Breakfast had too much of a woman's touch, according to my boyfriend :-) - I thought it was really nice. The guesthouse can arrange any of the activities that you can do... More

We were fortunate to spend four nights at Namib Guesthouse. The place is really charming and the key to that is the wonderful owner, Nikki, and staff. They knew exactly were to send us in Swakop to find anything we were looking for. The rooms are tastefully decorated and modern. We were always excited to wake up and enjoy the... More

Lovely guesthouse in Swakopmund. The rooms are modern and clean albeit a bit small. We upgraded to a suite so we'd have a bit more room to spread out. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful in booking restaurant reservations and tours. The location is very quiet and is within walking distance to downtown if you don't mind a... More

We were on our honeymoon and we had a welcome drink in our room! It was really nice! the rooms are good but a bit dark since they have no view. It's about 10min walk from the coast where are the best restaurants! the service is very good and the staff/owners are very nice.

Loved our visit! Modern, bright, clean and cozy. Management & staff were all delightful & incredibly helpful, helped us book dinner reservations & scenic flight, arranged laundry (much needed after a week in the desert!), gave us tips for sightseeing, dining & shopping in Swakopmund... And breakfast was sooo nice. Thank you Namib Guesthouse for a lovely visit!
