We flew in early from Frankfurt to Windhoek and easily got a taxi to Hotel Pension Moni which was just beautiful. It felt as if we were miles away from the centre of Windhoek and although it is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, it's only about 15 mins. walk into the city centre. Also there is a big shopping centre up the road about 10 mins.walk. On arrival we were checked in quickly and easily to our room which was ready and waiting for us, by Hendrick, a very friendly young guy who had lots of tips for us and suggestions of what to do, where to go etc. . The hotel is more of a guesthouse with each room looking out onto the courtyard or the pool area with the cool hippo. It is quiet and very secure with a pedestrian gate and "buzz in" only vehicle entrance. The rooms are immaculately clean with lovely beds, linen, towels, spacious ensuite,TV, small fridge, fan (and AC if I remember correctly). Breakfast was healthy and fresh- juices, tea/coffee, cereals, hot breakfast, yogurt, fruits etc. They also had a PC with internet connection available for use, though it was a little slow. As first-timers in Africa, it was a great start and we returned to Pension Moni secondly after going on a tour for a few days. A little more at the upper end for budgeters but well worth a visit...ten out ot ten.
