They open my backpack that was inside the room while we were visiting the city to take out my properties. At least they could have add toilet paper while they were robbing in my room. But it looks that would be too much for them Avoid this place for sure

Best value in town. Basic but clean and comfortable rooms with en-suite at a very cheap price. No air conditioning but a good fan which I found perfectly adequate. Breakfast is included in the price. Please note that it used to be called the Christmas Tree Hotel but it is now called the MS HOTEL. I think it has been...

We arrived late night thanks to "recomendation" mady by taxi driver. I had to ask three times for an extra blanket and towel. Sheets with holes. Leaking toilet. No coffee on breakfast. We swiftly moved to Midland hotel.

Because the hotel is recommended in the Lonely Planet, we spent two nights there. We regretted it: On the second night, while we were out for dinner, someone sneaked into our room and stole 30.000 Schillings and some clothes of my girlfriend. We suspect it was the waitress (who we saw sneaking around the corridors earlier). It definately had to...

If you are looking for a good cheap budget place this is it. Basic rooms with bed, net and bathroom. Staff is uninterested and uninspired, restaurant is over priced but it will do if you're trying to save money.
