If you flying within Namibia then this hotel is good as it's a stone throws away from the domestic airport. I had no option but to get a room in the business section which was not up to spec looking at the rates per night. Overall not bad if you have a early domestic flight out.

Dear nazseedat Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment and for choosing to stay at Hotel Safari. Your comments have been shared with the team. Hotel Safari has been in existence since 1966 and is therefore not a modern hotel, although it has undergone quite a few refurbishments. I hope the above clarifies your queries. We look... More

The staff was great, everybody is really helpful. The rooms are not luxurious but they are decent. WiFi was not so good, I lost connection every 30 min and they have a long access code which makes it a bit overwhelming. I got confused with 2 hotels in the same place: Hotel Safari (3 stars) and Safari Court (4 stars)... More

I stayed for a week, my second time at Safari Hotel. Everything was fine, with adequate food, good rooms, and spacious grounds. I like to walk, and the location was relatively good, close to several walkable neighborhoods, or a spin by the city airport down the street.

Overall the staff are the best asset of this hotel - in my experience they pick-up what is in essence a fairly tired place. The rooms are very outdated and basic with aircons that make more noise than cool air and a radio that badly receives only one (German) station. The main building (reception and the restaurant) is somewhat better... More

We stayed here one night after trekking across from Zimbabwe. It is a very large complex comprising two hotels the Safari and Safari Lodge. We stayed in the former, older hotel. The rooms are a bit basic and the TV's are bit aged but it's perfectly comfortable for the odd night. The wi-if is erratic and did not work at... More

I had a terrible experience from this hotel. I was booked there and was not able to bath as there was no water. I was offered three 1 litre bottles of water to wash my face.very disappointed. I will never stay at this hotel again.

We stayed at the Safari for a bit over two weeks on a combination business and sightseeing trip. First off, it should be made clear that there are two separate hotels on this property, the Safari and the Safari Court. We stayed at the Safari, an older, bigger facility. The Safari Court is a much newer hotel. There is a... More
