It is a national monument but is not financially supported as such. It is in this extraordinary setting that we provide accommodation which has the atmosphere of a historic house. There are no lifts, only stairs. Renovation is required in a variety of spaces and is carried out on a continuous basis. This includes walls, ceilings, wooden floors, plumbing, electrical items etc. etc. etc. nothing is perfect; it's OLD.Although we try our best to keep everything clean, if the wind blows (as it does a lot in Luderitz) there will be dust, there will be some sand in the windows and all kinds of things blowing through the yards. The roof and building will express its age with a variety of noises.Our establishment is NOT a hotel; there is no reception desk, no portier to carry your bags and if you arrive after normal working hours (17h00) you will have to contact the on duty manager and can expect to have to wait some time before they will arrive to check you in. There is a licensed restaurant on the premises where you can enjoy a drink while you wait.Arrival after the restaurant has already closed (20h00) defines a "no-show" and you will have tofind an alternative establishment for that night.While our service providers provide their services (e.g. electricity, water, wifi etc., which unfortunately is also never 100% guaranteed), you will certainly be able to enjoy DSTv (movie and sport channels), free WiFi to internet, clean running water, electricity and hot showers.Thus we provide for the general friendly, fun-loving, no-fuss, no-stress, relaxed people who enjoy taking a trip and enjoy life with all its imperfections. If this is your style : welcome to Krabbenhöft & Lampe!
Please note: we don't have a night desk at our guesthouse, check-in and handing over of keys will unfortunately not be possible after 20h00 on the day of arrival!
PLEASE NOTE - NO RECEPTION/CHECK-IN after 20h00 without prior arrangement.
