Kramersdorf Guesthouse is a family owned and operated guesthouse in the quaint little town of Swakopmund on the central coast of Namibia. It is well known for its historic German architecture. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert Swakopmund has a uniquely mild coastal climate throughout the year. A wide variety of tourist attractions make Swakopmund one of Namibia’s most popular destinations. It is a ‘must see’ on every Namibia-Tour-Itinerary.
Robert Becker, born in Namibia, has fulfilled a long-standing dream with the guesthouse. After successful apprenticeship years with the Marriott Chain in Frankfurt/Germany he gained several years of experience in the hotel industry all over the world. Among others in far away places like New Zealand and Bahrain. The longing brought him back to Namibia. After short outliers into other professional sectors, he is now back with his true passion, the guest business.
Kramersdorf Guesthouse was completely renovated and refurnished in 2018 and opened its doors to the public on August 1, 2018.
We are proud of our country and our heritage and support the local community by offering as many local products as possible. For breakfast we serve smoked meat directly from the farm, homemade jam from Windhoek and eggs from the Swakop valley.
Most of the furniture is made in Swakopmund by local manufacturers and the typical African baskets come directly from the curio market at the Mole.
If you live in such a sensitive ecosystem as the Namib Desert, it’s your responsibility to be ecologically conscious.
To minimize our environmental impact we have installed two solar geysers. Furthermore we recycle our waste and dispose our kitchen waste on our own compost heap. We use biodegradable cleaning agents and minimise the use of plastic such as disposable water bottles, cling wrap and plastic bags.
