The Radisson Blu is located on TOP of the airport parking deck. I wandered for half an hour before I figured this out. GPS was no help, since it kept saying hotel was feet away. It never occurred to me it was ABOVE my head!
When you exit the S-Bahn in the Hamburg Airport rail station, take the elevator up to the highest level. Do not get out at street level. Hotel is at the top of the parking deck.
If you are at street level, look away from the airport arrivals/departures and towards the parking deck. You will see an elevator in the parking deck. Take it to the highest level to reach the hotel.
Hotel was very nice, clean, pleasurably crispy starched sheets, and a surprisingly and unexpectedly beautiful bathroom I would be quite happy to have at home. Everything looked brand spanking new in our room.
No airport noise, but if you do get a room next to a service door (we were in 260) be prepared for some kind of odd deep throbbing noise that gently vibrated our bed, and what sounds like an army of small children jumping off a bed on the other side of the wall. I tried pulling out my iPhone and turning on my handy-dandy white-noise app ("Ambiance", would never travel without it again!) but the throbbing was too much even for Ambiance, even though it had proven more than adequate against wild partiers in Budapest and seas of tourists under our window in Prague. We never did figure out what that was, but it was related to the employee only door next to us, and it went on til late into the night. So try to get a room not next to a service door.
It is only a few feet to the terminal, literally across the street-two minutes walk. We took advantage and walked across to McDonald's in the terminal for dinner, since there were no other restaurants nearby other than the hotel's rather expensive and subtly quiet Italian restaurant. We were hot and sweaty from multiple train trips with lots of luggage, and weren't in the mood for stylish.
Staff were pleasant and very helpful.
one last tip- our college age daughter met up with us in Hamburg and return with us. We requested a room with a roll-away bed. It never occurred to us that German (or Hamburg) laws only permit rollaways up to age 14. We had to get a second room for our daughter, because their policy was two guests per room. But they did try to accommodate us and gave us the lowest available rate for the second room.
Next time we are back in Hamburg, for the price and convenience, there is no where else we would stay. Just not in room 260.
