Hotel Eberwein

Swakopmund - Namibia

The Hotel Eberwein, or 'Villa Wille' as it was first known, was originally built in 1909 by Hermann Wille, an architect and building engineer. This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Swakopmund and is only a short stroll from the beach.

Your accommodation is set amongst early 20th century buildings and a near-by well-maintained park. It was converted into a first class hotel in 1999 and the exterior structure of the building has remained untouched. The charm and charisma of the hotel associated with Swakopmund of earlier decades remains.

There is a breakfast room and the hotel serves a sumptuous breakfast buffet. Guests can relax and unwind in the lounge after enjoying a day's activities, and the well-stocked bar can provide for the odd tipple or night-cap!

All Standard and Luxury Rooms at the Hotel Eberwein are beautifully furnished.

  • Standard Rooms: En-suite bathrooms, twin or double beds, TV, telephone, mini-bar/fridge, a fan, tea/coffee station, an in-room safe, a hair-dryer and under floor heating throughout each room.
  • Victorian Luxury Rooms: 4 Victorian luxury rooms are in the old historic part of the building pinpointed by the preservation of stucco ceilings, windows and doors of the original structure. Similar facilities to the Double Rooms apply.
  • Honeymoon Suite: An upmarket luxury room with double/luxury room facilities. Extra attention to detail has been spent on the suite which includes room service.

The hotel has a secure underground parking garage and German, Afrikaans and English are spoken here.
