The Hilton Hotel in Windhoek is probably the best in the area and is conveniently located in the city centre close to shopping malls and restaurants. The location is also very good if driving for the first time in Namibia as you will drive past it once coming into town. The staff is very attentive and polite. The rooms are very clean (it is still fairly new, so lets hope this standard is upheld) and not too bad space wise. I never ate dinner in the restaurant on my previous visit, but walked down the road to a franchise steakhouse instead so cannot comment on the restaurant, although I have had meals here in the past on business meetings and the food was of a good to high standard if somewhat pricey (standard prices for hotel restaurants). While the TV option provided a good selection there were not too many sports channels, this may not be an issue for most travellers, but as I am on business a lot of the time I try to keep up with the Champions League, cricket other live sporting events etc. so a good selection of channels is always appreciated by myself. The only two issue’s I would have with the Hilton is, firstly, the charging of WiFi, the other “luxury” hotel in the area (of a decent standard) the Country Club, does not charge for this at all, this is quite important when travelling on business. The rooms are also not as spacious as the Country Club, but are of a higher standard. Again, as I am on business most of the time the larger space and free WiFi makes the world of difference. I do understand that most hotels charge for WiFi these days, but, most of the other hotels in Windhoek don’t. All in all a very good hotel and I would definitely recommend it, but would take into account the very minor issues noted above.
Finally, the major disappointment with this hotel is the charging of parking! I was actually shocked to be presented with a bill for overnight parking even though I was a guest at the hotel. I can understand this practice in major, congested cities, but this is not the case in Windhoek. This must be rectified by management of the Hilton as it does make you feel like they are trying to squeeze more money out of you!
