The location of the hotel is really bad. You can be scared, if you go out after the night alone. You have to use password to use lift for going to reception floor after 11 pm. I think even the hotel managers have a safety concern. The location of the hotel is uninhabited. In the advertisement of the hotel, they... More

We stayed at the Ghotel for only one night, and partly chose it for its free parking. We were somewhat confused about how to get into the hotel from street level. Turns out you have to take an elevator from a courtyard (outside!) up to the lobby. Definitely different. Our room was fairly large, with a big window looking out... More

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
