Hotel Pension Palmquell
Hotel Pension Palmquell is a reasonably priced B&B in a quiet, upmarket neighbourhood of Namibia's capital city, Windhoek.
Lest you forget Namibia was once a German colony, Palmquell serves to highlight this quirky juxtaposition of Little Germany in Big Africa. Trude, your host, is actually Austrian-born - you can have that hot tip for nothing - and along with a pristine room and a clockwork kitchen you get the full-volume welcome and a genuine Namibian experience.
Situated close to the main shopping malls - you can walk but a quick taxi ride is easier - and not too far from the city centre, Palmquell offers spacious and comfortable accommodation in 16 en suite rooms of varying configurations from single to family size.
The rooms and breakfast room open onto a palm-shaded terrace and a large swimming pool surrounded by loungers and umbrellas. Palmquell has a cosy a la carte restaurant with a fireplace and a typically Namibian menu specialising in venison and seafood with South Africans wines to match and an indulgent nod to the Austrian sweet tooth to round it all off.
