After a long safari visit to Kenya, we stayed at EKA Hotel before returning to the United States. The room was superb with all the amenities well laied out.

We stayed there with best imaginable comfort and courtesy. They go great length to make guests feel comfortable. Though I stayed only a night, I preserve memory of it. That tells their quality of hospitality.

I am staying at the Eka hotel from Dec 26th through Jan 1st. The hotel is modern, well serviced and very clean (and I am very picky with cleanliness). The location is on Mombasa Road close to the airport so it isn't scenic but a good place to setup base while exploring Nairobi and its surroundings without paying exorbitant prices.... More

This was a poor choice of hotel. The EKA is much smaller than it appears on its website and feels like a motel, which makes the price irritatingly high. The room was clean enough but the views in every direction were of buildings and roadworks; indeed, the entire hotel seems to be surrounded by construction associated with the new airport... More

Although the hotel's website says 5KM from the airport it is closer to 8KM! Anyhow it is on the Mombasa Road which is the main road from the city centre to the airport. This is a new modern hotel with very well furnished and comfortable bedrooms. The welcome was friendly and the staff very helpful. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel... More

Dear Irvine, Happy New Year! Greetings from Eka Hotel and Thank you for the positive feedback on our products and services.

We spent about 8 hours here between a late arriving flight from Europe and an early flight to Zanzibar. The restaurant was good and accommodating for our late meal.

I landed on an overnight flight and the front desk couldn't find my reservation. Was kept at the front desk while they looked. Eventually asked if we could have breakfast while they checked.

True, if you want to stay near the airport because you have an early flight the next morning, the EKA Hotel is probably your best bet. That is, if you don't mind paying more than you get. The room was actually pretty good; it was spacious and comfortable, although the mattress was rock hard. Not the end of the world.... More
