I stayed at the Baseler Hof for 2 nights on a business trip, and stayed one further night in a private capacity to see a bit of the city. The hotel is very clean and decently appointed – I don’t recognise some of the earlier descriptions below so I’m assuming it’s had a facelift recently. The internet policy has also changed, as I had unlimited WiFi as well as the PC in the lobby (complete with printer, which allowed me to print out boarding passes for my flight home). The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the little touch of remembering your name after you’ve checked in makes it feel more warm and welcoming than the at times austere coldness of international chains.
My double room was spacious and very clean, and although it did face the front I have to confess I had no problem with street noise as others have complained of, but I may not be as light a sleeper! There was also good selection at breakfast (one thing I did note was that breakfast ran till 1100, for those who like a nice lie in!)
Location wise it’s ideal, just off the Alster and within 10 minutes’ walk of the old town. The transport hubs of Dammtor and Hauptbanhof (and the city bus terminal) are within walking distance, and Jungfernstieg U-bahn/S-bahn station is very close by with direct link to the airport with the S1 line. The hotel does also give you a pass for the public transport system that is valid on all S-bahn, U-bahn, bus AND Hadag ferry services within Hamburg – including the S1 back to the airport, so it’s very handy indeed. (If you are here as a tourist, or even on business and have time, take the 62 Ferry down the Elbe rather than a harbour tour!). Out of the hotel front door and a hundred yards or so to the left is a pedestrian street that has some very nice restaurants around.
Another nice little touch was the little map in the room highlighting some good running routes from the hotel.
All in all, I found it very pleasant and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again on any return visit.
