“Modern,Comfortable and Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Built within an old gas works building, this is a modern and well appointed hotel that captures the industrial feel of the old gas works. Some remnants add that connection to the past.
A great restaurant and bar area, the staff are friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is good, although a bit repetitious by the third morning.

Stayed January 2013, traveled on business

When I was informed by our Hamburg office the hotel they had reserved for me was a converted gasworks station I can’t say I was instantly filled with enthusiasm. My fears were hardly abated when my taxi pulled into the crowded car park and indeed it was a large brick industrial building. However, my impression started to change when I entered the building and saw first the lifts and stairs and then the atrium and reception desk. After a swift and pleasant check-in I was soon in my room. Facing inwards into the atrium space, the room was spacious with many trendy design features. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom new and modern.

The bar area was relaxing for a quick drink before going to classy restaurant. The food was excellent, but with prices to match !

Breakfast was popular with not many spare tables each morning. In addition to all the normal offerings there was a large choice of tea available, most of which I was unfamiliar with. No option to have an English Breakfast teabag !

Overall, the Hotel Gastwerk was a tremendous surprise and great value. I look forward to staying there again.

I stayed here business in September. I got a room in the top floor. It was a very spacious room indeed which all the conveniences of a European city hotel.

Located of Mendohlsson Strasse in the Altona district it is a good lengthy ride in to the city centre but still convenient.

The breakfast is excellent at the hotel and if you are into tea- it has the most impressive selection of teas anywhere- it's like Whittards! (Wait didn't they go bust?)

I was speaking at a MALDI-TOF Technology conference in a large auditorium and I found that that staff provided good concierge facilities and knew what they were doing with the sound.

The buffet food was of impressive quality and reflected well on the company who hosted the conference.

Would I stay again? On business yes, might baulk a bit at the price if on personal visit.

Room Tip: I woudl ask for a high up room as the rooms are constructed around the central atria of the hotel mo...

We are currently staying at the Gastwerk Hotel on day 4 of a 6 night stay. We have been very pleased with our choice of hotel. It's in a great location and is very central to many of the sights, the autobahn, etc.

We have an atrium room, which has plenty of room for the 2 of us. The beds are comfortable and are what you would expect in a European hotel. The room also has a nice sized desk, closet with safe and mini bar and the bathroom is small, but functional.

The staff has been great - assisting with questions, responding quickly to a request for an iron and board, and providing timely wake up calls. Even when we arrived early on the day of check-in, they arranged a room for us within 10 mins of arrival.

As others have said, the building architecture is really cool. It just adds to the overall feel and vibe of the hotel. I would highly recommend Gastwerk and we hope we have the opportunity to visit again!

cool building, hotel was adapted to the original structure of the building
spacious room, bathroom very tiny in comparison to the room.
my room was an interior one and the noise from the patio can be disturbing, also a bit dark as no natural light enters through the windows
good breakfast with a good selection of free newspapers

Room Tip: ask for an outside room, there´s no noisy street, the building is in an office area

Dear jkfs111,

Thank you very much for the review given on tripadvisor.

We are sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with your Atrium room. Next time you stay with us, try one of our modern style business loft rooms or a loft room with the very characteristic brick walls.

We look forward to welcoming you back, soon, and thanks again for the feedback.

Stayed two nights at this very beautiful, modern hotel of Hamburg, since it was very close to the offices I was visiting. As many other buildings in this lovely town, the hotel is an old factory which was renovated as a hotel.. That means, at least for my taste, a very modern and stylish hotel, with more than average size rooms, free wifi, lovely lobby and a nice restaurant. My room (184) had a not good view at the building next to the hotel, however even that was adding to the whole experience in a positive way (sounds controversial but... :)

The only negative was the bar experience. During my first visit to Hamburg some months ago, I have stayed at the sister hotel 25h, very close to Gastwerk. Back then we have visited the bar and we have experienced lovely cocktails (I had worked in this field so I can judge pretty fair). This time, I learned that that barman has left the place.. The Mint Julep we have all tried, it was one of the worst cocktails I have ever tried.. Even the beer was not served in the correct way the next night. Pitty for such a lovely place. If you exclude that, I would definitely
suggest the hotel.

Room Tip: If you can avoid the 1st floor most probably you will have a lovely room view
