The Hotel Cristobal is a small, comfortable hotel in the charming Winterhude section of Hamburg. It is located on a quiet street, convenient to the Alster lake for recreation, a short bus ride (nr. 6) to the centre for shopping, main train station etc. We were there to visit my son and daughter-in-law who live around the corner - very convenient for us - but even if we had been tourists, it was a great location.
The hotel receptionist was friendly with a genuine welcome, check-in as about uncomplicated as it gets, and our 3rd floor room small but comfortable with a free reliable wifi and a decent sized bathroom. Being just off the centre has advantages: a very quiet night's sleep. Unlike some better hotels, the lighting is more than adequate for reading. One very small caveat: breakfast is not free. This used to be a given in German hotels but is becoming less common.
This small matter aside, Cristobal offers that rarity: genuine value without any obvious compromises.
