Spent two nights here on our way along the Skeleton Coast. Very nice boutique hotel located close to the seafront and the shops and restaurants in town. Friendly and helpful staff.

The room that we stayed in was above the bistro and was ideal as it had a lovely outdoor seating area which we made use of. The room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom had a large shower cubicle with... More

A very comfortable hotel very conveniently located for the centre of town and the Seafront. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, the first time the room was very nice and being at the back very quiet.

Very nice place to stay. Friendly staff. Parking is the only problem. Doesn't look secure. Would recommend it to any traveller. Town center is near as well as the ocean is in close proximity. Just the best.

We enjoyed two days at Hotel Zum Kaiser - and my wife loved the service with the hot-water bottle in the bed. The kids liked the Hotel as well as it offered the best WiFi connection during our Namibia trip.
