“Solid B&B at the heart of Swakopmund”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

This Guesthouse is located very close to the coastline, in view of the light house - which is nice for the sunset views. The house itself offers basic facilities and is family run. The rooms are a bit noisy as the backyard is used as smoking area and can be heard in all rooms - which also goes for conversations from neighbouring rooms. Parking facilities are guarded 24/7 - however the nearby park seems to attract some unpleasent folk at night ... .

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

Rooms are big, we had two separate bedrooms with locks and a shared living area with small kitchen and a little balcony. Carpets and curtains a bit dated. Breakfast was fine, but could have done with a bigger selection. WiFi didn't work well in the room. But the place is situated in a great location near the beach and the certre of Swakopmund.

We enjoyed staying at hotel pension Rapmund. Room is neat and clean. Breakfast ok. Wifi available, though signal not very strong. Centrally located, and near to the sea. Good value for money. Recommendable!
It is not mossige to have dinner there, but there are plenty of restaurants, Tug being à very good one, though we also enjoyed Lighthouse Restaurant!

This is the kind of hotel you want stay in if you do not intend to just stay in your room. It is very efficient and clean. The staff is super helpful and friendly. The location cannot be better, close to everything. Beds very good. Showers very good. Stay here if you are using Swakopmund as a base for exploration of this part of the Namibian coast. We enjoyed it.

I first stayed here in 1989, when it was run by the mother and daughter Rapmund team, and several times since. Now, the elder Mrs. Rapmund is gone, and her daughter has sold the hotel to cousins, so it is still in the family. It is a little more impersonal now, but this remains the best situated hotel in the city, walking distance to any place in town, and a pleasant, relaxed facility.

The breakfast is more substantial now than in the old days, but I missed Mrs. Rapmund's freshly baked pastries. Our room was fine, on the ground floor in the corner, so with cross ventilation. The prices remain reasonable. I wouldn't look anywhere else in Swakopmund.

We stayed for three days during December holidays and was pleasantly surprised at the value for money we got. We had the family room, it had a sea view and thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast which was included in the rate. Friendly staff, helpful management and a hotel which we will visit again.

I have been going to Namibia for many years so I know it well. If you want a great place to stay with good value, there is no better. As is typical of Swakopmund, there is no A/C but the ocean breeze cools everything well. The grounds and rooms are well kept and comfortable. You get an ocean view from this hotel, and it is within easy walking distance from downtown. The breakfast is one of the best you will find in Namibia. I highly recommend this place. I have stayed in many places in Swakopmund and the rooms here are as good or better than any other mid priced hotel in the city. It books up early, so reserve as quickly as possible.

Room Tip: Try and get a ground floor room. Some rooms have an ocean view from the room.
