We spend the night we arrived in Nairobi at the Macushla House. Our room was dark and the bathroom floor flooded from the shower. The staff was warm and friendly. The breakfast that came with the room was delicious.
The house has a nice garden,...More
I stayed here 3 separate times during the course of my visit to Kenya. It is very close to several Nairobi attractions (Giraffe Centre, Sheldrik Wildlife Trust, Kuzari Beads, Utamaduni Craft Centre, and Marula Studios). Each time I stayed I received great service. I loved...More
Our stay at Macushla House was pleasant. The room was comfortable and we were able to rest up from our long journey from the US. Since it's a little more remote than some of the accommodations in Karen, there was wildlife all around. Especially evident...More
This charming little hotel is ideal as a jumping point around Karen. The rooms are lovely, in a gorgeous garden setting where the monkeys run wild. The staff are exceptionally nice and helpful. Breakfast, which is included, is perfect, and don't hesitate to grab lunch...More
We spent a terrific couple of days at Macushla House before heading off on safari. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Relaxing in the garden is a nice getaway from Nairobi's noice and traffic. Staff are very helpful.

I arrived into NBO at night and it was about 10pm when we headed to Macushla House. I was met by drivers from the tour company. It is quite a drive from the airport (40 minutes) but in the dark seems longer. Also, on arrival to the house, there was an area power outage which made it really dark. The drivers were familiar with the area, but the roads were hard to choose. But they found it in the pitch blackness. When we pulled up, a woman from the house happily greeted us with a lantern and took me to my room (which was totally dark so she left the lantern). It was good enough to take a quick shower and unpack a few things until morning. You're very close to the orphanage. I'm sure they can get a driver for you. The company I was working with sent someone for me, my guide, who spent the day taking me to Nakumatt, public ellie visits, Kazuri, Utmanduni Crafts, back to the adoptive parent elephant time, then back to Macushla. Hopes this helps.
