The hotel is centrally located right next to Hamburg Central Train Station and Hamburg Central Bus Station, so, the location is both its strength and its downfall. It is an ideal base for travelling on public transport around Hamburg and further afield, but it is noisy - one morning we were woken by a bagpipe busker playing under our window. A 5-minute walk will take you to the 'posh end of town' - Mönckebergstraße, with it's high-end shops and boutiques. Hamburg centre and its neo-Gothic Rathaus are just 15 to 20 minutes walk away. The area around the hotel is convenient not only because of access to public transport, but also because it is populated with numerous Turkish shops and kebab places, which means you can have a drink and buy food when most of the rest of the city is closed. It is a short journey on the underground to the city's most famous quarter - St. Pauli.
The hotel is an old building, so the rooms have fabulously high ceilings and a grand staircase, although the interior would benefit from an upgrade. The view from our room was good, considering the location, and we had a great view of the Hamburg Art and Design Museum. The hotel is clean and the receptionists were helpful, albeit somewhat dour. The breakfast wasn't bad, with a limited range of hot and cold foods served as a buffet. The dining room is used for breakfast only. The room was clean and large, the beds were firm and comfortable, although the bathroom was rather small. The hotel offered very reasonable rates, which is a reflection of its location rather than the hotel itself.
If you're not looking for luxury, but want a convenient location and good transport links, you will be hard pressed to find anywhere better!
