This is a standard motel style establishment that benefits from its proximity to the central business district of Windhoek. It is clean, functional, has secure parking and an adequate breakfast is included in the price. There is really nothing remarkable about Steiner and the room tariff reflects that. The rooms are just about big enough, the TV service is a standard free to air menu plus limited cable. The internet is available at an hourly rate and is quite efficient around the swimming pool area However, the signal in our room was non existent.
What you cannot deny is, Steiner is an easy stroll to the CBD and compared to other establishments within the same radius of the centre of Windhoek, Steiner presents excellent value for money. If you're on a budget, you can't go wrong here.
Steiner is also within easy walking distance of NICE, the Namibian Institute for Culinary Education, but also one of finest restaurants in Namibia. The restaurant is run by the tertiary students of NICE (see my separate review).
An added bonus of Steiner is that less than 100 metres from the front gate is an excellent fresh food market which boasts a smorgasbord of fresh fruit, nuts and other delicate temptations. A great antidote after weeks on the road on a staple fare of African red meat game cremated on hot coals.
