Like most people we stayed here for our first and last night in Namibia. Matilda was very welcoming on our arrival and our room was clean and comfortable. There is a small pool which we used on the first day to cool down. The Elegant is not very central and we were unable to go out and see the city centre as we did not have a car to start our trip. We did get a taxi to go to Joe's Beerhouse for a meal and the taxi fare was very reasonable and from a company known by Matilda. The wifi service in the lounge area was very good. The Guesthouse operates an honesty bar which could have been better stocked but adequate for a nightcap. The Guesthouse does have a secure carpark too.
It is an ideal place to stay for 1 night but think I would have rather been more central had I been staying longer. Many thanks to Matilda and staff.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a quiet street at the heart of one of the city's sleepiest neighborhoods, The Elegant Collection have a fashioned guesthouse which places its architectural and decorative accent on elegance and comfort of the most contemporary kind.The Elegant Guesthouse has a light, breezy and welcoming feel thanks to the open plan design and extensive windows: the single-storied architecture reflects the city's colonial (and recent) past. Clipped green lawns, sparkling pool, impeccably manicured guest rooms and cheerfully attentive staff help ensure that from the moment you arrive you feel a delicious sense of Dulce Domum - even though the wild beauty of the African veld is just miles from your door.The 6 garden and courtyard facing bedrooms are light, functional and imbued with contemporary, angular good looks. They have great mattresses of the firm-yet-pliant variety and these are matched by top-of-the-range bed linen.Expect a full quotient of gadgetry: TV (discreetly tucked away in a cabinet in most rooms), WiFi internet connection, telephone, hairdryer, safe and a hot and cold air-conditioning unit. ... more less
