of the hotel.

On my first business trip to Africa I stayed for a month in the Tribe Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. This is a boutique hotel, elegantly designed, with a great deal of impressive African Art scattered throughout, including in the rooms themselves. The service is very attentive and responsive. The restaurant is very nice and surprisingly good value. The elegant design,... More

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
