You probably would not want to stay here for more than a couple of days....but it is ideal for a first or last night stay on arrival/departure from Windhoek Airport. We were heading south, so had to drive in to Windhoek - the airport is half an hour or more out of town - so the hotel was en route.
With a map it is reasonably easy to find, and as many have said , it is in the quiet, suburb of Eros. Security is tight, but I must say we never felt threatened anywhere in Namibia. The hotel is ensconced behind a security wall, and your car is safe. You would not come here unless you had transport.
Our welcome was good, and informative. Our room was "modern" and quite small. There was free wifi and cable TV. The public rooms were good in daytime, but a bit drab/under-lit at night.
The pool was small, but sufficient for an overnight stop.
We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel, having just arrived from an overnight flight, we did not fancy driving out again. The meals were all right, but not gourmet (to be fair, I doubt that they claim to be gourmet). My only real niggle was the lighting, which was "drab" rather than "romantic"
