My husband and I spent two nights at this guesthouse. The fresh fruit salad on the breakfast platter was great and there was a variety of cereals and breads, meats and cheese. A bacon/egg/sausage choice was available and bottomless cups of coffee. Our room was huge with its own kitchenette and lounge area. The unit was spotless and the staff... More

I stayed in a room on ground level near the back. When I opened the door, the unpleasant smell was overpowering--I'm not sure what it was, but it did not go away, even with the door and windows open. The room also had a really odd layout--it felt like staying in someone's basement. That said, the owners were accommodating and... More

Dear Sir, thank you for your response on Trip Advisor. I would like to report back that during the time of your stay we did have some sewerage blockages. Although we called in the experts that cleaned our pipes inside the yard, we found that the smell just would not go away. After a few angry phone calls to the... More

We booked last minute at the guesthouse for a two night stay. The Guesthouse is neat and professionally run by owner Beate. The rooms are large with good mattresses. The bathrooms have a shower with good water pressure. Breakfast buffet has a large selection of cheeses and cold meats. Hot breakfast is served on request at no extra charge. We... More

This guesthouse is a little awkwardly located for persons without a car but if you're in to walking and have cash (no credit cards) it's one of the closest guest houses to downtown that's at a reasonable price. The owners are often absent but the managers in their absence were helpful. Rooms are on the small side and there was... More

The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, and made sure we were happy and comfortable from the get go. The accommodation consisted of a bedroom, kitchen, and living room. It was clean and clearly spacious. Good value. The breakfast spread was varied and hit the spot.

We stayed here four days. The staff are so helpful. We decided that a vehicle was necessary and they checked around and provided useful information that allowed me to get a pickup truck that was just perfect. The city of Windhoek lies within 2 Km and we found it walkable. Closer, is a commercial area with two grocery stores, several... More

My room was very pleasant and with good air conditioning which is rare in this price range. The bathroom was beautifully decorated and the shower was very pleasant. There were some toiletries supplied. Also fresh milk, teabags and a reasonably priced minibar. However it's a shame there wasn't much of a seating area in the room, most places I stayed... More

We stayed at this Guest House on three separate occasions, and it just happened that we had three different hosts All of them extraordinarily pleasant people! The breakfast buffet is very good and well composed for a Western pallet. The rooms are spacious, clean, and with a silent, efficient a/c, and a fridge with drinks. It takes about 20 minutes...

This quiet and impeccably clean B&B is on a back street in a safe and well maintained area of Windhoek and is near shopping and restaurants as well. The staff and owners who manage the place were all very helpful and friendly and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a well priced retreat while visiting Windhoek.

Maison Ambre is a great place to start and/or finish your trip in Namibia. We stayed our first and last night there and were warmly welcomed both times. The rooms are good in size and nicely furnished. We particularly liked the bar and table in the pool area. There is a fridge by the pool filled with beer, ciders and... More
