“Gracious hotel”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We had a very pleasant 3 night stay in July. The rooms were spacious and spotless, nicely decorated with a good sitting area. Bathrooms were adequate. The service was good and all staff very friendly and helpful. The location was also good within walking distance of beach and shops. Breakfasts were excellent and catered for all tastes. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

A fine place to stay in the centre of Swakopmund, with good service, reasonable food and comfortable rooms. Everything feels a bit dated and rather Germanic, but that is part of the charm of a thoroughly enjoyable and historically relevant residence in an interesting, seaside tourist town.

This is a review for restaurant only. We did not stay at this hotel.

We visited this place during our two day stay at Swakopmund. They close at 2 for lunch and we were late , so we came back for dinner.

The restaurant decor was nice and the server was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was good and looked like it was prepared by a chef who cared. The other servers seemed happy and nice.

We ordered the carrot and onion soup. That was good. The fish dish of the day was nice while the veggie platter was okay. Service tends to get a little slow towards the end so order the check/bill before time.

This place is not as expensive as Tug and also serves better food than them.

I would recommend this place for a good lunch/dinner option at a fair price.

Old style hotel with germanic overtones. Comfortable rooms around a flowered courtyard. Bar and restaurant in a classic European style. Excellent location right in town near a shopping mall street. Breakfast buffet is excellent in the Euro style. You can even get Lattes. Rooms have good sitting spaces and old school tile bathrooms.

Room Tip: First floor courtyard.

Located right in the center of Swakopmund, within an easy walk to everything in town, The Hansa Hotel harkens back to bygone days when the German community of Namibia would come to this little town on the South Atlantic to escape the heat of Windhoek. Today it is mostly tourists, but the atmosphere remains. The hotel is very comfortable with a bit of faded glory to it. The food is excellent, and the staff demonstrates a real commitment to service.

This beautiful old hotel are in the middle of stunning restaurants, bars and shops. Clean rooms and friendly staff to welcome you. For the big eater this hotel gives you a big breakfast and has a very nice menu for dinner. Food are off a very hi standard. Rooms can do with a upgrade.

Room Tip: Good affordable accommodation.

Old colonial building in town centre.
Internet pictures look better than itself.
Pleasant staff but slow.
Only a quick 1 night stay on a drive around Namibia.
It is probably one of the best in the area.
Tourism and new hotel don't seem to have arrived.
Breakfast v v poor.
Nearby restaurants good.
