We stayed here for one night after our arrival in Windhoek. It is a simple guesthouse, but it does what it needs to do: It makes you feel safe, it serves excellent breakfast, and the owner lady is very nice. This makes up for the 60s style furniture in the rooms. If you want to spend more time in or...

Stayed here on the first & last nights of our safari tour. Run by very helpful people ( arranged taxis etc no problem ) Rooms were fine, & on the last night the provision of a large white bath was most welcome having been out on safari for ten days! Breakfast was fine, & plentiful supply of coffee & tea....

Excellent location to start off your trip in Namibia after you have just landed in Windhoek. Great price/quality, decent breakfast, friendly service and on a good location in town. No WiFi in the room though, but you can get connection around the reception area. All-in-all a great place for a night in Windhoek.

We had a very good experience. The family running this guesthouse is very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was laid back and the rooms spacious and clean. The city center is about 10 minutes away (on foot). Should you book a taxi to the airport through the guesthouse by a guy named Ricardo, make sure to leave in time. He...

This Guest House is highly recommended in the Lonely Planet. This place has indeed a very good price/quality compared to the other hotels. The owner of the gesthouse is extremely kind and available. From the lovely terrace it is possible to enjoy the beautiful sunset. Only one small flaw: the toilet was not very clean.

We stayed here on our first and last night in Namibia and was delighted by the friendly welcome. Security is their prime importance and we were given a key to unlock the sliding gate. Breakfast is 'continental' and no hot food (eggs) were offered. There is an honesty book to log down what drinks you have helped yourself to from...

This guesthouse is centrally located. Provides all you need with friendly service. It is very reasonable prices in comparison with other establishments of same or even less standard. Definitely recommended for a work stay over. Safe and secure parking.

Me and my husband stayed over on the 11th March 2014. We arrived late and after having dinner got to the guest house after 10 at night, there was no lights outside to guide us to our room! The room was very basic with NO kettle and although clean, the bedding is very old and looks totally run down, two...

Ziggy and her family run this comfortable B&B. Breakfast was great with a German flair of cold meats and cheese but eggs upon request. Breads are GREAT so save room. All the comforts you need and help with anything you want. Within easy walk of downtown Windhoek but not after dark. Good grocery within a couple of blocks for stocking...

The guesthouse is a family run business and in walking distance from the city center (5-10 min). Like all hotels in Windhoek, you fell a little bit like in Fort Knox with high walls and electrical fences. Positive: the staff is very helpful with reservations and recommendations. You can easily and safely store your luggage after checkout, and they offer...

“If you are travelling with kids ask for a family room (I saw the room of our neighbours, it was much bigger than ours, it had a sleeping area and a living area, so there is much more space). But for a single person or a couple a double room is more than enough!”
