“Old-School European Style Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Like other reviews have stated, the location is very convienant to the St. Pauli U-Bahn station and only a 10 minute or so ride from the main train station. From the Hotel, 2 stops on the U-Bahn gets you to the harbor where plenty of activities along the Elbe River are located.

The Hotel sites on the edge of the Red-light district, but never had a problem with noise or other issues associated with such an area. Plenty of Resturants are available around the hotel.

The hotel lobby is small with a bar attached to it and the rooms are on the upper floors of the building. The rooms are small and basic but clean. The bed very comfortable.. My only complaint was the size of the shower which had a shower curtain that wanted to wrap around you.

The best part of the hotel was the extremely friendly and helpful staff who were second-to-none. The included breakfast was decent too. Wi-fi was included.

For the price, I would definately stay again.

I stayed at this Hotel for a long Weekend and enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the rich breakfast buffet, the free Internet and the Location, as it is within walking distance to a U-Bahn Station, and especially to the Landungsbrücken and all major attractions around Hamburg Harbour, directly situated on the "Reeperbahn". The single room was a small double for single use, the bathroom was well equipped. Everybody was helpful and friendly. The value was very good, as the room rates are not expensive and I would return there for a future trip to this great City.

I stayed at this hotel for four days. The rooms are small, especially the bathroom. It wasn't a pleasant room. HOWEVER, the hotel is really close to the train station, St. Pauli, the staff were very helpful, and the internet was free. The real surprise came later on when I received the bill - the price was amazingly low, and I could pay it in cash!

it was nice to stay in this place. right on the corner of reeperbahn, very close to the train station and well connected to the city. this is a very good place to stay if you are looking for a budget hotel yet with all the basic amenities one can expect.
the breakfast is decent for the price and staff very decent. within walking distance to many attractions also. free wifi is available.

Room Tip: choose the south side rooms if u don't want the noise of the traffic

Photos on the hotels website are misleading as the rooms are small, and not as modern or bright as implied. There wasn't too much noise as we had a room at the side of the hotel, but this would be different if you had a room facing the main road. Breakfast was okay with a good variety of food to choose from
My main complaint was the man who was on reception. He was unsmiling, very abrupt and unhelpful. He needs training in how to deal with customers, as I cant remember anyone on a hotel reception having such a bad attitude.
We later stayed at the Holiday Inn Express just around the corner and the staff there were the complete opposite, always smiling and very helpful with any request that was made. The Holiday Inn was also cheaper, and had better rooms with tea and coffee making facilities!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the front of the hotel, and try not to have any dealings with the miserable man on re...

This hotel is on the corner of the Reeperbahn in a questionable/interesting area of Hamburg. However, we felt quite safe. The rooms were not overly large, but were clean. the tariff was reasonable but we had to pay up front. The good thing was, it is within walking distance of many attaractions: the famous "Michel" church, Landungsbruecke, Bismark statue, Kraemeramt, Rathaus, and obviously the Reeperbahn itself. In spite of being in a very busy area of Hamburg, it was quiet and we slept well in the comfortable beds. We didn't breakfast at the hotel, but preferred to buy delicious pastries a short walk down the street. Coffee was available for guests.

The Hotel Imperial in Hamburg is directly situated at the Reeperbahn, where the night life is going on at night. The rooms are small so dont expect a big one. But they have been renovated recently and so they are very modern and charming. The staff is very personal and very nice and helps with everything. The breakfast buffet was small but tasty. For everyone who likes small personal hotels and not the big anonymous ones are here in the right spot.
