Our group from New Zealand spent one night at this hotel. We found it very good, with comfortable rooms and all services. The meals were excellent. It is well situated, within a few minutes walk from the shopping streets and the waterfront. It is an interesting city, with its German and South African history apparent in the architecture.

My wife and I stayed the standard two nights and loved every minute of it. Service was great, rooms were clean and well appointed and the food in the restaurant was good with lots of variety. Most importantly, this was the first hotel in Namibia where we found the wifi to be fast and reliable. Highly recommend.

Here two nites as part of a tour. Nice facility, rooms a little dated, buffet meals OK. Pretty hotel-standard. Save your laundry to have done here if you are on the go-rates are most reasonable. Staff was friendly, and the facility has an interesting background-it was once a train station. Recommended.

We stayed two nights at this hotel which was a train station during colonial times. The building is interesting and the atmosphere is formal. I would not say it was charming; but it has character. Our room was large enough, clean enough and the bath facilities good enough. The wifi worked fine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The... More

A two night stopover from travelling was a rest indeed. The hotel is a converted railway station and has improved on the charm that its' earlier existence might have had. Good food and clean well appointed rooms are all that one could ask for. A rather pushy porter tended to dull the initial pleasure a little.

In the middle of our tour of Namibia we spent 2 nights at the Swakopmund Hotel. My room was large, clean and very comfortable. The hotel which was originally a railway station had a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast was sumptuous. Service was great and I would happily have stayed longer! The location was good too, walking distance to the town centre.

The hotel itself is nicely designed with a big, beautiful inner courtyard. However, it has seen quite some years pass by and some of the facilities are not well maintained. The toilette in our room was broken for instance. We told the hotel staff but they did not seem to care much. The room was alright, maybe a little less... More

I think that, years ago this used to be The Railway Hotel and is built in proud German Colonial Style around a generous courtyard. Front desk staff not particularly clued up. Our luggage took over an hour to get from reception to our room. Actually I carried one of the cases up to our first floor room. Pleasant, but nothing... More

Was here for two nights attending part of conference. Hotel showed age but rooms were adequate and comfortable considering. Very few guests in hotel so staff was lean. Difficult to find entrance to meal area and routed around building to side rather than from courtyard. Food okay Good location and walking to local shops and beach is close. Am not... More
