Nice & clean hotel not far from the Holstenstrabe S21 S23 underground station.Lovely shower in the ensuite.I was disappointed with the breakfast,no sausages only cut up frankfurters or mince spiced pork balls(Vienna patties?) but mostly no BACON.I wouldn't of mentioned it but they make a big deal of their breakfast(and it isn't cheap).

A good value hotel in Hamburg. Rooms are basic but clean, all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent, with the attendant being particularly helpful with regard to special dietary requirements. I'd certainly stay at this hotel again.

I needed to be in Hamburg for a little over a week and wanted to stay somewhere close to where my meetings were. I always look for an opportunity to find a simple, decent room for less than EUR 100. This hotel is a bit out of the way and attached to a big office of Deutsche Post (German Postal... More

Reception was excellent. All the receptionists from the different shifts were extremely kind, lovely and helpful. The rooms are cozy, thought there are no air conditioning. I came to visit in the Summer and it was really hot in the room. The Hotel Room Guide is quite complete with hints about restaurants, banks, car rental, hospitals and tourism. It really... More

Yes, the inner courtyard looks like that, and it's a peaceful place to sleep. However, it's not easy to find, and it's basically rooms on top of a post office. Hard to know where to park - there is a reserved area (if your German is fluent) but you have to enter the Post Office van area first. To get... More
