Tired from a long flight, I finally arrived at the hotel late night of 15 June with a hotel voucher in hand. With only a few hours to sleep before catching an early morning flight, I was desperate to get to my room, sleep and wake up in good time for breakfast and straight to the airport. Front desk attendants... More

We stayed at Eka for roughly 8 hours. The hotel is very convenient seeing that it is next to the airport . The ladies at the reception were courteous and we got the help we needed. Wifi in the room was good and we got to eat the ribs from the spur which were delicious! Very friendly staff from the... More

I stayed at this hotel during an overnight transit, arrived late from the airport, my company had arranged a hotel transfer from the airport to the hotel, pretty chaotic at the airport, but once my driver had located me, the transit from the airport to the hotel took about 30min. Once at the hotel, I was greeted by an efficient... More

We stayed on two occasions in Jun 2015 with family. It is a nice property located near Nairobi international airport. The hotel is well organised to take care of the tourist traffic, who arrive in the evening and take off for tourism early next day. There is a nice outdoor elevated deck where one can enjoy a drink while overlooking... More

Our travel agent recommended the Eka for our layover on the way to Rwanda. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning good and there was a nice little fridge. Very clean place and super helpful staff--like Oscar the porter who helped us. Make sure to ask for two room keys if there are two of you. Like many hotels in... More

Serious amount of security which is both reassuring and a bit scary. Beautiful lobby and lots of porters to assist. Room was ok. Fan was doing its best but had enough buildup that I was fine that it didn't work for fear of what it would blow at us. Frig was broken. Windows could not be opened. Breakfast was very... More
