The relatively-new Eka Hotel sits far away from downtown Nairobi but it is, on the other hand, reasonably convenient to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and that makes it a fine place for just-arriving or soon-to-leave travelers. Considering its cost, however, the Eka leaves something to be desired. Its rooms, for instance, are small; there are no closets or places to hang up one's clothes; the hotel apparently does not furnish wash clothes in the bathroom and the arrangement of that room makes it almost impossible to open the glassed-in shower or toilet room doors without ramming them into something or another. On the other hand, the wi-fi works seamlessly and the breakfast buffet is just superb, with excellent and quite ample food, thoughtful and caring waiters, and a very pleasant place to eat. That latter fact alone merits it an extra star from both my wife and myself.
The Eka Hotel is a welcome addition to Nairobi's lodging possibilities. We'd readily stay there again should we come to Nairobi. If decimal scoring were possible, I think that we'd rate the Eka about a 3.75. As it is, however, a 4 is in no way unfair.
