We were very disappointed with this guesthouse. We arrived late afternoon after a long trip. The gate was closed and so we rang the bell. I rang at least twenty times and there was no answer so I rang the landline and also a mobile number for the guesthouse. Both phones were constantly engaged for at least 20 minutes (... More

The guesthouse is located in a quiet and safe part of the city. Most of the rooms are big with DSTV and a small fridge. My room had a little dampness on the wall and no door for the shower so water spilt out during a shower. Otherwise it was great.

I use to enjoy the questhouse, but admit the quality of service has gone down. I could not sleep later than 6h30 as the noise the kitchen staff make is unasked for. No consideration for sleeping guests. Was met at the gate by a sweaty security guard who stood with a few other men at the gate in the dark... More

A well located place with absolutely friendly people to have a relaxing, quiet stopover. Walking distance to the mall. Fireplace helps during cold winter evenings. Breakfast is enough. Would stay definitely again.

High standards of cleanliness - sheets very clean and well ironed. Bed comfy. Nice to have choice of DSTV channels. Nice outside area. Breakfasts a bit limited. Friendly staff. Rooms can be a bit noisy if there are guests dining. Staff sometimes make a lot of noise too. Overall a good stay but not as good as last time. Need... More

I stayed at the Fig Tree for a month. During that time Erich the property manager and Ceila the chef made me feel completely at home and were very accommodating -- even helped me coordinate and plan weekend excursions. The guest house looks just like the pictures -- is very modern, clean, safe and conveniently located -- only about 5... More

Our only complaint about the Fig Tree is a complaint we had throughout Namibia; the beds are hard by American standards. Having said that, this is a great place to stay in Windhoek. Our room was spacious and dominated by a jacuzzi tub and a king-size bed. There were double sinks and a large mirror, a great feature of the... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by Fig Tree, which turned out to be a fantastic choice. The common areas and rooms are all stylish, modern, comfortable and peaceful. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The small guesthouse is relatively close to town and a good value. I'd definitely stay here again on my next visit to Windhoek!
