The EKA Hotel was conveniently positioned for access to the airport. The breakfast buffet was extensive and good. There is a Spur on the property as well. My room had the hardest bed I have ever slept on. No rooms available for smokers.

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
