“Very Satisfied: December 2013”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

I stayed in this hotel in December 2013. Having read the other reviews I was unsure what to expect. My expectations were far exceeded. The hotel is right opposite the train station, about 100m into St Georg. Very easy to find. The location is good as the proximity to the station means travel to any location in the city is easy, even for a very poor German speaker like myself.

When I stayed at the hotel, it was very full with lots of families and retired people. The breakfast was very acceptable given it was included in the price.

I was in a single room on the 5th floor, in the new part of the hotel. The room was adequately sized and spotlessly clean. The bath room was small but well decorated and also very clean. The room had a flat screen tv and comfortable bed. My room was opposite the lift the other reviews mention, but I could hardly hear anything.

The staff all spoke English and ranged from mostly helpful to extremely helpful.

It is true that round the corner at Steindamm the area is pretty grubby and there are working girls, but if you stay in this hotel you dont have to go down there. I only went there looking for a mobile phone shop. The hotel can be easily used as a base only, which is what I did. Even closer than Steindamm are decent restaurants etc.

In my opinion, this hotel is perfect for those wanting to stay somewhere that does not cost the earth and have reasonable expectations.

Overall very satisfied for the price and would stay again.

This hotel is about 100 metres from the central rail station in Hamburg and thus provides a nice easy and cheap route from the airport rather than paying taxi fare. 1.95 euros each, a bargain compared to what I usually pay! Hamburg is a really nice city. The part that the hotel is in is not the most pretty, it's close top the railway station and no matter where you go in the world that usually means it attracts a few beggars and working ladies. Having said that there was no real noise outside and I did not feel threatened once and I think generally Hamburg is a very safe place to be. The room was small, the shower room/ WC very small and the lift even smaller. It was spotlessly clean however and well maintained. Breakfast was good, 95% continental but with scrambled eggs every day (plain or with ham). Staff were very helpful - if you want to find somewhere they'll give you a map and mark on where you need to go (i.e. rail station). The location (nightlife aside) was good, about half a mile to the Rathaus and the other Christmas markets, good shops bars and cafes. A good trip and on balance the shortcomings of the hotel and area are evened out by the accessible distance from the attractions.

Room Tip: Get a room above the "comfort" level; I'm sure that will be much bigger

Hotel Eleazar Novum is close to Hamburg Central Station (Hamburg Hauptbahnhof)and very easy to find. Get out of the station to the eastern side and pass the parked cars and look over to the other side of Kirchenallee and you will see Hotel Bismarck on the corner of a small street, which is Bremer Reihe where Hotel Eleazar Novum is situated a block away.

The hotel is quite easy accessible, just two small steps from the pavement at the entrance. I doubt through that a wheel chair would get into the lift.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff in the reception were really helpful and friendly. I also met the cleaning lady, a charming woman from Ghana.

My singel room at the top floor was spotlessly clean and equipped with two cupboards, writing table with table lamp, TV and a safe box. (You pay a deposit at the reception to get the safe key.)The free wifi worked fine during all my stay.

The tiled bathroom in light colours was quite spacious but the wash basin was minimal, the kind you normally find in cramped toilets.

The breakfast restaurant on the first floor was nicely furnished and had enough walking space to get your breakfast even when fully seated. The breakfast contained fresh fruit, youghurt, cottage cheese, cornflaces, muessli, bread, butter,coffe, tea, juices, brie, 3 kinds of sliced cheese, german dried ham and another 6 kinds of ham and sausages. The cold buffet was complemented with boiled eggs and scrambled eggs.

I do recommend this hotel and I would certainly stay here if I return to Hamburg.

Easy walk from train station. Nice welcome from staff. Hotel very secure. Room small but ok. Window overlooks street below where there were working woman on the corner opposite. Street was very noisy all night. Yelling and bottles smashing. Even with window closed it was really loud. Found it very hard to sleep.
No tea/coffee making facilities.
Bathroom has a towel warmer which is great for drying your clothes on.
Breakfast was very good with a great selection of hot and cold food.
We ate every night at the train station as it has a food hall with great choices. Also has supermarket. Only 5 minutes back to hotel.

The GOOD
Basic/average hotel
Clean rooms
Nice bathroom
Location is 5 minutes from Hamburg Hauptbahnhof

The BAD
Rooms have VERY thin walls
The beds are of very poor quality and very low down, AVOID this hotel if you have a bad back.
NO breakfast included (additional E7.50)
The lift start 10-15 steps up so if you have a heavy suitcase, forget it, you have to carry it upstairs to get to the lift!
Speaking of THE LIFT - A rattly, clunking, neck jarring, noisy lift - not something i've seen even in the poorest continents.

Had to ask to move rooms due to the ridiculous noise of the hotel lift, which was clunking away all night! after a phone call to reception by my girlfriend, they advised all rooms were booked. When i went down to the reception with a face of thunder, they phoned the manager and things were suddenly different, we were moved to another room, slightly better and away from the lift. (not quite sure why they lied for initially)

The UGLY
Centered in what seems to be a low key red light district area - prostitutes hang around the shops trawling for trade from 9am onwards, despite this area is safe.

Rating would probably be a 2.5 as there are no half marks im going to round it down.
NOT worth the money in my opinion

Room Tip: AVOID rooms next to the lift!
