4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My room was very pleasant and with good air conditioning which is rare in this price range. The bathroom was beautifully decorated and the shower was very pleasant. There were some toiletries supplied. Also fresh milk, teabags and a reasonably priced minibar. However it's a shame there wasn't much of a seating area in the room, most places I stayed... More

We stayed at this Guest House on three separate occasions, and it just happened that we had three different hosts All of them extraordinarily pleasant people! The breakfast buffet is very good and well composed for a Western pallet. The rooms are spacious, clean, and with a silent, efficient a/c, and a fridge with drinks. It takes about 20 minutes...

This quiet and impeccably clean B&B is on a back street in a safe and well maintained area of Windhoek and is near shopping and restaurants as well. The staff and owners who manage the place were all very helpful and friendly and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a well priced retreat while visiting Windhoek.

Maison Ambre is a great place to start and/or finish your trip in Namibia. We stayed our first and last night there and were warmly welcomed both times. The rooms are good in size and nicely furnished. We particularly liked the bar and table in the pool area. There is a fridge by the pool filled with beer, ciders and... More

We only stayed here 1 night and it was fabulous. We would have liked to have stayed longer but they were booked. Everyone was very helpful. The guesthouse is located in a great neighbourhood with easy walking to great restaurants. Breakfast was delicous and plentiful. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything that you could expect from a guesthouse - Maison Ambre has it. It is comfortable, clean, has good location, nice breakfast. The only thing that i found missing was the relaxing atmosphere. Everyone was welcoming and friendly, but sometimes it felt more like supervising than making conversation, but maybe it was just for us, because most of the older... More

Good location with easy access to downtown Windhoek on the main road in from the airport, rooms comfortable without being luxurious, breakfasts very good,; outstanding feature was the warm-hearted welcome from the staff.

My wife and I spent three nights at Maison Ambre. The hosts are wonderful, we had a great welcome. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast was great (with some amazing french cheese). On our last day, I had to leave super early to catch a flight, and I was provided with a pack breakfast! I... More

We stayed with Beate last year for 6 nights and there was no hesitation or discussion where to stay when we planned our trip to Windhoek this year. We stayed 5 nights this time and enjoyed it as much as before. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, accommodating and attentative. Even though we stay in the self-catering unit, which is...
