Villa Verdi Guesthouse
Ranked #65 of 101 Windhoek B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 November 2011

After reading the traveller broschure and seeing the great pictures, we decided to stay the last night from our trip in this guesthouse. The property and the rooms are really great and clean. The restaurant is not in use anymore, we did not understand why! We thought it's just a pitty to see how the employees walk around demotivated and we felt like staying in a "ghost house". Around Namibia it was all over like feeling at home. Why could the staff from Villa Verdi not be like the others?

Room Tip: We had the room 9. It was a nice and big, but to the street side.

After reading the latest reviews about this hotel we decided to use it the first and the last night of our self-drive safari in Namibia. I have to say that our expectations were not met at all and it is a pity because the place has an immense potential.
The pros: Excellent location, huge rooms, parking and nice gardens.
The cons: The place looks abandoned, you have the feeling that nobody cares about you and your needs, the rooms look dirty, no restaurant (it is closed since quite some time).
My advise is that If you plan to stay more than one night you should look for another place.

This was my second stay at Villa Verdi. As before the guesthouse is of excellent quality at a very central location. Rooms are huge and well maintained. Lovelly gardens which provide a secluded feel. Only downside is they only serve breakfast but have good bar facilities at a fraction of what you would pay at a hotel. BEWARE of the mini bar prices. Otherwise great guesthouse for business and tourists alike.

This was a terrible stay. On the LeadingLodges website, it looks glorious and they talk about the wonderful restaurant -- oh, by the way, that restaurant is closed now [even though the signs are still up]. No security; no one to open the gates to let us in or out; no soap or amenities in the room; tiny beds; not clear [but the spiders like it that way].
Nice people and good breakfast, but the place is NOT what was advertised!

Room Tip: Don't use Leading Lodges

We made a reservation to spend the last night of our holidays at the Villa Verdi. Upon our arrival, we were told that when making the reservation, we had been talking to the wrong person and that no valid reservation had ever been made. Good luck to anyone who wants to stay at this place!

What a difference! We came here three years ago and even though the rooms were a bit tired and old, it was still a very charming guesthouse.
Now, after coming back we were totally surprised!

The rooms have been renovated and look beautiful, very spacious, very modern but still very charming, a restaurant has been built in the front of the guesthouse, a nice lounge area is at the pool. A pleasant surprise!!!

I was a bit worried about staying here after reading earlier reviews but the guesthouse hs obviously undergone some changes and the rooms were clean and tidy, we did not have any security issues, evening meal was good value, but the breakfast could have been better. However, I feel it is a bit overpriced compared to other alternatives.
