“Stylish, exotic, but off city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

The hotel is located on an old industrial site. The rooms are very well equipped and the whole hotel is stunning due to its architecture. You find a good restaurant and a nice bar here as well as a standard sauna. The staff is OK - not overly friendly but efficient. Yet, the hotel is far away from the city center and therefore not optimal for city trips. Although very nice, I'd suggest another hotel more close to all tourist attractions since traveling between the hotel and Hamburg takes a while.

Dear Amsterdam_Chris123,

We wish to thank you for the review given on Tripadvisor regarding your recent stay at the Gastwerk Hotel.

We are pleased to read that you liked our hotel, the design as well as our restaurant and spa…

With regards to the location of our hotel, we’d like to inform you that there are two busses leaving only 300m from the hotel. One of them is heading directly into the city centre and takes you to Hamburg Speicherstadt within half an hour.

Moreover, our guests are always invited to rent our MINI clubman for free and explore the beautiful city of Hamburg by car.

Try it out next time you stay with us!

Your Gastwerk Hotel Hamburg team

An old manufacturing building renovated in an hotel. Absolutly unique and moderne but also comfortable. Worth the visit! Excellent breakfast in a beautiful room. Design wise you may like the minimalist aspect of it. Very good value for the price. I would recommand for a business trip.
Should you wish to visit Hamburg, please note you are not in the center.

This was a surprice when I reached in the Hotel and understood it was a coal warehouse in olden days, and now a swanky and cool hotel, it has even retained some machinery inside the hotel area, it gives a designer look and is a class apart, and the morning breakfast at the coffee shop is just great, it is the place you should consider to stay when in Hamburg.
This hotel is cool and cozy and gives you a good feeling, the staff are also friendly and nice.
The food at the restaurant is great.

Room Tip: Not sure, I was happy with my room

My husband and I were quite pleased with our room at this hotel. The bathroom was good, and the linens were quite nice as well. The room staff was accomodating and the cleanliness - as with all the German hotels we have stayed in - was top notch. Location was so so, to be honest. Quite out of the way. We took the rail from the airport and there were no cabs when we got out, so we had to haul our luggage up a hill and several blocks - it was warm that day - and we were pretty sweaty when we got to the hotel!

Dear Susan Taublieb,
Thanks so much for your stay at Gastwerk Hotel and your kind feedback.
We are glad you enjoyed it.
Sorry for the inconvenience regarding lack of cabs at the metro station. Unfortunately we cannot change the public transport system.
Travelling with heavy luggage next time you may want to take a taxi right at the airport. There ususally is plenty of availability.
For future guests with light luggage: it usually is a nice 8-minute-walk from the metro station.
Best Regards,
Gastwerk Hotel Hamburg

What a pleasant surprise this hotel turned out to be. Located within what once probably used to be some sort of industrial factory the hotel offers an amazing restaurant which serves a very god breakfast - our meeting room was wonderful and the rooms were very comfortable. The location is not quite as central as I had hoped for but the hotel more than makes up for it with its brilliant ambiance. Try it out - you won't be disappointed!

Stayed in businessclassroom. Very nice, light with big windows facing a quiet street. Good bathroom without bathtub. Very good selection of english speaking channels on TV, one of the best in any hotel I´ve stayed at. Very good and friendly staff. Small Spa, no pool and two small saunas. Good food and drinks in the restaurant. Location of hotel a bit off, some nice streets with cafes and shopping about 20 min walk but recommend taxi/subway/bus to center of Hamburg.

Stayed one night in a Junior Suite and enjoyed the hotel and service a lot. Great breakfast and room, nice design and very clean. Even though it is not right in the centre the hotel is not far away from the main areas in Hamburg. I will certainly return.

Room Tip: Junior Suite was great
