Where to stay in Maseru

A sure benefit of a quiet and small town like Maseru is that each hotel can be accessed quickly via taxi or public transport. The majority of the accommodations follow the main boulevard, which makes commuting easy. For those looking for something more removed from the hustle and bustle of the city center, the lakeside in the north is home to a few budget-friendly hotels and guesthouses. All establishments can be reached by taxi; the pricier ones usually have internet connection, as well.
