Very nice, esp for the expense

Just used it for a stop-over but it had a very nice buffet, lovely new rooms, helpful staff and a free shuttle to the airport.

Awesome Experience

Right next to airport with a great shuttle service 5 min to hotel. Staff was very helpful and food was amazing at a great value. Room was a little over $100 USD and would have had to pay about $250 in the U.S.

Great stopover with personality

Room: Good side - It was Clean, tidy, modern and comfortable. Also the functional windows are a rare treat in a hotel. Bad/odd side - The bathroom shower is open to the bedroom so there's not much privacy or control over breezes/keeping warm in the shower. Also you can hear airplanes take off so if it bothers you, seek a room away from the tarmac. Staff: Overall, the hotel staff was excellent; super friendly and helpful. Amenities: The interior foyer/bar space has character; sort of a mix of an airport hanger and a modern/industrial style brick steak house. The restaurant had tasty and fresh food, though a bit on the pricey side. The gym was a great spot to get a bit of a sweat. Fairly good facility with functional equipment (2 treadmills, 2 bikes/cardio machines, a rower) and weights. Also the outdoor space by the pool was a mini oasis just beyond the highway and airport bustle. Location: IF you want to be close to the airport for a quick and comfy overnight stay for an early flight, it's a great spot. Take advantage of the free airport shuttle. If you need to go to the airport at an odd hour they will arrange a special one for you.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

For hotel shuttles: Ignore the people who want to help you with your bags when you arrive at the airport. Go straight out the main exit to the tax/transit area, taking the covered walkway across the street and continuing straight on the path that is to the left of the Intercontinental Hotel, into a small waiting space where the hotel shuttles come do pick ups.

Met my expectations.

Very well located, clean and comfortable. The only weak points was the 62 minutes waiting for room service and free internet access is just for 100mb (which means nothing).

Quite all right for a transit hotel

Interesting decor -- warehouse - safari cargo look - quite stark. Comfortable room, good internet access. Decent food at the hotel restaurant, though service left something to be desired. Easy to get to through regular shuttle service from the airport. A good deal for a transit hotel, but I wouldn't want to stay there more than a night or two.

Lovely room, POOR internet

I am not traveling as a tourist. I have a computer, cellphone, and other essential items that need charging and there is only ONE outlet in the room in an inconvenient place. Internet is free, but requires an enormous, arcane username and password that have to be typed in every time you go to use it! That's absurd. The internet is so slow it's scarcely worth the time. Room is very striking and bed was superbly comfortable. Fabulous spread for breakfast. But bottom line for me is good outlets, lots of them, and free, easily accessible and fast internet. If you're serious about those things, go elsewhere.

Outstanding Hotel, Near Airport

Far exceeded my expectations. Shuttle buses are straight out the front door of airport, past the Intercontinental Hotel. Quick trip to Protea. Really cool ambience -- aviation theme. Even have yellow oxygen mask in the bathroom (it's a joke -- and when you see it, it's funny). Totally clean. New amenities. Quiet. Service was superb. Room service dinner was delicious. Breakfast was top-notch.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

When you leave the airport front doors, walk like you're going to the (way too expensive) Intercontinental Hotel, but to the left of the building. There's another building where you wait for the shuttle bus to the Protea. It's not a problem, but it helps if you know the drill.

Great Hotel Great Location

Stayed one night on my way to Walvis Bay and then Swakopmund. Hotel is within sight of the airport. Except for the shower in the bedroom, it was just like a hotel room in the US
