I just want to thank Mike and the team for making my life so special on Wednesday night. We arrived back from the coast and I have never ever been so emotionally and physically exhausted as I was that day. What a wonderful gift I got from The Olive Exclusive – the best room in the world - that room... More

I read all of the reviews looking forward to spending the night here. I was so disappointed. The hotel seemed neglected. Our room was spacious but did not have a clean feeling. The dinner was fair. Breakfast was good. But overall I think the hotel is in need of some sprucing up.

We stayed twice in this hotel: one night after our arrival in Windhoek and one night before our departure. The rooms are magnificent with a great design, very comfortable and very well equipped. The service is very efficient and friendly. The restaurant is excellent. The "mini buffet" breakfast is amazing. We can only recommend this hotel.

Wonderful place, vey tastefully done suites with a pleasant atmosphere. Great staff and nice surroundings. Close, actually walking distance, to town. All said would definitively recommend and come back. Only shortcoming: breakfast too sweet, what about some toasts ( but when I asked for them and I got it!).

We were there for our Honeymoon and we spent only one night. The room was big and very nicely decorated. We had a terasse and a hammock. The restaurant is also really good, and the breakfast was awesome.

We stayed a night enroute to to a safari. Sadly only a night. We have found a real gem and The Olive Exclusive will now be our only Windhoek Hotel. The rooms are awesome...great decor and the staff friendly and helpful. Worth a stay

Our last day in Namibia was spent at the Olive Exclusive in Windhoek. Having traveled extensively and stayed at some amazing places, we were blown away by the Olive Exclusive. It's quirky with amazing decor. We stayed in a suite where old parts of the original building were used to decorate the rooms, and I say rooms! We had a... More

Travel to Windhoek on regular basis. I stayed at The Olive for first time. It meets all my expectations and more. Amazingly friendly staff, well furnished rooms, problem free WiFi, very nice restaurant, beautiful decor. A must stay. I will go back.
