Easy to reach from the airport via a good rail link. Convenient for the shops the lake and the botanic gardens. Good quality hotel at a reasonable price. Rooms are well appointed, clean, comfortable and spacious. Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff. Free wifi would have been appreciated. This hotel met my expectations very well.

The hotel itself is fantastic, the staff are helpful and breakfast buffet is plentiful. Having to pay extra for WiFi is disappointing, especially when the service is so poor. This is a basic requirement for a business traveler and needs to be upgraded urgently. The gym is lovely and spacious, mainly due to a lack of equipment, it was also... More

Personnel is top. Location excellent. Direct rail line to airport. Breakfast beautifully served, with lots of fresh fruit. Only wifi was not only not available for free but also of poor quality. Room was comfortable. Bathroom had a bath tub.

In a city like Hamburg it is not easy to find a good hotel, with reasonable prices. In my opinion 140 Euro for a double room and almost 100 Euro for a single room are reasonable because everything in the hotel is of high quality: the beds, the quietness, the spaciousness, of the rooms, the maintenance of the rooms, the...

Really helpful and courteous staff - a pleasure every time. Varied breakfast with a lot of fresh fruit and good, real scrambled eggs. Location at Binnenalster means less than 10 min´s walk to the Town hall. U-bahn station right outside. I reserved a good time in advance and the hotel fulfilled my wishes about room location. Bland and a little... More

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
