“Good three star hotel right beside Altona train station.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2010

I don't suppose you could get closer to the Altona train station than this hotel. My room on the thrid floor and the breakfast room overlooked the train tracks, but there were absolutely no noise from the trains despite this.

I was travelling with a group of 17 classic car enthusiast and had not chosen this hotel myself. But I was pleasantly surprised by this three star hotel.
The room was not very big but adequate with twin beds, a minibar and a small television set. I missed a kettle and there were no coffe/tea/cocoa bags in the room.
The bathroom was large with a radiator which quickly warmed up the room.

The hotel seemed very new with a nice new interior.
The breakfast room was large and I didn't miss anything to chose from in the menu.

The location is perfect for those who needs to use the car train since the entance to the trains is just beside the hotel.

I wouldn't mind staying at this hotel again. There was nothing wrong with the hotel but since it seemed to be so new it lacks charm and cosiness.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2009

Stayed here for one night on business on 12th December. Perfectly located across the road from the main Hamburg central station, which connects directly to the airport. It was raining heavily, so the location was perfect. 1 min dash across the road. Make sure you come out of the correct station exit as it would be a long walk around. Google map it before you leave home!!

Arrived about 17.00. Fast check in. Polite staff. 8 floors in all. You get a free bus/train pass when you check in, which you can use back to the airport. Nice touch.

Medium sized room, but normal for a City centre. Very clean and efficient, with all the amenities expected these days. Smallish on suite, but with everything you need including a hair dryer. No iron or board though, so a crumpled stay unfortunately.

Comfy bed - had a good nights sleep. The hotel was busy, but there was no noise.

Well located restaurants and only a few min walk from the town hall, where the main Xmas market was located. 2 min walk to the river bank of the Elbe.

It has a restaurant/bar, where we had a few drinks in the evening. OK, but not much atmosphere.

Fine breakfast with lots of choice. Fast check out.

Could not fault it at E120 B&B. Definitely use it again for Hamburg.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2007

InterCity hotels are normally good and this one probably was as well. We tried it on spec. on Easter Monday. Big mistake. Although the one guy on the desk eventually tried to help us, he kept on trying to serve other guests who arrived later than us as well, with the result that we made no progress. Not what one expects from this chain, now part of the Steigenberger group.
So we left him to it and found another, less busy hotel instead. It was probably more expensive, but at least we could get in quickly and without feeling like fools.

stayed at the inter city hotel for 2 nights from 18th august, booked a twin room. Our check in was extremely efficient, room was very nice and found hotel clean throughout.
Our room overlooked the main train station which is at the back of the hotel, this could be noisy for some people but my friend and i had no problem.
we walked to the famous reeperbahn both evenings which was about 10 to 15 minutes leisurly strole.
i would definitely recommend this hotel, being cheap, cheerful and central.

Conveniently located hotel in Hamburg in a nice area. Rooms well equipped and functional, but without air conditioning. Watch out in the middle weeks of the summer. The room was extremely hot, and with the window open, extremely noisy. Apparently not many places in Hamburg have air conditioning, since the summer is very short... The hotel key acts as a ticket for the public transportation system during your stay, which is very convenient and a great added value, especially with the buses and S bahn trains right outside the door.

We stayed there for two nights. The intercity is a good, clean, no frills hotel. Our room was clean and bright and overlooked platform 12. Only the lightest sleeper would be disturbed as the sound proofing was very effective. To make sure I would ask for an inward facing room. Breakfast was excellent and served until 11. We stepped out of the hotel lobby onto the train to Berlin - many intercity trains start at Altona. There is a frequent S bahn service to most of Hamburg.
