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.

I have only positive remarks to make. The situation of the Rapmund is escellent, I could go everywhere on foot. The room was most comfortable witth well-appointed bathroom en suite. Everything was spotless and most comfortable, including an enclosed balcony with reading nook. The breakfast was sumptuous and the coffee especially was something very special, so was the service and hospitality shown by EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF STAFF and management. I felt completely relaxed and at home and would like to return as soon as possible. The rates are most reasonable. THANK YOU Frau Sonia and your staff, auf Wiedersehen!!

Located in the centre of town and close to restaurants and beach Rapmund is a good place to stay. We, a family of four, stayed at a family room which was actually an appartment with 2 bedrooms and a living room. Clean and simple but excellent value for money. Breakfast is OK and the staff is friendly.

I stayed there twice already and keep returning...

I particularly like the location: it's quiet and centrally located, close to the lighthouse, restaurants, shops etc.

The rooms of the 'Pension' are simple but clean, I guess over then next year they could do with some renovation.

A bed with clean linnen, nighttable with lamps, table, chairs and a built in closet (which can be locked). Floor is carpeted.
The bathroom has a shower with hot and cold water at any time of the day. Floor and walls are tiled and towels are provided.
Rooms on 1st floor have balcony (with glimpse of the sea).

On the 1st floor tea and coffee are provided (free of charge) and there's a fridge.

Breakfast is good: different kinds of bread, eggs and bacon as you like, homemade jams, meatstuff, smoked fish and cheese. Hot coffee, tea or even hot chocolate if you wish.
From the breakfast area you look out onto a little, well kept garden.
The Mrs herself is there every morning and always goes around chatting to her guests. I like this as it gives a more homely feeling and you're not treated as an anonimous client.

There is parking space in front of the Pension which at night is guarded by a local.

We wanted a place to stay for the night so we can surf the dunes really early in the morning. Great Place, Friendly, Cheap, clean and lots of character. We really loved the german breakfast!

The Hotel is well situated near the centre of town and is relatively cheap..so OK ..suppose if your'e nt fussy....well. But being on Holiday calls for a pleasant and refreshing surrounding, anot a place that you leave feeling depressed! Hey..everything about this so-called Hotel hails from the sixties!..Faded linen,grubby carpets,frayed towels.......and man oh man.."was that a flea?" OK ..so if had been retro..that would have been a different cup of tea. At breakfast one got the idea you were being rashioned...black looks when we asked for another "Brotchen"!
Definetly one of the "lows" of our Namibia trip where we were otherwise fascinated by this country and what it has to offer.
