Clean modern guesthouse with great acces to the airport and a short walking distance from te city centre and Nice (a great restaurant). Staff is friendly and helpfull. Although you have to pay for every little service they provide, regarding we stayed 3 nights. We had to pay for a few prints and for the hotel to call a taxi for us to go to Joes Beerhouse. The garden is nice, a bit small, with a small terrace around the pool, which was covered with a filthy cover, which did not look inviting to swim in.

Room Tip: We stayed here two times. Room #5 was great, groundfloor, quiet spacious and cool, no need for an airco. The room was clean and modern, with a nice bathroom. The second time was in room #7 which was on the first floor, with just stairs. It is a lot smaller, hot with only a fan (no airco). The muscuitonet did not function properly, and we got more bitten this one night then all 25 days we stayed in Namibia. But it had a nice terrace (also in the hor sun).

Thank you for your feedback. I would like to comment as follows:
1. You stayed with us twice and I have checked both your invoices and none of them show any telephone charges. And that is correct, as we don't charge for phone calls to the taxi company. That is a service that we happily provide free of charge, just like we don't charge for making restaurant bookings, etc. However, you do need to pay the taxi driver for his services. You were indeed charged for photocopies, but they were not 'a few'; you asked us to re-print the detailed and lengthy itinerary for your entire holiday which you couldn't print at home.
2. As explained during check-in, it is not our decision to have the pool covered, we would also much rather see the sparkling blue water than the cover, but due to the drought we have to adhere to municipal regulations that prescribe that pools must be covered to avoid evaporation. The pool is fully operational and when guests would like to swim, our staff will remove the cover. Afterwards, we unfortunately have to put the cover back on.

Windhoek certainly is underrated in terms of holidays. Like ourselves, most people pass through to Namibias nature. The Vondelhof is a good place to start this and a good place to experience Windhoek, if you have a few days more.

We immediately felt at home when we checked in at Vondelhof Guesthouse by the warmth and friendliness at the reception, repeated when we returned at the end of our tour through Namibia. We just loved the guesthouse, conveniently situated on walking distance near to the town centre of Windhoek. Staff was very helpful We would love to see all of them again. Best wishes for you future.

We spent two nights at Vondelhof at both ends of our visit to Nambia. Rooms are large, clean, shower room is large. Staff is extremely helpful in arranging (external) dinner and transportation. Breakfast offered is continental, nothing really special but just OK!
