I am still at this Hotel and have to say it was a good booking. The staff are so friendly and the room is a good size for a single occupant room, very clean and tidy. Although I had some disturbance from noise of what sounded like music, as I love the sound of traffic which my room os on... More

Great downtown location and friendly staff! Room also OK, but unfortunately the beds are not good for my body. Breakfst average. All in all I was happy to find a place in the area at a very busy weekend.

Clean and tidy, huge room with beautiful breakfast of high quality food. The Art Deco style of the hotel was like stepping back in time. We got parked over the road so we could see the car from the hotel. The late check out time made for a relaxing morning. We had a room at the back of the hotel... More

I stayed at Alster Hof Hotel in July. It was quite warm and the hotel offered no air conditioning. Apart from this, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. My room rate was much less than I expected, and this included a buffet breakfast, which was excellent. The location of the hotel was amazing. The hotel was near Hamburg University, the... More

The hotel is very well situated, within walking distance from the lower Alster and beyond it the old city, and very close to buses, Ubahn and S-bahn stations. Breakfast had a big variety of items, most cold, but also scrambled eggs and sussages. The only unpleasnat surprise that we had was that there was no airconditioning and, unfortunately for us,...

The Alsterhof is a typical 3 star German hotel, well furnished, a little threadbare in places, but everything works, is clean and well maintained; the bedroom good, the bathroom excellent, the view from the window non existent. Breakfast was generous with a wide selection of breads, meats, berries, juices eggs etc. The location on the Alster is good. An interesting... More

I stayed here recently for a week and was very pleased. I was a little concerned about the wifi situation I had read in repeated reviews for this hotel, but I'm happy to report it would appear to be all sorted out, as I had free wifi with no problems for my entire stay. I had booked a single room... More

I had to spend a night in that known hotel. The location is not bad. It is close to the centre passing the famous river Alster on the way. The reception staff is one of the assets of the house - very friendly and helpful. But the room was smoky which wasn't addressed on check in. The interior was a... More

With 4 city visits a year we find Trip Advisor rarely wrong. The Alster-Hof is no exception. E-mails pre-trip were promptly answered. From airport its a e90 cab ride so take the 30/40 minute Metro. Easy directions with one change then a 5 minute walk to hotel. Natives are helpful with directions( in English of course). Buy tickets at airport... More

I booked the hotel online on the basis of price and location (10 minutes walk from the central railway station and 2 minutes from the U-bahn and buses at Stevensplatz.)
