I stayed at the Tribe hotel for 6 nights. Tribe reminds me of a contemporary boutique hotel that one would find in New York City, but with an African flare. From the contemporary, African art draped lobby to the comfortable and sleek rooms, Tribe delivers an overall exceptional experience.
The room is full of amenities that would make a stay top quality, including a comfortable bed, large bathroom, rain shower, flat screen TV, Wi Fi, bottles of water, coffee/tea.
The staff are friendly and attentive, service is professional.
We went to Nest, the intimate outdoor rooftop lounge at the hotel. The bartenders have an arsenal of refreshing cocktails at their disposal. My absolute favourite is the passion fruit mojito!
The food at the hotel restaurant was delicious! Our only complain was it took a long time for the food to arrive at our table. The restaurant staff was very attentive and apologetic though.
One night I was alone for dinner, so I walked to Village Market by myself and I felt completely safe. Village Market is filled with little boutique stores, a supermarket, restaurants, a food court (with international food options.) We especially loved two stores, Kalabash and Kitengela (both stores have unique, good quality pieces that you won't find at other stores, or see over and over again at any Masai Market.)
I highly recommend this hotel for its great location, attentive service, comfortable rooms, and a long list of amenities. I am planning to return to Nairobi next year with some family and friends, we will definitely be staying at Tribe!
