Nice place, but update needed

We stayed at "Sam´s Giardino" for one night. Sam´s Giardine is a comfortable old guesthouse in the outskirts of Swakop. We also stayed here 10 years ago and nothing has really changed over the years. This is both good and bad. The good thing is the owner, who is a very kind and talkative person full of interesting stories. We appreciated his kind welcome and company. Perhaps on the bad side, in order to go for 10 more years with visitors, the place needs an update. Nevertheless, its a nice place to stay.

The owner was no nonsense but thought of everything!

He was very helpful and was always around when needed.

Beethoven is a must and added a lot of character.

Unusual but comfortable and quiet

Lovely garden, great breakfast, room good, but a little dated.

Good night's sleep.

Sam and his staff were welcoming and helpful.

Sam's Giardino review

Damp and cold Towels never dried in rooms.

Overall I would not describe this as central and close to shops/restaurants

Sam's Giadino

Delightful Swiss Chalet style accommodation provided by the Swiss owner!!!! Very welcoming and friendly!

Sam served us at breakfast our fresh orange juice and sat with us chatting as he drank his coffee.

Fabulous to learn about his life and how he ended up in Swakopmund and about Namibian life, really great that he took an interest in his guests and took time to chat over a cup of coffee!!!

Sam's Giardino review

Nice place to stay in Swakopmund - although a bit far to walk to the downtown area.

Quirky owner who is happy to chat and help in any way possible.

Sam's Giardino

Sam's was a good stay and walking distance in to town. The room was a little dated, but very nice other than that. Sam was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome.
