Reviewed 7 April 2017 via mobile

The guesthouse is located close to the city center and a solid choice for travellers. Rooms are nice and clean. What we didn't like is that you have to pay extra for WiFi, something that should be included in 2017. The same holds true for breakfast, were you have to pay extra for eggs and bacon. Nevertheless a solid choice,...

Thank you for your feedback. I'm pleased to advise that as per April 1, 2017 all direct bookings include free and unlimited WiFi. Tour operators/agents can choose between several packages (with/without WiFi, with/without English breakfast, etc.) and most of them book a package that includes WiFi and a continental breakfast, but excludes an English breakfast. As the majority opt for...

Internet is very slow and caps connections every few mbs, then you have to disconnect and reconnect. Can't even access my online mail using basic html. No aircon in rooms, in case you require this especially for the Windhoek heat.

I'm sorry to hear that your Internet connection was not to your satisfaction. We have placed boosters in strategic places to ensure the signal reaches all the rooms, but it does happen every now and then that the boosters loose their connection with the router. Only by re-setting the boosters and router will the connection be re-established and up to...

We stayed for one night before starting a 14 day camping trip. The rooms are tidy and comfortable. There is a pool in the courtyard. It is around the corner from the Namibian Institute of Culinary Education which was recommended for dinner by the receptionist.Breakfast is generous and the resident cat is very friendly.

Yvonne was a fantastic and very friendly host. She even helped us book our car for our long drive. We really felt at home and were very enthusiastic with the wonderful breakfast we had in the morning The pool and the rooms were much larger than expected from the pictures

Nice, lovely room with fridge in the center of Windhoek. Rooms are with breakfast. Every room has his own bathroom. Only one point of improvement: airconditioning would be nice as it can be very hot in Windhoek. Now there is only a fan.

Vondelhof guesthouse is a small hotel and neat little place. Nice looking rooms, neat modern bathroom and a little outdoor patio area. The breakfast was included which was great. We arrived late on Christmas eve and Yvonne was friendly and showed us around. We also had to make some changes to the reservation and Yvonne and Penny were very accommodating...

Thank you for your positive review. Although none of the Namibian insects are harmful and it is perfectly safe to leave the patio doors open, screen doors are a good suggestion. I will certainly look into that.

We were informed that the buffet breakfast was included in the price and only after leaving and inspecting the bill did we realize we had been charged for the buffet breakfast plus the charge for the extra eggs we had ordered..

Vondelhof, Owner at Vondelhof Guesthouse, responded to this review

The continental breakfast buffet is indeed included in the standard room rate. Only for bookkeeping and reporting purposes is it specified on your account. When you add the charges for accommodation, tourism levy and continental breakfast on your invoice, you will find that this adds up to the rate that you were quoted. I apologise for the confusion, but am...

Clean rooms, friendly people, close to the centre of Windhoek and a great swimmingpool. The staff made our stay very comfortable and were very helpful with tips, tricks, and booking a nice restaurant in the evening. As we were on honeymoon, the hotel gave us a nice present upon arrival.

If not fully booked Vondelhof is my standard address for a business trip to Windhoek. Strategically located and good value for money. Only downside is the wifi. I don't mind to pas N$25 per day as long it is working in the room and properly fast. Unfortunately both isn't. Otherwise you will see me here more often.

Thank you for your feedback. Returning customers is the best advertising we can ask for and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future. We have installed boosters to improve the WiFi, but the speed is not always what we would like it to be. From our side we have invested in the necessary hardware to...

The warm welcome to the guest house was just the thing to be comfortable and to relax after a long flight. The room was nice, spacious and very clean. The ideal place to prepare our trip through Namibia and Botswana with the four wheel drive by the pool. The guesthouse has a quiet location just outside the center of Windhoek,...
