“Quite Comfortable Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

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....

Room Tip: don't know what to advise as all the rooms has adequate light and are airy... so there is no cho...

Both myself and our group of 18, really enjoyed our evening meal, at the very good restaurant.
I liked the Germanic style of both the food and the decor. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. The menu was extensive and generous portions were the order if the day. Food was delivered to our table hot and prompt. I will certainly visit this restaurant again and will consider staying at the Hotel, as well, in future, on my next visit in a few months time. The bar menu was also very good.

I stay in this Hotel whenever I am in Swakopmund for business. I like the cleanliness and situation of the Hotel. They have an amazing menu in their Restaurant - the food is a bit expensive but well worth it. I usually order an omelet for breakfast and it is good.
I can really recommend the Hotel if you want a quite and neat place to stay.

The hotel is centrally located and very close to restaurants and shops. The rooms and bathrooms were decent and clean. The breakfast was acceptable and the restaurant served good food. The staff was nice and the parking for our 4WD was simply perfect (they cleaned our car during the night without having asked for it!).
If you look for luxury this is not your place but while visiting Swakopmund during your self-drive safari this is definitely an adequate place.

We have stayed a few days in hotel europa hof. A nice hotel but a few days later we have been called by the bank that they tried to pick up 22 times with our credit card and the succeed 2 times in swakupmund. So we blocked the card.
We only used the card to pay the hotel so there they have made the copy of it.

So nice hotel but be carefull with your creditcard

We stayed here for two nights as part of a small group tour of Namibia. The place is centrally situated in Swakop with many restaurants, shops and bars within a short walking distance.
The building itself is pleasant enough being loosely modeled on a south German Alpine style. There is an adjacent bar which we didn't go in because smoking is sadly still allowed in Namibian bars and restaurants - its surprising how quickly we've got used to the non-smoking idea.
Our room was quite nice with a decent bathroom and a room safe but strangely inadequate lighting. Breakfasts were of a very good standard but the waiting staff clearly didn't like getting up in the morning and miserable Michelle just couldn' manage a smile. Lots of Germans, as you would expect, all tucking in to hearty breakfast bear testament to the food standard. Didn't try the restaurant as there's too much choice out there. Swakop is a nice little town with more to it than the capital really.

  • Liked — Central location in Swakop
  • Disliked — Strange bedroom lighting and miserable Michelle

I stayed at the Europahof over Christmas 07. The staff were friendly and the breakfast pretty decent (fantastic German bread), the room was o.k. The wooden floors and walls, although they look lovely, do mean that noise travels and a small group on the move sounds like a herd of elephants. I would stay here again if the price was right (I found it a bit expensive for the standard but don't know if thats just the popularity of the overall area).
