Swakopmund - Namibia
The Hotel Europa Hof is ideally situated away from Swakopmund's traffic or noise although it is still conveniently located within 3min walking distance from the beach and the city centre. Modern shops, banking and medical facilities and wide range of restaurants and bars and never too far away either. Self-drive tourists in Namibia and families often use the hotel as a base before and after a guided safari or activity / day trip.
There is a distinctive German flair about the architecture and food on offer and subsequently, European and Namibian qualities have been combined, typical for this coastal town. Facilities at the hotel include a restaurant and a bar, a guest lounge, an internet connection, laundry service, disabled access and secure parking.
The Europa Hof's restaurant is a fully-licensed, and has a large 'a la carte' menu of both Namibian and German specialties. A set menu is on offer for large groups and vegetarians are catered for. The chef's specialty is 'Oysters on ice,' and other favourites include a 'Coastal Platter,' a variation of kingklip, monkfish and swordfish, decorated with a prawn, and served with potatoes, and salad. The 'Seafood Platter,' has a selection of fish as above, but with hake, oysters, sole, crayfish and calamari, with salad. The 'Venison Platter, has a selection of game meat, ostrich and crocodile with a mushroom sauce, croquettes and red cabbage! A fine selection of local beers and South African wines can be ordered to compliment meals.
