Coming out of the desert, what better place to stay than this lovely hotel, with comfortable rooms, good food, and being in a modern town with great amenities. Hard to believe one isn't in Europe. Friendly front desk staff and elegant restaurant.

The Swakopmund Hotel is a beautiful building ( previously a train station) and great hotel. I was very impressed with the front desk staff, who were extremely accommodating and able to answer all of our questions. The rooms were large and clean and there was free room Wi-Fi available. This hotel was actually the only place in Namibia where I... More

The breakfasts were really delicious with lovely fresh fruit and pastries as well as the usual hot choices. The staff were well trained and always friendly. Every morning we set off for... More

As a luxury travel writer for world-adventurer.com I've stayed in many "luxury" properties in Africa. Swakopmund Hotel astounds with its beautiful architecture and classic colonial rooms. Swakopmund is a colonial town, so there are several options to stay in colonial houses, but why not stay in the elaborately designed train station? Here are the highlights: - Building and History: The... More

Fabulous accommodations, standard kings spacious and comfortable. This beautiful old hotel, once a former train station, is a symbol of colonial excellence and the grace of the Namibian people. Every single servic encounter was gracious and helpful to a person, every staff member was there to ensure that your stay was wonderful. The restaurants and cocktail lounges are beautifully appointed... More

After being in the bush for a few days arriving to the "civilisation" of the Swakopmund Hotel was great. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious, clean and well designed. The weather was cold and the rooms were nice and warm. All the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would have preferred a separate shower and no bath but the... More

This was the second business conference to Swakopmund Hotel. Previous visit 10 years ago. It was still as memorable as it was last time. I stayed in room 232 and the view over the pool area was stunning. The hotel restaurant was really good, serving excellent food from breakfast to lunch and dinner. Being quite a remote town I was...

This is a lovely hotel and especially interesting due to its history. Rooms were pleasant and clean and the staff were quite friendly. We ate breakfast and dinner here for two nights and enjoyed all the food. There was a very good choice too. Serving staff were efficient but quite stern although one waitor was very pleasant.
