Stayed here in december with my wife and thoroughly loved it.Very convenient to find, we took the S 1 train from the airport at a cost of only 2.80 euros each changing at Ohlsdorf onto the U1 underground and getting off at Stephansplatz,from there it was only a short walk across the road to the hotel.We had a large comfortable room on the third floor with the bathroom area screened of by sliding doors with another pair of inner sliding glass sliding doors protecting the modesty of shower and toilet users.Initially the rooom was cold as we had not noticed the radiators were off with that rectified the rooms was very warm.The room came complete with mini bar but no tea and coffee facilities .There was also a free safe.For those tourists who can not live without tv there was satellite tv with a multitude of foreign channels including itv and bbc.Interestingly the itv channel was easterly based with local news stories about Cambridge.
Breakfasts were very good, though as other correspondents (who evidently have a different hot breakfast every day at home) have noted the hot food was always scrambled egg,bacon and boiled eggs however one can not complain when there is such a vast array of fruits,yoghurts,cereals,cooked meats,cheeses and pates together with a good selection of breads and pastries.
The hotel is ideally placed for a short walk into the centre where one can visit the lakeside christmas market and the one next to the Rathaus.Also the STADRUNDFAHRT double decker bus city tour can be boarded immediately outside the hotel though if you do that you will find yourself waiting at the train station for half an hour for it to resume.
Another great way to see the city is on the free walking tour which sets off from Starbucks opposite the town hall.On this tour you obviosly discover things you would only know with the most detailed guide book.We were kept fully entertained by our English guide Kim who it turned out was a singer songwriter plying her trade in Hamburg looking for that break that happened to the Beatles.All in all avery good hotel to choose
