"Villa Violet - a flying visit"

1 night Arrived 12 May 2023
"Villa Violet was comfortable and a useful overnight stop to refresh after long flights before setting off on our road trip the next day.

In our opinion it is suitable as a one night stop over - it’s in the suburbs of Windhoek so if you wanted to see the city perhaps not the best location." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 28 Aug 2022
"A very comfortable and welcoming first stop, very handy from the airport from which it was easy to find, being on the east side of Windhoek as you enter the city.

Staff were very welcoming and helpful, pointing us to restaurants for lunch and dinner and booking a table for the latter." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

A nice quiet hotel that was well located for our brief stop. Nice room and good, helpful staff.

We didn't have time for breakfast so no comment on the food." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Villa Violet review"

2 nights Arrived 1 Jun 2022
"It was a lovely intimate lodge for two nights to see Windhoek before our departure by plane. The place was small, compact and well designed. The architect clearly mastered function with pleasing and attractive features. The staff was pleasant and very helpful with all our needs from finding the proper restaurant, advising where not to walk to getting a COVID test. The neighborhood was attractive and the walk to downtown was a treat." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 10n in Botswana

"Villa Violet review"

2 nights Arrived 24 Apr 2022
"Room was nice with limited wifi in room due to its location in the complex.

The staff was outstanding and took care of all of us as we arrived in Namibia. A great place to stay at start of our trip. Staff recommendations for restaurants and arranging taxis was very helpful. Taxi necessary for getting around in the area without a vehicle." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia; 8n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
