“Clean, comfortable, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Hotel am Rothenbaum is easily accessible to/from the U-Bahn and was easy to find coming from the airport by train. My room was very clean, cozy, comfortable, and warm in the winter. The staff were cheerful and helpful. However, cleaning on my floor began loudly just before 8 AM, a bit too early for me. Also, I tried to adjust the reading lamp and it caused the electricity in the whole room and bathroom to go out; it seemed like the wiring might be unsafe (but they kindly moved me to a larger room at no extra cost). Rothenbaumchaussee, the street the hotel is on, has a few mid-priced restaurants and some coffee shops and bakeries, but there are many more eateries and shops if you walk 10 minutes to the university neighborhood around Grindelallee. There's also an Edeka supermarket conveniently located around the corner from the hotel on Hallerstrasse. At 69 EUR/night, Hotel am Rothenbaum seemed like a great find for Hamburg (price vs location) compared to other lower cost options in the city.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2009

We stayed here for a combination business trip and a little fun. The hotel is only 5 U-bahn stops from the central station and about 20 yards from the stop itself. It is only two stops back the the Rathaus platz and the Alster area... This is a great location to explore the cntral area, the harbor, etc...

The hotal itself is very nice, decent sized rooms, with baths... no AC though, It was about 25C during the day during our stay and the room was comfortable enough.... They have a small restaurant-bar and serve a decent breakfast there with bread, meats, cheeses, jellies, eggs etc... Coffee, tea, espresso as well. Near the restaurant are several restaurants that I did not eat at but were busy... The staff were all cheerful and helpful.... they even gave us an extra room for our daughter enventhough she was supposed to be on a rollaway...

My only complaint is the pillows... they were somewhat pointless and very thin even by German standards...

This is what might be termed a boutique hotel. It's small, and stylishly decorated with the rooms done in a nice colour scheme. I especially liked the curtains, and an apple by the bed is a nice touch. In fact, there are a lot of nice touches, and a great deal of thought and care has been put into the hotel.

The ground floor is more like someone's home than a hotel, with comfortable furniture and a flower and candle in a paper bag on the tables in the dining area. There is also a comfortable lounge area.

Staff are friendly and they extended the opening of the kitchen so that I, and others who came after, could have a late meal. Nice to see they run the hotel for the guests, not themselves. The only minus is that the one man doing breakfast could do with some help, as often tables remain unlaid after someone has left and various things like cups and spoons must sometimes be requested. That shouldn't be necessary. Breakfast though was fine, and they have a small menu for the evening.

As is often the case in Europe rooms are a bit on the small side, but quite adequate. The bathroom was bright and there was no problem with the shower. The rooms facing the main road suffer from traffic noise, and in hot weather keeping the windows open might mean sleepless nights. Even with the window closed the noise was there, although not a major problem.

A U-bahn (subway) station is exactly opposite the hotel, and it is only minutes from the main railway station. I'm booking again.
