Lonely Planet review
A pleasant haven located about 30 minutes by foot from the city centre, Roof of Africa has a rustic barnyard feel, offering well-designed rooms of varying price and luxury that attract laid-back travellers looking for a quiet retreat from the city. It’s worth shelling out a few more Namib dollars for the luxury rooms, which come with far more space, sink-in-and-smile beds and modern bathrooms; ask to see a few though, as they do vary.
Our independent authors have visited Roof of Africa Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Windhoek.
