“Treat Yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Every part of my experience at Tribe was a treat - the decor, comfort, service, food, spa, chocolate (oh, the chocolate!). The staff were very accommodating of special touches, such as accommodating a vegan diet or even following a recipe for a hot toddy to treat my icky cold. They were always at the ready to ensure a pleasant stay.

The spa is exceptional - one of the best I have visited anyway. The Kenyan Gold treatment left my skin smooth as silk and helped me relax after an intense working weekend.

There are plenty of nooks, crannies and enjoyable places to work or relax, whether it be by the pool, on the deck or in one of the lobbies. Tribe is even a perfect locale for a stay-cation.

The mall is across the street, and the Maasai Market visits on Fridays.

Be aware that transport to and from the airport can take an hour or more.

Honestly, I felt as if I were treated as royalty.

Stayed at the Tribe and was supremely satisfied, despite the feeling that all good American travelers find their way to it. It caters to an international crowd, and shouldn't be avoided. Right next to the City Market--teeming with shops and restaurants--it's well-worth finding and staying. I felt comfortable, safe, and supported by a very courteous staff.

I just went to Nairobi for the first time on a work trip and Tribe Hotel made my few days in the city a hugely enjoyable experience. The staff were very friendly and made sure you felt at ease. The hotel has a beautiful modern feel - artistic and uncluttered - making it a great space to catch up on some work or to have a rest. The hotel has a serene atmosphere conducive to work and at the end of the day you can catch up with friends over a drink and some shisha at the Nest bar on the fourth floor. The food from the restaurant is delicious and the ambience around the pool is a relaxing break from the bustle of the city.

The room is spacious and the bed is huge and incredibly comfortable - so comfortable you may not want to leave - and the 24 hour food service to your room and free mini bar means that you don’t have to! The gym is also open 24 hours so Tribe really lets you fix your own schedule.

Also - great slogan: One Planet One Tribe - this hotel makes everyone feel welcome and at home. Can’t wait to go back.

I just spent a few nights at Tribe on a work trip and couldn't have been happier with my stay - the service, the room and the hotel facilities were all on point. Every staff member I dealt with was attentive and friendly, and often went out of their way to be helpful. I just loved the bed, and were it not for my busy schedule, I could have slept in it for days, especially helped by the blackout curtains and good sound proofing.

The poolside seating area is beautiful, and laid out in such a way as to give you quiet privacy if you wanted to work there. I also recommend their rooftop bar, Nest. The sheesha is great and the atmosphere so relaxed and unpretentious.

My only regret is not having time to check out the spa. Several Nairobi residents I met raved about the treatments. Next time. Oh yes, I'm hoping to go back there...!

we were a group of people on business to the hotel. The staff was very attentive . the food was excellent .
The chef, Mr Ken, was very interactive and gave our meal as per our requirements.
We also came across Mr Alex who was equally helpful and helped us with our requirements, be it starters or Wines.
Would surely recommend this place to all friends and colleagues.

The hotel is beautiful and an art lovers paradise. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. It is next door to the Village Market which is a shopping complex where you can get food, watch movies etc. It is not far from town and is accessible by both public and private means.

My experience was beyond amazing. From the time my friend and I walked in to the time we left, the staff was friendly, respectful and very helpful.

- Massage: Those ladies had heavenly hands.
- Tour: Our tour guide Benjamin was very knowledgeable. You could tell he takes pride in showing off his country. He answered all of our questions and went above and beyond to ensure we had an amazing tour.
- Hotel itself is very modern in a safe area (close to UN and embassies). There's also a shopping complex right next to it. You can grab pretty much anything from there.
- FOOD WAS AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. This was the highlight for me. Everything was delicious.

Note: This hotel is quite a drive from the airport.
