Having had some very negative experiences in Nairobi hotels over the years, I was not expecting much at this hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a posh and cutting edge hotel as the Tribe. Granted, the price is not cheap but this is the price you generally pay for quality in an African hotel. Very modern and tasteful furnishings and details. Beds are super comfortable and the rooms are well appointed. Thoughtful touches such as Bodum french press coffee maker and bath salts for the free standing tub (which is almost in the center of the room) as well as free bottled water throughout my weeklong stay. Wifi was very so-so, so I had to ask the IT staff to bring me an external router (which didn't resolve the problem). The temperature of the shower water fluctuated constantly but I didn't bother complaining. Attentive reception staff. I agree that the breakfast buffet was not exceptional but it was more than adequate. The best part of the stay was an invitation from the manager to attend Thursday evening happy hour at the Nest outdoor bar on the top floor. Excellent free grilled meat, drinks, and quite an animated crowd. The proximity to the Village Market shopping centre is very convenient, although the hotel is far away from town centre and airport (but then again there is no good place to stay considering Nairobi's infamous traffic jams). By the way, if you are interested in the spa, you should book in advance of your trip, because I was unable to get an appointment at all during the week.
