Vertigo Boutique Hotel

Vertigo Boutique Hotel

Vertigo Boutique Hotel is in the quiet Windhoek suburb of Ludwigsdorf, well away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. The area is hilly, the views are great, and any cooling breeze to be had will be felt here. With the seasonal rains the bush is green and lush, and the outlook onto the mountains is breathtaking.

Vertigo is for the traveler who expects the best. It is often used as a luxurious stopover for tourists headed for or returning from safari. Modern design and furnishings distinguish this family-run establishment. Owners Antonio and Maryann showcase their personal art collection and South African wine collection.

Accommodation at Vertigo is in eight air-conditioned rooms of which four are standard rooms and four are suites. The standard rooms are accessed via the garden. Each room is individually decorated and have twin beds, occasional table and chair, hairdryer, fully stocked minibar, tea and coffee facilities, and flat-screen satellite TV. The en-suite bathrooms have large rain-style showers, a sink, and a flush toilet.

The beautiful suites are located on the upper floor of the main building and are all extremely spacious. Large bathrooms include spa baths and steam showers. The Honeymoon Suite is over 1,000 square feet and features a balcony overlooking the city.

A small garden and pool are prime locations for relaxations, and other amenities include complimentary wireless internet access, a personal shuttle service, and a theatre room equipped with the latest technology.

Although most guests make use of Vertigo Boutique Hotel on a bed-and-breakfast basis, it is also perfect for an extended stay. An excellent breakfast is served buffet style with hot and cold food available. There are also many great restaurants in the neighboring suburb of Klein-Windhoek or in the city center where lunch and dinner can be enjoyed.

A bicycle tour in Windhoek's township area allows guests visit the streets of Katutura Township. Departing from King’s Daughters Bicycle Shop (where you will encounter participants in the women’s empowerment project), you will bike to the lively meat market in Single Quarters and get a taste of the famous Kapana. Then on to the bustling commercial center of Soweto Market, before cruising notorious Eveline Street, the street that never sleeps! Finally you arrive at Penduka, where women produce and sell beautiful Namibian handcrafts.

Another tour starts in the center of Windhoek and explores the city’s historical buildings, including the Alte Feste (1892), Christuskirche (1910), Tinten Palast (1913), State House, Windhoek National Museum, and the National Theatre of Namibia.
