I first tried this hotel when my company wanted a combined meeting and room package and it was about to open, usually we used the direct neighbouring hotel but were tired of too many issues.
The conference was a success and since then (two weeks after opening) Eka has been our default hotel in Nairobi. Location is of course excellent, being near to the airport when so many flights are early morning or late evening, we have a lot of one-night stop overs too as well as longer stays for local business.
What attracted me initially was the friendliness and openness of the staff from the gate security to the desk and room staff, smiles and greetings all the way. Two and a half years on and probably more than 100 nights here it is still excellent, great value, great service, always welcomed by name.
Highly recommended and for me best hotel in Nairobi (even compared to Intercon, and other "5*) at double the rates, very good rooms, quiet and easy to work in as well as relax.
Two notes: Rooms near the fire doors to each wing noisy due to doors slamming closed and breakfast attention to detail can be improved (always asking for knife, napkin, etc) .
Don't look elsewhere.
