We were quite pleased when our travel advisor booked us this B&B since the reviews are so great, and it's true the place is very creatively designed, the rooms are huge, the garden is lovely, and the hosts genial. But, perhaps because we were there for two nights as the sole guests and Swakop was in the midst of "an...

We enjoyed a three night stay at Alternative Space and really enjoyed our time here. It has a very relaxed and homely feel about it. Our room was spacious with a comfortable double bed (as it can be cooler quite a lot cooler in Swakopmud blankets, electric blanket and hot water bottles are provided), and a large shower room with...

We really enjoyed staying at the Alternative Space B&B. Our room was huuuuge, with a free standing bath tub in the middle and an amazing shower (no curtains, no walls or anything). The "bedroom" was a circular room with access to a small terrace. Sibylle and Frenus are two great hosts, and we were chatting a lot with them –...

I stayed here for four nights whilst in Swakopmund and absolutely loved it. Frenus and Sibylle are two of the nicest, warmest, friendliest people you could ever wish to meet. By the time you step through the front door you feel less like a guest and more like a member of the family. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the kitchen...

We stayed over at the Alternative Space B&B in Swakopmund and had a ball. The owners are friendly and chatty and will engage with guests and provide recommendations for local activities and places. The wifi works well and the location is pretty central. The room we stayed in was huge and very artfully decorated. One of the most amazing rooms...

My wife and my two kids spent two great nights at the Space, on our way from Damaraland to Sossusvlei. After a few nights camping, it was a treat. The B&B is really unique in it's design, comfy and tastily decorated. Our Hosts, Frenus and Sybille were really friendly and we had nice conversation by the fireplace. And the breakfast...

We stayed here for two nights but we could have stayed longer. Frenus and Sybille were really welcoming and told us everything we needed to know about the place. We put the kettle on straight away and had a nice cup of tea. It is so relaxed and informal. The room we stayed in was brilliant. Loads of space and...

We stayed at the alternative space B&B for 2 nights. What an awesome place! Unique fittings and absolutely stunning! I was a little irked that there was no tv but loved the idea of snuggling up in front of the fire place after popping in one of the dvd's which were on offer. The hosts are uber-friendly and I love...

This B&B is very welcoming and relaxing. Sadly I was ill whilst in Swakopmund and I was so grateful to be staying at Alternative Space where it was relaxed and comfortable. There was sand in our room and bathroom but I guess that's inevitable in this location. We ate at Kucki's in town but were not impressed with either the...
