Having had some very negative experiences in Nairobi hotels over the years, I was not expecting much at this hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a posh and cutting edge hotel as the Tribe. Granted, the price is not cheap but this is the price you generally pay for quality in an African hotel. Very modern and tasteful furnishings and details. Beds are super comfortable and the rooms are well appointed. Thoughtful touches such as Bodum french press coffee maker and bath salts for the free standing tub (which is almost in the center of the room) as well as free bottled water throughout my weeklong stay. Wifi was very so-so, so I had to ask the IT staff to bring me an external router (which didn't resolve the problem). The temperature of the shower water fluctuated constantly but I didn't bother complaining. Attentive reception staff. I agree that the breakfast buffet was not exceptional but it was more than adequate. The best part of the stay was an invitation from the manager to attend Thursday evening happy hour at the Nest outdoor bar on the top floor. Excellent free grilled meat, drinks, and quite an animated crowd. The proximity to the Village Market shopping centre is very convenient, although the hotel is far away from town centre and airport (but then again there is no good place to stay considering Nairobi's infamous traffic jams). By the way, if you are interested in the spa, you should book in advance of your trip, because I was unable to get an appointment at all during the week.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor are the quietest.

I have visited this hotel at least 7 times. Decor & ambiance is good. Rooms & bathrooms are rather small. The food is overpriced and not value for money. The food, especially pastry & breads on buffet are unremarkable as another reviewer has written. Food on Sunday buffet seems & taste like leftovers from the week, especially desserts. All pastry & bread needs improvement. Reception staff not friendly, rather arrogant incl security at entrance. Service is below par. We had a Tango night & it started raining. Mngt & staff made no effort to mop up the wet dancing floor and to move us in to a drier area. On another day, I went to meet a friend staying in the hotel. We met in the off lobby bar and the 2 staff there said they had closed at 10pm, so no service. My pal insisted on a drink but they were adamant. Finally, we had to order from room service. I suggest they focus training on customer service & review prices downward. Having high prices only does not make one the best, great service & value does...!

The Tribe is a top notch oasis in a nice part of Nairobi.

We only stayed there one night and then had a room for a day before our 11 pm flight home with a nine day stay out in the Masaai Mara in between.

We had a room on the first floor and it was very quiet at night. Comfortable beds and fairly spacious room. Bottled water supplied, everything worked fine. Wifi strong.

We had dinner twice at the hotel restaurant and also the buffet breakfast and service and food were both excellent. Prices very fair.

Check-in desk friendly and efficient. Highly recommend this hotel for people passing through Nairobi or for longer stays.

This was a fine place to stop for a night before and after our Kenyan safaris.

Comfortable beds, unremarkable restaurant , decent gym, some bathrooms had a septic smell.

Located next to a shopping mall which turned out to be convenient if you forgot something or needed to replenish items.

We didn't have a chance to visit places in Nairobi but given the caution warnings from the US Embassy, we didn't mind.

This was a great stay. The service, food and amenities were too notch. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxing and they responded to our every request. The gym had an attendant ready to help and kept the equipment in top shape. I can't wait to stay here again. The shopping market across the way had great restaurants and some great shops too. An overall outstanding experience.
