Das Smolka is in a very very charming neighborhood, which really sets the tone for feeling as though you're not a tourist. There are beautiful shops and plenty of delicious restaurants nearby. There are two subway stops very close by too, which make access to anything very simple.
We stayed in room 14, which had an elegant design. Everything is new and spotless. I was constantly in awe of how much attention was paid to the rooms since the lobby is quite small and not a good indicator of how nice the rooms are. I was also impressed with how spotless things were. Our arrival was before check in time and they were nice enough to offer our room, which really helped us out.
My only small complaint is that our room did not have air conditioning. It wasn't uncomfortable, just something to note. It does have black out style curtains, which really cut the summer heat if left closed during the day.
We had a bit of an issue at the restaurant on the corner with the open cafe. We waited for service for over 10 minutes and once they took our drink orders they told us they didn't think we'd be able to finish them in the 30 minutes before they closed. Therefore, we did visit the bar inside Smolka. It's very small, but nice. It has a distinct library feeling and the bartender was very attentive without being in our faces.
When we return to Hamburg I'd definitely like to stay here again. It's a charming place in a fantastic location.
Also - the hotel has free wireless internet, which worked great. A safe, a mini fridge, and nice electronics - a flat screen TV and a stereo. They have parking and a restaurant, however we didn't use either of those.
