Casa Piccolo
Ranked #25 of 99 Windhoek B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 August 2012

We stayed there twice a night, the first and the last night of our trip. This little place is very peaceful and the owner was very kind and gave useful advice on where to eat, and she let us store our luggage in her office while we did a last trip into the city before the departure in the evening.
The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. There is also free Wifi.
The rooms can be cold in the winter, but this seem to be normal in Namibia that rooms have no heating (9 out of 10 places had no heating).
The location is good, although you would need a car to get into the center (this takes only like 10 minutes). One of the more famous bars/restaurant Joe's Beer House is also not very far and easy to find. I think this can be easily walked (by car its less than 5 minutes).

We spent our last night in Namibia at Casa Piccolo. The German owner welcomed us pointing at the different rules that hold such as the closing of the gate, etc. The room was ok with two separate beds which we managed to put together. The shower had warm but not hot water and given temperatures it got quite cold (the heater isn't that efficient). However we slept well on good matresses.

In the morning we were waken up by a group of Italian tourists who were directly in fron of our room at the small swimming pool. Breakfast was ok.

The location is slightly outside Windhoek. You need a car to get downtown. Everytine we left the property the alarm would go off and the owner had to call the security service. Before coming home at night we had to call the owner to turn off the alarm.

Internet is available for free at the reception.

We give this place an average ranking as the price of 85€ was reasonably high.

We stayed here at the beginning of March for one night. It was very easy to find coming from the airport.There was plenty of parking our big 4x4. Parking was secure behind an electrically operated gated fence. We received a cordial welcome by the owner. Our room was comfortable and quiet- just the ticket after a 16 hour journey. There was plenty of storage for our luggage and a small selection of drinks in the 'mini-bar'. The rooms had direct access to the courtyard ( no noisy internal corridors)

For our evening meal Claudia recommended a local restaurant (Am Weinberg) which was excellent. Breakfast was both filling and excellent (full English and continental), a superb preparation for our long journey to the Namibian desert!

We enjoyed our stay in Casa Piccolo on our last night in Namibia, before taking a return flight to the UK. Claudia, the most friendly and efficient owner, kindly let us stay pass the usual check out time (10am).

The concept of separate "cottages" works well and there is a peaceful garden with a pool perfect for sunbathing and rest. Rooms are spacious, centrally air-conditioned and well-furnished (fridge, TV, tea facilities). Very good breakfast.

There are good quality towels and a powerful modern shower. Secure parking. It is a short drive to Joe's Beerhouse, a large unusual restaurant that serves large potions of meat-based meals.
