We got to the hotel 2 hours before check-in time and were delighted that our double room was available right away. We were impressed by the size of the room. A large double bed plus a large chest of draws to one side and a small table on the other . A comfortable armchair was on one side of a... More

Stayed for 3 nights recently as a base to see the Xmas markets. All right, in parts it's just a little bit faded, but a refurbishment programme is on-going. The room was spacious and spotless, and the bathroom was one of the best we've come across. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice, and the staff were always polite and... More

Just spent 3 nights staying at Alster Hof to visit the Christmas market and do some memory lane stuff as we lived here in the 80's. Our bedroom was a good size, with 2 huge singles pushed together in the Continental style. The en-suite was also large and had a bath which was good to relax in after a day... More

To be brief, this hotel is fine, very clean, the staff very helpful, it is well situated for the City centre, it is good value for money. My partner and I would stay there again. Finally, the City is wonderful, well worth a visit, we had 5 nights there but 3-4 would be fine to see and do. John &... More

This hotel provides excellent value for money, together with the great location and large comfortable rooms, we could not fault it. Each day got started with an ample continental breakfast and service was very friendly. Just a very short stroll to the Alster lakes and a good choice of restaurants nearby was an added bonus. We would certainly stay here... More

The hotel is near the U-Bahn. I got a comfortable but, unfortunately, very noising room and I could not rest. The breakfast was out of this world. no air conditioning: a real nightmare as it was hot and humid!

This was probably a nice old hotel once upon a time. It's ok, room at the front was noisy and there was no air conditioning. It was also a smoking room when I had requested non smoking. Staff are friendly and spoke English, although a cup of coffee at 9pm was too difficult for them. Breakfast was good. Located 5... More

This hotel is great for what you pay for. The location is central (near Alster), the rooms are clean and the staff is nice. The basic room has a small bed, but again, based on the location, cleanliness and price, I can't complain. I would definitely stay here again when in hamburg.

The Alster-Hof is a Nice 3 star Hotel situated in the centre of Hamburg, somewhat basic, nicely priced and well-located. The hotel is part of a chain, the welcome at reception is warm, friendly and efficient. All the receptionists spoke good English & one of them went out of his way to help an American Guest recover her lost luggage... More

This hotel has a very good location if you are going to The Hamburger Staatsoper. It is clean and there is a very good breakfast with many choices. Rooms are quiet if you stay in a room to the Court side. Two things are missing is a kettle and free WiFi.
