“Nothing Wrong Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

That says it: nothing wrong here. The price was right, the location great (we only had one afternoon and evening in Hamburg, so no wasted time going to and from the Bahnhof) the room and bathroom were clean and big enough. Friendly service, chocolate on our pillow, and our name on the computer screen. Living the high life!
Seriously, just a good solid place. We had a nice view over the train station and it was not noisy. One night, June 2011

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Superb location (right next to the Hauptbahnhof) and therefore highly accessible for travelers. I'd asked for a quiet room and I got one at the back of the building, which was really peaceful. The room was clean and comfortable, with extra heavy drapes on the windows to keep out every bit of light. Extra amenities in the bathroom were an unexpected touch. Only thing sorely missing was a tea/coffee maker, one has to go all the way down into the business center and pay for the same.

The front desk staff speak english and are quite helpful and nice.

All in all a no fuss stay, everything was quite as expected.

You'll be looking straight at this hotel when you exit the train station in Hamburg. Helpful staff, nice rooms. Good value for money, and the 2-day transit pass is just genious for tourists. Would stay here again, recommended!

This is located right next to the train station, which was great for us since we had a lot of suitcases with us. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the rooms are nice, modern, and comfy. The price was a great value (€75/night) and has a free 2-day transit pass. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean nice rooms very convenient for train travellers very friendly and helpful staff and for an extra 13 Euros a very good breakfast. Very easy access to public transport.
The hall is very small and it is a bit complicated to get to some of the rooms

It was not just the location of this hotel that impressed me it was the way The Hotel Staff welcomed us.Upon arrival we were escorted to our room which was on the first floor room 7102,the lift took us to the first floor and the lift to higher floors was in the lounge area.The breakfast although a limited choice was well within our apetite.Would I stay at this Hotel again Definately.

Have to agree with the other reviewer on here - not 'very good' or 'average' just good!

Ideal location - smack opposite the rail station, 15min walk from the centre of the city. Rooms adequate and clean. Potential negative points - stairs to negotiate (despite a lift), no aircon, no safes in room (I would expect that) and only one English-speaking TV Channel (CNN). Also - they offered to keep my luggage on check-out day but were not able to secure it. Easy alternative is to leave luggae at the railway station - about 6 Euros.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Didn't go for breakfast at 13 Euros which I consider pricey- a short walk and you will find much cheaper alternatives. Ideally placed for good restaurants as well. Sight-seeing tour bus stops opposite.

Front-facing rooms can be noisy up until 3-4am. I can see this being a problem in the summer with open windows due to a lack of aircon. One or two drunks at the rail station - just give them a wide-berth. Supermarkets nearby.

WIFI 2 Euros for 24hrs - free internet access on a computer in the business lounge.

Big plus - hotel issues you with a 3 day pass to use all public transport within Hamburg. HINT - take the train to Baumwall - cross the river (towards the Dungeon) turn right towards the docks and find Ferry 62 right at the tip. Having this pass entitles you to use this ferry and it's about a 1hr round-trip in which you can see all the sights - for free. Saves paying for an official tour in German!

If you can live with the disadvantages then this hotel comes recommended as a very good base to explore Hamburg.

If you have a spare day, cross the road and take the train to Bremen - 30 Euros. Well worth a day out.

Over-all - good value and recommended.

Room Tip: Light sleeper? Ask for a room away from the front.
