Ideally located at about 30 minutes from the international airport, overlooking Windhoek, this is the perfect spot at the start or end of your tour in Namibia. After 3 weeks traveling through lovely Namibia we spend 1 night at this lovely hotel preparing ourselves for a long flight back. This is a great hotel with all you are looking for...

This hotel, situated above the town, has a gorgeous terrace. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Really lovely. BUT be warned: don't eat here. This might have been the worst "upscale" (read faux gourmet) meal we've ever had. Impossible to eat.

Located centrally, this hotel offers a nice setting and nice views on the city. Although the outside building looks a bit like a little “manor”, one should not expect much luxury or cosy feeling inside. The room we got (located on the ground floor near the reception area) was decorated very simply with old and rather cheap looking furniture. The...

Originally I tried to book into a boutique hotel in Windhoek but after a long series of flights we really appreciated arriving at this comfortable, competent hotel. It probably isn't the equivalent of other Relais&Chateaux outside of Namibia but neither is it too stuffy too cope with two teenagers, worn out after 24 hours travelling. We found the hotel and...

This was our upteenth trip to Africa...but our first to Namibia. Our first night stay was at Hotel Heinitzburg....and the accomodations were exceptional. Count von Schweriin commissioned the castle for his fiance Margareth in 2014. As the legend says...love was his inspiration and elegance his achievement. And it still holds today. Gracious host...and dining supreme...with an VERY exceptional wine cellar....

After a long trip from the UK via Johannesburg, by the time we reached Windhoek we were weary but the warmth of our reception including a glass of fizz brought to our room which we took to the sundowner terrace dragged us back to life. Perched high up above the Namibian capital with great views, the outdoor terrace provided a...

Visits 5 and 6 to this hotel confirmed my earlier reviews: Good location, perfect terrasse for a sundowner and an ok restaurant, but very cold rooms in wintertime! Room 14 could not be heated with the airconditioner, room 13 which I got for the second night could be heated with the aircon. But the bathroom stayed cold! The restaurant is...

We stayed at the beginning and at the end of our self-driving tour at the Heinitzburg. This beautiful hotel combines the historical building of 1914 with elegant furniture and modern comfort. We stayed in two different rooms and each of it was cosy, with comfortable beds and a spacious shower. Before you go to bed one of the “angels” remake...

We booked into the Heinitzburg for two nights at the start of our holiday. After a long flight it was the ideal place to relax. The setting is beautiful - especially the views over Windhoek. The hotel has all the amenities you would expect from a hotel of its class. We ate both nights in the restaurant and we were...

We just returned from a 4 night stay here and fell in love with it. It is very nice! The castle has a very nice patio for enjoying wine as well as sitting out for breakfast. The rooms are very nice and the pool area was quite enjoyable and relaxing. Eat at Leo's, it's terrific!
