Was in this hotel for the first time, forcefully had to book at this hotel as could not get stay at Hansa Hotel (usually I stay at Hansa) during Oct it is season time and many tourist come to Namibia (Walvis Bay and Swakopmund).
Not a star hotel, and the facility was also not all that great but for the area in Swakopmund, this is a better hotel. A full german style building and rooms looked like I am in a old german cottage. Rooms were clean and tidy.
What was disappointment was the electric socket there was none near the bedside nor a working desk..... and the worst was the water kettle heater, not cleaned and washed for ages it looked like. When informed to the management, they cleaned it the next day, but was not comfortable, so the hotel management then changed it but still it was not upto the standard.
Food was good, breakfast, lunch and dinner were served as per their timings, if you are late, then just forget about your starving.. you will have to wait till they open.
I was felt very upset the first day, when I entered the restaurant for breakfast, I was told to sit at a table where there was cup, to my surprise, there was only one table that could be seen with a cup on it, rest of the table was prepared for lunch and the time was just 8:00 am. The lady at the restaurant told me to sit at that table.... I asked her why not the cup travel from that table to the table I choose to sit?
Bathroom can be very very cold, if you don't wear your bathroom slippers.
It happen the next day too and the I got used to it for next 5 days. Staff was very friendly and cooperative. No issues on that.
Would recommend travellers if they are looking for a budgeted hotel, but be aware that restaurant is damn expensive....
