This is an airport hotel close to both Wilson and Jomo Kenyatta airports in which to overnight before or after a safari. Friendly, courteous staff. Adequate rooms and a steakhouse which serves reasonable food. A buffet lunch and breakfast is also offered. Ask for a garden room as the hotel is on a major road.

Eka is a comfortable clean hotel with modern facilities. What sets it apart is its staff. They were helpful, courteous and seemed to really care about the guests. Especially appreciated was the ability to have a hot shower in the fitness centre prior to flying out. Great choice and very convenient

We stayed 2 nights prior to our safari. The first night was to recover from the long flight and the second night was to energize before the safari began. Eka was great. The room was very clean and comfortable, staff was quite friendly, and the food was good. We had dinner 2 nights and breakfast one morning. Good options, good... More

Good hotel near the airport, if you need to catch a flight next morning or heading for safari afterwards. Staff is helpful, breakfast had plenty of options. Our room was spacious and clean, the only thing we found quite weird was the toilet/shower with glass doors practically in the room.

Staff: warm, friendly and attentive Room: well-appointed, with linen and beds extremely comfortable. The ensuite is ultra-modern (definitely designed with rest and long showers in mind) water warms up pretty quick which I enjoy. Food: there's quite a lot of variety, with two restaurants (one aimed at fine dining, the other catering for a ranch-like experience) ...there is no need... More

Great hotel near JKIA International Airport - perfect if you arrive late in the evening or as a dayroom before your departure flight. Avoid the Nairobi traffic! Rooms are contemporary with free wifi. Great service

My travel agent booked me into this hotel for the night prior to my departing flight from Nairobi airport. It was very convenient to the airport. The room was beautifully appointed and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The hotel, in general, was wonderfully clean and modern and I had nothing to criticize. The restaurant had good food, though I thought... More

My husband and I stayed here one night when we needed to be close to the airport for an early morning flight. The hotel is within 2 km of Nairobi's international airport and only a few more km from Wilson airport where the domestic safari flights can be taken. We found the staff helpful, the premises quite new and clean,... More

I have stayed at the Hotel on numerous occasions. It was good value for money at the time. I have not been there recently. The staff was very friendly. And the security excellent. They have a Spur Restaurant for lunch and dinners.

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
