Just left this hotel this morning, gentleman working nights at reception was very kind&helpful unlike lady on reception this morning who wasn't friendly didn't even ask if we enjoyed our stay or say thanks. Room was cleaned to perfection & the girl that set up the bed for our little boy did a brill job adding a special touch. Food... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are always interested in positive feedback and constructive criticism. We are very sorry that our staff was not friendly to you. This is absolutely not the standard. We are located at a part of town called Veddel, which is near by the industrial harbor but very close to the city... More

A very reasonably priced hotel situated in Harbour City on the south side of the Elbe, only 2 stops from Central Station. Rooms are simple but comfortable, with very little outside noise evident. Granted, the hotel is situated in a rather dark residential area - having stayed there in late November, street lighting was very poor. However, it is about... More

Never a 4 star hotel. Location was the first thing to be concerned by, it's not exactly in a nice area and you don't feel particularly comfortable leaving your car in the exposed parking area behind a dodgy-looking fruit machine place and a penny markt. 'Renovations' were going on when we arrived and I was stunned when I saw that... More

We stayed at the Carat for just one weekend night when visiting the Model Railway museum. The hotel is in a quiet but rather stark area in Veddel. We got the impression that it's not a nice area to wander about in, but there's a convenience store on the hotel doorstep and it's just a 10 minute taxi ride into... More

The hotel does not definitely earn four stars maybe two and a half. They say, there is air condition and safe in every room but that is not true. In the breakfast room the hotel personnel was eating chewing gum while serving guests. They were friendly but did not look happy as they should do in customer service. Internet costs... More

On a recent business trip to Hamburg I stayed in 3 different hotels. This was the worst of the 3 by some way. The hotel is a 20 min taxi ride outside of Hamburg and is located next to the main motorway that feeds Hamburg. The traffic starts around 6:30 in the morning and is within throwing distance of the...

Booked this hotel after a good price. The location of this hotel is poor a good 10 min walk to veddel station. We did not feel safe walking back at night. Free parking at the hotel is a laugh there are only a few spaces or you have to park in the supermarkets car park at the back unless you... More

At the weekend they serve breakfast until noon which I think is enormously civilised and I would encourage governments to draft this is as a legal obligation for hotels the world over. That apart, the buffet breakfast was only adequate. Not fabulous but certainly not the worst breakfast I've ever had. Decent juice and tea but let down by a... More
