I stayed at Hotel Safari for one night during a business trip to Windhoek. I'm afraid it wasn't the best experience. First, so. many. cats. Stray cats everywhere. They feed stray cats (see photo) which has its benefits in keeping other undesirable creatures away, but also, eew. The room itself was rather dated. You could tell that they had made...

Dear MzanziTraveller Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment . It is so unfortunate that you do not like cats. For a property like ours, these cats help hugely with pest control and they are also loved by most of our guests. With regards to the room, we have two different hotels on the same property. You...

The room i was staying in was superb and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at the adjacent Safari Court Hotel was very tasty. They also had an ATM in their lobby for ready cash withdrawal instead of going downtown.

I stayed here for one night as part of a G Adventures tour. The grounds of the hotel were quite nice but the rooms were quite dated.

This hotel has seen better days. Furniture, carpets, bathrooms are fairly run-down and in need of renovations. Our room was a bit smelly, too. WiFi often not functional in the rooms, computer system needed to be constantly rebooted. Location a bit out of the way and not exactly convenient to downtown Windhoek. The cash machine in the lobby was out...

I travelled to Windhoek for the presentation of a technical workshop. My wife and I stayed at the Safari Hotel, a stray which we really did enjoy. Apart from a minor glitch where we had no hot water as a result of a burst geyser, the occasion was memorable in many respects. The staff were both friendly and professional. The...

If you flying within Namibia then this hotel is good as it's a stone throws away from the domestic airport. I had no option but to get a room in the business section which was not up to spec looking at the rates per night. Overall not bad if you have a early domestic flight out.

WiFi was not so good, I lost connection every 30 min and they have a long access code which makes it a bit overwhelming.

I stayed for a week, my second time at Safari Hotel. Everything was fine, with adequate food, good rooms, and spacious grounds. I like to walk, and the location was relatively good, close to several walkable neighborhoods, or a spin by the city airport down the street.

Overall the staff are the best asset of this hotel - in my experience they pick-up what is in essence a fairly tired place. The rooms are very outdated and basic with aircons that make more noise than cool air and a radio that badly receives only one (German) station. The main building (reception and the restaurant) is somewhat better...
