It is not far from the airport but expensive. The rooms are cozy, the only problem there are not soundproof so anytime someone opens his rooms door the noise is yours. the food is good especially the grilled meat. Internet is perfect.

Great hotel close to the airport with great rooms. Secure building and hotel grounds, nice breakfast however most hot foods had to be ordered with was a bit annoying. Staff where friendly after a long flight and check in was fuss free.

If you want a hotel in town, five minutes from the airport, you can't go wrong with EKA. Business people from all areas stay here, but it's a good choice for a wonderfully modern hotel, offering great meals, entertainment, with plenty of amenities to keep you busy. Centrally located from many of the attractions in Nairobi, it's a good overnight... More

I spend several nights a year at the Eka Hotel in Nairobi. First prize is the location on Mombassa road - very convenient from the airport and a quick drive considering Nairobi traffic. Rooms are large enough and several English channels on TV. They have no smoking rooms, but 304 -308 are rooms with balconies where you can smoke. Beds... More

Stayed at the Eka for 6 nights and found it to be perfect for my business needs. It was very clean, had a great support team including the guys in the hotel transport section. The breakfast had really good choice, the room was very well appointed and was really clean. Could not find a fault at all. I would highly... More

My experience at this property was very pleasant. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. There is a choice between feather or foam pillows. Wireless internet is free and available in the rooms as well as the lobby. It is close to Jomo Kenyatta airport. Rooms facing Mombassa Road are noisy but the rooms facing the pool are very... More

We were to stay overnight at Eka hotel on our way in from Kigali and before leaving for our safari to Masai Mara the following day. We arrived at about 9 pm. Our room was not ready. I don't really understand how the room is unprepared at that hour of the day. The lady at the reception was grumpy and... More

If you are seeking a modern, comfortable place that is out of the core because of safety concerns, it is unlikely you can do better. It is gated, with guards, and anyone entering is checked. The rooms are very up-to-date and comfortable and apparently well-insulated. Although situated along a busy street, noise was not an issue in the slightest. Staff... More

Clean and functional. Safe. Food is acceptable, but not great. Good breakfast. Internet acceptable, but can be slow. Lounge recreational areas are very limited. Good for business traveller doing business in that area and for transit passengers as proximity to airport is good.

Hotel was in a very secure area and rooms in the hotel were also very secure. Rooms were very new and very comfortable. Noise was not an issue for sleeping and relaxing. We chose poorly for our evening meal when we visited a cafe style restaurant that was part of the complex. The food was fast food, it was noisy... More
