“Super hotel with excellent staff and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2008

Arrived at the hotel at 9.30am hoping to be able to drop off our bags, and were told that if we can wait 5 minutes (and have some free breakfast), we can check into our room then! So we had some breakfast and checked into the hotel at 9.45am. Not sure if this is normal but it was just great service.

The staff were brilliant, very friendly, cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was great, room was large and tidy. We were on the ground floor which was perfect.

Would definitely recommend this hotel at the price. Think we paid just under 100 Euro per night in mid-December for Christmas markets time, which is pretty good.

This little hotel was a fabulous find. It is very well located near the central Hamburg train station. Return trip back and forth from the Hamburg airport to Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (central train station) is only 8 Euro roundtrip (5 Euro one-way).

I paid 51 Euro per night for a room without a bathroom. The shared bathroom was mine alone for the entirety of my stay. So I appreciated saving the 20-30 Euro per night by not having an en suite bathroom. There is a small vanity and sink in the 2 rooms that do not have en suite bathroom.

The hotel is extremely gay friendly and extremely welcoming to gay and lesbian travelers. In fact, there were several staying there during my stay. Front desk staff are very friendly and welcoming. Everyone I interacted with was very helpful and welcoming.

The breakfast buffet was perfect with a selection of breads, cheeses, meats, muesli, other cereals, yogurt, and fruit. There is an amazing backyard patio that is cozy and private that is ideal to sit outside in while having your breakfast. Or sit inside if the weather is a bit nippy.

The room was very clean. Linen and duvet were clean and ideal.

There is free Wi-Fi internet service, which was very fast.

I can't rave enough about this hotel. It's not a Ritz Carlton but for 51 Euro a night, I can't imagine a better value for the money anywhere.

This is my accommodation of choice for future stays to Hamburg. Two thumbs up!

Pros: Central location, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast buffet, very nice and clean shared toilets/showers

Cons: Rooms could use a fresh paint job; I switched rooms because the first one they gave me reeked of smoke and the bed was terribly soft. Some of the rooms face the street which can be quite noisy at night. Also, while convenient, the neighborhood is a bit seedy, including the walk to the Hauptbahnhof.

I stayed at the Hotel Konigshof the night of May 24, 2007. The hotel is located a five minute walk from the main train station. The neighborhood is the red light district and although it didn't seem dangerous it was annoying to be harrassed by prostitutes as I came and went from the hotel. The hotel itself is clean and well taken care from the lobby to the breakfast room to the guest rooms. The staff at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. I had a room with a private bath but were I to return I would not hesitate to stay in one of the rooms that are slightly cheaper and have shared baths. The italian restaurant downstairs from the hotel has good food and the woman who runs it was very nice and helpful when I ordered as I do not speak German.
The breakfast buffet is included in the hotel room price and it was very good. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again if I were to return to Hamburg.

Hotel Konigshof was a great find. The rooms are nicely decorated, quiet and are very comfortable. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served most of the morning and is very good. There is a small cafe onsite that is ok. It has pleasant outdoor seating in the back. I wish all hotels I encounter while traveling were this nice! If I make it to Hamburg again, I would book there without considering other options.

To put it simply...we loved it.

The hotel is conveniently located near the central train and bus stations with easy access to Hamburg's public transit system.

We arrived to a very warm welcome. The staff was very helpful and offered some great restaurant and sightseeing tips. We really enjoyed the friendly and informal atmosphere (more like a B&B than a hotel).

Our room was nicely furnished and quite comfortable, including a couple of extra welcoming touches. The small room was that, although we had ample space.

Breakfast included the typical selection of meats, cheeses, cereal, bread and a few pastries with juice and coffee. The food was good and plentiful.

  • Liked — The welcoming staff
  • Disliked — The neighborhood is a bit "iffy"
  • Tips/Secrets — The hotel's website has a good booking options

My wife and I stayed for one night in Jul 2006. We might have been the only straight people in the place. But don't let that stop you: This is a GREAT place to stay. Extremely helpful staff, small but comfortable rooms. Excellent full breakfast (German style). Colourful, tastefully decorated. Great location - 10-minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof - though you do have to walk through a slightly seedy area. A small price to pay for a fabulous hotel. (very reasonably priced too)

  • Liked — Bright and colourful
  • Disliked — Close to a seedy area of town
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay here
