I do not have any real gripes about this Guesthouse but in reading the reviews obviously others do. I was there for four nights and found my room spacious and the bed very comfortable, bed linen was fine however the towels in the bathroom needed replacing as I needed to use both to try and dry myself but was never...

I was mildly disappointed because I have stayed at several better guesthouses in Windhoek - but at the price KWGH is a solid choice, particularly for families or groups sharing a room. It is clean and reasonably comfortable, staff are friendly although don't go out of their way to assist. There is some noise from other rooms and the main... More

I really do recommend this guesthouse for all travelers wanting a clean, comfortable, no fuss stay. The staff is well trained and very helpful. The breakfast was a highlight with a variety of options to choose from and a car hire facility is available for a minimum charge. I stayed three nights and will make use of this guesthouse next...

I'm thankful for trip advisor for the opportunity to warn customers about this place. I have never encountered such bad service in my entire life laced with extremely bad attitude. Got checked into a dingy a room there on a business trip and within two minutes decided I that I could not stomach one night in the place. Went to... More

Klein Windhoek is, in fact, a street full of houses converted to rooms. It is well positioned and seemingly very popular. My experience is that it is great for an overnight or holiday stop-over, but not good for the business travel. There were no proper desks in the rooms we were given, and no laptop safes.

The place has a no care attitude , the waitress leaned on the table , not friendly. ordered the Pernod snails , no Pernod in the dish ask to speak to the manager , I'm still waiting , service is just bad , the food ok. Rather spend your Monday down the road .

Very busy guesthouse, with a busy restaurant with a fairly wide, but basic menu. Wifi connection is not very reliable. There is only 1 hairdrier for the entire hotel. The kitchenette's and refrigerators are very handy and good sized for 1-2 people. Towels were damp and musty.

We had a family unit for two nights and the room was neat and clean. The restaurant noise and large car volume did create a few issues, but none that some smart parking could not deal with. We may be back a 3rd year.

we spent two nights at kwgh in windhoek. it's ok for a short stopover, but do not expect staff to be very customer-oriented or more friendly than necessary. towels seem to be of a material that never dries. food at the restaurant is good and not too costly. not too far from town centre.

The restaurant staff could not be bother with serving and when we complained we got such attitude. I had to educate the reception about the info on their website eg the Walk they make sound so wonderful is actually just a walk around the block. The breakfast staff was shocking. This is our 3rd stay and sad to say our... More
