      The room was spacious; clean but TV reception was very poor. The restaurant decorum is dull and not bright; breakfast food in the pots not good... very cold. The Chef's uniform not presentable; One Chef serving many guests why?

      Not a four Star Hotel

      I chose the trip based upon the location, the swimming pool advertised and the additional perk of the NAD 200 food credit. The location was great and the bar service was lovely. After that - not so much. The food was just okay. There was no remote in my room -so I tried to call early enough in the time to get it fixed no one answered at reception for 30 minutes. When I did finally get help, the maintenance person noted the TV was not working because of missing cable. The maintenance person said they would return and if he couldn't find the cable would arrange for me to change rooms. So I stayed up waiting for an additional hour before I realized no cable was coming and at that point it was 10:30 pm and I had to be up at 6am. The pool facility was not really a pool. It is more of a soaking pool in middle of a bar deck where noone would really want to swim. As far as the credit hotels.com confirmed with them and then when it came to check out - there was no acknowledgement that they were going to honor the credit. I asked for specific things at check out when it came to providing the rate in USD - which they kept saying they just used the rate for the day. When I asked if they could do that- he said no. I just felt that while there are a lot of groups checking in on the property - because I was by myself I really wasn't a priority.

      Treated like you're not welcome

      Check in process slow, they couldn't find my reservation. Once found, more delays, and denial that my room included a 200 NAD food/beverage credit. Rooftop bar a locals only joint, it seems, as it took me forever to order a beer. Thought I'd use the credit for a room service breakfast but my order remained hung on the door when I opened it the next morning. In a rush to get to the airport, had a quick 200 NAD breakfast at the restaurant (The Pantry?) Breakfast was good but sitting in my cab, getting ready to leave, I was accosted by a front desk employee, accusing me of not paying my bill. Americans: stay at the Hilton!

      Nice Hotel in Downtown Windhoek

      We had a good time staying at the Avani Hotel right in Downtown Windhoek. The location is perfect for exploring restaurants and souvenir shops in Downtown Windhoek. Concierge service was very good, helpful, friendly and professional. The hotel has been recently renovated and has a fresh feel. The room was spacious and ad a good view of he city. However there was a stained section on the carpet that should be removed. The breakfast buffet was very good and had many options. The Sky Roof bar and restaurant were also really nice with a great view of the city skyline. The Sky roof pool is nice decoration while enjoying a meal or a drink but is not really convenient for swimming as it is too close to the bar. Overall, We had a great time staying in at the Avani in downtown Windhoek.
