Stayed one night here on arrival in Namibia before starting a self-drive tour the next day. Well maintained pleasant rooms, helpful staff, quiet location, secure parking, good breakfast and a nice outdoor seating area with an honesty bar. Joe's Beer House (good recommendation for dinner) and supermarkets are also close by. It's only a small place but it has pretty...

We started and ended our journey through Namibia in the Elegant Guesthouse. The staff is always trying to help : to find a shop, to reserve a table at a restaurant, even to help us clean up the inside of the car. The lady at reception was running the place as if she was the owner. The room was nice...

We spent our first night in Namibia here after 24 hours of travel and it was ideal location to relax a bit, organise ourselves and get ready to move on. Comfortable rooms, lovely breakfast terrace with a nice detail of free coffee/tea and very helpful staff.

Like most people the first time we stayed in Windhoek we opted for a big city centre hotel. I urge you not to, the Elegant guest house has it beaten hands down. It has all the facilities, wifi, TV , that you could ask for. The guest house is a drive out of the centre in Klein Windhoek but it...

Like everyone else who reviews the Elegant Guesthouse, we were starting and ending our self-drive tour of Namibia at this little oasis.

My wife and I stayed at the Elegant Guesthouse in Windhoek at the start of our safari in Namibia. The guesthouse is well-secured and beautiful. The courtyard has a zen garden feel to it and the furniture is very nice in the rooms. The pool is small but clean and it is very relaxing to simply lounge at the poolside....

We stayed here at the start of our trip to Namibia, after a long flight and 2 hours arguing with Avis at the airport.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a quiet street at the heart of one of the city's sleepiest neighborhoods, The Elegant Collection have a fashioned guesthouse which places its architectural and decorative accent on elegance and comfort of the most contemporary kind.The Elegant Guesthouse has a light, breezy and welcoming feel thanks to the open plan design and extensive windows: the single-storied architecture reflects the city's colonial (and recent) past. Clipped green lawns, sparkling pool, impeccably manicured guest rooms and cheerfully attentive staff help ensure that from the moment you arrive you feel a delicious sense of Dulce Domum - even though the wild beauty of the African veld is just miles from your door.The 6 garden and courtyard facing bedrooms are light, functional and imbued with contemporary, angular good looks. They have great mattresses of the firm-yet-pliant variety and these are matched by top-of-the-range bed linen.Expect a full quotient of gadgetry: TV (discreetly tucked away in a cabinet in most rooms), WiFi internet connection, telephone, hairdryer, safe and a hot and cold air-conditioning unit. ... more   less
