“Just adequate”
Reviewed 25 September 2008

This hotel was selected for us as part of a group tour that started in Windhoek. It certainly doesn't sound like the same place described in a previous review as a boutique property. This is a plain-jane, non-descript hotel, with very little to recommend it other than it puts a roof over your head, the rooms are clean, and the location is fairly handy to downtown Windhoek. The hotel is now managed by the omnipresent (in southern Africa) Protea chain, and while it has been given a fresh coat of paint and a few other token refurbishments, other items, such as the yellowed and cracked enamel of the bath-tub, betray the real age of the hotel. Room amenities were basic, and, comparing notes with others in the group, randomly bestowed. We had a single coffee mug to share for coffee and tea, and no glasses at all, either in the bedroom or the bathroom. Others in the group were more fortunate. No tissues were supplied, and there wasn't even a holder for the toilet-paper in our bathroom. Staff were obliging and friendly however. The water pressure for the shower was nice and strong - ironic in this country which is subject to water shortages. The restaurant which forms part of this property was mediocre at best, featuring lacklustre food re-heated from a tin (or so it seemed), and appalling service. The fact that it was 90% empty suggests that the locals already know this.

We stayed our first night in Windhoek in this hotel. It was an ok experience. It had maybe 15 rooms and a bar/restaurant on the first floor. The location was very convienent for exploring the city. The room was small, but clean with a small TV and a coffee maker (didn't use it). The price included breakfast which was very good and included eggs with sausage and bacon. There was no internet access, but the staff did arrange for taxis for us.

Reviewed 7 June 2007

Hotel Thuringer Hof was the perfect choice for my husband and me. We tend to seek out smaller, more intimate or boutique accommodations. Searching the internet produced the popular and recommended hotels, but this was the one that caught my attention. Our room was freshly remodeled, nicely decorated, convenient downtown location and contained a great restaurant. The staff was helpful and friendly with our many requests. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone desiring a deviance from the typical large hotel.

  • Liked — Intimate size, great location, good food, helpful staff, new room/decor
  • Disliked — no complaints at all
