My wife and I went to tribe on our way to discover the beautiful land of Kenya. Needless to say I was more than apprehensive of the local accommodations but I had heard that Tribe was the place to go. What a shock ! This hotel puts the Parisian boutique hotels to shame ! From the impeccable service to the... More

The hotel is beautifully decorated according to local habits, rooms are clean and in a professional African style decorated and build. Perfect gym facilities with a good professional trainer if needed. Breakfast, all you can imagine of a 5 star Hotel, friendly amd well spoken waiters and servants. Except for a few electricity problems, an overall problem currently in Nairobi,... More

great, beautiful hotel - very cool vibe but super expensive and they are kinda coasting on their cool rep lots of little maintanence issues in my room but, the management was quick to make most of them right very quickly bottom line, for that price, stuff should be darn near perfect if it's not, then complain soon -- and they...

Tribe is superb. It is stylish and comfortable and filled with friendly staff who will welcome you on a return visit. While I slightly prefer the laid-back setting of Fairview, Tribe is a great place in all respects and benefits from being located right next to village market. This is especially convenient when I am there for work and my... More

We stayed three nights at Tribe on our trip to Kenya before taking a flight to Masai Mara. It is in a great safe location and we had great relaxing family time playing mini golf and bowling. Water Park was not appealing as weather was too cool for water parks. Food was great too and staff very polite.

On the one side it is very hip boutique. Kinda like the African version of SOME Kimptons in America. The room is real small, but very cool. One or two nights is fine, but I stayed 5 days and all I wanted is desk space and less chic-africa. The front desk at check in guy was good the girl looked... More

We were expecting BIG things from the Tribe- it's called the best hotel in all of Nairobi and I feel like it could have been much much better. It was not lacking anywhere in the service department, but the rooms felt a bit strange and I never really got comfortable. It would be ideal as a business hotel, but after... More

This is the third and final hotel i have stayed at in Nairobi because i dont need to keep looking for a better place to stay. The airport transfer was flawless, the room was awesome, and the free wifi worked great. I was impressed by the quality and style of the room and am looking forward to staying here again.

I stayed at the Tribe hotel for 6 nights. Tribe reminds me of a contemporary boutique hotel that one would find in New York City, but with an African flare. From the contemporary, African art draped lobby to the comfortable and sleek rooms, Tribe delivers an overall exceptional experience. The room is full of amenities that would make a stay... More
