Protea Hotel Windhoek Thuringerhof
Ranked #73 of 104 Windhoek B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 21, 2009

Booked the Hotel Thuringer Hof as it was advertised as a 4 star. Definitely was not - see it is now advertised as 3 star. Room clean but no coffee/tea facilities and very stuffy. Booked non-smoking room but were given a smoking room, tried to change but were told hotel was full - we only saw other guests at breakfast otherwise the hotel seemed empty. The road noise made it impossible to sleep for the 4 nights we were there, even with windows closed it made no difference. The restaurant was closed and we had breakfast on 4th floor, lift worked on a part-time basis. Hot buffet was thin bacon and grey looking scrambled eggs otherwise the usual continental breakfast which was ok.

This hotel was selected for us as part of a group tour that started in Windhoek. It certainly doesn't sound like the same place described in a previous review as a boutique property. This is a plain-jane, non-descript hotel, with very little to recommend it other than it puts a roof over your head, the rooms are clean, and the location is fairly handy to downtown Windhoek. The hotel is now managed by the omnipresent (in southern Africa) Protea chain, and while it has been given a fresh coat of paint and a few other token refurbishments, other items, such as the yellowed and cracked enamel of the bath-tub, betray the real age of the hotel. Room amenities were basic, and, comparing notes with others in the group, randomly bestowed. We had a single coffee mug to share for coffee and tea, and no glasses at all, either in the bedroom or the bathroom. Others in the group were more fortunate. No tissues were supplied, and there wasn't even a holder for the toilet-paper in our bathroom. Staff were obliging and friendly however. The water pressure for the shower was nice and strong - ironic in this country which is subject to water shortages. The restaurant which forms part of this property was mediocre at best, featuring lacklustre food re-heated from a tin (or so it seemed), and appalling service. The fact that it was 90% empty suggests that the locals already know this.

We stayed our first night in Windhoek in this hotel. It was an ok experience. It had maybe 15 rooms and a bar/restaurant on the first floor. The location was very convienent for exploring the city. The room was small, but clean with a small TV and a coffee maker (didn't use it). The price included breakfast which was very good and included eggs with sausage and bacon. There was no internet access, but the staff did arrange for taxis for us.

Hotel Thuringer Hof was the perfect choice for my husband and me. We tend to seek out smaller, more intimate or boutique accommodations. Searching the internet produced the popular and recommended hotels, but this was the one that caught my attention. Our room was freshly remodeled, nicely decorated, convenient downtown location and contained a great restaurant. The staff was helpful and friendly with our many requests. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone desiring a deviance from the typical large hotel.
