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

We stayed here a night in July 2014. A very warm night since there was no air condition here, but we had a fan at the very least. A bit of noice since our room faced a medium busy street. All in all a perfectly decent hotel, small size rooms and I don't recognize it from the professtional photos, but... More

Good location round he corner from Altona station. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the bathroom clean and fresh. Breakfast in the next door hotel which is not so convenient. Downside is lack of air con and it was noisy to the street, but otherwise recommended for those wanting to stay in this area.

Stayed one night (as a stopover) in the Best Western Raphael Hotel Atona. We had a very pleasant and comfortable spacious room, although the setting was a bit 80s, but very clean with all the necessities in the room including slippers. Friendly staff who responded quickly to our request of changing room from a smoking room to a non-smoking one.... More

I've stayed in a few hotels in various German cties with work, and they are often a much lower standard than the UK. The room at the best western looked promising and looked as though it had been recently decorated. However the room was 29.5oC (85F) and there was no air conditioining. The fan was rubbish and very old. I... More

The hotel is conveniently close to Altona station, even with a lot of luggage. The hotel staff was courteous and the rooms were small but cozy. The showers were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Hi-speed wifi was available at all times. My only negative was that they provided two queen beds in a quadruple room which might be...

We stayed here for 3 nights on the 5th July, for the rate we paid we were delighted, very nice hotel, right across from Altona train station and a 15 min walk to the Reeperbahn. Beds were comfortable, showers and washing facilties were very good, and a good selection of channels on the TV. My only negatives are that the... More

I picked this one because it was a best western and close to Altona station. The room was clean and up to the standard but extremely small. the TV was put close to the ceiling so unless laying on the bed you couldn't actually see it. the bed was comfortable. the two low pillows combined made for a decent mid-height...
