The Alte Wache is in an excellent location about five minutes walk from the main train station along a busy, main road so there are no issues with safety. My single room was very small but not tiny; it was spotlessly clean and had a TV and wi-fi. The shower was tiny however with almost no room for movement at... More

I stayed here due to a delayed flight from Asia which meant I got in late from the airport and therefore missed my train connection. As the next train didn't leave until the following morning, I was left needing a hotel that was close to the railway station. The Alte Wache Hotel fitted the bill. Yes, the hotel is in... More

I have spent just one night in this hotel as I was passing by Hamburg and my biggest complainment would be about location.Perhaps it is close to the main shopping area and main city square but it is also too close to main train station so walking near it was not so pleasant experience.Beside this,hotel is very basic,it offers you...

I'm quite surprised this place is getting decent reviews. Really it is worse than my old university room and at €77 euros for a single bed, I think it is very overpriced. I travel frequently for work and don't mind staying in budget places but I also know what I can get for my money and this was not good... More

Excellent location and close to the main train station. Short easy walk from the main train stationa and close to the underground. Staff were kind and helpful. Price was reasonable - 70 Eur for the night. Room was clean and spacious - pillows were brilliant - reminded me of home.I will stay there again when travelling to Hamburg. The breakfast... More

Firstly this is a basic 3 star hotel close to the station but a nice and clean one. Location: 3-4 min easy walk from the train station. One gets out of the station or S-Bah exit from the airport (Block House Restaurant facing you is a simple ref) - on the right where the Museum and ZOB glass building is,... More

Last weekend my wife and I visited Alte Wache.It was the second time. The hotel is a very good 3 star hotel with a cosy lounge including a bar. The staff at the reception was helpful and nice. The nearness to the central parts of Hamburg is very positive The only remarks I will mention is that the computer`s connection... More

Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Staff is very nice and always ready to give a help or an info. Free internet at the bar and free wi-fi (through a free registration) in your room. Very "strategic" because buses, trains and u-bahn are just at a couple of minutes of walk. NeXT time, I'll sleep there again!

I was in Hamburg for two days and needed a hotel close to the Central Railway Station. This part of the city is not the best and looks dirty and a bit dangerous. "Alte Wache" is a happy exception: less than 10 minutes walk to the station the hotel is situated in the street which is much more decent (no... More

The Alte Wache is much better than most of the 3 star hotels near the train station. Although only a 5 minute walk, it avoids much of the sleaze in the area, and offers a comfortable and safe stay in Hamburg. The staff makes an extra effort to be friendly and kind, and the breakfast buffet is lovely, with candles... More
