“A great surprise”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We had occasion to visit Pietermaritzburg after a family member had passed away. After an exhausting time struggling to find guest house accommodation, I relented and decided to try the Stay Easy hotel. The name did not excite me, however my wife and I have not stopped telling everyone about the really great experience that we enjoyed. The staff were welcoming, helpful, friendly and simply could not do enough to ensure that we enjoyed the 2 days that we spent there. The room was beautifully clean, comfortable and had all the facilities that any traveller would require including free wireless internet connectivity. We would most certainly always consider staying at a StayEasy hotel wherever possible. Thank you to all of the staff from Central Reservations to the hotel staff at every level.

Room Tip: No smoking, non-pool facing

What a pleasant surprize after being told that this Hotel is built on a Parking lot, quite the contrary, it does not have to stand back. Although it is adjacent the Midlands Mall, it makes it all the better. Breakfast is simple, but the staff members were all very friendly. We received vouchers for dinner, which could be used at 4 different restaurants at the mall, all just next to the Hotel. The hotel do no cater for dinner, but in the evening there is a little bar, and a big screen for those who do not wish to watch TV in their rooms. The rooms are small, but has all the important things in. This little Hotel is just right for those who need a clean, cosy, pleasant place to sleep over.

Stayed here for 1 night for the comerades marathon and royal show. On a side note staff members told me there was no place avail. Only zama was honest and told me rooms were available. She's the best staff member. The hotel is new and clean, right next to the highway and biggest mall in this city. Rooms are small but feel cosy and decent. This is probably the best hotel choice in pietermaritzburg. Breakfast is a limited but enough to fill you up. I would stay here again.

First day, I could not sleep due to noise made by people gathered around the pool area. Second day, I was burning the midnight oil, and I needed I cup of coffee/cappuccino from the coffee machine but I was denied by the gentleman on duty and I was only handed couple of sachets without milk :(

Be sure to bring your own milk for your extra cup of coffee and your skin lotion. The wi-fi connectivity is provided at a cost :(

However without deterring anyone away, the rooms are quite nice and well maintained. I liked the fact that they are within walking distance to the mall :)
They can do better...

Stayed at this establishment from 1st May for 4 nights.
Overall very clean - rooms are cleaned early every morning and the staff are constantly cleaning floors, escalator etc.,

Rooms are small but for what you are paying you cannot expect a bigger room.

Staff are very helpful, breakfast is good.

Bar does not stock much - no wine when we arrived in the late afternoon and there is only a breakfast meal available - however the mall is right on the doorstep with many restaurants and shops to choose from.

Very convenient place to stay. Would recommend

Excellant place to stay over. At the shopping malls door easy to access. rooms are small but well kept and perfect for a couple. All in all it is a good "Stay Easy" hotel to visit. Must keep in mind that the rooms are good for what you pay for. Breakfast is a standard breakfast but good muffins.
