I stayed for six weeks July/August 2010 during my very first trip to Africa and Nairobi. I must say; I would love to return to the Tribe again someday. Never felt so good in my life, never slept so good and never felt more secure surrounded by an excellent Tribe staff. Everyone was so kind and most friendly. Apprieciated the... More

The Tribe Hotel is not near the centre of town but very near the UN and main embasseys. I "boutique hote" ( I do hate that label) with quirkey design features and interessing touches to the rooms and environment. I has a standard room which was very nice- comfortable bed, sound proof from hotel noise and other rooms, free Wifi... More

Our tour operator booked us in here for an overnight transit stay and we can't understand why? It took two hours to get there due to the traffic. The tour operator must have been aware of that because Nairobi traffic is notorious. After 9 hours travelling another two was ridiculous for an overnight with a very early flight the next... More

Tribe is the perfect blend of local and modern, boutique and authentic, luxury and laid back. The service is outstanding. The food and cocktails are perfection. The decor is drop-dead. Whether you're at the pool, the bar, the gym, or in your room, there is no forgetting you're in Africa, surrounded by the classiest statutes and carvings, a tribal edge... More

This was my first time at Tribe Hotel. The hotel looks fabulous and has all the comforts one needs to feel at home. The porters at the entrance were very friendly and helpful all the time. The outside pool area looks amazing. The room is very cozy and has a very warm feel to it. The bed was extremely comfortable.... More

I stayed at the Tribe Hotel for two weeks in October 2010. I was visiting Kenya for business, and after long work days, the Tribe was a wonderful environment to come back to. The minimalist and trendy decor, warmed up with African art, friendly and always smiling staff, heavenly comfortable rooms/beds, free internet access, good food and a beautiful pool... More

"They make you feel like royalty" my 9 year old daughter summed it up perfectly. This small hotel is located outside the city of Nairobi. The hotel is gated & has security guards. The staff is amazing. The decor is beautiful. The hotel is designed with every comfort in mind. We had a small suite, which included a king bed,... More

I stayed at Tribe for three separate nights in late Sept/early Oct, on my way in and out of the Masi Mara and my experiences were mixed. There is no doubt that this is trying to be an extremely stylish hotel and something different for Nairobi. Having stayed at sister hotel Melrose Arch in Jo'burg I was excited to be... More
