The Eka is more than half way between the airport and down town Nairobi. The location is good as a jumping off point to visit parks. The Nairobi traffic is terrible so if you can avoid going through the city during the week do so. We arrived on a Saturday night and then toured the Nairobi sites on Sunday which was perfect. The hotel is new so the rooms are very nice. The staff, especially the food cooks and the cleaning staff, were extremely friendly and helpful. There is free WiFi, just get the password at the front desk. There's a nice pool and very small landscaped area surrounded by a wall. The surrounding area has a lot of construction but there wasn't any noise. There is also a small workout room with three machines overlooking the pool. Excellent security. Not only are all vehicles inspected and signed in, there was a security officer patroling the faciltiy. The food was good, buffet style. We also ate in there restaurant with an American Indian Theme. The food was excellent. Hambergers, chicken and mexican was all very good. The only issue we had was with our room key, which seemed to deprogram easily and our request to get a hair dryer sent to the room. It took three requests for it to finally arrive. Since we were starting and ending our two week Kenya trip at he Eka, we were able to leave a bag at the hotel with our winter clothes. I'd reccomend staying here for it's location and newness. As a side note, if you're a birder and want to get an early start on your species list, you can bird right over the back wall which looks out over an empty lot and a small pond. We identified 25 different species of birds before breakfast!!!
