A friendly hotel, clean and tidy, perfect for a short stay. Convenient location for both Nairobi airports. Rooms are clean, tidy and functional.
We arrived late to check in but staff still cheerful and happy to help. excellent breakfast.

I found the Eka Hotel to offer convenience with its location just a few kilometres from both of Nairobi's airports. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. The down side is that there is not a separate bathroom but shower and toilet cubicles with frosted glass doors. Fine for single travellers or close couples but friends travelling might feel a bit uncomfortable.

Food was very good with a nice selection of items on the buffet as well as an a la carte menu that offers good varieties. TIP: The a la carte can often be cheaper than the buffet unless you expect to really eat a lot. I had prawns from the a la carte and they were delicious.

The breakfast buffet included an active station with bacon fried on the spot (and not stewing in a warming tray for hours). Eggs cooked to order.

The hotel will be opening a Spurs Restaurant by the 11th of November. This is a South African Chain and should be a great addition.

Room Tip: My room - 201 offered a view of the highway but was quiet.

We stayed for two nights and found this new hotel inviting, clean and comfortable. The rooms are nicely decorated and relatively quiet. We ate all of our meals here and really enjoyed them. A great place out of the rat race of Nairobi. The pool area was lovely and we had a wonderful relaxing massage at the spa. The staff went above and beyond to make our first visit to Nairobi a pleasantly memorable one.

This a brand new hotel with a modern interior. It is only 10 minutes drive for the airport and means you do not have to go in to central Nairobi. Can't comment on the food because we arrived late and left early. Service was good but if you pay in advance take documentation of your payment, as there appeared to be some confusion until we provided our barclaycard invoice.
The beds are very hard and there is no hairdryer in the room but I still think this is the place for a stop over.
