arriving Hamburg: very busy airport - the jasper shuttle to the mainstation has no luggage compartments, so busses are overcrowded. ride takes approx. 25 mins.
the city: wonderful city, harbour area, speicherstadt (spicemuseum), very large modelrailway exhibition worth seeing and off course Reberbahn (either you love it, or hate it). If you want party, stay in St.Pauli. Hamburg is a very laid back city compared to many other German cities. People are friendly and open.
Hotel: I was not lucky about the room. Shoeboxroom with tiny toilet/showerroom (1 x 1,5 meters) - I think this was smaller than the one in BW Alfa Aeropuerto Barcelona - washbasin at the entrance of the room. Not comfortable and a waiste of money. The hotel is located almost next to the mainstation and the etnic quarter of Hamburg. Service was friendly and efficient. You can hear/feel the metro which runs just under the hotel.
Loved Hamburg - hated the room.
