Arriving in Nairobi for one night before going on safari, I booked the EKA Hotel, given its close proximity to the airport. Only a sort taxi ride 1800ksh one way from the airport, the hotel is friendly, comfortable and the food is good. Definitely the right choice for us for a stopover in Nairobi, we ended going back on our... More

This was my second time staying in this quaint hotel on my way to wildlife safari. Its neat, spacious room and a good value for money. There is a restaurant which caters good food. Just perfect for a short stay. 15 minutes drive from the airport which is a big boon. And for someone who is going to Masai Mara,... More

I have stayed at Eka Hotel a few times and also gone there for meals and enjoyed the experience, each time. The services are good, staff are welcoming and the food is great, a blend of African and international cuisine that meets your expectations. I fully recommend it!

Stayed at Eka twice over the course of a week. Clean, modern hotel, but lots of construction going on. No real privacy between the bathroom facilities and the rest of the room. Food in the restaurant was really good. Service was poor at front desk and housekeeping. Something as simple as a request for more towels seemed impossible for the... More

We stayed in the Eka hotel for our first two nights of our stay in Kenya. The hotel was nice, secure, easy to access from the hotel. The rooms are spacious and to a reasonable European standard, but there isn't much in the area, we haven't left the building without a guided tour. The hotel has a pool and gym... More

This is a smart looking, clean hotel with mod cons and good wifi. The staff are friendly, but the service is slow, slow, slow.
