The hotel is about 13 km from the airport which can still take a while during rush hours due to traffic as construction is going on a new highway.

Their shuttle service works great with the driver waiting for me even though my flight was delayed by over two hours.

They are very Covid aware. Room for my first stay had a tape on it indicating it had been disinfected and had a Covid kit (mask, gel, sanitizing tissue). I was allowed to check in early for my second stay and my room didn't have this probably because I checked in early.

There is a restaurant with average food and it can take a while to get your food.

There is a mall opposite the hotel with several eateries.

The room was very clean; WIFI free and good.

I would happily stay here again.

Very efficient staff, everyone welcome to go the extra mile. I was there for work. Convenient for the airport and for business trip. Not really near anywhere walkable outside. But that was not my need. Nice rooms, good room service, choice of restaurants. Just wish the hotel would use big water bottles and have guests refill, rather than provide countless plastic bottles. Kenya bans plastic bags, so EKA should not be using so many small plastic bottles.

Stopped here for two nights as flight in was late and we wanted to rest before travelling to Masai Mara for safari.

Easy check in and whilst it was late c12am, the kitchen prepared four meals for us.

Breakfast buffet was good with lots of choice.

Rooms were decent size but the doors to the toilet and shower compartment were heavy glass and quickly banged shut if you didn’t catch them.

The shower in our room wasn’t good and needed adjusting so it didn’t go over the separating wall and wash the walls of the toilet. Even after adjusting, the quantity of the shower head was poor and sprayed everywhere including under the door so towels needed to be placed on the floor to avoid a flood.

The patio with the pool was a restful place and shortly after we sat down, we were provided with towels for the sun beds. Two of our party used the small gym which overlooked the pool and whilst wasn’t fully kitted out, they could do some workouts.

Whilst is says it is 5 minutes from the airport, this is optimistic and is more like 15 from the airport and a bit quicker going back.

We stayed twice at this hotel, both times to be near the airport, and both times we were very pleased by the care and attention paid by the hotel staff. We asked for a breakfast box when we had to leave the hotel for a very early morning flight, and it was lovely. Just what we needed. The hotel is close to Wilson and Jomo Kenyatta airports, and far enough out of the main stream of traffic. Quiet. A great choice.

All of the Hotel employees are gracious and helpful and speak English well. I was especially glad the hotel employs a nurse--Mercy, because my brother came down with Covid, and she gave us advice and checked on him every day. InkaMed pharmacy is across the street and is also helpful.
Eunice and Judith at the front desk were patient and helpful with reserving day trips, and making sure we could stay longer, because of the Covid.
Our housekeeper, Ruth, was helpful in making us more comfortable and bringing water to my brother when he was sick. The breakfast buffet is phenomenal and I loved the fresh fruit.
The location is perfect and there is also a well-stocked supermarket across the street.
The gift shop had good prices for souvenirs, and it was easier and less expensive than the Massai market across the street.
Go visit the elephant orphanage or nearby Nairobi National Park.

This was one of three airport hotels I have stayed in in Nairobi in February. It is very clean and the public toilets smell lovely.

The rooms are lovely and most of the staff are really good (reception, cleaners, porters, guest services and the "fast food" restaurant. The main restaurant and its staff really let it down.

The buffets are poor on choice and quality. The a la cart menu is lovely but very very slow. Not sure why it seems to take second place to the buffet. I went to the coffee shop once and stood waiting while the lady in the resturant ignored me so much so that one of the consierge staff went and got her to serve me.

Also the restaurant is so close to the front of the building that food smells are strong all the time which isnt always great.

The rooms are lovely with good facilities and great pillows. The showers were the best in all of the 7 locations we stayed in this visit

Really feel the main restaurant needs attention and staff need need more.

Stayed here a couple times at either end of a safari trip to the Masai Mara. The first time for two nights on arrival in Kenya and the second just as a day room before our later flight back to london. The rooms are well structured with everything you need, the shower works well, the beds are comfortable and the room is very claen and organised.
The staff we met were friendly and professional and could answer the few questions we had. Breakfast buffet was all that you need with excellent coffee and service was prompt. We aslo are in restaurant a couple of time can definitely recommend the chick stir fry and rice - so good I had it twice! There was also a singer oneevening and jazz musicians which added to the ambience. There isn't much in the surrounding area apart from the mall next door which is pretty empty but does have a handy supermarket. It's close to both airports and the small pool area is pleasant to sit and read a book etc. The main purpose of our trip was the safari but the EKA worked really well as a staging post for that and would stay again.

Only 15mins from the International Airport, this is a perfect stop over hotel. It's next door to a Mall but its a very quiet one, and also very close to the Nairobi National Park. Professional and helpful service and good food choices. They offer airport transfers for $25 but Uber is $7. Good gate security and nice rooms. We'd stay again on a stop over no problem.
