“Nice Modern Hotel”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Good modern hotel located on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway in Nairobi City. Good rooms with modern amenities. Very nice restaurant with a great breakfast buffet spread. Convenient located only 15 mins from the airport.

Stayed at EKA overnight before flight to the Maasai Mara. It's an airport hotel, basically it's ok but obviously nothing special. Location is close to both the main n the safari airports but appalling traffic means the transfer still takes up to an hour in morning rush hour. The walls and ceilings are paper thin and you hear constant noise if u stay on the LG floor. We kept hearing what sounded like pins dropping on the floor of the room above us. Followed by every now n again a loud crash waking us up. We were probably below the kitchen. No noise really from adjacent guest rooms but a constant racket in the corridor. If u have earplugs it will be ok.

The shower floods because it doesn't drain fast enough and the toilet didn't flush.The door/entry into the hall where my room was didn't have a shock absorber attached so it would slam shut when someone entered the hall.Beautiful hotel and comfortable bed though

Smart, efficient friendly staff, who remember you after a few months, very welcoming
great food too, for a mid range hotel. Handy for the industrial area and Athi River.
Also has a Spur for those aficionados!
the view is not great , but hey, its in the business district , not in the bush.

Room Tip: 215 and 413 were mine for 3 nights each, both very good with nice beds.

nice rooms, modern, clean high class styling, food all right but not more. view from all rooms is boring with no interest. perfect for short business trips. great internet, (quite rare in kenya), although you have to renew the connection every now and then. close to the airport, saves a lot of time in trafic.

Stayed at the hotel thanks to.missing our connecting flight. Excellant service wherein the staff whipped us a hot indian meal at 1am in the morning. Great breakfast spread with many options. Large spacious rooms with all modern amenities. An excellent option if wanting to live near the airport.
