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.

After spending the night in the plane from Frankfurt we were happy to find that the rooms were ready for us even at 8.30. That was highly appreciated. The guesthouse is located a short taxi drive from the city centre. You will find restaurants and a small shopping centre in walking distance from it (try Joe's Beerhouse, it is fun...

Elegant Guesthouse was indeed elegant. Our room was smallish but attractive and the bathroom the same. Set in a quiet spot on the other edge of town. It was peaceful and relaxing. The house is bright, open and set around a pretty courtyard with a small water feature. Breakfast was delicious - a real coffee machine, what a treat. Staff...

The Elegant Guesthouse is a very nice guesthouse in Windhoek. The property is lovely and the breakfasts are ample. The rooms are clean and modern albeit a bit small. The only criticism would be that the property is quite far from downtown and is not within easy walking distance to many restaurants or shops.

The guesthouse is very pleasantly appointed. It is not very central or accessible to many things without a car. Unfortunately management had not updated the staff about changes in our travel plans so initially they thought they didn't have our booking and then when they found it our rooms were not ready. I would place the blame for this entirely...

We stayed in this guesthouse for two nights. Both nights on our way to and from airport. We were a family of 3...... The room was way to small for the 3 of us.... An extra matrass was placed on the floor for our daughter, but there was no space left to move. The bathroom was tiny, no bath, just...

It was sadly the end of our Namibian adventure and we elected to stay the night in Windhoek so as to be close to the airport. Well the Elegant Guesthouse was certainly a good choice - easy to find when coming from the north, a petrol station just before you get there (hint - fill up here as you won't...

On first impression this guest house lived up to it's name. Once shown to our room and we started unpacking we realised how small and cramped the bedroom and bathroom was, there really wasn't enough space to put all our things out. It was a double room but the bed was two tired looking single wooden beds pushed together and...

Great little BnB in a peaceful suburb of Windhoek. Stopover on our travels, perfect place to relax after traveling, friendly staff, comfortable rooms and lovely garden. Easy to find from the airport. Highly recommended and we will be back. Thank you all.

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
