Stayed in Villa Verdi as I wanted to be within walking distance from down town. Walking to town is about 10/15 min.Shopping centre not too far. Guest house only serves breakfast, take away delivery possible ( never with change, so be prepared!). Wifi on the terrace. Friendly staff. No restaurants near by. Restaurant Nice is about 10/15 min.

Great for a stopover in Windhoek. 10 mins walk to City Centre. Relaxing outdoor lounge and pool. Bed and breakfast only. 24 hour secure access. Drinks available by pool all day. Breakfast part self service but pleasant terrace where it's served.

We stayed in Villa Verdi Guesthouse during 3 nights (not consecutive ones) at 2 different rooms last August 2012. This was our hotel during our first day in Windhoek at the beginning of our honey moon trip in Namibia, once back from Botswana and before going home. It's a very well located hotel, at walking distance from the shopping area...

We were a family of 5 adults that recently stayed at Villa Verdi. The overall condition of the Guesthouse looks good on face value, however this place lacks when comparing it in the leading lodges category. We stayed in 3 different rooms, with 2 of them being atrocious, no better words to describe these dodgy, creepy, bug invested rooms. The...

Although one of so called "leading lodges" , it is in poor condition. I hope the quality as improved since we were there as they placed a very nice belgian guy to manage it, but i doubt he will be able to change the bad habits they have there !There are definitely better places to stay in windhoek.

I booked to stay at this hotel using hotels.com as I was flying to Namibia and it was absolutely vital I had a hotel with a good internet connection. I had previously rejected a hotel in Windhoek on the grounds that it could not guarantee fast internet, and so was reassured that Villa Verdi advertised a fast internet connection. My...

Dear Dave, We are really sorry for this inconvenience, it is true that we have had problems with our internet but these are not really to blame on the guesthouse. Stable and high speed internet is not easy to find in Namibia. Due to your report I've selected a new internet service provider and we now offer Wi-Fi free of...

The web pictures are incredibly deceiving! I am a well travelled person and I know when I am being ripped off and Villa Verdi's rates are ridiculous for what is offered 1. On arrival I had to get out of my car and open the gate to drive in and the establishment is not in one of the best areas...
