A typical Holiday Inn Express hotel well located close to the St Pauli part of Hamburg and not very far from the city center The breakfast is well served although the place is quite busy. What can definitively be improved is for sure the quality of the bed and especially the mattress! If you have a light sleep, take a... More

Rooms were slightly small but very good value for money and well equipped. No ironing board in the room but they were happy to lend... More

Stayed here for one night as a stopover while driving from Sweden to the UK. In that sense this hotel does the job - it's basic, clean, decent value, it's in a good central location with good access by road. The staff were helpful and professional and the breakfast was much like you'd find in any other such hotel. One... More

A room, a bed and a bathroom is what you get. No restaurant in hotel, so arriving late evening in the rain was not convenient. There is a breakfast room, but nothing special. German hotel standards are high, so a 1 star in Germany is a 3 star in many other European countires. But this is still a 1 star... More

Our first visit to Hamburg, and a bit apprehensive about booking this place as it's near the Reeperbahn and there had been mixed reviews - in the end, those concerns were blown away. Very friendly and helpful staff. Small but very clean and functional room. Lovely continental breakfast that was available for much longer than expected. We arrived after a... More

I needed to be near Hamburg exhibition hall and thought that I can't really go wrong with a Holiday Inn Express. It was "ok" but I won't be going back and I WILL be looking for somewhere else next time. The service was apathetic, I asked for a shower cap and was told they don't have any and there was... More

Clean, functional hotel that is typical of a Holiday Inn Express. Close to many attractions. I would stay here again if in Hamburg for a weekend. Good amount of parking on site for people with cars and near public transit for those without.
