We recently stayed at Namib Guesthouse - excellent time we had there! No faults we could find - the staff was helpful - the rooms modern and so comfortable. There is that kind of - I arrived - feeling when you walk into Namib Guesthouse! Would recommend this place anytime and I am certain - we will be back :)

We stayed only one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. The property looks newly renovated and is very smartly decorated. Everything is very clean and functions perfectly. The wifi here was some of the best of our trip. The included breakfast was one of the best as well. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

This is a safe, comfortable and attractive guesthouse in town, but about a 15 minute walk from the main tourist area (so perhaps better for travelers with their own cars). The owner was very pleasant and helpful (she made us advance dinner reservations when I inquired in advance), and her staff was reasonably attentive. Breakfast was quite good, with eggs... More

Such a lovely, well run guesthouse. The rooms and clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast is yummy and the staff are really so happy to help you with arranging things to do in the local area should you need it. My tip is that unless you are on a real shoe string budget, book the deluxe room as the... More

Very friendly german owner and namibian staff. Everything is very clean and the room looked simple but new. Our room was looking to the small patio, so it was a bit noisy and without the curtain closed, people could look into our room, but it was not really a problem as we needed the room just for sleeping. Breakfast was... More

This guesthouse is very nice, very large rooms, nice bed and bathroom, the owner Nicoletta and her staff are very kind, they booked restaurants and trips for us. There is no pool, but this is not necessary because it is located at the sea so it's not so hot here is as in the rest of Namibia. The parking area... More

Beautifull small guesthouse. Personal service by Nicoletta the owner, who made any possible effort to book for us the best tours and restuarants. Rooms decorated with style and a lot of attention to details. Fair prices. Highly recommended!

Beautifully decorated rooms. Very very clean and bright. The whole place looks like it opened yesterday! Nice areas to sit outside. Friendly and helpful staff and owner. Walking distance to town. Would recommend to anyone and would certainly stay again.

I stayed for one night on a quick business trip to Swakopmund. I arrived late, but the someone was waiting with a key and everything was waiting for me - including instructions on how to use the wifi. Breakfast was wonderful and the manager was very accommodating. The room I stayed in had a very high ceiling and was beautifully... More
