From the moment you enter this charming pension, you feel welcome and at home. Although a very basic unpretentious affordable one star establishment, the clean straightforward rooms are ideally suited for easy going people that just need to chill and then explore the charming town of Swakopmund. The location is excellent and one does not need a car, as everything... More

Nice pension along the Swakopmund coastline. German management and run in a German way. Feels like being on the German ‘Sylt’ isle a bit. Good and complete breakfast. Rooms are basic and sufficient as you will see more often in pensions in a beach area. Sufficient but not sparkling. We had two nice rooms with beach view on the front... More

From the time we checked in go breakfast the day we left it was not so great. Although the location is very convenient (near many restaurants and shops) and the price per night fair, the service is among the worst I've ever encountered. We arrived around 7 PM from soussusvlei (so, not extremely late by any standards) and a guard... More

This is very good value B&B, clean and welcoming, with an excellent breakfast. It is in a very good location by the sea and close to the centre of town. It is not pretentious or luxurious but entirely straightforward.

We spent one day & night at Rapmund hotel and were glad we chose this place. Here are the things we liked about the place: Room (#1) was spacious, clean, had three beds and was quiet to permit enjoying a good night's sleep. There was plenty closet space and comfortable seating. There were tables in different places outside allowing one... More

The hotel is located at walking distance from the main areas that offer shopping, dining, etc. The beach is also in close proximity. We stayed in a sea view room, very comfortable, spacious and tidy. Breakfast was basic, yet really nice. The staff were quite friendly.
