“Pleasant, perfect location”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Nice room that opened onto the garden, nice big bathroom, comfortable, quiet, well-groomed, a feeling of being surrounded by "old-school" values and the nicer things. But not a special place, not warm or charming. Did not eat dinner there so perhaps missed the high point of the place. Breakfast good but again, not special. Its location is its best feature, an easy walk from everything in downtown Swakopmund, restaurants, shops, museum, etc.

Room Tip: ground floor garden-facing room was very nice, not noisy at all.

Having travelled extensively in Europe, South Africa and parts of Asia, we rate the Hansa Hotel in Swakopmund, Namibia, as the best dining experience ever.

Service is impeccable, the quality and presentation of the food is always exceptional and the wine list out of the ordinary.

Even their casual lunches are very good and well priced.

We have been going there for over 35 years and have never been disappointed.

Great to be a guest at the Hansa. Everything works and the staff is well trained and very friendly. Managment is always on the premises. Excellent food and rooms and public areas. Charming and very effective. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. 10 out of 10. Wow

Room Tip: We prefer non-smoking rooms and stayed in the rooms from 1 to 10, but all rooms are tops.

It was an absolute pleasure to stay at the Hansa... My business trip required continuous internet connectivity and the efficient staff offered alternative rooms in the event that the connectivity was not to my liking.

Friendly, helpful and very efficient.

The rooms are spacious and neat and as a coffee addict, I was pleasantly surprised to have ample coffee sachets in my room where only two are supplied in most hotels.

Lovely hotel and I will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely - you can't go wrong.

The hotel experience was great. I moved to this hotel after I stayed at the Swakopmund Hotel for a night and did not like it. The Hansa was great. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff were professional and competent and the food at the restaurant was very good. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. Overall, very nice hotel and the best place to stay in the area.

Room Tip: I stayed in the second floor with a room facing away from the street. Room was very quiet at night.

The welcome of sparkling wine or juice was very welcome. Staff was charming. BUT trying to get lunch one found that you could wait an awful long time. The best feature was the little garden which did not have enough tables or chairs, but if you were lucky enough to sit down the birds were miraculous. A birder probably would think that they could be found anywhere, but to see those lovely hanging nests with the birds busily feeding their young, the peace and quiet was lovely. The dining room is lovely and the service excellent. The food is good. Breakfast fine. My room was ok but the air conditioning did not work and the only window opened on to a parkin area so did not want to open it..

Room Tip: there are a lot of stairs and no lifts, try the garden level. better access to garden and available...
