Hansa Hotel has two accolades after its name - oldest and finest. It is the oldest hotel in Namibia and a constant forerunner in the Best Hotel in Namibia category.
Situated in the town centre of Swakopmund, the elegance is immediately evident upon entering and all the hallmarks of a classic hotel are everywhere: plush marble flooring, heavy wooden furniture that is polished and expensive, an immaculate reception hall, and deep noise-damping carpets.
The hotel has 58 rooms built on three floors in a building dating back to 1905 and the start of the German revivalist period in Namibia. Like the rest of the hotel, the rooms have a luxurious weight about them and though compact offer every comfort you could ask of the oldest hotel in the world's oldest desert.
The terrace is a foliage-covered courtyard ideal for a light lunch or mid-morning snack. Breakfast and dinners are served in the restaurant, which has an award-winning wine list and specialises in game meat and seafood. The lounge bar has a cosy fireplace and is a convivial start and end to any evening.
