Stayed in the Eka hotel as a stopover for 18hrs or so as I was part of a flight crew.

I don't know how long this hotel has been here but it looks fairly new! It's clean, tidy, good size shower/bathroom area. Comfortable large bed. As people have said its close to the Main airport also close to Wilson Airport where most of the flights go from it flying onto a safari.

I didn't eat at the hotel but all looked very good, and also a 'Spurrs' restaurant on site.

Sadly the pool area was out of action as they were at the time doing a bit of re-ferb to slabs around the pool area. Defiantly could stay here as a base for a few night IF the pool wasn't out of action!
I would chose this over the Panari Hotel down the road!(I've also reviewed!)

Room Tip: Try and face away from main road!

Stayed here on a stopover to Uganda. Very easy to get to from Jomo Kenyatta airport. About 15 mins on the road. Stayed for one night - rooms were clean, food good and check in and check out a breeze. As it's not in the city it's an easy commute as well.

Stayed for one night before beginning of safari holiday. Hotel is located about a 15-20min drive from the airport on the main route from airport to city.. Its not in the city at all, which i think is a bonus as it would any central city traffic snarls. Room was spacious, clean and appointed with all the things you basically need. No real view to speak of but we did arrive at 9pm and were gone by 7am so it wasn't important anyway. As others have noted in other reviews the place can be noisy.. as in you hear other room doors opening and closing, and given its used frequently for travellers like ourselves, its quite possible you will hear other persons enter / exit their rooms throughout night/early morning.. Its what it is, deal with it. Worth noting is that there is also a tex mex type restaurant attached to the hotel so if you arrived at night like we did it served perfectly acceptable food for a quick meal before going to bed.. Would recommend, and stay there again, if i had to do a similar trip..

We hoped it would be comfortable but it was perfect as a stop-over in Nairobi. There was no need to go into the city - which we wanted to avoid - as it's on the airport road. Be aware that the airport road is VERY busy especially at rush hour. We didn't do this, but I would imagine that it's easy to do a safari at the National Park as you can see it from the hotel. The security was good, and the staff were friendly and helpful. They stored our bags while we went on safari in the Masai Mara, marking them fragile. They had a free business centre (ie free computers with internet access). The breakfast was good and the pool was a nice bonus. It was also good for us to have a fast food place as part of the hotel as well as the posher restaurant. Did the job perfectly for us.

We arrived late in Nairobi and flew right threw the burned up airport. Polson's Travel was there to collect and took us to the Eka Hotel for our overnight stay before leaving the next day for Arusha.

The Eka is a friendly, clean, and comfortable business hotel near the airport (within 10 minutes or so) and is an easy exit to leave for Tanzania by car or plane. We went by car and it is easier by the way than another flight and a 45 minute drive from Kilimanjaro Airport.

Anyway, the AC was good, the bed comfortable, great bathroom. The Staff was very friendly.

The buffet breakfast was excellent and the breakfast chef made me a great omellete.
