Very good overall. Excellent security. Big gates, fences, etc. Check in good. Checkout 10:00 not so good but, on request, they extended it to 12:00 for no extra charge, which was excellent. Restaurant open till 11:00pm. Good soup and beer in bar. Money changing facilities at reception but not the best rates. Room very good. Well furnished. Good bed. Not... More

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... More

We stayed at this hotel as it was close to both airports that we were connecting through (Jomo Kenyatta and Wilson). It is a great location the hotel was clean staff and were accommodating. A bit tight for two adults and a child and rooms at the back on ground floor are good

We had a very pleasant overnight stop here as it is well situated between the international and domestic airports. Leave plenty of time to get to the airport as the traffic is truly horrendous - in future we will try and time our trip for the weekend as the journey takes a quarter of the time.
