Nice greeting by reception staff. Hotel ideally situated for the St Pauli underground or a short walk to the Landungsbrucken (Pier side). Room clean and tidy and good breakfast selection. Certainly recommended.

Standard Holliday Inn Express. Clean. Bad beds if you get single beds. Nice staff, the helped me getting a pizza, I learned the hard way that pepperoni is paprika peppers to Germans, so I should have said salami... A/C worked. The rooms are not very soundproof, and you kinda hear everything your next door neighbor does or say on his... More

Spent a couple of nights here with the family. Location is good if your primary objective is to be close to the Reeperbahn - ours wasn't. Breakfast buffet was crowded and not up to the usual German standard. Draft beer, wine and soft drinks available from the bar in the foyer, but no restaurant or bar.

Located close to Planten un Blomen - city center garden. Perfect for short walk after busy day - or day-long walk:) Hotel itself is nothing spacial - but be cautious because it has a highway on one side and a restaurant with a terrace on another - can be too noisy for some people to sleep.

As usual the room was OK, the AC was working and the breakfast was average. As usual there were internet problems and hard to find parking at their garage. Luckily there was a parking garage next door at IBIS. This is always the place I select for a one-night stay in Hamburg. If you don’t have high expectations you will... More

We liked the hotel on balance but the bed was really small and as we stayed for 6 nights this coloured our experience. Staff we mostly fine and mostly very busy. So its doing well the area, Hamburg and the hotel. I would not return unless i could upgrade to a bigger bed.

The location of the hotel was great; close to the Reeperbahn. It is next to a busy road so the rooms at the road side have to have closed windows at night. Upon arrival there were no towels in our room, but after a quick call to the reception we received a batch. The breakfast (included in the price) was... More
