After having problems with the Ibis Budget hotel across the road before travelling I decided to move our group to the adjacent holiday inn express. We weren't disappointed as the hotel was excellent for our needs. Standard holiday inn express comforts with excellent staff. Would use again without a thought.

The hotel room was quiet, compact but well laid out, good size bed, choice of pillows, bathroom had good size walk in shower. The breakfast was complimentary and plenty of it (however I was in about 0730 each morning) but standard choices each day. The room was cleaned properly and there were staff members checking the work of the cleaners.... More

This hotel is an average hotel in the HolidayInn-chain. You know what you get, a nice room, comfy beds and a good bathroom. The breakfast is free, so you can overlook the fact that it's kinda boring. Staff was nice, and good information about Hamburg was easily accessible in the lobby. But next time I visit Hamburg I would probably... More

Good hotel with car park underneath. Nice large room and ok wifi. Staff not that friendly and directed us in the wrong way towards a location which was annoying! Close by to the action - bats etc and about 15-20 mins to Central areas and river side. Breakfast was included and had an ok selection.

My husband and I stayed the weekend at this convienetly located hotel. Our room had a great view of the city. The room was a bit small but it worked out fine. The pillows were very flat so you might want to bring your own pillows if you like fluffy pillows. The WiFi was very slow but did work if... More

Close to reeperbahn and thus questionable location, but no feel of redlight distc disturbance. Not really at the Messe. Subway 2 min walk . Rooms modern deco, clean, functional deco, comfy feel. Nice bath. Good bed. Modern BF, basic quality. Eager staff cleaning up fast. Front office service rather 'dry' and functional only. Value fr money ok

If you are at an exhibition at the Hamburg Messe then this Holiday Inn isn't the worst place you could be. It is about a 15 minute walk to the exhibition centre and a 2 minute walk to the Reeperbahn (if you like that sort of thing). The rooms are ok for a budget hotel. The staff are friendly, the...

OK so there a lot of hotels in this area (Reeperbahn)...A LOT. so you have many choices like the Arcohotel which is very modern, or the Ibis chains (both regular and budget) across the street. There are also many other options as well. Why do I say this? just to let you know you have options that are less expensive... More
