“Best breakfast, great safe location, great big room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

The room and mattress were ample and comfortable. The bathroom was small but modern and clean. We slept wil the windows open and it was quiet all night. The area is a university town, 1-2 blocks away from the Dammtor train station (hbf). Suggest to try across the street in a basement cafe: the latte and bear claw (this "u" shaped marzipan filled piece of joy). Also, Broderson's for dinner is a must and very economical. Enjoy!

My nephew and I stayed here. The reception is on the second floor - we stayed on the ground. the room was vast and they failed to note we had asked for twin beds (!). Strangely despite all that space, the bathroom was very small. Other rooms looked even bigger. Great breakfast and potentially very good location - unless you are there on a weekend when the Dammtor station is being renovated. This is in a restaurant desert and the restaurant we were recommended by the hotel had the worst service I have ever encountered. Two hours from arrival to our only course being served.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2010

I stayed there several times already. It is located in an old mansion close to Dammtor railway station and the university. The single room they gave me for my first stay was incredibly tiny (its bathromm was larger than the room itself). Since then, I'm paying app. 15 € extra for single use of a double room, which makes it still cheaper than almost all other options closeby. Rooms are individually designed. Windows to the street don't really keep all the noise out. The hotel is not full service - the reception closes at 10 pm - but drinks are available. Breakfast is more than decent for the price. An Espresso machine would be nice, they only offer filtered coffee.WLAN is very good, flat screen TV as well.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2007

This privately owned hotel is located in the ground and second floors of an art noveau house (built in the 1890's) right opposite the university of Hamburg and very close to Dammtor station. The floor in between used to be student housing, but is now empty and converted into another hotel floor. Each room is different, but they all have very high ceilings. Windows are really old with wooden frames and single glazing, and I imagine it could be a problem to heat the room in the winter, because the windows do not shut very tightly. My room (18), a double, was very large and colorful. Red carpet, yellow walls. Furniture seemed to by from IKEA. No desk, just a small, very low table.
Very small bathroom. There is also at least one 4-bed family room on the ground floor.

Beautiful breakfast room and the usual German breakfast selection.

It is not a business hotel, but a very nice change for a traveller from the usual chains.

  • Liked — Location, individual design
  • Disliked — Old and small elevator
