I decided to try Tribe at the Village Market on my last business trip to Nairobi...without a doubt one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had in Kenya.
My colleague and I checked in after midnight - the reception staff were efficient and had an international adaptor sent up to my room within minutes of my request. Feeling a little peckish after the long flight I was pleasantly surprised to find the full restaurant menu available...even at 1am! The sashimi on the bar menu was very fresh and the baby shrimp in pernod was fantastic.
The rooms are modern yet still reflect the attention to detail in the art pieces and amenities. The free wifi is very welcome and the connection speeds are impressive. I also appreciated the large shower space...much more comfortable than standing in a bathtub as I'm taller than the average traveller.
The staff are extremely well trained - very attentive and I had a sense that they are proud to be part of such a professional establishment. We held a 2 day conference at the hotel with local counterparts and the business facilities met our requirements. When I needed documents courriered back to my office I only had to give them the address and they handled the rest.
We also had dinner at a great italian restaurant at the Village Market (I forget the name)...highly recommended. The complex has many shopping options but more importantly, a reliable forex bureau and several banks. We were fortunate enough to catch the weekly friday market before our flight.
I've already booked my next stay at Tribe.
