“Good accommodation, centrally located”
Reviewed May 1, 2008

Stayed at the Swakop Lodge as part of our Kumuka Tour and was impressed.

Stayed in one of the double rooms, which was very clean & spacious. The bed was quite comfortable, and there were lots of cupboards to put your stuff into and a large vanity area with mirror in the bedroom. A large bathroom with a shower, but no bath facility.

You can have your washing done onsite for 50 NAB$, to have your stuff washed & dried and returned to your room.

The hotel is located only 2-3mins walk to the main strip and there is a large supermarket (Pick n’ Pay) within 5mins walk. There are about four banks with ATM’s also located on the main street.

The hotel has a nightclub upstairs, which also has pool tables. The nightclub fills with some ‘interesting’ local characters, and I’d probably not recommend going there as a single female.

Across the road is another club called La Cubana which is much quieter. Located next door to the hotel is an Italian restaurant which served good food (I highly recommend the Oryx steak).

The hotel has internet access, but its connection can be quite sporadic. I was disconnected from the network twice during the 20mins I was online, and had to come back several hours later to try and get back online. The cost is 10 NAB$ per 30mins, and there are four computers available.

You can also book adrenaline sports with the hotel. So if you’re interested in sky-diving, quad biking, dune surfing, just to mention a few optional activities, you can book it directly with the hotel.

  • Liked — It was very central, easy access to local shops
  • Disliked — Noise from nightclub
  • Stayed April 2008, traveled as a couple

Since 1 August 2008 the restaurant is managed by the owners of Swakoplodge. We would like to invite everyone to come and join us for a evening of great food and service at unbeatable prices.
