“Safari Court Decent Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2008

We stayed in Windhoek for a couple of nights at the Safari Court and although its a bit 70's style of south african hotel we were pleasantly surprised, the rooms are very large although the aircon is noisy it worked just adequately, and the bathrooms are quite good apart from the fact they must have got a job lot of Avocado coloured baths and toilets, the bed was fantastic slept like a log which was unusual for me.
The place was spotless and the breakfast was great we ate once in the evening at the restraunt which was quite good also.
The check was OK quite efficient and friendly .
Very close to drive into city centre and amenities.

Stayed February 2008

I found the Safari court a bit strange in that the reception staff were generally very friendly but otherwise the bar staff and restaurant staff were little short of frosty and the maintenance man who came to fix the aircon outright grizzly! Breakfast was o.k. but the service was poor in the restaurant both in the morning and in the evening, though the food on the dinner menu was pretty good. I'd probably try a different hotel on a return visit to Windhoek though for just one or two nights max this hotel is fine.

The Safari is two hotels in one and the guests get to use the facities of both. There are a reasonable selection of restaurants and bars. Food is good and breakfast is excellent. Staff are friendly. Service is laid back. Rooms and general ambience are comfortable if a little dated. Overall this was quite a fun place to stay and was ideal for the conference I attended.

close to eros airport, windhoek's city airport;
traffic, mostly small aircraft starts at 6 am, so be ready for an early wake-up call ;-)
courtesy bus service to city center every 30 minutes and back, until 7 pm, mostly friendly staff, room is ok, clean, some of the furniture seems to have seen better days, good dinner buffet at something like 12 euros - all you can eat style;
hotel mostly frequented by tourists that start/end their namibia tour there

Rooms are dated but big and the setting is nice although not very central. However, the lobby and dining rooms are nice and the staff reasonably helpful.

The only downside was the service at breakfast which was (typically) slow.
