We stayed for one night at the start of our Namibian self-drive tour. It appears most of the guests are doing the same thing as like us as by nightfall the car parking area is full of 4x4's ready for the journey the next day. Our room was spotless and comfortable, essential after a long overnight flight to JHB and... More

We arrived at dinner time at the guesthouse. There is no dinner service available at the hotel. We didn't change currency so we couldn't even take a taxi to dinner or order food. The manager could of worked something out with us but he wasn't that helpful. We ended up eating the mini bar! The rooms are very clean and... More

During our three weeks in Namibia this was by far the best place we stayed. Outstanding levels of service, great food and excellent facilities made us wish we could have stayed longer. It's a bit of a bumpy road to get there but it's well worth the effort. Our only complaint was the lack of a door on the bathroom... More

We stayed here at the beginning and end of a tour of Namibia. While it is definitely not luxurious the rooms were comfortable with twin singles pushed together to make a double bed, free wifi and a lovely common area with indoor and outdoor seating. Breakfast was very good with hot options available to be cooked on the spot. The... More

Two women going on a Namibian safari needed a comfortable, secure, clean and mid-range priced place to start & finish their adventure and that's what we got. The staff were extremely helpful with taxis etc -just be aware that no evening meal is provided however there is a fast food dial-out service.

The guesthouse has everything to offer: private secured parking, nicely decorated and equiped rooms, operating wifi connection, wonderful breakfast, friendly staff, easily located next to Joe's Beerhouse. This is the perfect way to start and to end a trip through Namibia.

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
