This hotel is a bit over fussy, it tries to be a bit trendy and designer but is too fiddly. The hotel could do with a good clean from top to bottom as it is looking a little sticky and a bit grubby. Having said that everything works ok and the staff are nice.

It’s a very nice hotel with a relaxed atmosphere. It looks chic, it’s clean and it’s well maintained. We had problems with noise 1 night when the World Cup was on as our room was right next to the bar. Besides that it wasn’t a problem. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent and the staff were super friendly.... More

Great design ideas in the common areas, very stylish and comfortable. Easy access to the local Village Market. Not sure how often it happens but there was a noisy pool party all evening and into the night on the Saturday night of my stay. Other than that it was peaceful and I will be booking the Tribe again for my... More

My husband, who works in South Sudan, and I met up for a four-day reunion in Nairobi. We had lived there for 12 years in another lifetime, before the Tribe Hotel was even built. Tribe is located out of Nairobi's center, within the Village Market complex. Staff are excellent, service superb, and rooms quite good. Having said that, I still... More

This was a great experience. It was convenient to shopping and very quite and secure. I especially enjoyed the pool and the interesting decor in common areas and the rooms. 100% the place to stay for the business traveler.

Spent two weeks at this hotel on business. Staff were friendly and responsive.

Nice hotel with spacious clean rooms. The hotel is strategically located within a walking distance from Village Market. Enjoy the shisha severed a the bar (which I think located at the fourth floor). My only complain is that breakfast was not diverse.

Nice to return to the Tribe again after a couple of years absence, layout is mostly unchanged, though there is now a cafe type area on reception level with a sweet and savoury pastry counter and the bar moved down to be part of the restaurant. Service is hit and miss depending on time of day and staffing, sitting in... More

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
