Elegant Guesthouse

The Elegant Guesthouse is an oasis in Windhoek. It was straightforward to find driving from the airport. The staff were friendly and helpful and greeted us with a welcome drink. The guesthouse is close to the city centre - a short drive, we chose not to walk due to the heat and on the advice of staff at the guesthouse. We had an enjoyable dinner at Joe's Beer House - close by and well worth a visit (we took a taxi, NAD 50 each way).

Breakfast at the guesthouse was good, including eggs and bacon made to order.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The guesthouse is ideal for your first or last night in Namibia.

The Elegant Guesthouse final stop

Same comments as before. We ate outside at Fusion again, same wine, same food...

Disappointed with Windhoek shopping, although the Alte Fest Museum was well worth the visit. The National Art Gallery was closed on Saturday, not as Chris says in his book. It might have been interesting to have had a guided tour of even just 1 hour. We had most of the day available but couldn't really fill it given shopping wasn't attractive.

Elegant were very accommodating with our late departure for the airport at 1530 hours.

The Elegant Guesthouse review

Bedroom was smallish and dark. Just one member of staff on duty but it is only a B & B. Breakdfast was average. Handy for Joe's Beerhouse for an evening meal

Elegant Guesthouse - Windhoek

Very helpful and friendly staff. Easy access into downtown Windhoek. Secure and peaceful surroundings needed for the aftermath of a long flight in economy.

We ate at a new restaurant (opened in April) which was not on your list that you sent us called "Fusion". Good simple food, inexpensive, and can eat outside under the stars. An easy N$60 cab ride from the Elegant.

We were sorry that these travellers found the location of the Elegant Guesthouse a little inconvenient; put this in context by reading about their trip as a whole.

The Elegant Guesthouse review

A small modern place. Very clean and a great first night's stop in Namibia. Secured parking area with electronic controlled access made one feel comfortable, although raised questions about why one should need such arrangements! We tried the pool which was clean but found it too cold.

Staff helpful and attentive.
