On this trip I stayed 2 times at EKA, once overnight when arriving at Jomo Kenyatta before travelling on from Wilson airport, the second time was a "day room" between arriving from Zanzibar in the morning and before continuing to Europe at midnight through Jomo Kenyatta. The beds are a little hard, but the rooms are modern and comfortable. The...

Nice hotel maybe over priced, food expensive and small portions. Rooms are very clean and modern. Not an easy hotel to get to as you have to go a long way back past the airport and then turn around and come back so taxis are expensive

The ambience is exquisite, staff so professional and friendly, the service was amazing and not forgetting the food. If you happen to be there during sunset you get a treat of...

Being our honeymoon, we arrived to a room decorated with rose petals, a bottle of wine, and well wishes from the staff. The rooms are modern, spacious and have the luxury of air conditioning (very much appreciated after...

We stayed at Eka for one night after we first arrived in Nairobi and before heading out early the next morning for Rwanda. It was perfect for what we wanted. Hotel was clean and the service was good.

We've stayed at a few hotels in nairobi, but we'll try somewhere else next time. The beds are extremely hard, air conditioning not very good. The bathroom is all open, so zero privacy.We complained about the hard beds and were moved to a room with slightly softer beds. It's close to jkia and Wilson airports, checkin was fine,breakfast good and...
