It may be right to put into 3-star accommodation to this hotel but my personal experinece should rate the hotel below average. My tour guide recommended several hotels in Swakopmund before we left to Sossusvlei. I picked this hotel because it's near the ocean and the downtown as well. Now the problem started. I had made a reservation for two consecutive nights instead of two seperate nights with a no stay between them. I asked my special request through the booking portal and made an international call to the hotel to say what I wanted. The lady said they were fully booked on our second stay but she thought it would be OK to keep it as it is because there's always been some cancellations. When I arrived the hotel I was told that my request was accepted and there would be no problem at all.. Good. When I returned from Sossusvlei tour next day, however, the receptionist told me that the hotel was fully booked and no rooms available for us and told me that I had been charged for two nights of accommodation already. We had to wait long with frustration before they comprehend their internal miscommunication and refund our second night payment and trnasfer to the nearby hotel. Cann't say it a good management. Hotel is basic, spartan. The so called partial sea view means you can see the sea when you go out to the balcony. The breakfast was mediocre might be due to a big group of German tourists.

The location of A la Mer could not be better, just a block from the pier. The room was a nice size and lacked for nothing. The staff were helpful and the breakfast spread was fantastic. I omnly stayed for one night, I would have loved to stay longer and explore this lovely town.

The hotel is in a good location but rooms are very basic. Ours was small, cold and damp. The floor was roughly finished concrete with no covering. However breakfast was good and the staff helpful and friendly.

We stayed here in the excecutive suite for one night. The room offered a nice view of the sunset over the ocean. It was also very clean and spacious. Its close to the town center and beach. Its perfect for a one night stay in Swakopmund.

This hotel is a moder and nice hotel. We stayed in the new part an it was good. Some of the rooms is overlooking the ocean, we had also a balcony. Free Wi-Fi all over the premises and free garage is available. Good breakfast. One plus is that it a short walking distance to several restaurants and especially The Tub.

I stayed here recently for 2 nights. The rooms are a good size and have safe but no air conditioning (not needed while I was there). The breakfast is excellent with lots of options. The hotel is in a good location. Staff are friendly and helpful.

The hotel is situated just a minute walk from the beach. If you book a room with a view towards the beach, you will certainly not be sorry. We had a nice experience here thanks to the overall spacious rooms, very friendly and wonderfully helpful team and the fact that it was so nicely positioned. The breakfast felt somehow like being in the 90s, with chairs, tables and overall ambiance, but it was totally enjoyable. Probably the biggest asset (next to the tidy, spacious rooms) was the super friendly team. They arranged for us transfers, PCR tests, helped us with organising activities. Just the proper level of helpfulness. In conclusion, we had a very good stay which contributed to the overall positive experience of discovering Swakopmund and the area.

We stayed here for only one night, and we wish we had done more. The hotel is extremely well located, just feet away from the waterfront and within walking distance of the city's major sites and restaurant. The room was very comfortable and stylish. We had a balcony the looked toward the waterfront, which was a nice place to sit and relax. We also appreciated the outdoor spaces in the hotel (the rooftop patio was particularly lovely). The breakfast was delicious with many options for food. The parking was also great, and we appreciated that some spots had outlets where we could plug in our car's refrigerator overnight. All in all, an excellent spot to base yourself from while in Swakopmund.

This place is very well located to explore Swakopmund by foot. We left the car all time at the secure parking in the patio. Our room was recently renovated and refurbished with taste. Also the bathroom was very nice with a large shower and very hot water. Due to lockdown we could not eat at restaurants. For dinner we got take away from close by restaurants and could eat it on the tables and chairs in the patio.

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in room 4 overlooking the jetty and ocean. If you are looking for clean accommodation with a sea view and in an excellent location to the centre of town, jetty and promenade, look no further. I cannot comment on breakfast as we didn't make the 9am breakfast but the service and hospitality, venue, location, room, secure parking, affordability and ambience was excellent.
