“Way overpriced!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Extremely overpriced for what you receive. Wifi has to be purchased if you exceed the small allocation provided to you,thus adding to the already expensive room cost. Not ideal for businessmen wanting to do emails.
The food is average and expensive.
The service is not bad at all and the hotel is clean and tidy (which one would expect generally).
Overall average

Stayed May 2014, travelled with friends

We had originally been booked in to the More upmarket Protea Hotel in Windhoek, however on our arrival at reception we were told that we didnt appear on their booking schedule and that they were full !! wow... we stood with the email confirmation in our hands (as for all our Protea hotel confirmations for our trip) and they said sorry but could send us to this hotel. I must say that on arrival at Thuringerhof we where met with friendly helpful faces ! They compensated by offereing us the large family room upstairs at the end. This was a large and comfy two bedroomed suite with all the usual hotel trimmimgs. The room was neat and tidy but was slightly tired but Protea don't claim it to be anything more special so it is therefore a comfortable centrally situated hotel. Breakfast was included, buffet style with simple but expected offereings plus friendly staff - wifi is complementary. Secure lock up parking is provided at the rear of the hotel.

The hotel is very centrally located in town and is in the perfect area but it really needs a good refurb. Walking in sometimes makes you feel you in the late 70s early 80s. There was free wifi which was an added bonus but sometimes signal was intermittend. The rooms are clean and have everything one needs. Its best to get a room at the back of the hotel because there is no double glazing and as a result its very noisy. Breakfast is not a highlight - more needs to be done and offered.

Room Tip: A room at the back

Pros:
1) Very friendly and helpful staff. Hileni and Martha at reception are the stars.
2) Good value rooms at a central location. 5mins walk to La Marmite restaurant (for good Cameroonian Curry!) and Tre supermarket which is the only one that closes late at 10pm. 10mins walk to Wernhill Park Shopping Mall. Opposite the police HQ.
3) Free WiFi although a pain to have to keep re-logging in all the time, especially if using the iPhone.
4) Clean-ish rooms and spotless bathrooms.
5) Good value if booked through an agent or a consolidator.

Cons:
1) Request for rooms that do not face the Indepedence Ave as it's really quite noisy, unless you're a sound sleeper.
2) Very dated interiors, but are currently undergoing refurbishment though I doubt much will change. It needs more than just a paint job.
3) Mediocre but passable breakfast.
4) Vulkan Tours and Transfers' scheduled airport shuttle came 10-15mins earlier than scheduled and as such, missed it completely. Not any fault of the hotel though.

The hotel Is located on the heart of the city. Shopping malls and ministerial blocks at a walkable distance. Nice restaurant and well trained staff. The hotel is old. It might needs some refurbished or facelift.

This met our need for somewhere for a few hours to have a shower and change of clothes and visit a few shops in between the end of a safari and before an overnight flight. But would not want to stay overnight. Small bedroom with inefficient air conditioner and tiny bathroom. decor very old fashioned.

The staff were very curteous and helpful.
However the rooms overlooking Independence Avenue were both noisy from trafic pollution and very warm even with the airconditioning on all night.
The food was average and I would recommend seeking advice to eat outwith of the hotel
Joe's Beerhouse restaurant has a kind of legendary status attached to it and is well worthy of consideration

Room Tip: Ask to be accommodated away from Independence avenue and hope that the air con works
