“Great Find in Swakopmund”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

This pension is an amazing location! You are 2 minutes from the center or the beach! The value is really good for Swakopmund. We stayed for 4 nights in December and for the first 2 nights had a recently renovated room which was very clean and well done for our last 2 nights they moved us to a sea view room that had not yet been renovated. The reason for the move was because we had not pre-booked and they were trying to accomodate us at a busy time.

The un-renovated room was still clean, the view was ok not great but nice and it offered a patio. Overall for the price still a good value.

Other perks were a nice breakfast complete with made to order eggs, wifi and laundry service. The grounds are well kept and there is a 24 hour security guard for the car park.

A great choice for Swakopmund!

Pension Rapmund is perfectly located in central Swakopmund, a short walking distance from many of the town’s attractions & cafes/restaurants. Our room was simple, bright & clean – the only small concern being the ceiling of the bathroom looked to be old low–density type asbestos panels that weren’t in the best condition. The breakfast was very good. I think we were an oddity as possibly the only non-german speaking guests! – it’s a very german influenced hotel, but the staff were very helpful & friendly despite our language difference. It was a great value stay – very reasonably priced even in peak season.

Good clean hotel in the heart of Swakopmund - we had 2 seaview rooms which were light and airy and very clean. Breakfast is also great and overall it's really good value for money.

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 :)

The hotel is near the centre of Swakopmund, but as Swakopmund is fairly small this is not a particular selling point.

The rooms are basic (no radio, no TV!), but do have access to communal kitchenette facilities for tea, coffee etc. The balcony overlooks the parking area and any view of the sea is blocked by trees. The beds are not uncomfortable, but it is not really the kind of place where the hotel itself is "part of the holiday".

The breakfast buffet is not bad, and has a very German feel to it - lots of meats and breads.

The main complaint would be that the prices turned out to be higher than advertised on the hotel's website: I booked for four nights but was forced to cancel one, and was told that this would be no problem; I suspect that the owners took the four-night price and divided it by three instead, so I ended up paying for the night that we cancelled anyway.
