Great stay
Tribe is great and proximity to UN and Village Market can't be beat. Room was very comfortable and spacious but room was a little tired - one or two dings that needed to be repainted etc. Gym is good but small if there is more than one person using the weights.

Not a 5 star hotel!
Tribe Hotel was a disappointment. Rooms and bathrooms need renovation. It is not a 5 star hotel by any means. I won’t stay there again

Great location and quality - but internet reliabil
Great location and quality - but internet reliability and speed is a disaster If you need to work via an internet connection - this hotel is not for you. I often couldn't connect or the speed was so low that even emailing was impossible. When you are in Kenya, you need to rely on whatsapp or facetime audio to speak, that was close to impossible at this hotel.
