I stayed at the Sun for 8 days on business. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff friendly. The only downside was that my office had not arranged for early check-in and I arrived mid-morning after 30+ hours traveling only to find out that my room would not be available until 4:00. Due to the way they clean the... More

Clean, comfortable and affordable. Buffet was included in the rate. Food was okay. I was on a business trip and the hotel met my needs. Friendly and helpful staff. Booking through the hotel reservations got me a discount.

The hotel is touted as a 5 Star hotel! I was very impressed that I got upgraded after booking online and really looked forward to a relaxing evening watching TV and sipping on some wine... I was informed that their phones were not working upon checking in and these were sorted out within no time. Both TV sets were nonoperational... More

I was travelling alone and stayed at the Maseru Sun. The staff could not have been more helpful. The bedroom was beautiful with a huge bathroom. The room had a balcony with a chair to sit out on.The breakfast was as good as any other hotel I have stayed in. It has a lovely lobby with plenty sofas to relax... More

Booked into the Maseru Sun Hotel with high hopes taking into account the reputation of this hotel chain. Well, was I mistaken! The staff are friendly and you can see they are trying really hard to make the most of a neglected hotel in dire need of a revamp. The rooms are dated and bathrooms rundown. However everything is clean... More

If you are coming to do business in Maseru this is the place to stay. It's super clean, decent internet connection, comfortable and the food is very good. They have a buffet as well as a nice Asian Restaurant. The gym is a little bit old. Also, the location is perfect to go for a quick hike in the mountains... More

Stayed extensively at Maseru Sun during my 05 month stint in 2012 with the local operations of major South Africa based bank in Maseru. Maseru Sun is part of the premier South Africa based Sun International group having interests in Resorts, Safari Camps, Business Hotels, etc. Maseru Sun along with its luxurious cousin Lesotho Sun are the only two options...

Top tip: Make sure you stick the right address in your Sat Nav or you'll end up at the wrong hotel. The Lesotho Sun looks better so, if you've not already booked, then consider there. The Maseru Sun (once I'd put in the right address) was actually perfectly acceptable. The dinner buffet was huge and great value as was breakfast.... More

There arent a lot of big hotels in Maseru, and this property (along with big sister Lesotho Sun) is considered top-tier. The hotel is old, therefore the rooms are very spacious and come with a balcony - in my case, one overlooking the valley and a standalone hill. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the room - especially the natural wake-up... More

I have visited lesotho several times and stayed at both sun international properties (see separate review of lesotho sun). There are very limited hotel options in Maseru and lesotho generally so this needs to be taken into context when choosing your hotel. The Maseru sun is older and cheaper than its more upmarket sister hotel but as it does not... More
