This property should not be listed. After 4 nights the owner/manager asks me what my room number is. No personal service and nobody there after 18:00. Room 7 does not have cupboard shelves to place you clothes. The hanging cupboard is stuffed with bedding. No place to place your shoes except on floor. Carpets are filthy with spots all over...

We spent two nights here with a group in June. The house was completely unmanned except for our breakfast and check in and out. The rooms were very cold and there was no way to adjust it. Several folks from our group complained about the cold. We wanted a hair drier but since we could not find anybody besides the... More

We stayed here two nights. I was very disappointed about my stay at Central Guesthouse. Of course it is no hotel and doesn't have all the facilities of a hotel , but from a guesthouse you should at least expect to be treated as a guest , however ... When we arrived we got the keys and were told the... More

Stayed here during our stay in Swakop. Rooms are clean and spacious with coffee available outside the room. Only a couple of short blocks to walk and you are in the downtown and coastal area. Nice breakfast. Would highly recommend.

This guesthouse has a pleasant, homely atmosphere and is located not too far from the main street. The rooms are comfortable but compact. There is a nice array of toiletries in the bathroom in pump packs, so much more user friendly than tiny hard plastic bottles. We were on the first floor and the landing was well set up for... More

Stayed here for two nights en route to Brandberg and would recommend. Swakopmund is not big so this is only a couple of minutes walk to centre of town and the sea. Rooms were immaculate and we have a lovely shower. Andrea was very helpful and also did us a packed lunch to take on with us.
