I am staying at the Eka hotel from Dec 26th through Jan 1st. The hotel is modern, well serviced and very clean (and I am very picky with cleanliness). The location is on Mombasa Road close to the airport so it isn't scenic but a good place to setup base while exploring Nairobi and its surroundings without paying exorbitant prices. Staff are extremely cordial, the room is always spotless when I return and I have been able to use the free WIFI to get work done. The bed was firm, just the way I like it and my room faced the pool, so it was very quiet and I slept wonderfully throughout. Full breakfast buffet was included in the rate and was very good (fresh fruit, pastries, omelet station and various hot breakfast dishes). There is a nice pool and a outdoor lounge area where I sat and did work occasionally. I'm female and staying here alone but have felt completely safe as staff are very visible and everyone entering the hotel goes through security check. For a special rate of about $135 per night, this hotel was well worth it and I will likely use it again on my next trip. Would also highly recommend for anyone needing a good hotel for an airport layover (it would help you avoid the crazy Nairobi traffic).
