the very sparse Rooms have no interior windows besides entrance door. Low beds, effectively on the floor, wifi codes work per hour and in lobby only, sad environment. Bedsheets were full of huge visible holes. nevertheless the staff was very friendly.

The decor and furnishings are modern and tasteful. There is a lovely little pool area, although we did not have enought time to use it. The front desk booked us a... More

I stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the feel of the place with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The atmosphere is relaxed with airy and clean rooms. Although a set menu each night the dinners were really good and are worth the extra cost.

Lovely small guesthouse towards the northern edge of Windhoek in a middle class area. Small pool and sun terrace. Decor was tasteful/modern and decorated to a high standard. Spacious rooms with wet room facilities. Food was good and dinner was very reasonable. Service was efficient, and staff helpful. Close to supermarket and petrol station to stock up for onward journey
