    Wonderful Stay
    This feels like a luxe business hotel; very well decorated, amazing food, good rooms. The spa was also excellent!

    Exceptional 10,0
    The hotel was operated by exceptionally friendly staff who were more than accommodating in every question and concern I posed. The hotel was clean and also provided a delicious breakfast and coffee service every day. Overall I had a fabulous experience and would stay again.

    Couples trip and bday
    I stayed here after staying at best western in the city. Tribe was a getaway from the city and safari life and a good reload luxury time right before going back home. The service was superb, beyond my expectations and food was delicious! I am telling everyone to go here and most definitely get a spa treatment. The only thing I would say is don’t use their shuttle service. We were charged 80usd to go to the mall which is an uber ride of 5-8 usd
    Krista, us1 night trip
    Very good 8,0
    It is very safe to stay in Tribe. At times there are miscommunications between departments but the staff there are always trying to help and resolve the issues.

    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

    Fair 4,0
    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.
    Peter, ie3 night business trip
    Poor 2,0
    Not happy
    Definitely not 5 star - I feel cheated AC not working lots of amenities not working blocked sink 4 changes of room in 2 days not settled wasted days just sitting around waiting for them to sort out either new room or fix problems- slept at 4.00am 2nd night due to mosquitoes & non working AC. Asked for partial refund - offered 1 hour massage - asked for a 2.5 hour pamper me massage. They are struggling to give me this -$120 - but no struggle to accept $300 per night. Check in was great & staff is nice but no authority to pamper me or meet me half can check their complaints log..& my email & texts recording contemporaneous events. Food is good & cocktails are nice but this has given my stay in Nairobi a very sour taste & upset me. I don’t feel I am being treated as a valuable person by management who don’t seem to understand that hanging around all day for them to address a problem is stressful for me & makes me feel like my time is not respected.
