We booked this hotel for short break in Hamburg and wanted to stay fairly central but still have a nice view. The location is great - the bus stop is a few minutes walk but a 20 minute stroll along the Alster also gets you right into the city centre.
The hotel room was comfortable and quiet and a nice mix between the older tradition building and modern fixtures and fittings. The room wasn't overly spacious but was more than adequate for a short break. Breakfast was good with an adequate range of foods available including some vary pretty and delicious cupcakes.
The only reason we didn't give the hotel a 5 rating was due to the fact that when we arrived the man on the desk although friendly was not a regular member of staff and after getting me to fill in the form simply gave us the key and told us to go to the third floor. The hotel as an old fashioned still lift with a key to operate and it would have been nice to be given some help. The receptionist on check out also was not overly friendly - I would have expected to be asked if everything was ok or something rather than simply handed the bill. Language was not a problem as I speak fluent German.
Another small issue we had was that the bar/bistro was closed on Saturday due to a party and there was therefore nowhere for us to enjoy a drink before going out which we would have liked to do as we were meeting friends at the hotel for dinner.
This is a typical Hol Inn Express, efficient! Good parking facilities at 10 euro a day And free decent wifi. Free breakfast as well which I think more hotels should do. A bit out of town but near underground for city/airport and Autobahn for drivers. Rooms on small side, but overall I would use again.
