EKA was recommended to us by seasoned travelers and thus our expectations were such... The fifth time to Nairobi now I can confirm: EKA do give it the extra touch, very alert and intelligent staff. With the hindside I also will continue to shift, since at spot-on the same tariffs I can instantly find two more contestants as conveniently located,... More

I had to move to Eka due to road closures so that I could be near my course team mates to work on our project. It was a GREAT move. We were able to work all day with good service all day. Pity it rained all day .. Was looking forward to a dip in the gorgeous pool.

This is one of many stays here. I really enjoy coming back to this hotel... Everything works and the wifi quality is excellent. The staff are super friendly. The food in the restaurant is very good... but do not visit the Spur... It has a terrible reputation and after my last stay, I vowed never to eat there again.

Stayed here overnight in transit as the hotel is located between international and domestic airports. It is a good quality business type hotel with good facilities and decent food. On paper it is very close to both airports, but given the horrible traffic jams of Nairobi count on at least 45 minutes to do the 6k trip to Wilson airport... More

Eka is a classy hotel located on Mombasa road, approximately 6kms from Jomo Kenyatte International Airport. It is ideal among others for its proximity to the airport, having cut off the usual traffic jam of the Nairobi business district.
