Reviewed May 10, 2016

If you're familiar with international hotels whose clientele are mainly business people, then you'll know exactly what to expect at the Eka.

Rooms are typical four-star city centre hotel standard. You will...

Originally, I booked Nairobi Tented Camp but because of the heavy rains the camp was flooded. So, the camp booked me to Eka Hotel. As one previous reviewer wrote "nothing wrong but overpriced", that's also my opinion. Rooms are big, clean, friendly staff, fast internet. Dinner was ok (very good desserts!) but breakfast was really good. Quite close to Jomo...

Traveled for business & stayed for a week. Great hotel, pleasant staff, good breakfast, well maintained rooms. I did not face any issue during my stay & the hotel is also guarded by tight security measure which makes you feel safe.

I stayed at Eka Hotel in Nairobi for two nights upon arrival and departure from Kenya. The hotel was clean, quiet, and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food selection for breakfast and dinner was exceptional. Upon departure our second night, they prepared a boxed breakfast as we checked out at 2:00 a.m., which was greatly appreciated. Would...

I was very impressed with the Eka hotel and thought it was a very nice,smart,modern hotel - exactly as one might find in popular chain hotels in Europe. There was tight security in place as one might expect - the hotel is gated and your bags go through an airport style scanner at the hotel entrance. The process is all...
