I have stayed at the Eka twice now, most recently this past December. They are the friendliest staff I've experienced in Kenya, bar none! The porters and the front desk staff all remembered me on my second visit through. Arnold at the hotel lounge/bar is a great person to talk to when you're just sitting and relaxing. In fact, I...

Your quality service started from the gate, the doorman/ Bell boy are courteous, the receptionists are helpful, the waiters are friendly. They all make you feel valuable... I was really impressed. Your breakfast is out of this world. I will come back for lunch and dinner.

I think this is one of the best hotels near the airport. The staff is very friendly and it has a great atmosphere. I will caution that it is expensive by comparison, but most are expensive in Nairobi. It is very clean and has everything you need.

Perfect place to start your travel in Nairobi. Nice rooms, good food, and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Easy to get to and from the airport from this location which is very important in Nairobi.

I stayed at Eka Hotel on a recent business trip to Nairobi. I picked the hotel strictly based on its proximity to the airport (Nairobi traffic is atrocious). I usually stay at the Tribe Hotel and have also stayed at the Serena, Holiday Inn, and Panari previously. The hotel has a good security setup and is fairly new construction. I... More

For $275, the bed was rock hard, the pillows and sheets were KMart quality, the wifi kept making me log in, the only food on premises is a Spur (think Sizzler or Ponderosa), the breakfast room was full of dirty tables and staff arguing with one another. You can do a lot better in Nairobi for this price. The only... More

We arrived at Nairobi Airport around midnight. Luckily this hotel is pretty close to the Airport. Very modern and comfortable rooms. Breakfast with lots of variety. When ending our trip we wanted to have one room just to rest and fresh up. But because we were a group of 10 (4 kids and 6 adults). We had to take 2... More

I stayed here for an overnight before my safari and also took a day room before catching my flight home. Day rooms are available at half the usual accommodation rate for the hours 12h00 to 18h00, although you can arrange to keep the room for an extra hour or two for an extra charge. Room was fairly compact but had... More

We spent one night at Eka Hotel before departing on Safari. The staff was wonderful and the hotel is clean (and very new!) with several amenities-gym, pool, restaurants, buffet breakfast, etc. We really enjoyed the close proximity to the airport.

Got to stay here on a 12-hour stopover on my way home compliments of Kenya Airways. The best part about this hotel is that it is near the Airport and you avoid the traffic of the city, so its ideal if you're in Nairobi on a stopover between flights. The hotel is well-furnished and comfortable. However, the rooms are a... More
