“Truly a wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

This hotel, hidden away in a residential estate on the East side of Windhoek, is a real oasis in the sandy and busy capital. The very quite facility is two houses that have recently been joined together and offers wonderful areas of relaxation, inside and out, a clean and decently-sized swimming pool, a tennis court, a jacuzzi and a very pleasant garden. The rooms are very comfortable, the Wifi works very well, the breakfast is good. Off-street parking is available and the facility is well protected. The employees are very professional, friendly and competent.
This hotel is well worth the price and an ideal place to stay at the beginning and/or end of a trip to Windhoek. At the same, it should not just be considered as a one-nighter hotel, being a great base for one day trips to the surrounding area. The price-performance of this hotel is unbeatable.
Going towards the airport, Grever Street meets with Sam Nujoma Drive. Turn right, towards Windhoek and on the right hand side there are two very good restaurants: Andy’s (v.good Pizzas and German food) and O Pertuga (fantastic fish dishes). Both are good value for the quality of food one receives.

A tip for those that have never driven in Namibia before:
When travelling around, you may travel 50% of the distance on asphalt roads and 50% on gravel tracks, but from a time point of view you spend 80% of your time on the gravel roads. As a tourist you do need a raised, 4 wheel car to get around, ideally with an automatic gearbox and cruise control. These vehicles are more expensive than cars, but it is worth the difference because some places can simply not be reached using normal cars.
Fuel really should be bought when you see it. Letting the tank go under 50% full is not really a good idea, especially when you are not sure of the opening times and days of filling stations which may be 250 km away.
The Namibian roads are empty when you get out of town, especially the gravel roads. On several occasions we drove for over 3 hours and saw only 5 other vehicles. Also be aware that there are long stretches of repetitive landscape and passengers may need other distractions in order to keep them amused.
At some stage of your journey you may well be travelling between Swakopmund and Windhoek. This road is in good asphalted condition and well used. On the journey we took we saw 6 mobile radar traps so beware! Speeding tickets are expensive in Namibia!

STayed there for one night in September . Was quite surprised to find such a "gem' in Windhoek . Totaly exceeded my expectations on quality, comfort and service. The rooms where immaculate and verry comfortable. Definitely my next residence for business in Windhoek.

Room Tip: The suites are a definite must . Parking was a bit of a problem.

I am using this beautiful boutique hotel regularly for staying over and conferences. It is suitable for the serious business traveller and any couple looking for someplace special while they explore the capital city (I haven't seen many children around so I don't know what it is like for families with small children). Easy access and close to major attractions makes this first choice for me. Only serves breakfast but boy is it hearty! They also offer spa services.

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the beds are blissfully comfortable. The grounds are superbly maintained and very peaceful.

The staff were very helpful. Our flight to London didn't leave till late evening but they very kindly allowed us to catch the afternoon sun on the terrace after a morning spent in Windhoek. For an hotel of similar quality in Europe you'd pay at least twice the price.

If the management want to make one little tweak I'd suggest using teapots at breakfast.

Should I return to Windhoek the Belvedere would be my first choice.

When travelling to Windhoek for business it's a pleasure ot stay with Belvedere Boutique hotel. The service is always excellent and the rooms are spacious and warm. The bathrooms are clean and modern, and the rooms are fully functional with plush interiors.

I particularly enjoy the "common" areas of the kitchen, fireplace and dining area which is great for socializing in the evenings. The breakfast is included and one of the best in Windhoek. Always fresh, generous and a wide variety of healthy options. Unfortuntely Belvedere doesn't have a restaurant on site in the evenings, but the staff are always willing to assist in ordering take aways, and they go out of their way to set the table for you.

Belvedere Boutique Hotel is a great hotel and well worth a stay in Windhoek.

Well situated in a good suburb! Felt very safe at all times. Rooms and bathrooms are really nice and pretty well appointed. Great pool on a hit Windhoek day. Very nice breakfast too! All in all, I would definitely stay here again if I was visiting Namibia again!

We love the Belvedere- my company only uses this hotel as it is great value at the price and they really go the extra mile. Service without a fuss, we can not be happier than what we are.

Common areas are great to relax in. They have a large honesty bar and the drinks are very inexpensive. Linnen and rooms are in good shape and breakfast is a very good spread!

Free wifi is a great bonus, but the speed is not always very good
