"Excellent value for money (except for breakfast)"
The hotel is excellently located at the river Elbe with fast access to the Autobahn (south) and to Hamburg city center. The hotel is in good condition, the rooms (here: standard plus) sufficiently equipped and very practical for (here) a 10 days stay. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Free parking available, but always full; you still can easily avoid the garage parking fee by parking just outside the hotel compound. Breakfast buffet is quite good, however, 18 Euros is too much for people who can't do an "all you can eat thingy" for breakfast. I am originally from Hamburg and definitely will choose this hotel again for my next hometown visit.
Arrived and checked in at the Holiday Inn reception and walked through the hotel to the apartment. It was on the third floor and was amazing. It had a separate fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker and plenty of equipment and storage. The bedroom was large, overlooked a lovely street and was quiet. But the main living area was enormous, well furnished and had a large balcony with a view towards the hotel. We had access to the hotel gym, swimming pool and sauna and there was an excellent,clean and safe children's playground on site. The whole experience was wonderful and relaxing, having an Aldi just down from the bus stop. The hotel can be reached easily from Hamburg Hbf by catching a number 3 bus opposite the station (a couple of euro) and getting off at the Holiday Inn stop. We also walked in to the centre in about 30 minutes, so it is not far at all. There is also a pub and restaurant at the Holiday Inn and several cafe/restaurants in the area. Opposite the hotel, there is a pleasant walk onto an island and down by the river.
