"The Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 23 Jan 2010
"An architectural surprise: understated, clean lines clad in earthy colors and natural textures plus the sound of moving water produced by several well-placed ceramic-jar fountains and a reflecting pool.

Youthful staff is friendly and helpful – including the night watchman who retrieved our car key from the door of the car where we stupidly left it.

This location is convenient and easy to find when arriving via Windhoek Airport." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia

"Great place to relax & explore Windhoek"

2 nights Arrived 18 Oct 2009
"Attractive, spotlessly clean room. Pleasant areas to relax - comfy sofas inside and shadey tables and chairs outside. Great place to relax and read the guidebooks on arrival in Namibia or just look at the grass area over the road and the scrubby hillside. There's tea and coffee available throughout the day.

We enjoyed the walk into Windhoek - up over the hill through residential roads. The residential area surrounding the guesthouse is also very pleasant - another nice walk past jacaranda trees dripping with purple flowers. But the best thing is the friendliness of the staff - always a smile and cheerful greeting and happy to help." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"The Elegant Guesthouse review"

1 night Arrived 25 Jul 2009
"Our luggage was delayed at Frankfurt Airport and so we had to purchase 'emergency' supplies and were directed to the appropriate shops and warned that they closed at 1.00 (it was a Saturday). The following morning, the young woman on reception phoned the airport to find out where our luggage was, without being asked, which was so helpful and put us at our ease.

The accommodation was very elegant, the swimming pool was well placed and although far too cold for us, there were loungers for the brave." See all these reviews: 24n in Namibia; 11n in South Africa
