(40 rooms) Independence Av, PO Box 112, Windhoek; tel: 061 226031; fax: 061 232981; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Towards the north end of Independence Avenue, near Bahnhof Street, this is a member of the Namib Sun chain. It is opposite the tourist information office, very close to the national parks booking office and the railway station, and across the road from the main police station. Popular with the German and local markets, it tends to be quite noisy.
Inside, the Thüringer Hof is rather dark and old-fashioned, but the staff are friendly. Its double or twin rooms are clean and functional, if generally unremarkable. All have direct-dial telephones, tea/coffee-making facilities, and TV with Mnet. One attraction of the hotel is its lively beer garden. Here you can order food as well as drinks, and choose from the Thüringer Hof's pub-grub menu, with daily specials around N$32.
If you want to sleep somewhere basic and convenient, the Thüringer Hof might fit the bill. It's mainly used by local business travellers.
