Stayed one night as we were flying through Nairobi so we did not get a lot of time at the Eka hotel. Motel was very clean and well presented, felt safe due to the high security but found the welcoming from the staff to be very cold.

This hotel had been recommended by several friends who live in Kenya. It is one of the closest hotels to the airport and given the horrendous traffic jams in Nairobi it is always advisable to stay as close to the airport as possible to avoid being held up in traffic and missing your flight! It is a stylish slightly corporate... More

We needed an overnight stopover between flights on our way to Mombasa. We were advised to avoid downtown Nairobi because of traffic and the Eka was suggested. Because of a delayed arrival flight and a remarkably slow immigration process, we arrived at 0200 and have to leave at 0530. Nevertheless, we were checked in quickly by friendly staff. The bed...

It's a very nice and clean hotel near by airport. People are very nice and helpful. I stayed there fo 4 days - 3 nights. Very near to Nairobi National Park where can you find the zoo, safari walk and start your Safari by car.

Excellent check-in, great rooms, very clean and fabulous service. From concierge to front-desk - all very professional. Quiet and peaceful - just what a business traveller needs. Huge safe in the room for either laptop of handbag or both😇😇. I really enjoyed coming back here

First time at the EKA. I felt a distinct lack of welcome, the typical Kenyan hospitality. And as for pricing - certainly not value for money. The lady was disinterested in me and my colleagues when we checked in. The meal in the restaurant took forever to arrive, and was pretty bland. The room was comfortable and neat. I had... More

Great hotel with good facilities but the mattress needs to be changed - it was hard and made for an uncomfortable night. Good staff. Food was good. Nearby construction also made for noisy rooms at night. Safety was great.

If you're familiar with international hotels whose clientele are mainly business people, then you'll know exactly what to expect at the Eka. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course, and the Eka does it very well. The staff are efficient and friendly and the hotel is spotlessly clean. Rooms are typical four-star city centre hotel standard. You will... More

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... More
