Last years always stayed here for 2 nights on our trips to Namibia because it has good location and good breakfast. The rooms however needed some updating - which I specified in an earlier review I think.
Now the rooms have been repainted, the bathrooms have been redone and the breakfast room has been updated in nice fresh colours and it's again a GREAT PLACE, really value for money !!
Believe me we went to different hotels and B&B's in Swakopmund and most of them were overpriced. Depending of course if it's value for money or luxury and fancy rooms you're after: we were looking for location, quiet room and clean bathroom.
The rooms are not fancily decorated, just a good bed with clean linen, 2 nighttables with a lamp, desk with chair, 2 easy chairs, cupboard with lock, a bathroom with shower and good towels.
What more do you need?
And the service has - luckily - not changed: a nice hearty breakfast buffet with juice, coffee/ tea, eggs and bacon the way you like, cold meats and cheese, marmite, jam, paté, Namibian salami, toast or buns, yogurt, fresh fruit salad...
Oh yes there's a little kitchenette (no cooking) that you can use which has a fridge and water boiler with free coffee/ tea/ sugar/ milk.
Do make reservations ahead when travelling in high season.
We will be definitely returning to Rapmund Pension for a 5th time :)
