We've stayed in the Tribe 17-20/82011.
A couple + 8 yo child, for business . A short trip to Nairobi. In our former visits to the city we use hotels in Karen area- the Giraffe Manor and House of Waine. Since this time we needed to be closer to the Westland area we chose the Tribe.
We the deluxe rooms were fully booked so we coukdn't reseve 2 connected rooms and we stayed in the Business Loft suite. It is a very nice suite with 2 lavels and we used the upper one as a sleeping space for our son.
The first night brought some technical issues such as TV problems, Coffee machine problem and long time of getting our room service order.
The TV could not be fixed till the morning but we were too tired anyway .
The breakfast was rich & testy. the dinning room staff is smiling all the time and ready to provide any request. The General Manager came to apologize about last nights problem and upon our request changed our room to 2 interconnecting rooms which were superb. Great rooms with a beautiful swimming pool view.
The General Manager helped us with some information we were looking for in connection with purpose of our visit to Nairobi. The concierge was so very helpfulordering car each day. She was very sufficent and friendly.
the gym was nice with cardio machine and basic strengh machine and dumbles.,
I would add a bence for chest press.
The hotel is one of the most testy decoreted I've ever seen. with lots of African art, amazing sculptures and fabulous fernitures.
The most important for me beside it's cleaniness and beauty is the hospitality and the friendly face you see everywhere all the time. The reception, the restaurant, the shop, the gym , the maids and the doorman- everyone smiles and ready to assist.
One comment regarding the taxi cabs- If you have to be somewhere take additional 15 minutes for the taxi to arrive, even if you ordered in advance. they are waiting in the parking in Village Market and they will only drive to the front door when the doorman inform them that you are present there.
very satisfied staing in the Tribe and we will defenately come back.
