The food was lovely but a bit expensive for what it was. Nice place to stop to adjust to western living. Nice location not too far from the airport with outdoor seating and pool whilst waiting for evening flight. The staff were very helpful labelling and locking luggage away until we needed it.

We had a 12 hour layover in Nairobi on our way to Madagascar. This hotel is 10 minutes from the airport. It is super nice. Has a great restaurant and transport to and from the property. Highly recommend this property.

This is now about the 30th time i have stayed at EKA, and will certainly not even consider staying anywhere else. The rate is excellent and the service is wonderful. The hotel is neat and clean and you really can't want for more.

I've stayed at the EKA on more than one occasion. I needed a location close to JKIA and Wilson airports. Eka is perfect. Service is 5*. Rooms are tidy, clean and well equipped. Only criticism is the (lack of) cupboard space. Pool facing rooms are quiet. 344 is on the corner and my favorite. Food is good and so is... More

We've stayed at the Eka on several occasions, and enjoyed it each time. The rooms are pleasant, and staff was friendly and helpful. The food is quite good, whether the buffet or ordering off the menu. The pool area is lovely, and the exercise facility is adequate.

Many hotels in Africa are springing up to accommodate the many new travellers in this region. This hotel is one of them and would appear to have been recently built. The rooms are quite modern and very comfortable and clean. Staff are trying hard to meet westerners standards and are very helpful. Breakfast was the only food we ate at... More

This place will charge you more and rip you off of you are a US citizen. They quoted one rate, added 2000 to it and then added another 600 without even telling me. It took over an hour to check in. The manager Ester was approving the entire rip off scheme and I had no choice. AVOID THIS PLACE!

The location of the hotel is excellent if you have a layover in NBO for a night, but probably far from ideal if you are in NBO for an extended period of time. The hotel is clean, restaurants and service are both good, but neither will blow you away, but you don't really expect that for an airport hotel. Mattresses... More

Glad to be back to this hotel, last time I was here the reception and some staff commitment to guest was so bad, behaving as if they are doing you a favour when you request some assistance. Am glad to see a great change. The close location of this hotel to the Airport is an added advantage especially with Nairobi... More
