This a good option if you are looking for an hotel near the airports and want to avoid the Nairobi's traffic. It's around 20minutes from the International Airport and 10/15minutes to Wilson Airport. Make sure you ask for a room with a view to the internal patio/ pool as the others have a view to the road and are extremely... More

I had an overnight layover in Nairobi during a cross-continental flight, so I stayed at the Eka. It was a new, modern hotel where I had a clean and efficient room. I checked in late and checked out early to make my flight and left with a generally good impression. A few weeks later, however, I was contacted by my... More

Comfortable convenient hotel for 2 nights in transit. LOCATION: within 15 minutes of the airport, this is a great choice to avoid the Nairobi traffic when going to/from the airport. AMENITIES: restaurant serving all meals, swimming pool, small gym & a lounge area. Style is modern understated, nothing fancy or ultra luxurious. ROOMS: fairly standard but clean & comfortable. VALUE:... More

I have stayed here several times, I stayed here because my company has chosen this location for lodgings in Nairobi. I find the lighting within the rooms to be dim, making it difficult to see while getting some work done. The porters need to be more attentive when assistance is needed with baggage. No mini bar in the rooms. Just... More

After 24 hours of flying, the Eka Hotel was exactly what we needed. Friendly service, efficient check-in, clean rooms, and the hustle and bustle of Nairobi far away. Great connection to the airport which is a huge plus.

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Excellent service. Very convenient to airport, national park, etc. staff were all outstanding and efficient. When our early morning flight was cancelled we returned to the hotel and they went above and beyond our expectations to help us.

The best way to describe this hotel is to compare it to a typical 4-star business hotel in a big European city. The clean and soulless (not always a bad thing) environment, expensive and worldwide food and high price. However, not something in particular to complain about more than the price of both the room and food. We spent some... More

For a hotel of this quality to take 20 minutes to check in (15 of that queuing) at midnight is completely unacceptable. The rest of the hotel was fully functional, good and comfortable, but check in appalling.
