Rivendell is run by nice and helpful people and is locatded in a safe area of Windhoek. Only 10 - 15 minutes walk away from towncenter and the big shoppingmall. Another 10 minutes walk to some of the big sights.

The accommodations were wonderful as we had the unit with air conditioning - perfect for my asthmatic husband. We also had a small kitchenette which allowed us to cook for ourselves on a few occasions. The breakfasts were incredible...

The staff are always welcoming and ready to deal with all queries. There is a kitchen available for guests to use, hot water bottles for the freezing July nights, a...

We were told that the transfer to the airport was free, but on the day we should go to the airport, the service wasn't available and we had to pay for the cab. Bathroom a little bit dirty. The breakfast was very weak. The pool was nice and the water clean.

Had a lovely night here before heading to Swakopmund. Accommodation was roomy, clean and comfortable ans breakfast very tasty. Lovely lady there helped us arrange a taxi and dinner booking at NICE which we would thoroughly recommend too if you are looking for a five star experience before desert hopping :)
