Stayed for 4 for a leadership summit for which my company booked around 35-40 rooms. Since the event was at the hotel we spent most of the time inside and ate 2-3 meals every day. The layout and outlook of the hotel seem to be designed to give it a semi-resort kind of a feeling and the rooms with open...

Peter was an awesome front end staff. He checked me in quickly and greeted me with kindness. I came into the hotel pretty upset because of a lost luggage issue at the airport and he eased some of my frustration by making a copy of my luggage claim and informed me that he would call first thing in the morning...

We were at the Tribe for 5 nights. This was our second stay there but our upteenth visit.nothing has changed. The decor continues to be inspiring, the service wonderful and the food retains all its flourish and fresh aromas. The owners, who also own and let out the related Village Market, are building another hotel on the other side of...

I received the best customer service I have ever received at the Tribe. The Tribe is in a great location - steps away from Village Market, which makes it very convenient for shopping and easy access to other restaurants outside of the Tribe. The breakfast is great - plenty of options. The restaurant menu has a lot of options as...

Having stayed here before during business visits in 2014 and 2015 I full expected the same kind of experience. Unfortunately the disaster of a water main break resulted in no shower available after an 18 hour day of travel. I had to beg for a bucket of water so I could take a bucket bath prior to the next day's...

Spent two weeks in Nairobi in business at the Tribe Hotel. Great service and location. Event support was very good. Staff was incredibly helpful and professional. Village Market next door was an added plus.

Excellent spa and pool area, and treatments were reasonably priced. The hotel is walking distance to the mall which has good food and nice shops. The restaurant in the hotel was top notch, with pool side seating. Staff was great.

It’s sleek architecture and crisp lines are sure to set forth a brand new experience in hotel accommodation. Drawing inspiration from its African heritage, the interior of the hotel boasts exquisite art, crafts and furnishings handpicked from the farthest corners of the continent. Each of the 137 rooms is carefully designed to whisk you away from the average mundane hotel room into a world of chic and hip design with an emphasis on detail and luxury.

From free high speed internet access, complimentary mini bars, luxury airport transfers, warm welcomes to express check in and check-out facilities, you can be sure that Tribe understands the individual needs of just about any traveler! Adjacent to the hotel is The Village Market, the largest shopping and recreational complex in Eastern Africa, and Nairobi’s premier retail and cultural destination. With over 150 shops and services, set within flowing rivers and waterfalls. It is also home to the weekly Maasai Market which hosts 350 artists for a colorful display of crafts, paintings, beadworks and fabrics every Friday. Bringing a whole new pampering experience to Nairobi is the hotel’s Kaya Spa. Using carefully selected products, Kaya’s uniquely developed treatments are designed to harmonize both the body and mind. The six treatment rooms infuse a sense of tranquility through inspiring design and decor that is sure to contribute to the relaxation and re-invigoration of your entire spa experience. Tribe’s signature restaurant recently launched a brand new menu carefully designed by the Executive Chef and his team. Inspired by the open flame grill, the menu is a tribute to local farmers; paying homage to crisp flavors and fresh, organic ingredients. The Jiko team has also reinvented Tribe’s famous Sunday brunch; the perfectly constructed menu features an extended dessert buffet, unlimited breezy cocktails, amongst an array of other feasts for the entire family. Jiko authentically holds true to the glamour of the hotel while offering guests the delights of whimsy and fantasy through a playful approach to presentation.

Using only the finest ingredients, the pastry shop offers an array of hot and cold treats ranging from custom and novelty cakes, decadent French macaroons, designer cupcakes, homemade chocolates and ice creams to bespoke sandwiches made using daily freshly baked bread. Whether it be for some intimate time alone with a tall mug of chai tea latte and a deliciously delectable pastry or a high tea with friends, Suite 101 is definitely a must try for any sweet tooth! Tribe’s serene, charming and charismatic surroundings undoubtedly place it among the most striking, and luxurious boutique properties on the African continent, guaranteeing to meet and exceed the needs of any guest from jet setting celebrities to time constrained business travelers looking to add an urban flair to their Kenya-getaways! ... more   less
