We stayed here in room G2 as part of our overland tour. The accomodation was self catering and incredibly spacious, particularly the bathroom! My only complaint would be our shower was a bit small so the water would flow out onto the floor. We spent most of our time in the town which is a short (15-20 mins) walk away. We were told by our tour guide not to walk back from the town at night so we got taxis which were very cheap (N10 per person). The buffet breakfast was very good and there were some interesting but very nice breakfast choices such as chocolate mousse and pudding!

Alte Brucke has a big advantage in Swakopmund in that it is walking distance from the centre of town and from the sea. It provides basic but very well maintained self- catering accommodation, ideal for large families or two couples. The apartments have two bedrooms and very substantial living and dining areas with well stocked kitchen equipment. There have been recently refurbished (evident in 2010) and offer exceptional value for money in the area. The inclusive breakfasts which we were not expecting and were a bonus were well cooked and hot with good coffee. All in all a very worthwhile place to stay in Swapkopmund if you are spending a few days and appreciate the chance the self-cater. The service of the apartments was very good daily.

Campsites were the nicest during our stay in Africa. Private shower and bathroom, grass site area, nice power hookup area, outdoor sink area to clean dishes and cook. Charged our batteries for us, but when we asked if we could borrow 2 towels as ours got left behind, we were told housecleaning was closed but we could go to town and buy towels. That was a little chilly. Doubt we will EVER stay in Swakopmund again as it is not desirable to do so, but if unfortunate enough to be there ever again, this property would be considered.

Alte Brucke is located 10-15 min walk away from the main street. Nice small semi-detached houses with a small patio out back, living room with two sitting chairs and a table, a table for dining with two chairs, some kitchen equipment and a refrigerator with a small freezer. Nice and well working bathroom. Sleeping room had one queen size bed and a single bed. Everything was very clean. The whole house keep in light colours. We had breakfast in the mail building – hot and cold choices, but not overwhelming. They do not serve lunch or diner (when we were there at least). Service throughout was nice, polite and quite effective. Consider taxa from town at night, it is 4-8 USD. It is a pretty dark route. It is really a nice and relaxing place to stay.
