This is a small place located close to the center of Swakopmund and you can basically walk around from this guest house to anywhere around town. The place is big enough to take groups of up to 30 people. The rooms are clean and it is good value for money in Swakopmund. The place has a moderately good breakfast but...

The guesthouse is nice and clean. It's probably more something for backpackers but also good for a two nights stay. They offer no dinner and no bar, but drinks are available at reception. Our room was clean and spacious (no. 27) but there are smaller ones too. WiFi exists around reception.

Small hotel on the outskirts of town 10 minutes from the centre.Rooms basic and breakfasts passable. Staff appear friendly enough but just don't seem that interested in their guests.Arranged a township tour for us which was out of date and frankly rubbish.

I arrived very tired and cold in Swakopmund after a very long day on my bike crossing the Skeleton Coast solo from Ruacana. I was desperately looking for anything better than a campsite and found that. The room was small although more than ample for my needs. The check in went smooth and quick and I could enjoy a hot...

We arrived here after spending the morning in Sossusvlei. It was poorly signposted compared to many other guest houses in Swakopmund. After asking in a restaurant, we finally found our way. There are plenty of rooms. However, this means that a lot of them are occupied by tour groups, which as we later saw, became a problem. The rooms are...

We booked this place last minute as we needed an overnight stay and it was the most affordable spot in the bracket we were looking for. That being said the staff were friendly enough but lacking in polish and motivation. Our room had no hot water on arrival and so we had to shower in our friends room. It was...

My partner booked this place at the last moment as we had little time as I was entered into the Desert Dash Cycle Race and time was short. It was available but not a great choice. It would appear that the staff are not really interested in their guests. The room was ok. Unfortunately they are not interested in the...

This b&b is one of the most reasonable accommodations we have found in Swakop. We have visited a few times in the past and previously always stayed in the rooms around the back which we can now confirm are a little more private. The front rooms do get a lot of traffic though the showers are much better. As a...

We stayed here for a night as a break on a Safari. It was nice to get a rest in a proper bed which was comfortable. The facilities weren't perfect but the breakfast was reasonable albeit a bit chaotic with service when busy. Sadly the wi-fi was poor but hey, I was on holiday! It was easy to walk to...
