As others have said, this hotel is ideally located very close to the main station with its major rail connections and to the underground train system. You can get anywhere in the city in a short time. What we did not realise, until we read about nearby attractions in the hotel's booklet in the room, is that the Arts and Design museum is close by- indeed, no more than 3 minutes walk! This is one of the finest museuns of it kind in the world and must not be missed. There are also many restaurants close by. The hotel itself is quiet and very clean and comfortable, with friendly staff - what more do you want?

Room Tip: Many of the rooms are in the main extension which is OK unless you have heavy suitcases because a fe...

Stayed in a Comfort Room for two nights. Unbeatable location, just right in front of the Central Station. Like in many other major cities, the central train station is a convenient, busy location but also can be a rough neighborhood. But once you step inside the hotel, it seems you enter a totally different world. What a contrast ! The hotel is unbelievably quiet, well kept and clean. We had to carry our luggage along a corridor and take several steps and two lifts to reach our room at the back, but our room was very nicely decorated and quiet. Every time we left the hotel, we had to leave our key at the front desk, which was good because we knew our room would be well looked after. The free transport tickets was a huge plus. Breakfast was also good and we were very pleased with our stay. Only a little down side - the wi-fi connection wasn't very stable although we had to pay 2 euros for it per day.

Perfectly located walking distance from central train station. Overpriced if you look at room quality and services, but location compensate this.
Sleep for a night - late arrival and early departure by train - you can't find nothing more suitable.
Don't expect anything else.
Room is clean, streets of course are noisy.
Helpful staff - very fast service, as it must be.
Definitely will choose again as transfer hotel to/from train arrival.

We arrived at the Central Station with no hotel room since the one we booked gave me grief before I even arrived. So we walked across the street to this hotel and the receptionist was so nice and accommodating. The room was very clean and overlooked the train station but it was still quiet. The room was a bit small but pretty. The internet did not work in the room but we were there for just one night.

Quiet hotel despite being located right in front of the train station. Most of the main points of interest are within walking distance or easy to reach in the underground (also, crossing the street). The hotel provides a free public transport ticket, so moving around is easy. The rooms are small but clean and comfy, and the breakfast buffet is varied and very good. The staff is very helpful too. A good option.

I staid here a bunch of times before moving to Hamburg. There's not much to complain about. The staff is friendly and the rooms are ok for a business stay. Some rooms may be a little too small, but are cheaper than the regular rooms. When you're staying longer, ask the staff what rooms are available that are a little larger and are not facing the main train station.

The staff is also very nice and may allow you to swap your room (I was in a really bad one once, but all hotels have those) if you ask nicely and there's something available.

Room Tip: If you are staying for business, specifically ask for a small room to save money (if that's a co...

We arrived at our hotel two hours early, the reception staff were very helpful and let us up to our rooms 1.5 hours early. we were given train passes which was great, although we had already spent 40 Euros on travel tickets, so wish we had been told first that the hotel would provide.
Extremely clean rooms, the bathroom was great and the beds were comfortable. We were on the 5th floor and there was hardly any street noise. I have read that the rooms could be tricky to find, but I didn't find that at all.
Great staff and would definitely recommend for a city break as the location was perfect. right opposite the central station. Had a wonderful time in Hamburg.
