The Tribe Hotel is a masterful piece of architecture with lovely nooks and crannies. The staff are wonderfully courteous and smiling. However, for a supposed 5 star hotel, the service is well below par. One shouldn't have to ask for basics such as salt and pepper or sweetners at breakfast. The breakfast service is quite substandard when one considers one has to sit and wait for approximately 10 minutes before one is offered a customary cup of coffee or tea. As one finishes a breakfast course, the plates pile up on the table and are only removed as one leaves the dining area. Arranged transport in their fancy Landrovers failed to materialise leaving me stranded. Of course profuse apologies are forthcoming but that doesn't solve the problem of lack of service. My aircon packed up two nights in a row leaving me in a stuffy, humid and hot room - at 2.00am. One would have thought that their technicians would have sorted this out the first night!
As I said, although apologies were forthcoming, the damage had been done. I will be returning to my usual stay in Nairobi, the Sarova Stanley, where attention to the client is always utmost in their daily practice.
