"Cosy and friendly"

1 night Arrived 23 Oct 2015
"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!" See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"Great start to holiday at Elegant"

1 night Arrived 20 Jul 2015
"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." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"The Elegant Guesthouse"

1 night Arrived 23 Apr 2015
"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." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Quiet street and friendly staff"

1 night Arrived 28 Feb 2015
"The rooms are great but all located around a central atrium so mornings and evenings can be a little noisy.

Quite difficult to squeeze all the cars into the parking area if every room is full. Very welcoming and friendly staff." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Elegant Guesthouse is elegant"

1 night Arrived 28 Jan 2015
"The rooms are very comfortable. The parking is secure. The duty manager was very helpful. We needed to leave at 6.15 to catch our flight.

She arrived early to ensure that we were able to have breakfast before we left.

The rooms have wifi, very useful after being out of range for a couple of days and gave us the opportunity to check our flight status." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia
