This is a really nice place in the heart of Swakopmund. You've got everything within walking-distance: the sea, the sights, supermarkets and cafés. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom is decorated in style. The breakfast buffet has everything you can ask for (though you'd better stay away from the sugary water that's disguised as juice). The staff is... More

This was my first time in Swakopmund and we picked a fab little hotel! We were staying in a ground floor room - facing the car park. The room itself was beautiful and the bathroom was really nicely decorated. The hotelier was lovely and very helpful throughout our stay. We had breakfast at the hotel (buffet style) and then went...

I often don't write reviews just because there wasn't anything extra ordinarily special to talk about. But this place impressed me a lot. We booked via booking dot com and got a 35 percent off deal. The receptionist was extremely helpful and kind. He checked us into a double room although we booked twin room but he made sure we... More

The hotel is simple place to stay in swakopmund. The service is friendly and the location is great, you can walk both to the city center as well to the beach. The Internet is a bit of a challenge, and you have to be lucky to be able to connect to the wide world. The showers are nicely designed, the... More

What a lovely experience! Falling asleep to the sound if the waves crashing after a luxurious shower in the room's super trendy refurbished bathroom in the colours of the desert. And the staff are just so lovely! I could have stayed much longer.

This is a basic hotel much loved by tour groups presumably as it offers secure parking for their trucks as opposed to the comfort offered to their participants. The rooms offer very few amenities, no a/c or fans, no safe, no tea and coffee making facilities or toiletries. The rooms vary considerably, the ones overlooking the street with a balcony... More
