Home to the UN’s main post on the continent as well as the U.S., Polish, Norwegian, and Brazilian embassies, the Gigiri district naturally has one of Nairobi’s biggest international populations. Alive with the buzz of diplomats and politicians going about their affairs, Gigiri has attracted an array of relatively upscale restaurants, cafes, bars, entertainment venues, and shopping establishments, such as The Village Market.
Urban, loft-like style blends effortlessly with warm African colors at Nairobi's Tribe Hotel, a pioneering lifestyle property that sets itself apart with atypical angles and an unrivaled appreciation for tribal crafts. Some 900 hand-sculpted artifacts from all over Africa have been gathered here, capturing the diversity of the continent and evoking a sense of splendor that is raising the luxury hotel stakes in the continent. Spread across three wings in the heart of Nairobi's diplomatic district, a soaring sunlit atrium links the Tribe's 137 guest rooms and suites. Inside, cool granite and stretches of dark Indian slate temper earthy combinations of cumin, sandstone, and brown-sugar hues. These include the Kaya Spa, which takes its inspiration from the country's sacred forests; the well-stocked library; the rooftop bar; and the heated pool, surrounded by waterfalls and gardens.
Tribe’s 137 rooms and suites are as diverse as the artwork they contain, but they all include the dark wooden floors, the sultry spice-colored décor, and the bright-white bathtubs. Granite, slate, and marble help to temper the warm African tones, and right angles are almost nonexistent. Added luxury comes from the 300-thread-count sheets and Eartherapy amenities, distributed generously in every room.

tribe has the potential to be a great hotel.. The staff were most welcoming and the restaurants and food were terrific. After arriving early morning from the US, we were looking forward to having a down day after traveling for two days. We headed down to the pool. We never used the pool as it was extremely cold. The hot tub was cold too. The pool is advertised as heated but the staff said the pool is never heated. Even the hotel book located in the front lobby mentions the pool being heated? Our room was poorly located and we had to keep out blinds shut as we were located on a pathway by the conference center. The hotel was not at full occupancy yet we felt we were placed in a poorly located room as we were 3rd Home exchange members, not regular guests. This has not been the case with hotel exchanges in the past. The rooms need updating and some attention to detail. Lightbulbs out. Small maintenance issues etc. We typically stair at the Fairview in Nairobi but wanted to try a different property. Overall Tribe is a nice property but definitely not 4-5 star. ”
