I scaled down the rating on this hotel for a simple reason---economics. I downgrade any hotel that does not provide inclusive internet (they do), airport transfer when close to the airport (they dont), or breakfast (they dont). Sorry guys...strip down at high rates dont cut it...get with reality. I departed from Ole Sereni for the same reason...rates are high (but... More

I stayed at the Eka for 1 night- choosing it as a stopover as i was due to fly onwards to Malawi the next day. Everything was smooth - from the airport pickup to check in and check out. The breakfast was very good, my room was spacious, bed comfortable. All staff were polite and charming. I would highly recommend.

Because of a bad situation with the airline we ended up getting put up in this hotels ended the silver lining! Great amenities, excellent food! The only thing was smoking allowed in the rooms and it smelled like people had smoked in the halls! While it may not be the most luxurious room, from having just travelled on bumpy dusty... More

My wife and I stayed one night on arriving in Nairobi after 22 hours of travel from Philadelphia and leaving the next morning for 2 weeks of safari. Being between the international and domestic airports make the Eka a perfect spot to recuperate and the facilities make it easy. Rooms are modern with excellent beds. The pool and outside terrace...

We spent one day at the Eka Hotel. Security is pretty tight and it is very close to the airport. The rooms are spacious and equipped with all mod cons. Separate shower and toilet, facilities to make tea or coffee in the room. The wifi is excellent, fast and free. Staff is very friendly; our electric kettle gave us some... More

We stayed one night prior to a safari. It is a fairly new hotel and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It has good security so you feel very safe. They have two restaurants. One is fine dining with reasonable prices and great food. The second is a "Spur" restaurant. It is similar to an Applebees or Chilis but with... More

The Eka seems to be the hotel where the pilots etc stay, as it is close to the airport. It is also next to the main highway, so it is somewhat noisy. It is comfortable but certain nothing special. It is gated with a security guard, so we felt safe. I wouldn't choose this hotel. Our travel agent seated it.... More

This hotel was the start of a 12 day safari. We were a bit worried pulling up to armed guards and a security entrance like an airport, but once past that, the hotel was very well decorated with excellent comfortable rooms. Staff was most helpful and patient with a couple travelers that had just spent the last 22 hours on... More

We stayed here before and following a safari and couldn't be more pleased. The staff were extremely professional and helpful. They even helped us with our boarding passes. Clean and comfortable hotel, good restaurants, WONDERFUL staff. And, they are close to both airports which makes for quick and easy transit. I highly recommend the Eka.
