Vondelhof guesthouse is a small hotel and neat little place. Nice looking rooms, neat modern bathroom and a little outdoor patio area.
The breakfast was included which was great. We arrived late on Christmas eve and Yvonne was friendly and showed us around. We also had to make some changes to the reservation and Yvonne and Penny were very accommodating to make the changes we requested. Thanks!
Some things to note:
It was surely hot and the ceiling fan did not do any good. We would have preferred an AC for a peaceful sleep. Also, there was no screen door so we were worried about bugs to leave the patio side door open. Namibia is going though drought, so the guesthouse uses water re-use/recycle methods which at times may be uncomfortable if you are not flexible to such life. It was paid WiFi, but not very expensive. Overall it was a descent stay.

Thank you for your positive review. Although none of the Namibian insects are harmful and it is perfectly safe to leave the patio doors open, screen doors are a good suggestion. I will certainly look into that.

We were informed that the buffet breakfast was included in the price and only after leaving and inspecting the bill did we realize we had been charged for the buffet breakfast plus the charge for the extra eggs we had ordered..

Room Tip: Rooms are rather small and beds are very basic

The continental breakfast buffet is indeed included in the standard room rate. Only for bookkeeping and reporting purposes is it specified on your account. When you add the charges for accommodation, tourism levy and continental breakfast on your invoice, you will find that this adds up to the rate that you were quoted. I apologise for the confusion, but am glad you brought this up so that I can explain and take away the feeling of being 'a little disappointed'.

Clean rooms, friendly people, close to the centre of Windhoek and a great swimmingpool.

The staff made our stay very comfortable and were very helpful with tips, tricks, and booking a nice restaurant in the evening. As we were on honeymoon, the hotel gave us a nice present upon arrival.

If not fully booked Vondelhof is my standard address for a business trip to Windhoek. Strategically located and good value for money.

Only downside is the wifi. I don't mind to pas N$25 per day as long it is working in the room and properly fast. Unfortunately both isn't.
Otherwise you will see me here more often.

Thank you for your feedback. Returning customers is the best advertising we can ask for and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future. We have installed boosters to improve the WiFi, but the speed is not always what we would like it to be. From our side we have invested in the necessary hardware to secure maximum speed, but the service delivery by our provider is unfortunately beyond our control.

The warm welcome to the guest house was just the thing to be comfortable and to relax after a long flight. The room was nice, spacious and very clean. The ideal place to prepare our trip through Namibia and Botswana with the four wheel drive by the pool. The guesthouse has a quiet location just outside the center of Windhoek, but is within easy walking distance. The important long-distance roads are easy to find.
After the four-week trip, the return to the guest house was almost like coming home. I can only say: The Vondelhof guest house is the perfect place to begin and end the trip.
