Needed a place to spend a night on the way to Windhoek. Drove around Okahandja looking for a suitable place and found this gem. Very comfortable and clean. Left early in the morning and the breakfast box packed was a real treat!! Really good value for money.

Stayed here before a flight from Windhoek as It seemed an ideal location fairly close to Windhoek an excellent choice if you want to escape the hustle of the capital. The owners made me feel almost a part of the family and are very relaxed and freindly. The rooms are more like free standing studio apartments and are not attached...

If you don't want to mess around with staying in Windhoek on your travels north, Sylvanette is a wonderful place to stay for a night.

We are so glad we stayed at Sylvanette. The room was spacious and even had a kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and the shower excellent. The price was very reasonable. The breakfast was cereals, fruit, yoghurt, bacon, eggs, juice and toast. Just what we needed to start our day! The wifi worked well. Flip, the owner, was very friendly and...

I am a regular guest at Sylvanette Guesthouse, and this is my favorite place to stay. Located in the heart of Okahandja, you cannot help but fall in love with the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly owners and staff. If you look hard enough you can find flaws anywhere, but that will certainly never succeed in filling the void that...

It was the most horrible experience I have ever had. What was advertised on the internet and what you got was totally the opposite. The rooms were dark and dingy, because only half the lights worked. The kitchen that was offered for our cooking if needed, was filthy. The fridge was rotten inside, the stove covered with dust and dirt....
