Have been stopping here with my guests from the United States of America on our way to Serengeti. Staff members are great and breakfast is superb. Everyone is doing great job. Peaceful nights, comfortable rooms and outstanding cleanliness. Well done team Eka!

We needed an overnight room close the the International Airport as our flight LEFT at 5 AM. Eka fit all our needs and got us a few hours sleep, a nice shower and everyone was efficient and friendly. Having the restaurant in the hotel was a bonus for this type of stay.

Staff are excellent and attentive; rooms are bright, clean, and well-appointed. The lunch buffet staff kept the dishes open after 'closing' for our party of four, as we arrived late and were very hungry. Excellent food and service.

We stayed here for one night before an early flight back to the UK. Nice and clean, good security. Only about 20 mins to the airport, depending on traffic. Breakfast started at 5.30 so we managed to fit it in. Friendly and halpful staff.

A modern international hotel near the airport. It had a very high standard of accommodation and amenities. The bar area was very pleasant though quite small for a hotel of that size. Rooms were luxurious and meals very nice and well presented. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Have stayed there three times in the last 4 years. Very convenient place to stay close to the Nairobi airport. Good rooms, nice and clean bathroom and good food. The front desk staff aren't very hospitable though. Apart from the bellboys, most of the staff in the hotel looked slightly disinterested.
