Okay stay in a city hotel

The Avani was a high-rise conference hotel in the centre of Windhoek. For self-drivers, the multi-storey car park entrance was at the back of the hotel, not the front, and had reserved parking for Avani guests on an upper floor (was it the 4th?) with a bridge directly into the hotel. These points would have been useful to know beforehand!

The rooftop bar was pleasant but very busy (Wednesday evening) and they couldn't offer us a table for an evening meal so we ate in the ground floor cafe. Since I was ill the following day - perhaps a reaction to the malaria tablets I was taking - I didn't see anything of Windhoek, but the rest of our party did explore some of the sights, although the zoological gardens weren't well maintained (perhaps due to the current drought) and the Alte Feste - the old German fort - was closed until further notice.

Breakfast service wasn't particularly friendly or efficient, with an unsmiling greeter demanding room numbers and food spilled on the floor by the chefs, however the location of the hotel was convenient for sightseeing, and as a stepping off point for the airport it was a good choice.

Avani Windhoek Hotel review

The hotel and surroundings are having some renovation work carried out which was a little disruptive. Although efforts had been made to work around this disruption signage could have been better about revised arrangements (like how to get to the parking garage or access a working elevator). Staff were efficient and friendly enough and breakfast was good.

Check in and check out we're both well managed.

Avani Windhoek Hotel review

Perfect for the first night - good location.

Would recommend NICE for dinner for anyone staying there about at 10 min walk away - the concierge recommended it.

Kalahari Sands Hotel review

This is a hotel in Africa trying to be a big posh all serves european or american hotel which sort of worked the bits that didn't gave you some interesting insight into trying to operate such a concept in Africa.

We slept well and had quick reasonable room service.

Only negative is that they had alot of staff around obviously with wage structures that required them to almost beg for tips.

Convenient location for one night.

Overall, the hotel was good but we felt that the staff were not particularly friendly. They did what was necessary but no more.

We had dinner at Joe's Beer House. The meal was good but the service was very slow.
