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.

Overall the rooms were clean, but the carpet was dirty and there was a weird smell in the room. Beds were clean and comfortable. Nice view of the city and very central. Food was good as well.

Avoid until construction is complete
I understand hotels need to be updated, but this was so under construction that it ruined the stay. We were awoken at 6am by the construction starting. We called the front desk and were told they were expecting a lot more calls. They did absolutely nothing about it. Got calls from every department head but never the manager on duty. Poor service at best.
