..as there is a structural fault in the building. Sound proofing is good with respect to the external parts, but non existent with respect to doors! The doors themselves are pretty heavy and you hear them slamming continuously as if it was your own door which keeps slamming. Moreover, you hear everything people say. As a number of visitors come... More

This is a relatively new hotel that is fairly close to the airport on the south side of the city. The design is modern and comfortable. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The meals were all pretty good. Conference facilities were comfortable and reasonably priced, compared to other venues we looked at. Internet was free and fairly good. The hotel... More

If you are a business trip look elsewhere Walls are paper think Room doors are so poorly fitted that you can hear everything not to mention they bang loudly Oh and if some locals start fighting in the hallway at 5 am don't call management they won't do anything about it- even after 3 calls.

Good hotel for those who land in Nairobi and then start their safari. We were here with our Group of 19 members, and all the group members had a pleasant stay. Hotel has good ambiance, food, rooms. We had a stay for only one night at this hotel and then to Masai Mara National Park.

This hotel would have scored higher but the lack of sound proofing and black out curtains from the bedrooms is an issue. Hotel staff are fantastic, food from the breakfast buffet was good, dinner buffet excellent and really good value. Security is good and there is a great american diner attached to the hotel, If only the rooms walls werent... More

Just stayed a total of 4 nights on 3 different legs of my recent safari at the Eka. The hotel itself is fine -- very close to the airport -- and not having to drive through downtown Nairobi traffic to get to the airport is a very good thing! The rooms I had were quiet and clean, but the mattress... More

It was a good relaxing place in the chaos of Nairobi. Although the staff was a little bit inconsistent when providing information (sent to the bathroom when asking for the front desk, sent to the wrong room elevator, advised breakfast started at 7:00 when in fact it was available at 5:30), the few hours that we spent at Eka were...

We recently stayed at this hotel overnight as we were leaving for a safari the next day. This hotel is located around a 15 minute drive from Jomo Kenyatta airport (assuming no traffic). The room was sufficient with hard wood floors and was clean. The beds were a bit hard but acceptable. The internet connetion was very intermittent which was... More

On a one day trip to Nairobi and was booked into this hotel by a friend - coming into the reception area one immediately sees its classy. A modern amenity with friendly staff. Wi-fi was a much welcomed bonus as was the amount of coffee sachets in the room. What was good is the proximity to the airport.
