“Good hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2014

Dears,
I was with my daughters, one 18 y and the other one 12. Rate per room was almost eur 90 per night, booked one month in advance. Location is far from downtown: you must take ubahn from 12 min station walk from hotel. Otherwise breakfast is acceptable and personnel is very careful with all guests. Also furniture is a little bit old. If you have more funds, choose a well located hotel, if not, this one could be an inspired decision

You get free outside hotel parking lots behind Penny Market, in Hamburg Veddel near "Freihafen / free-habor", a multi-cultural part of the city state.
Breakfast buffet is really excellent.
Connection to sightseeing (Hafen-City, Landungsbrücken - piers for harbor cruises) is 10-15 min on foot or some 5 euros by taxi cab to nearest train station for city or regional public transportation.
located near Autobahn, expect 24/7 traffic noise with open windows

Room Tip: rooms to Penny Markt side are a lil bit quieter

First I was disappointed about the location, it look a little bit depopulated around the area hotel.
Not friendly staff , and they gave as wrong information.
And the price for the wireless, was just for one devices, and we had 3;(
Very good breakfast, good mat!

Although a little out of City Centre it is just a short 10 minute walk to a very reliable train service. The hotel is clean, comfortable and serves a breakfast to suit all tastes. The service at reception was top class and we were given advice on what to see and where to go. The room was cleaned out daily and there were sufficient TV channels available for free. WiFi was given for free as we were on a voucher.

This is a good little hotel in the suburbs of Hamburg.

For a reasonable price you get a exceedingly large room with some very German decor. Nice and clean with a comfortable bed. Didn't try the food there but the restaurant seemed very nice complete with a well stocked bar. The surrounding area is a little rough round the edges but is nothing to worry about. Its not whisper quiet being between a main road and mainline railway but again, its not so bad that you won't get any sleep!

Only real problem is the location. Being a 10m walk from Veddel S-Bahn station which itself is a 10m ride from the main station means the hotel is right on the edge of what is good for exploring the city. Doable but you'll wish it was closer as you wander round Hamburg wishing you could drop your shopping off before going for dinner.

Overall a good hotel but just a bit too far out.

We stayed here prior to catching a cruise ship as part of a long weekend package.
In my opinion it is similar to many other German city hotels - fine, but a bit dull and tired. Notwithstanding that the staff were attentive and friendly, the room clean and spacious.
We used the metro to get to the Carat. The directions on the hotel's website from the station are very poor, and unfortunately take you through a somewhat downmarket looking area. I am not sure if we walked this route at night we would have found the hotel. I would suggest get a taxi.
Once you know the route it is a less than a ten minute walk to the metro which is the quickest and cheapest way to explore Hamburg.
We had a buffet breakfast which was ok. Cereals, hot options, bread, meats, cheeses, etc.
I guess if you had a car the location was great as it is just off the E22 trunk route into Hamburg.
There is very little nearby in the neighbourhood of interest to travellers, but as I said earlier used as a base to explore Hamburg it remains a good choice.

I booked a single room online a couple of months before departure.I arrived 4 hours early so could not check in but this wasn't a problem for the reception staff.They offered to take my 2 bags to a secure area while i "explore" the area.
The hotel is a little off the beaten track,5.5k from Central station,a 14 euro cab ride.After a 5 minute walk through a large housing estate i discovered the local train station,Veddel,which is 2 stops away from Central station.
Returned to the hotel,checked in,and was shown to my room (103).It was a twin room for which i was not charged extra.This was an extreemly clean room.Not a speck of dust anywhere.The bathroom was spotless.Mattresses have protectors which is always nice to see.
On the food side i had pork,irish potatoes and salad in the bar,which which was good.Later,i tested room service by ordering Currywurst,which arrived in under 10 minutes.
I enjoyed my stay here.
