Everything was clean and in order, but the place is not cosy or nice. Felt a bit cut off, formal and old fashioned - maybe just not the right fit for me or the places I d stay. Impersonal and stiff. No balcony.

Location is a bit off the centre/coast and the direct neighbourhood is not interesting at all. Room is basic, bathroom to small, not suitable for 2 persons to use at the same time. Breakfast and wifi (extreme long login code) oke.

We had booked a double room by a travel agency. Upon arrival, the owner thought we would be more comfortable at the family room, way bigger, with two separate chambers, one for our son and one for us. She exchanged our room with no extra charge. Also, there was a very nice and big bathroom with a bath tub and...

After some of the other accommodation in which we stayed during our two weeks in Namibia, the Central Guest House was a bit disappointing. The room was adequate but quite cold. Staff were noticeable by their absence a lot of the time and when they were there their attitude was quite "take it or leave it". Not the way to...

This property should not be listed. After 4 nights the owner/manager asks me what my room number is. No personal service and nobody there after 18:00. Room 7 does not have cupboard shelves to place you clothes. The hanging cupboard is stuffed with bedding. No place to place your shoes except on floor. Carpets are filthy with spots all over...

We spent two nights here with a group in June. The house was completely unmanned except for our breakfast and check in and out. The rooms were very cold and there was no way to adjust it. Several folks from our group complained about the cold. We wanted a hair drier but since we could not find anybody besides the...

We stayed here two nights. I was very disappointed about my stay at Central Guesthouse. Of course it is no hotel and doesn't have all the facilities of a hotel , but from a guesthouse you should at least expect to be treated as a guest , however ... When we arrived we got the keys and were told the...

Settle in and make your day trips from here. A very comfortable stay and a fabulous breakfast. The staff is on hand to help you with anything and advise you as well! We recommend Garnish Indian restaurant- fabulous food and 20 degrees North for Italian under the stars. You can walk to restaurants, markets and beach. Do book a small...

Stayed here during our stay in Swakop. Rooms are clean and spacious with coffee available outside the room. Only a couple of short blocks to walk and you are in the downtown and coastal area. Nice breakfast. Would highly recommend.
