Overview Reviews
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 unrivalled 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. Architect Mehraz Ehsani continues this balance by using authentic Kenyan materials in the public spaces. 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.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. When there were problems, the staff found a solution. The room I had was quiet and very well laid out.
Cons: Water was brown and intermittently didn't come on (hot).
8.2 Excellent
Pros: The room and garden are lovely. Wi-Fi access is free. Desk staff are helpful. Sunday buffet brunch is very popular. The hotel is near a shopping mall with a variety of restaurants, a supermarket, and many modern shops, and you can walk safely to it.
Cons: Service in the restaurant could be much better. Each day at the buffet breakfast it was very difficult to get coffee. I requested it as I entered and sometimes two more times before I got the first cup. To get a second cup of coffee, I had to get up and find a waiter. Most hotels of similar level have waiters who walk around with tea and coffee. At dinner, an ordered glass of wine is not served right away but some time after the food has been served, and after another reminder. There is little evidence that a supervisor is watching over the service or over the restocking of buffet items, until the guests request a bowl, plate or other item.

4.5 Okay
Pros: restaurants in the hotel
Cons: The service at this hotel is absolutely haphazard. Some evenings they do the turndown some evenings they don't, the same for water, tea, minibar, etc. It seems the staff there have no protocols for service delivery and they do things out of memory, and then forget to do things... it was really unpleasant.

9.4 Excellent
Pros: Everything is lovely with the Hilton Nairobi, especially the staff.
Cons: Only one thing bad: the room telephones are badly in need of upgrade. They appear to be from the 1970s.
6.5 Good
Pros: Staff were friendly. Location was solid, although Nairobi CBD traffic can be brutal.
Cons: Room was small, bland, and surprisingly run down. Rust through the shower (which was missing its shower head - water dribbled out of the pipe). Sink & toilet in only marginally better state. Plaster smeared haphazardly over floor & corners of fixtures/bath. You come to expect shoddy worksmanship living in these parts, but didn't think I'd see it on this scale in a Hilton.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I was coming from a very remote area of Kenya. Everything from the man who picked me up at the airport to the concierge to the lovely room to the man who took me back to the airport was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better stay.
Cons: I wish I had more time there!! Buffet is a little pricey but not a deal breaker
