The hotel itself was lovely, and clean and cozy with all the amenities you need on a trip. The staff was very friendly...

A very comfortable hotel very conveniently located for the centre of town and the Seafront. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, the first time the room was very nice and being at the back very quiet. This time the room was even nicer but being at the front there is quite a lot of noise...

Very nice place to stay. Friendly staff. Parking is the only problem. Doesn't look secure. Would recommend it to any traveller. Town center is near as well as the ocean is in close proximity. Just the best.

We enjoyed two days at Hotel Zum Kaiser - and my wife loved the service with the hot-water bottle in the bed. The kids liked the Hotel as well as it offered the best WiFi connection during our Namibia trip.
