"Very short overnight at EKA"

1 night Arrived 22 Sep 2018
"We were only at this hotel for about 10hrs (overnight). All seemed good (room, staff, food).

Location between airports also useful in cutting down travel in Nairobi traffic. Although the location was useful to us I am not sure I would have wanted to stay longer to 'recover' from flight and orientate to Africa as surroundings did not appear to be that brilliant."

"Eka Hotel review"

1 night Arrived 15 Nov 2017
"Ground floor rooms are much better than those on the lower level - I think you should request that your clients are never given lower ground rooms

We did have a ground floor room this time - phew

I really like this hotel as it's functional and friendly and the breakfast and bar are good" See all these reviews: 29n in Kenya

"A modern hotel with quick access to airport"

2 nights Arrived 26 Oct 2017
"The hotel is only 15 minutes drive from Nairobi airport so this was good for our late evening arrival and early morning departure. Also we were able to visit the giraffe centre in the Karen district and the David Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary in the national park without having to tackle Nairobi's traffic in the more central area.

The concierge very helpfully suggested we should hire the hotel's comfortable transport and driver for a half day at a fixed fee and the friendly driver accordingly took us to the places we wanted to visit and once there waited until we were ready to leave.

The bedroom was the only negative. We were shown to a double room despite our booking having requested a twin room - this was immediately rectified - but for a father and adult daughter travelling together and sharing, the bathroom was not ideal as instead of a separate room it took the form, in the modern style, of glazed cubicles for shower and wc, with the washbasin area not enclosed at all. For many travelling companions this would be a negative." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 2n in Kenya
