Stayed overnight at the Hotel Thule before heading out to Sossusvlei and other parts of Namibia. The friendly, helpful staff and wonderful views of Windhoek make this an attractive place to stay. And the breakfasts with the morning light can't be beat. That being said, without my own vehicle, I felt a little trapped away from the downtown area. A little too far to walk, though it can be done. And at night I was discouraged from going any where by foot. The rooms are large and comfortable and well maintained. I had wrestled with staying in a 'chain' at the brand new Hilton. In retrospect, it probably would have been a better match of comfortable accommodations in a more central location. Definitely liked the Hotel Thule, but for a New Yorker like me who likes to walk and explore, this was a bit more limiting.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Thule was originally a one-time luxury home built by the late Edmund Lafrenz in 1960 as a sumptuous home for himself and his late wife, Liselotte. It was purchased by Windhoek businessman and entrepreneur, Wolfgang Egerer just before the turn of the century, who then reconstructed it into the beautiful up-market 25 bedroom hotel it is today. The outstanding panoramic views over Windhoek are a unique and unparalleled feature of this pearl of Namibia. Hotel Thule offers first class accommodation, quality service, tranquillity and style to ensure customer satisfaction. ... more less
