Dear 437angelinel It is always appreciated to hear from each of our Guests. I am glad we were able to meet you expectations. I am also glad that our staff delivered on our promise to each of our Guests. I certainly do hope that you will visit us again. I hope by then we will be in an even greater position to surpass your expectations as we unveil the Stratos which will be our Roof-Top Pool, Bar, Restaurant and Grand-Ball Room. Once again, thank you so much. Hope to have you again soon. Regards TK Nyandoro - Rooms Divisions Manager

Nice hotel in the center of town. Friendly staff and good food. The rooms were exceptionally clean and so were the bathrooms. I would definitely stay here again and recommend the hotel to others visiting Windhoek.

Good situation in center of Windhoek, very good breakfast. Good to be there too if you like gambling. Rooftop was closed during my stay. They also arranged transportation for Airport. Situation is perfect in center of Windhoek with restaurants and bars nearby.

Dear Roam50569543869 Thank you very for the positive review and even more so for having chosen us. We are now in the final stages towards opening the Stratos Roof-Top. We recently completed the hiring of some of the more crucial operating roles and are currently, intensely training and orientating some of the junior TEAM Members who will be involved. The physical aspects concerning that part of the building is also 98% done as much of the activity left is fitting and furnishing. We are still on-course for first week of March 2019 to be our opening day. The Stratos Roof-Top will have the highest situated Glass-Walled Pool-Deck, Bar, Restaurant and Glass Walled Conference Ball-Room in the CBD. We certainly look forward to you joining us. Regards TK Nyandoro - Rooms Divisions Manager

Dear Jet34758223097 It is always such a pleasure welcoming you and hosting and hope to continue to ensure that Avani is home. Most of the renovations are done and we are now excitedly anticipating the completion of final touches of the Stratos Roof-Top. As stated before, we genuinely believe that this will provide us an unique of opportunity to serve our Guests. Regarding the voucher we have re-communicated the on-going promotion believe that this has been resolved. Apologies for the confusion that may have occurred. Thank you very much once again, for the review and you choosing us. Regards TK Nyandoro - Rooms Division Manager

"We were on the 3rd floor, nice views and quiet. Northside."
"316 is adjacent to a staff room which has a heavy door that periodically slams shut in the middle of the night."
"Ask for a room on a higher floor: more quiet and better view !"
"Perhaps on a lower floor so that you can use the stairwells when the lifts are busy."
"Views to the East have the best views."
