client reviews

Mrs Imogen Stewart

"Great hotel with two slight drawbacks: Took them a long time to find our reservation when we checked in at 3am due to problem with plane. Less glass in the room and more doors would make it easier to share with a friend."

Mr. Ron Noah
"A very, very nice hotel - but not a feel good place like the two lodges. We liked staying there (for 6 hours) but didn't feel like we belonged."
Doctor Richard Taylor
"Close to airport. Souless. Isolated. Nowhere to walk to. No choice of eating out. Wrong side of town for next day/A2 road. Almost 1 hr away from operators base. 1 1/2 hrs late to start as traffic horrendous. Good for last night as close to airport for 5.30 pick up"
Mr. Phillip Mansley
"We were here for only a few hours. The service was good, friendly and efficient. It met all our requirements."
Mr. Lewis Brown
"Eka Hotel is a good, clean, if fairly basic hotel (I would say equivalent in standard to a good 3-star European hotel). It's a good place to stay near Jomo Kenyatta airport if you don't want to travel straight on when arriving late. Reception was a little chaotic both on arrival and departure but I understand this was due to a marathon taking place outside which meant that people had to leave early to avoid road closures."
