“Definitely Agree "Home away from Home"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

My husband was working out of Swakopmund & we stayed at Deutsches Haus for over 2 weeks. The staff were exceptional & went out of their way to help, organising me some day trips, giving me very helpful local knowledge & even a massage. They organised very early breakfasts for my husband, & lunch packs for his day at work. The meals were wonderful, & the little touches like complimentary sherry & bread was a nice touch. We had just about every menu choice whilst we were there & each one was absolutely delicious, well presented & served top class, & absolutely fabulous value for money. The beds were comfy & the room was kept meticulously clean at all times. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff & they coped well with our Aussie sense of humour & accent. :) The hotel is a short walk from the centre of town & easy to access. Thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here on a visit to Swakopmund.

Room Tip: Room 21 was huge & had a wonderful large bath.

Visiting the west coast of Namibia can never be complete without experiencing the hospitality of Andreas and Cynthia Munkelwitz at Hotel Deutsches Haus. This well known hospitality couple and their friendly and competent staff have refined their offering to suit all the needs of the traveller. What is outstanding is the personal attention given to guests coupled with gourmet cuisine and efficient service. My family and I will definitely return to experience the premium hospitality and personalised service of Hotel Deutsches Haus!

Our family recently visited Namibia and also spent a couple of nights in Swakopmund specifically at the Hotel Deutsches Haus. Thanks you so much Andreas and Cynthia for the great hospitality, excellent service and helpful friendly employees at your hotel. This was truly one of the highlights of our trip. It is my 12 year old son who made the comment that our stay really was a "Home away from home" experience. Keep it up Andreas and Cynthia, you hands-on involvement made our stay uniquely special.

My husband and I recently stayed 5 nights at this hotel. We were put in room 22 and unfortunately had an early riser (before 5am) who made so much noise it was impossible to carry on sleeping. Emmy was very accommodating and moved us to a lovely room and from that point on we had blissful sleep. Only down side of the rooms was the small tv's. Floyd was exceptional in his service and friendliness. Hotel is clean.

I've been staying at the Deutshes Haus since 1991 & must say Andreas & Cynthia have taken the Hotel to another level with a friendly, family atmosphere & service of note, not to mention the real gourmet foods served at their restaurant, all at the most reasonable prices you will find around Swakopmund or even in Namibia.

From Breakfast to lunch and dinner all meals are freshly prepared in traditional German style with European influences where necessary. The service STAFF knows their menu and can advise on a la carte as well as daily specials, they are present when you need them but not in your face.

The rooms are all individually decorated, all amenitities that one would expect and even some more, very neat and the cleanliness all over is impressive.

The owners are very friendly and hands on which show in the smallest details.

I will return and recommend Deutsches Haus to my colleagues and friends and family.

Room Tip: Families should ask for the new rooms
