The rooms are very small, with a lot of dust (specially under the bed). Very bad for allergic people. Front desk is really not flexible, asked for 15min delay on my check out but they refused. We had a really bad experience there.More

Welcome to Hotel Central in Hamburg As its name suggests, the Hotel Central enjoys a central location and is well placed for the port, theatres, musicals, shopping and sightseeing. This ideal location - only More 100 m from the Altona (ICE-) train station, 200 m from the popular Ottensen quarter and 1500m from the Cruise Terminal Hamburg-Altona - makes the hotel ideal for city tourists and business travellers alike. The 25 comfortable rooms offer a pleasant and personal atmosphere with comfort at reasonable prices. Free WiFi Internet access is available throughout the hotel and we also have dedicated parking spaces available. Ask our reception staff if you wish to use the Internet terminal, the sauna or bar in our partner hotel next door. Everything is within easy reach of the Hotel Central. The port, Fish Market and Reeperbahn are all easy to reach on foot. You can get to the city centre with its sights and museums in 10 minutes by S-bahn train from Altona station. If you want to see a musical, you can also get there very quickly by train. The lively restaurants and pubs in the Altona-Ottensen district are only a stone's throw away from the hotel. It's also a great place to go shopping or just stroll around. We look forward to welcoming you to the Hotel Central in the exciting Altona-Ottensen district of Hamburg! Less
