Hotel Heinitzburg

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Set in a century-old Germanic castle, this grand European-style hotel is perhaps the most elegant luxury hotel in the capital, although some might find the plush furnishings a touch too European on hot African days. Happily, there’s a great pool to cool off in.

Leo’s at The Castle remains one of the best fine-dining restaurants in the capital, while the wine cellar is one of the largest and most beautiful in the country. For something more casual, the terrace café offers wonderful city views.

Surrounding area

Set in an upmarket suburb of the capital – with plenty of embassies and ambassadorial residences nearby – you’re in good, quiet, company on Heinitzburg Street.

Despite its peaceful location, the hotel is just a short drive from some of the city’s main attractions, including the National Botanical Gardens and the upmarket boutiques of Independence Avenue.
