A beautiful place to stay. Congenial staff, food great and not overpriced.Comfortable large sized room I had Suite 6, next to the entrance.Hot water bottle at night was a nice touch. I was able to leave a few belongings behind prior to my Safari so I was not overweight on the small aircraft. They were waiting for me on my... More

This hotel is too good to be true. It is small, but the rooms are just enormous with king sized bed, walk-in showers, and huge tubs. They have a veranda, an entry foyer, and wonderful room appointments. There is an espresso machine in the room, a hammock in a small patio, and couches and easy chairs. In short it cannot... More

Stayed here with the family in June 2015. We stayed here on the way in and out of Namibia for a safari tour. The location is at the top of a hill in a quiet and upscale neighborhood...while being close enough to walk downtown (2km). The rooms were a big surprise to me...each suite is designed differently to reflect the... More

What a great hotel. We had the best made to order breakfast here. Had a very good dinner at a reasonable price which was nice because you are kind of a captive here if you are on a fly safari as we were. I got a fabulous, much needed hot stone 90 min. massage in our suite which was very... More

Eco friendly boutique hotel in a quite corner of Windhoek with dedicated personal service and exelent food to match . We booked one of the premier suites and enjoyed the complete private outside area with a plunge pool. Here every suite refects a different region in NAMIBIA. They are extremely spacious and individually decorated in a cool contemporary style but... More

We stayed in room 4- an enormous suite delightfully decorated in an eclectic mix of driftwood, modern glass, steel, solid marble... The decor almost defies description but the result is wonderful. The bathroom is huge and delightful while the bed is almost as big and absolutely sumptuous! This is 5 star unique African city comfort and style at its peak.... More

We spent a night here on our way into Namibia and then again on the way out. It was a fabulous experience, great hotel staff, amazing room. One of the nicest hotels to stay. The service was excellent and the food in restaurant was really good and better than trying to find somewhere to eat in Windhoek. We should have... More

The rooms detail and decor blew me away. Friendly and helpful staff and with an amazing restaurant and stunning evening view of Windhoek City Lights. Even the Breakfast & Coffee was memorable. Over all, I can't wait for my next visit.

Windhoek is a bit small for a capital city to speak of its suburbs, but this excellent boutique hotel has a very relaxed, leafy and classy suburban feel to it, located in the rolling hills of Eros neighbourhood (still within walking distance of the city center). It's very well designed and kept, with much eye for detail. The suites are... More
