I can truly say that the treatment I received yesterday from the staff at the Eka hotel was the worst ever. I received a voucher from Kenya airways for breakfast bed and dinner. I communicated with both Caroline and Kevin to confirm that they will accept the voucher at Eka hotel. Caroline confirmed via email that everything was in order...

We stayed at Eka Hotel for a night each side of our safari. It is close to both airports which makes it a convenient choice. It is a busy, clean, modern hotel and appears to be popular with travellers, business people and airline staff. The rooms are modern and comfortable and work well for short stays. The service is friendly...

Close to the airport and we stayed here two nights one before and one after our trip to the Serengeti. No problem with leaving our main luggage here while we went to the Serengeti for a week as we were only allowed 15 kg of luggage in the small planes. Our transfer guide arranged everything with the staff so didn’t...

This was my first stay at the Eka Hotel. Although only for a day room, I found it to be a very nice hotel. Staff were extremely nice and helpful. I asked about getting my boarding pass printed, and they gave me the email address for the front desk. I was able to log into my airline from my room...

Hi guys, This is one of the best hotels, I have ever stayed in. Beautiful room and bathroom. Comfy bed. A spacious hotel. Spacious hallways. Excellent service. A modern hotel. Not in African style. It could be a hotel in New York or Amsterdam. The food is delicious. Very tastefull. A 30 minutes drive takes you to the airport. Regards....

We were so disappointed. But that being said this is a clean, busy, safe hotel in close proximity to the airport. The staff was lovely. We booked a one night stay to visit friends who were staying at the hotel. We arrived at 11pm exhausted only to be frustrated with the reception and confusion over resident rates. Rudeness was an...

Close to the airport, very friendly staff, new and nicely appointed rooms, delicious breakfast, and a really cool pool. They also let me check out 1.5 hrs late. There is a Nakumatt right next to the hotel.

Pluses are convenient for both JKIA and Wilson airfields saving a trek into Nairobi if you don't need to. We arrived late and we're leaving from Wilson the following day. The breakfast was OK, plenty of choice. Minuses were a rather soulless bar although nice to reacquaint with Tuskegee beer! The view outside was industrial although the pool whilst small...
