    Recommend this place

    Very well run hotel. The view of the sea was lovely and internet very good. The town and seaside location was a great recovery experience after a busy trip. We loved it. A highlight from our holiday. We stayed an extra night and cancelled a different hotel, so that will tell you this place is worth using.

    Great place by the ocean

    Great hotel, value for the price. Right by the ocean and good restaurant around the corner for seafood. Place is clean, beds are comfy. Free breakfast is good. Staff super friendly. Secure parking at no charge. Nice sun decks to enjoy the weather. Nice bar on property with friendly bar staff. Breakfast ladies were friendly and very helpful. Front desk gentleman was friendly and very helpful suggesting local things to do. He even called and made a dinner reservation for us. Highly recommend this place.

    Good stay in Swakopmund! Close to the Jetty!

    Really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel A La Mer in Swakopmund. Well located, at a walking distance from the main restaurants and city center. Spacious room, clean, good bed, shower, except there is no fridge at the room.

    Well Priced, Nice Breakfast, Staff Need Training!

    The good points: Price, tasty fresh breakfast, helpful, friendly front office, clean light rooms (stayed in new section), decent location to walk to town center, the pier and the beach. The beds were comfortable and the bar open from 1700-2200 on the first floor with a lounge next to it was nice as was the upper roof deck when the sun was shining (not that common during our stay). The bad points: Noisy very inconsiderate cleaning room staff. Slammed doors and made noise early in the mornings and came into our room without even knocking. Noise from neighbors. Not good sound insulation and almost any noise seems to travel. Very weak wi fi other than at the front office. Frustrating to use if you want to open any web pages. Group tables in the breakfast room where you are placed right next to strangers without a choice of seating. All seating pre-assigned with name tags on tables so if you are not a larger family, you can count on sharing with strangers which we did not enjoy. We found the room very cold. Everything is modern with concrete/plaster walls and floors. They did provide a small floor heater when we requested it.

    Super schönes Hotel in guter Lage. Alles ist fussläufig erreichbar. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit bei der Ausflugsplanung. Die Zimmer mit Meerblick sind sehr schön.

    Wir hatten im Neubau mit Meerblick übernachtet. Das Zimmer war geräumig, modern ausgestattet und sauber. Im Vorraum zum Zimmer gab es einen Kühlschrank. Die Lage ist perfekt: sehr zentral und alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten und Restaurants sind in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Der Parkplatz war abgeschlossen und überwacht. Wir würden hier wieder übernachten.

    Die Lage ist hervorragend , sehr zentral, so das man zu fuß überall hin gelangt. Das Frühstück war sehr gut, der Frühstücksraum allerdings sehr laut und ungemütlich.

    Das Zimmer war sehr schön und groß mit einer tollen Aussicht, Meerseite, und das Bett war bequem. Das Frühstücksbuffet war leider nichts besonders, man konnte aber satt werden.
