Nice little Hause with frindly service and super breakfast. Good located in walking distances to anywhere. It has all what you need to stay for one or two nights. Swakomund was for us not really a place to stay any longer than one night.

Easy to find but quiet location in Swakopmund with easy walks into the centre of town for evening restaurants. Rooms are very pleasant and the breakfasts are excellent. Nicky was a charming hostess, spoke three languages (at least) and was able to give lots of help and advice.

I stayed at the Namib for three nights at the start of August and really enjoyed the place. In terms of location, it's only a ten minute walk to the beach or town centre and I found the rooms to be very comfortable and clean. The staff were especially friendly and we're always on hand to answer questions. The lady...
