At the end of our safari in Namibia in June/July, we will spend 2 nights in Windhoek. I am struggling to find accommodation: I was actually looking for a hotel /guest house centrally located (so that we can walk to all main attractions and restaurants) for no more than 100 euro (120 USD) for a double room, inclusive of breakfast.
I have had a look on the reviews of accomodation on TA and it looks like there are very few hotels downtown (which tend to be very expensive) and few guest houses, most of which do not have great review. Most people tend to recommend to stay a bit outsite, in the quieter areas.
I have never been to Namibia before, and I have a bit clueless.
The reasons why I wanted to stay downtown is because I thought it would be easier (so we could walk to restaurants, etc.) and because I thought that after a couple of week safari we would enjoy spending a few days without a car / using taxis.
But now I have some doubts....
- is it safe to walk downtown in the evening (after dark)?
- would it perhaps be better to stay a bit outside and just take a taki into town?
Any comments, reccomendations and suggestions are very welcome....
