“Great views, pathetic service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

The bottom line is, unfortunately, visit to look around to enjoy the views, sunsets, sunrise, the nightview - but otherwise, avoid :(

“Awesome sunsets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

At the top of the HIlton Hotel is the Sky Bar which overlooks Windhoek (Namibia). Sip a cocktail or three as the sunsets over the city and distant hills. Worth a visit.

“Up in the sky on a balmy windy evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

The view is amazing. The service is good - we went up there for sundowners and got everything: perfect lighting, superb view of the Christus Kirche, Alte Feste, IMM and the Supreme court with its hugging arms, on the eastern side. A glorious view down Independence Avenue on the northern side and west facing the sun the Khomas Hochland. Prices not really affordable for Namibians, unfortunately. But worth the view for one drink.

“Fantastic view and good drinks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Excellent view of the city and a good cocktail and drinks menu! Friendly bar staff and drinks are expensive by Windhoek standards as another reviewer mentioned but you do get what you pay for with a very high standard of service and an unbeatable view!
