Situated close to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport the Eka is an extremely modern and attractive medium sized hotel. The rooms are extremely well appointed and there is a pleasant bar and restaurant. There is also a very nice fast food steak house attached to the hotel where I had a truly excellent fillet steak. This is ideal for transit particularly... More

Along Mombasa road which is a direct shot to the airport. The beds are extremely comfortable and rooms tastefully decorated. There is a restaurant upstairs, even though I never ate there. The breakfast was amazing with lots to choose from. The downside is the price....its a little on the higher end. I highly recommend if you can afford it

I travel through Africa a lot - this month alone I will be transiting through Nairobi three times. On previous trips, I'd always stay at the Ole Sereni, an excellent hotel right next door to the Eka. But this month, it was fully booked - in fact all of the hotels I had stayed with in the past were fully... More

Stayed in the Eka hotel as a stopover for 18hrs or so as I was part of a flight crew. I don't know how long this hotel has been here but it looks fairly new! It's clean, tidy, good size shower/bathroom area. Comfortable large bed. As people have said its close to the Main airport also close to Wilson Airport... More

Stayed here on a stopover to Uganda. Very easy to get to from Jomo Kenyatta airport. About 15 mins on the road. Stayed for one night - rooms were clean, food good and check in and check out a breeze. As it's not in the city it's an easy commute as well.

Stayed for one night before beginning of safari holiday. Hotel is located about a 15-20min drive from the airport on the main route from airport to city..

We hoped it would be comfortable but it was perfect as a stop-over in Nairobi. There was no need to go into the city - which we wanted to avoid - as it's on the airport road. Be aware that the airport road is VERY busy especially at rush hour. We didn't do this, but I would imagine that it's... More
