This hotel is run down! I am surprised that the Protea chain allows this venue to represent their brand! It is very tired and desperately in need of refurbishing. Poor attentive staff, dirty carpets, dilapidated lifts.This list goes on. The location is quite suitable which is its only redeeming feature.

The Thuringerhof is in central Windhoek town. The room was clean and all the basics were provided. A limited TV channel offering and small bathroom. Breakfast very basic and limited choice particularly if you are gluten intolerant. Some staff friendly and some less so. Expensive for what you get but Windhoek is expensive. The standard of this hotel is not... More

We were a group of seven adults who stayed in Protea Hotel Thuringerhof for three nights. We were all very satisfied with the stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff were very helpful and kind. Breakfast was very good. The hotel is very central located.

Reception staff were not helpful at all. All they can understand is charging your card, other than that the answer would be no. They can provide directions, maps, spots to see/eat. It took them 15 mns to check me out! The slowest check out I ever had. Too slow. The room they gave me was tiny and the bathroom was... More

This Protea hotel is very disappointing, it is really looking worse for wear. I don`t recommend any one should stay here, but should rather stay at the other Protea Hotel in Windhoek. The rates are identical by the way. The carpets are worn and faded and there are huge holes in the ceiling, and the rain pours through. This is... More

Booking was made via internet website facility on the official website. Credit card details provided for payment and confirmation was send via mail to confirm booking. Upon arrival the booking was not honoured because the hotel was overbooked. Customer was turned away to find alternative accommodation elsewhere in late afternoon. NOT GOOD !

You must be sure what you want from a hotel before booking it. This hotel, however, has not met any of my expectations. It is located in the city centre and has no character or charm. Just a pavement hotel on a busy road. The rooms are not completely clean, furniture is dated and run-down, room carpet is stained. At... More

Have been visiting Windhoek for about 22 years. First time on budget travel - needing to be close to city center so chose this branded name (now associated with the Marriott group). The experience was mixed from above average service to below par for this brand. Reservation conducted by telephone with central reservations in SA and revised dates dealt with... More

It is a in good location and when we arrived at 11:30PM the hotel was locked, but after a quick knock, they open the door. The check in took about 35 mins and the elevator to the rooms is the size of of a stamp. We got a very small room and we could not move in the room with... More
