Conveniently located in Walvis Bay. Check in staff slow. My ground floor corner room had a lot of street noise. Room was spacious, but fittings, as well as bathroom outfitting were worn. Restaurant lunch had limited availability, but food wasn't bad

This hotel is clean with Large rooms. Although in the city centre it not too loud and offers a free parking. Nearby some gas stations and shop so you can use the fridge. Breakfast is ok. Hotel is old and you see that with a loud fridge and the flooring and overall condition. Small restaurant we only had breakfast.

Being back in Walvis Bay, I booked this hotel again, since as mentioned in my previous report… there are not many places to stay in this town with a decent quality. Almost 2 years since my last stay, and NOTHING has changed. Still a clean hotel, with really friendly staff… right in the center of town. The hotel restaurant is...

The room is in need of a renovation as the old carpets, old bedding and couch that has broken springs so that you "sink in" at a 45 degree angle can be sorted out. It is right in the middle of the town with a view of the shops, a main road and not much else. You can see the...

This was my first visit to Walvis Bay, therefore I have no comparison with other local accommodation. I had a one bedroom suite for 8 nights which was comfortable enough. The lighting in the living room was very harsh. a table or standard lamp would have made the space more comfortable. This is especially so as the hotel bar /...

Quiet, clean and suite had ample space. Breakfast was always crowded and haphazard (festive period). Shops and restaurants were within short walk. Reception took time to notify us of fees and imminent change at top of year, which I quite appreciated.

Extremely nice place to stay in the very beautiful city Walvis bay. The rooms are very comfortable with nice views from the window. Nice weather in Walvis Bay, though a bit cold sometimes. The people in the town are also nice people. Big desert dunes for recreation and sight seeing.
