“Incredible Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Visited for business. Beautiful hotel. The staff were awsome. Room was small but really well appointed. The location is great as the Village Market has some great shopping and food. Felt very secure. Highly recommended!

For the price, I expected much better. I booked a Loft Business suite, only to discover on check-in that the suite was all on one floor with much less separation of work and sleep areas than shown on the website.

The service was variable. Food in the restaurant was not what I expect at a 5 star hotel. My colleague tried to get a substitution at the restaurant to accommodate a food allergy but there was so much miscommunication, she ended up with a very disappointing meal.

The hotel is beautifully designed and decorated but not worth the price they are charging.

Simply happy with the customer care. Especially with the porters and drivers. Very helpful and genuinely friendly. Architecture is wonderful. A bit of disappointment in the eating area. But generally it was welcoming and wonderful

I stayed at the Tribe Hotel on a business trip in April 13 end. It's a nice hotel in an upmarket locality of Nairobi. The hotel is nicely designed and the service is good. The rooms are a bit small though. The stay of 3 days was nice and delightful. The business conference in the hotel was well organized. A memorable stay.

We have stayed at this hotel multiple times for business as it is in a safe area and conveniently located next to Village Market. The staff are exceptional, rooms are immaculate, and the place is always buzzing with interesting people and cool events. The only downside, which I have experienced on every visit is that the rooms are not well insulated from noise so every time someone near your room closes their door it is startling and in the back of the hotel you can hear the traffic. I am a very heavy sleeper and it still disturbs me. The spa is really nice! I recommend Lucyanno for a the perfect mani pedi.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the lobby and away from the gym.

I stayed at the Tribe Hotel in Nairobi. The rooms are clean and very attractive, the staff is nice and the restaurant is very good. The security is excellent, and as I was traveling for business, it was the hotel that was recommended by the US Embassy. Would definitely stay there again.
