Pricey for what is a basic room, with poor water pressure, excessive noise - both internal and external (have they not heard of door cushions? it slams every time anyone opens it) and cleaning staff who leave the windows open - on a rainy day that is certainly not good for your belongings, or for your socks when you walk...

All in all, I quite enjoyed my stay. Being in Altona was a bit of a surprise, but I actually came to appreciate it. Great restaurants, smaller crowds and the feeling of being in Hamburg rather than just another international city. The hotel was fine. It is small, but just fine! My room was more than adequate (a premium room),... More

Our room on the first floor facing the back courtyard was very good. We visited in the fall, temperatures were mild and room was comfortable although duvet was extremely hot. We had to take it off. It would be helpful if hotel provided a light sheet or blanket as an option. Bathroom is small and might be tight quarters for... More

The room was clean and fresh and the staff was very friendly. Had a room against train station but double windows isolated noise very good. During my stay the temperature was around 20 degree so missing air con was no problem. The wifi was very good in my room on 4th floor. Didn't try the breakfast.

Booked via Booking.com so maybe the 'rate' is for some specially reserved rooms in what used to be another hotel next door but accessed via a diferent entrance unless you are on the 3 rd floor. Don't make mistake of asking for a quite room meaning a 'quiet room' as you will just get one further down the corridor it... More

Very good and cheap hotel for short time business trip near train station and city center. Service is fully consistent with the proposed price. Rooms well equipped with a minibar, two TVs and a kettle for tea or coffee making, which is also available at no extra charge.

I stayed at this hotel, during the Eurotier exhibition in Hanover. I was to late to book a hotel, and the prices around Hanover was aporx 200 EUR/night. I then figured out that rooms in Hamburg was at a better price, and with a 1:30 commute to Hannover with Deutche Bahn, it was easy to stay in Hanover Altona. The... More

Considering we booked the 4 months in advance of trip there appeared to be no advanced purchase rate.The rooms were nice, service good and breakfast great (although was an extra cost which we knew about when we booked). It has free wifi, (i hate when hotels charge extortionate amounts for this) In comparision to other hotels nearer st Pauli it... More

My rating is based mostly on location. This is not a plush hotel but a good place for travelers to stay that need to be close to the train station. It is clean and friendly and has a decent breakfast. There can be some noise on the street/train station side but the back is fairly quiet. Our only complaints are... More
