The room we had was basic and dated, but fine. Bed comfortable, good heating control and an the shower is ok with consistent temperature and towels changed daily (if left on the floor). However...there is very little sound proofing, and our sleep was constantly disturbed. It sounded like elephants were stomping around above us, and at one point there was... More

Pension style, homely yet quaint small hotel within 5 minutes walk of Hamburg Hauptbahnhof, and a short U Bahn ride to the centre of the city, Very helpful staff - during the Ash Cloud incident, they telephoned Hamburg Staatsoper to get me a ticket refund, without being asked, when the theatre itself had refused. Excellent breakfast, always including smoked salmon!... More

The pluses- very handy walk to the train station and pretty easy to find. Friendly staff- good on email communication. Nice breakfast. Great price. Very quiet (at least my room was). Good ventilation and the window opened all the way- comfortable temperature. The minuses-- The duvet & pillow covers felt nasty and kind of sticky and they were yellowing. The... More

This is a great location if you want to be near the central station. We had access to our room at 2:30, dropped off our bags and followed the suggestions for a great afternoon/evening in Hamburg. Interesting walk to the harbour and a fabulous fish meal by the water. Thank you Alpha Hotel! This was such good value for money... More

Positive points: about 3 min by foot from central train station and city center. There is several supermarkets near(the ones at central station works until later than the others, and works on weekends), friendly staff, quiet hotel, located in a safe residential area. Reasonable price. Negative points: charges 3% if payment is made with credit card. There isn't 24h reception,... More

Budget hotel, quite clearly. Don't hold your breath. But receptionist very helpful, friendly, and great location – right by the train station! Shame they couldn't give us a double bed, it was just two singles pushed together.

The title says it all. This place is cheap, so cheap I feel it would almost be churlish to mention how squalid the tiny room with the inroom shower was that I survived for one night before upgrading to a larger slightly dearer room with superior wet space. But its 200m to the main bahnhof, and adjacent to the Lange... More

The hotel staff were quite friendly and helpful. Grest location! Just 3 min walk from the Central Station and the main shopping areas are within walking distance. However, my check-in process was a bit lousy. I arrived in Sunday afternoon around 5:00pm but the hotel reception was closed. As I rang the bell, no one answer. There was a box... More

The best part about this hotel is it's location. It is within WALKING DISTANCE of the Hauptbahnhof. The next best thing was that the room was very clean, and the owner was a pleasant and helpful woman. The hotel itself is old and rather charming, with a bookcase full of books to read. What wasn't so good about it was... More
