I´ve stayed in a Motel One for the first time. After hearing many positive reactions from friends I got the chance to check it out myself and was positively surprised. The room was as tiny as expected but well designed and furnished with high quality gadgets, like a Loewe TV or high class bathroom tapware. The bed was comfortable. Even... More

Booked by a colleague this was my first experience with Motel-One and it was a positive "One". It is very easy to understand why this formula is successful. Modern design but with a warm atmosphere. Efficient. Clean room. Great TV. WiFi. Good bed. Good shower. In the morning a warm welcome at the breakfast buffet that is so organised that... More

Close to the airport, but without shuttle service. Perfectly clean and comfortable before setting your journey. Rooms are too small, you can hardly place a suitcase to it. Fine staff. Would be great with the shuttle operating to a from the gates.

Dear thomasmatuska, Thank you so much for your review. As an Airport shuttle we are happy to offer transportation with taxi 24h a day. Since it is not so far it is payable I think. All of our rooms have a capacity round about 16 square meters. To reach the cheap prices of 79 € / night in the destination... More

Typical Motel One, which means I like it very much! Location is good, with a subway station directly in front of the entrance. Big underground parking garage and many many rooms. Outside seating, typical Motel One bar in the lobby. Rooms are typical. Not very spacious but sufficient, nicely decorated and clean! Breakfast basic but absolutely sufficient. Will go there...

Eays to reach from both Hauptbahnhof & airpot (S-Bahn & Underground) - clean, Wifi ok, rooms are rather small but Motel one is known for that --> therefore rather fair Price!

This hotel is located at the edge of a multi-cultural area, filled with restaurants and shops catering to the population. When walking from the hauptbahnhof to the hotel, you will pass these shops and restaurants as well as some places with "peep shows" and more. That said, I felt safe, it just is not picturesque. Now the hotel, that was... More

We had a great stay in this hotel, everything looks stylish, the rooms were very bright, clean and had excellent beds and an awesome bathroom (though just a small one). The hotel staff could be a little more friendly, not just smiling, but they supported us in all questions and had a lot of guests to deal with, when we... More

Visited also the Motel one in Altona. This one is better because of its location. That is probably why it is more expensive. But what a great deal, good hotel, good location, very good price. The only two things, rooms in these hotels are not that big but spotless. In this motel my room was too new and the smell... More

It's not a hotel to remember, but it works fine. Service in the reception is good, rooms are small but clean and some practical details as USB-outlets for charging. The bar, however, actually put down the rate one step. The selection is terrible ("What is IPA?") and service bad. On longer stays in Hamburg, I'll shop for a better place... More

This was our 11 year old's favourite stop in six weeks of travelling. Aqua is her favourite colour and it features heavily in this motel. The rooms were new, spacious and had everything you need. The novelty of the fake fires on the tv screen had us intrigued and was strangely comforting. The staff at the front desk were kind... More
