Avani Windhoek Hotel: Our full report

Good (80%) From 4 reviews
All year

In the heart of Windhoek’s CBD the Avani Windhoek Hotel and Casino (formerly known as the Kalahari Sands Hotel) has a convenient location. As for many large hotels it offers a high level of facilities and comfort, but it's also good value. There are 156 rooms of varying types and there is a decent restaurant: The Dunes Restaurant and the Oasis bar lounge, which has a terrace overlooking Independence Avenue. As the name suggests there is a casino for those who fancy a flutter.

Our view

Stay here if you want to be in the centre of town with ease of access to bars, restaurants and shops, but be aware that this is a large hotel so may lack the personal attention that you would usually get in a smaller bed and breakfast.
