Great 'old charm' atmosphere, awesome views and even more awesome sunsets, especially while sipping an aperitif! Rooms are large and very comfortable and service is impeccable. Breakfast and dinners are just great.

Well known is the house on the hill which has now become a small hotel. I remember it from my childhood days. I visited for sundowners and dinner with a friend. We wanted a a place with a view and a nice meal which is what we got. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was outstanding. My meal...

They are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is an enjoyable one. The deck offers beautiful sunsets accompanied by drinks it makes the trip very enjoyable and assists in unwinding after a long day.

Dear Reviewer Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We are aware that there was a problem with our internet connection during the time of your stay.

Booked for convenience for last night before handing back our hire cars. It is high on a very steep hill overlooking Windhoek. Rooms are comfortable but what makes this such a find is the food and service. There are terraces to eat and drink outside and in the evening a restaurant with panoramic views. Ask for a table by one...

The hotel is placed on a hilltop on the outskirts of Windhoek. Good parking and nice view. My room was on the ground floor facing the parking lot. Not the best of rooms. Other people from our party were very satisfied with their rooms on the first floor. The restaurant serves very good food in a very good environment. The...

Beautiful Hotel. Friendly staff. Just glad I checked my bill before paying. Other guests who left without paying we added to my bill. Three bottles of wine plus water. More than $N 400. Staff knew about it by tried to recuperate their loss from me. You can stay at Hotel Thule with its beautiful views of Windhoek but always check...

Dear Reviewer We would like to thank you for your feedback and also to sincerely apologise for the negative experience when settling your bill. This is most certainly not the way we run our business at Thule and bringing such errors to light helps us look into the matter afterward.

We stayed twice! We didn't plan in advance, and just called and they gave us a discount on the rack rate. It used to be a private residence, and you certainly feel like you are in the Hollywood Hills in LA - with great views - and the former residence has panoramic views from what is now the restaurant. Obviously...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Thule was originally a one-time luxury home built by the late Edmund Lafrenz in 1960 as a sumptuous home for himself and his late wife, Liselotte. It was purchased by Windhoek businessman and entrepreneur, Wolfgang Egerer just before the turn of the century, who then reconstructed it into the beautiful up-market 25 bedroom hotel it is today. The outstanding panoramic views over Windhoek are a unique and unparalleled feature of this pearl of Namibia. Hotel Thule offers first class accommodation, quality service, tranquillity and style to ensure customer satisfaction. ... more   less
