The Tribe is a design hotel and so it does not have that impersonal,institutional vibe of large high end but chain hotels. It is modern and elegant and yet not too big so you feel at home right away. There is a niche for everyone, literally. The staff are extraordinarily friendly and eager to please. The food is good and the kitchen will go out of its way to accommodate your wishes; something that is good if you are a long term stay. I have stayed short term, long term, on business, and on personal travel. The Tribe is a place you keep coming back to and where everyone really does "know your name" and welcomes you back like part of the family. The place is not perfect and that is part of its charm too; it is almost perfect. Ideally it will grow and expand to the empty fields beyond and have a quiet area, a lap pool, a bigger gym, a menu that changes more often, faster service when you're in a hurry....but this would be good only if it retains its current service and charm and feeling of "home". Located next to the Village Market makes it a convenient little oasis in wonderful Nairobi. They also take security seriously. oh and regardless of your time there, don't miss out on the spa which has some real professional therapists..
