Quiet street and friendly staff

The rooms are great but all located around a central atrium so mornings and evenings can be a little noisy.

Quite difficult to squeeze all the cars into the parking area if every room is full. Very welcoming and friendly staff.

Elegant Guesthouse is elegant

The rooms are very comfortable. The parking is secure. The duty manager was very helpful. We needed to leave at 6.15 to catch our flight.

She arrived early to ensure that we were able to have breakfast before we left.

The rooms have wifi, very useful after being out of range for a couple of days and gave us the opportunity to check our flight status.

Elegant Guesthouse review

Only there one night on way to airport. Breakfast good staff friendly. Ideally close to Joes Beerhouse so no taxi needed to go or return.

Staff quite sweet in that they worried I might get mugged. Been in a lot rougher towns.

Great option for Windhoek

This was a great guesthouse to stay at for a night in Windhoek. The reason it gets a rating of "Good" down the line is because we're comparing it to all the other places we stayed along our trip, most of which deserve an "excellent" rating because they are so special.

The Elegant Guesthouse is a cozy place located in Klein Windhoek. The decor is modern. They have an "honesty bar" with a good selection of beverages at very fair prices. There's free WiFi so you can do your last-minute Internet surfing before heading out on your gleefully WiFi-free adventure. The rooms are all around a small peaceful courtyard - the only downside to this is that if you have the door or curtains open then you don't have privacy from the other guests.

The people at the front desk are helpful, if not very cheerful. They arranged a cab for us which took us downtown where we wandered around for a bit (Windhoek isn't that interesting, let's face it), then took us to Joe's Beerhouse for dinner, then back to the hotel (you pay the taxi drivers there at the end of the evening for all your rides).

Breakfast was good - the German continental type breakfast that is served everywhere we stayed in Namibia. There is a good grocery store nearby so after we checked out of the guesthouse they let us store our luggage with them while we shopped because they said it wasn't safe to leave our stuff in the car unattended. So that was helpful.

This Elegant Guesthouse is a pleasant option for your first night or last night in Namibia, but if your trip is anything like ours you will stay in many more memorable places!

Great start to our holiday!

A great little guesthouse with a very helpful receptionist who recommended an excellent restaurant. Our room was clean and well equipped. The breakfast was very good - buffet style but with an option of a cooked plateful.

Taxi easily available for trips into the centre of town and also to the restaurant. There was secure parking for our car.

Great place to stay

I bought a bow and arrow set from the Bushmen at Nhoma and it was too long to fit in my luggage. The staff at Elegant guesthouse advised me that it would have to be wrapped with bubble wrap to carry on to the airplane. She searched storage and found some bubble wrap, then wrapped my bow. I carried it onto the air plane with no problem until I arrived in the States. The airlines then put the bow with the luggage and it safely arrived home.

Elegant Guesthouse review

The staff were friendly and the room was good. It was an overnight stopover after the flight and was very good from that point of view. The breakfast was good and cooked by a very friendly, happy member of the team.

The location was ok but the staff were very keen that we did not walk out in the evening for safety reasons.
