We did a one night stopover in Windhoek and it was our first visit to Etambi. What a surprise! Our host Theresa's friendliness and helpfulness was a highlight after a long drive. After a couple of days of camping the stay at Etambi was a highlight for all 3 families traveling together. In future we won't look any further than... More

We stayed at this establishment for one night only & it was not a good one. The room is spacious & neat but the supper & breakfast very disappointing. If you don't book for supper at the guest house early morning be prepared to run around the mulberry bush in Windhoek for a restaurant. Breakfast was a disappointment as well.... More

We found the service at Etambi to be excellent. Therese (the owner) gave us a very warm welcome and takes pride in her little guest house, employing what appears to be a full time gardener to keep the gardens looking clean and tidy. Breakfast was more than adequate with the girls making sure we had everything we needed. We had... More

One gets a lot better facilities by paying a bit more at Casa Blanca Pension just next door to Pension Etambi. Having stayed at both places for couple of weeks, my advice - just move to Casa. However if Casa is full, it won't harm staying at Etambi for couple of nights. Issues - A. no dining facilities (every night... More

I booked this because I was using Advance Car Hire and because of this connection I thought it would be handy. Turned out the Car Hire place is on other side of town - not that handy. But in any case: rooms are reasonable for the money. Air con works and clean. Attitude of staff not so good. Check-in lady... More

My 1 night stay was booked through my car hire, otherwise I would have probably booked elsewhere. The rate was cheap but that was reflected in the rooms which had a very tired décor. The bath was stained from a dripping tap, the front door would "stick" and not open properly without a shove. When stepping out of the room... More

Windhoek has a mixed reputation when it comes to the security of its guests. First sight of the Etambi confirms that the management are dedicated to keeping their customers safe. Excellent security precautions surround both the buildings and their good sized parking lot. Reception is pleasant and efficient. Help and advice are willingly given, proving to be very accurate no... More

For us this was pretty much the only place in Windhoek that had availability for the night we needed. It's out of the way but Windhoek is pretty small so that's not really a problem if you have a car. Our room was a decent size and the bed was very comfortable. Linen was new enough and of good quality.... More

Private safe parking, comfortable rooms, nice small garden with bar. Breakfast is ok with a small buffet and a choice of hot dishes prepared at the moment. Petrol station and market not far. Free wifi. Nice staff. Good solution for one night before your trip.
