Swakopmund Sands Hotel provided great comfort mid-way through my Namibian safari. It has a sleek, contemporary interior design & just about every convenience you could want. Best of all, it is just half a block from the beachfront. I could hear the waves crashing even though I didn't have windows on the seafront.
As for the room, it was very clean. There's a refrigerator with two free waters per day, hair dryer, wi-fi (in the room itself, though it could be slow), a safe, and heater. Many rooms have wall-mounted heaters, but mine had a very inconspicuous dial, beneath the desk, to control under-carpet heating. (Worked great, but you have to search for it!) There are plenty of outlets to charge your electronics, too. Note that they serve only breakfast here, but it is plentiful and varied. Service is great. I enjoyed chatting with the staff on the front desk. They arranged a very inexpensive and quick turnaround for my laundry.
We absolutely loved this location---its proximity to the beach and its short walk to the well-known Tug restaurant. The central shopping streets were also a short walk away. One caveat: you must be careful on their front steps. It is often foggy & wet in Swakopmund, and the hotel has a very slippery polished stone for their staircase. Our guide fell while carrying luggage.
