Nairobi, Kenya

The food is very good and service is excellent. We have been to the Tribe hotel several times and have never been disappointed. There is a variety of good food to choose from and the service has always been good. The Nest restuarant on 4th floor is very cosy and good hang out joint (apart from when it rains) however...

Sunday brunch was up to standard hotel quality and service. The kitchen staff kept quantities always plentiful, the ambiance was soothing though the live music could have been a notch lower... All in all, it was a pleasant experience though I would recommend that the barbecued prawns be cooked as and when requested, not prior since they tend to dry...

This hotel wifi is not working. No one knows how to fix it. Great if you want to be totally disconnected. The worst value for money i ever experienced in Kenya. I do not recommend this hotel and will stay elsewhere during my next visits.

I enjoyed my stay here for work last month. It's very trendy, not typical Kenyan decor. The food is very good that I ate in the lobby area, which came from their main restaurant, but a bit pricey for Nairobi. I didnt get to enjoy the beautiful pool area that is an escape from the bustling city. The location was...

Overall it was nice and interesting. It is a nice place because there is a shopping centre nearby. One thing the discomfort me was the distance from our office and to reach on time for meeting is a bit difficult and more aggravated due to traffic jam in the city.

Well located, very nice modern layout with excellent facilities. Great service and very clean. I have stayed there twice and have been very pleased. Really no complaints other than perhaps check-in and check out could be little faster.

Our members were pleased with venue, food and service at the Jiko restaurant. The hotel provided a cocktail venue and meeting room. We say kudos to the team that took care for us and Makena, thank you so much for handling all the preparation. Looking forward to coming back another day.

No remote in the room had to call to have a remote delivered to the room. No iron and ironing board in the room. The air conditioner would not remain on overnight which made the room very hot in the evening

Dear K3661MJchristopherh, many thanks for sharing your experience. Please accept our apologies for the missing remote control which happened due to a last minute change from the initially allocated room for you.

The property is lovely with lots of nooks and places to sit and work, talk or drink. The staff was amazing, always doing a great job and extremely pleasant. Overall, it's a lovely hotel although a bit too dark for my taste. I had to ask for a lamp in my room to allow me to work. They gave me...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set apart from the crowded city centre and a modern contrast to a city of colonially-inspired getaways, Tribe Hotel located in the lush suburbs of the city echoes nothing but the ultimate in luxury and tranquility. 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. An ideal destination for those craving increased intimacy and comfort with an added dose of personal service. 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. Located on the lobby level of the hotel, Suite 101, the new pastry offering at Tribe, is a place where you can come at anytime of the day. 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
