We stayed here for two nights before our safari started, we arrived late at night and had arranged with Macushla for us to be picked up from the airport by a driver. This worked pefectly, the hotel is probably about 30 mins drive from the airport (depending on time of day). After arriving we were welcomed and led to our rooms, we had a double and a twin. They were both lovely rooms. Just before we turned in, we had a cup of Kenyan tea/coffee which was very much appreciated after being on the go for 15 hours.
The hotel is located in the Karen suburb which is a quieter upmarket area and ideally located if you want to visit the attractions in Karen such as the Kazuri Bead Factory and Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary.
Breakfast was great with a wide array of cooked items and / or cereals etc. We also had an evening meal which was also of good quality.
Hot water bottles in the beds at night along with mosquito nets meant a nice comfortable nights sleep.
The grounds and communal rooms are lovely and the staff very friendly and efficient. Particular thanks to Nancie who I corresponded with when making the booking, Peter for his hospitality in the evenings and Wilson for doing an excellent job on the rooms. But everyone was very friendly.
As you will probably find out, staying in Nairobi is pretty tricky to do on a 'middle of the road' budget as hotels appear to be very expensive so if you want a safe quiet stay with good travelling distance to lots of the Nairobi sights I think Macushla is good value choice.
