The hotel staff were all so friendly and welcoming, the hotel was clean and very pleasant but our stay in Hamberg was during a very wet, dark and cloudy weekend and I found the dim lighting throughout the hotel a bit too dim. I do understand the aim to provide a pleasant ambience but it would have been good to be able to make our room bright when needed. Breakfast was lovely and for us visiting our son nearby the location was perfect. Transport is close, clear and easy to use with all announcements also in English, one of the most welcoming cities I have ever been to, well done the locals of Hamberg
"Hotel itself is fine, but area around is scruffy. "
Location is about 10-15 min walk from nearest S-Bahn station, Holstenstrasse. The area is not well served by eating places, although the hotel does try to help. Hotel position means most rooms face on to an inner courtyard / garden, which means they are quiet. The room was fine, plenty of room, comfortable beds, Wi-Fi worked well (and is free), and bathroom / shower were good. Breakfast was expensive, but there are few options in the area, if looking for alternatives. Quality of food was good, although the scrambled egg had dried out. Staff were polite and helpful.
This hotel is located in the trendy area of Hamburg called Altona, but it is pretty basic and room prices can be hugely over-inflated given the level of comfort offered. It is a little tired and almost verges towards being a hostel. However, there are few other options in this part of the city and so I have needed to use it several times, even though I would have preferred not to.
A very good place to stay. Within a minute walk of one of Hamburg's main public transportation hubs, you'll get anywhere quickly. Lots of food available in the area, good shopping. The hotel staff was great, the room seemed recently refurbished and was perfectly clean. It was quiet. The bathroom has no tub, but a big shower cubicle easily fitting two people. Storage space was a bit of an issue. Because the room is split into a bedroom and a small office, there was hardly any space to have an open suitcase on the floor. The cupboard had only two shelves, one of which was out of reach even for a tall person. I ended up stacking my clothes on the floor in front of the cupboard. There is a fridge and a safe in the room, and a kettle with lots of different kinds of tea bags and instant coffee.
We wanted a night in a hotel with not far to walk to the Reeper Bahn and fish market. This was the ideal place for us. The room or should I say apartment was excellent. Staff were lovely and it was spotlessly clean. A little bit more expensive than what we wanted to pay but once we got in there we could see why.
The city's second centre, trendy Altona has a vibrant café and nightlife scene, particularly in neighbouring Ottensen. Old buildings in various states of renovation cram the narrow streets, often with bars in the basements. Near the train station is the Altona Museum and City Hall, while old fishing warehouses line the banks of the Elbe. The famous Fischmarkt takes place every Sunday morning.
