“Amazing attention to detail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is an absolutely stunning hotel. Gorgeous rooms, beautifully decorated with amazing attention to detail, full of cozy corners for relaxing, stylish decor, delicious and plentiful breakfast, and a lovely 'honesty' bar well-stocked with every drink you could possibly want. I stayed there 2 separate nights on a work trip - on the first night we were lucky enough to be in the luxury rooms as the rest of the hotel was booked - these were massive and amazing! On our return to Windhoek we were in the standard rooms which were smaller but with the same lovely decor and attention to detail. I highly recommend this place either for work or, even better, a romantic stay with a partner.
The reasons why I didn't give 5 stars are...
1. The reception is not always manned which is a problem if you have a question or need help with someone. There were 2 occasions when I had to wander around the hotel grounds looking for a staff member to help me. There needs to be a call button or the person on duty needs to have a pager or something so you can find someone when you need them.
2. The pool was chilly!
3. There is no evening food. We arrived quite late and didn't really want to have to go out again for a full-on dinner but it was the only option. Perhaps a small room-service menu or a link-up with a local delivery service would be good, or even a few more substantial snacks as part of the honesty bar?

THis truly is a unique gem in the midst of the many great hotels in this lovely city ! Hidden behind secluded walls the Belvedere offers superb, stylish rooms with a wonderfully eclectic balance throughout the property's grounds of stylish corners to relax in.. the pool area is wonderfully hidden within the complex and even offers a small putting green. The staff are friendly and quietly efficient.

Room Tip: Each room offers understated luxury and are quiet.

We loved this place, only wish we had a few more days to enjoy the oasis that it is. Great Wines and food. Very comfortable beds and unreal bathrooms. The staff is very helpful and the owner is very nice as well.

I booked in for the week on advice from a friend uncertainly of what I would find on what was a rsther lste arrival (8pm)
Tha airport shuttle kindly arranged by the hotel was as one would expect in Africa, a little fast and in need of a seat belt for reassurance. However on arrival I was warmly greeted and escorted to my room. The layout was explained along with the minibar and tea/coffee station. The TZv had all the overseas news and dport, perfect. All great and the bed was soooooo comphy. Breakfast of fresh fruit with berries to top the yoghurt. A beautiful omelette to follow with genuine coffee from an automatic bean grinding machine. I am spending my second night tonight and loving every minute.

A good place to relax in Windhoek. There were nice touches with coffee machines, honesty bar, cats, and areas to lounge in. The rooms were luxurious. Everyone else who says it's an oasis are right. It was very clean. It was in a quiet area. We did find a good restaurant nearby though didn't really explore the area as we were just passing through. We will go back.

Room Tip: Both luxury and standard rooms were good

Absolutely the best hotel I have stayed in, in Windhoek. For both business and pleasure it's ideal. My only criticism would be that in every area it just doesn't quite hit excellent except value for money.

It is so great to know that small little boutique hotels with extra personalised service still exist.
Even, the day before we arrived we were contacted by Meraai , the manager , to let us know we could check in early if we wished.
This little hotel feels like home form home, the rooms are spacious and luxurious.
In terms of the facilities , you can lounge in the open air lounge and relax with a book and watch the bird life in the garden. There is an honesty bar that is fully stocked with whatever you require. Breakfasts are a real spread , we entertained our daughter and a friend and nothing was too much for Meraai , who personally cooked our breakfast for us.
We will definitely return , forget the HIlton, this is our hotel of preference in Windhoek.
