We stayed here for one night as were were connecting to a flight in the morning. The rooms were clean, air con decent and it was perfectly sufficient for somewhere to stay for a night (or 2 if have a packed itinerary). The lack of amenities means you wouldn't want to stat here for an extended period of time. The... More

Very upscale guest house with secure parking in a nice quiet location. After arriving late at night I found the room perfect to get cleaned up from my travels and relax with a beer. Friendly and helpful staff.

The building is modern, elegant and clean, set in a pleasant garden, with secure parking (vital in Windhoek). Our bedroom was OK but quite small,... More

After a very long series of international flights we were relieved to arrive at the Elegant Guesthouse for some rest. It's approx 35 minute journey from the International Airport to the north-east of the city centre, and we found it no problem at all.

Are first night in Namibia was at The Elegant Guest House. It is as our literature said in a quiet secure area. It is modern and relaxed.

We had arranged a self drive holiday in Namibia and stayed at this perfect guesthouse on our first and last nights. It is quite small, only about half a dozen rooms, but perfectly equipped. And calm. Also secure. We were recommended by the Reception to take a taxi to a nearby restaurant, and the taxi was booked for our return,... More

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
