We went on a short trip to Windhoek, this is an excellent place to stay. Situated near to the city center, on one of the hills of Windhoek, calm place with view. Very nice staff. Would choose this hotel again.

A charming little B and B, with stunning views. I had the small house lower down from the main house, and it was perfect. The only thing stopping a 6 star review was the lack of toiletries, the safe was not working - but tiny things against a lovely place and lovely people.

I stayed at the Hilltop for two nights and really enjoyed it - the place is very clean, very well looked-after, has a nice pool for a dip (not for full-on swimming), has 24 hour security and my room was great - tea and coffee facilities, a fridge, a great shower, comfy bed and was very clean. The staff were...

We stayed only one night but were impressed by the quality of the room & the attendance of the staff . Nice homemade breakfast served at your balcony - if you are ok with stairs suggest to ask for top floor as the view to the city is just amazing !

This guesthouse is a perfect base from which to launch a holiday in Namibia. Doubt you'll want to spend too long in Windhoek itself, but very helpful and accommodating staff who addressed our every need. And a great breakfast to boot.

Overall this is a good guesthouse, just a pity about the water restrictions, but that is all over Windhoek at this stage. Positive points: Great view and good service. Negative points: Very dark & dangerous walk way to your room & the room is very small, no place to do paperwork at night.

I had a good time at Hilltop Guest house. Staff members were helpful and kind, place was clean and nice and it has a good view. Pool was also good. Walking distance to famous "joes beer house" and supermarket/drugstore.

The Hilltop is a good and clean Guesthouse to stay. Staff and management are very helpful and friendly. It is located in a very good area and is close to nice restaurants. It was good value for money and well recommended.

Located in a residential neighborhood with a couple of restaurants down the hill within walking distance. The rooms are not fancy, but comfortable enough. Breakfast was served outside your room on the balcony at whatever time you ordered it as long as it was before 8:30 AM. The actual breakfast was good and plentiful. There was hot water in the...
