Lovely friendly guesthouse

We were greeted with a friendly welcome and a refreshing drink. This guesthouse was clean, airy and beautifully decorated. It was a great introduction to Namibia. Breakfast was freshly made to order and the muesli was particularly tasty.

Complimentary tea and coffee was available at all times.

This guesthouse was ideal either for a 1st or last night in Windhoek.

Elegant Guesthouse review

Friendly welcome, room was clean, quite spacious and well-presented.

We were given much useful advice about the local area and a dinner reservation made for us at Joe's and a taxi provided for our trip there.

Really good breakfast and very attractive setting.

Elegant Guesthouse review

Very helpful staff, particularly when it came to local knowledge and to booking taxis etc.
They were also very helpful when it came to dealing with a large unpleasant spider in the room in the middle of the night.

Cosy and friendly

Only a small guesthouse, but just what we needed. Matilda looked after all our needs and cooked a fine breakfast as well.

a taxi was arranged to take us to Joe's Beerhouse a few minutes away and to bring us back. Don't miss it for a really different environment, we have never seen anything like it, outside or in. The interior/exterior designers must have scoured every flea market / junkshop / skip in southern Africa to get all the items with which the place is adorned. The food and beer were great and the service was better than expected, but......

Do the staff enjoy working there? Smiles were not very frequent anywhere!

Friendly Service, Luxury Boutique Guesthouse

Beautiful first place to stay on arrival, the staff were very helpful, there was private parking and the rooms were very nice.

Breakfast was delicious and the supermarket and restaurants were just a short distance away, making it a good location too.

Great start to holiday at Elegant

Elegant Guesthouse was very easy to find from the international Airport.

Although Windhoek is not hard to drive in Elegant is on the edge nearest the airport and this makes navigation easy. Rooms were a good size with comfy beds. Short 5 min walk to Joes Beer House as well - great place to eat zebra and drink good beer.

The Elegant Guesthouse

The Elegant Guesthouse was fine but nothing special. It was our least favorite lodging. They made us a little uncomfortable when they said we should not walk anywhere for dinner because the neighborhood was not safe.

I suppose I should thank them for their concern but maybe Expert Africa can choose a hotel in a different neighborhood.

Expert Africa comments

We’re sorry to hear these travellers didn’t feel comfortable when advised against walking to dinner from Elegant. As with all lodges in Namibia, the safety of guests is a paramount concern, and so this warning would probably be echoed throughout Windhoek, not just in this particular neighbourhood. Although Windhoek is a relatively safe city, as in most major cities there is occasional opportunistic theft towards tourists – and so we would always recommend our travellers drive or take a taxi to dinner, rather than walk.
