The Tribe is a very convenient, if expensive, hotel for those of us who attend meetings of the UN Environment Programme.
The staff are helpful and friendly, the food is good and the pool area is lovely. The indoor decor is interesting even if it is dominated by West African artifacts and owes little to Kenya's growing art scene.
However, this hotel is aimed at business travellers spending a few nights. It is much too far from the airports for those overnighting before heading off on safari. Thus the fact that the wifi is unreliable and the lights in the rooms dim in the extreme are real irritants. Even in the public areas the lights are inadequate. The lighting mood is suitable for the romantic couples I have never seen in several years of visiting. For those of us trying to negotiate with people from around the world it would be nice to be able to see faces clearly. Given the room rate there is no excuse for not having some areas that meet our needs - other than the area by the toilets just outside the dining room!
