“Excellent hotel for an overnight stay between flights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

I stayed here when my Kenya Airways flight was delayed for 14hours. The hotel was clean and plesant, and the staff were very nice. however the set menu given to people whos stay in sponsored by the airlines was pretty poor. instead i went to Spur and paid for myself.
the rooms are very nicely decorated and the facilites in the rooms are adequate for a short stay. Complimentary wifi was appreciated.

The ribs at soaring eagle spur are to die for.Never tasted such good ribs and its my ideal eat-out place when i don't feel like having dinner at home.Excellent service too.Except for the breeze upstairs that makes your food get cold in a split second,everything else is okay.

We stayed at Eka hotel on the 17th April before going to Amboseli and Tsavo National Parks. It is on the main Mombasa road close to the airport which was very handy.
The hotel is very new and modern. The staff were professional and very friendly.
Our room was on the first floor, very nicely decorated, however we found the bed very hard. The room was spacious and clean. There are power ports at the desk to include US, European, and UK plugs, very handy for travellers. There is not a separate bathroom rather a shower and a toilet cubicle with frosted glass, and a sink unit divided by a wall from the bedroom area, with a glass window. However the shower has an out of this world rain shower head.
As we arrived very late in the evening we did not had any dinner, however the buffet breakfast was lovely, with plenty of choice.
There was free WI-FI in the hotel with good connection, which was handy to keep in touch with family at home.

A five star facility along the Airport road. Location is excellent, breakfast excellent, rooms very comfortable and clean but service/Staff was not as friendly as we expected to find them. We decided to try another hotel for our last night in Nairobi to experience the hospitality. Generally, 4 out of 10. A bit pricey both on menu and rooms.

Dear Rhym,

Thank you for sharing your valued concern with us.

We sincerely agree that losing one’s personal effects is always a highly frustrating event, more so when one is abroad, and where Identification and bank cards are concerned.

As a host in this unfortunate situation we are limited to assist, and accompany the guest towards recovery as far as possible of which in this incident this was achieved and wish to reassure no single effort was spared to recover the lost items.

This particular incident has challenged us to enhance our surveillance to ascertain nothing is left to hazard, in ensuring our guests comfort and safety as a renowned most secure hotel in Nairobi

We sincerely hope this regrettable incident will not withhold you from visiting Nairobi, and Eka Hotel, soon again.

With regards.

In an excellent location close to international airport . Great service and good facilities, the pool area was wonderful, however the water was very cold.
The bar had an excellent choice of drinks and the rooms are spacious, modern and extremely clean. The hotel restaurant had a good selection, both for breakfast and dinner, there is an other restaurant within the hotel which we tried and again good quality and good produce.

We used this venue for a 2 day conference.
The staff are quite polite and friendly and made our stay very nice. The food is of excellent standard.
Driving up to Eka though, especially in the morning, can be a nightmare due to the heavy traffic on Mombasa Road. Otherwise it is very much worth a visit.
