We actually booked into the Hotel Terminus but they put us in the hotel lumen. This hotel is running a scam and the staff are incredibly dishonest. We booked into the hotel terminus but on arrival they sent us down the road to the hotel lumen - a cheaper hotel - but no refund of the difference was made (he... More

I had to visit Hamburg for business, so I did not really need that much luxury just a the basics, bed and shower. And to my luck they had a special offer which seemed very appealing to me. When I arrived it was before the regualr check in times, but they were friendly enough to give me a room anyways.... More

The hotel is centrally located and rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable. The staff is reasonably helpful. On negative side: paper thin walls, very noisy, you can hear your neighbours' conversations (never mind other noisy "activities"). WI FI in my room did not work, I had to walk to the reception area to get connection, but there is nowhere... More

I did not mind the area – red lights do not bother me, if you are in to culture there is a theater next to hotel. For the price that I paid (€50 for single/night) I could not complain , the room was clean, receptionists eager to help you, WiFi working fast and free, breakfast was plentiful.!.!.!. What else you... More

I travel most of the year and never right bad reviews...that being said- First off, it's in the seediest part of Hamburg next to the train tracks on a sketchy street no woman(or man) would want to walk alone at night. Worst service. Unfriendly staff with no manners at all. It's an almost 40 step walk-up to the first elevator... More

Hotel was good value for money, be aware of its location, very close to the central railway station so udeal for getting around the city, trains very realiable and easy to use but the hotel is in the middle of many red light area`s so be ready for sex shops cinemas and prostitutes, though its does add to the experience.

I can't see any reason why I'd recommend this hotel or why for someone else this would be a great getaway crash pad. Avoid at all costs. I've made a list of points that should cover most of this. Location: In between 2 sex shops, no lobby just a door and a long staircase (no disabled access) and a sign... More

Firstly, look at Google street view before you decide you want to book here. The carefully digitally altered photos of the hotel are misleading, so look on Google Street view at it. Also it’s very easy for you to find – you’ll see the big blue ‘sex shop’ sign way before you’ll see the hotels sign! A group of us... More

There is nothing much to say about this property, neither very bad nor very nice. Considering that price of accomodation in Hamburg is in overall not cheap, then one can say that the quality/cost ratio is ok. On the positive side: really close to the Central Station, groceries and places to eat; not too dirty; quality of breakfast is ok.... More
