“Modern, clean, central”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Simple, modern, clean and good size rooms close to Gaensemarkt (central). Rooms have wodden floor, wgich gives it a cleaner feel, as these usually smelly carpets in hotels. Breakfast is simple and fine for something quick, but could do with a bit more love and care. Elevator is very creative (diver in deep see coming up!), but very unpleasent feeling.
Would definitely use Scandic again.

This is a very unusual hotel. as it is ikea-like a low-cost sustainable approach (only local products, no toiletries, no room service - a small 24h shop instead). Very unusual but really enjoyable. Breakfast was really great.

We stayed one night to celebrate my wife's birthday. Therefore I asked for their best room and we got it:-) It was a big lovely room with all facilities. The staff was very polite, helpful and serviceminded. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant. My wife being an vegetarian, we asked what our option was, as there are no vegetarian main course on the menu. The chef went to work and presented a delicious meal:-)
We will definetly come back.

Based on excellent TripAdvisor reviews, we chose to stay at the Scandic for a short trip to Hamburg. It was an excellent choice and also great value when booked in advance.

Check-in was friendly and quick and we were pleased to find our room was a little bit different to other chain hotels (with nice features such as a recycling bin, massive bed, and clever layout). It was also very quiet so we slept particularly well here. The location is excellent for tourists, being close to all train services and a short walk to the nice area around the Rathaus.

As our first experience of the Scandic brand, we were very impressed and would select the brand again for its subtle quirkiness and good value.

This was our second stay at Scandic Emporio Hamburg and we were again very happy with it: great room with nice views towards City Hall, St. Michaelis Church and the new Philharmonic Hall, very spacious and clean. Hardwood floors, free wifi, free bottle of water - no closet, though. The room was absolutely quiet.

Front desk and restaurant staff were friendly and helpful.

The breakfast situation may not appeal to everyone: you have to get plates, cups and even cutlery yourself. The restaurant has an IKEA cantine feel to it and is very crowdy with larger groups at peak hours. That said, the culinary offerings are bountiful; egg dishes are made to order.

The location is very good: only a 10-minute-walk to Dammtor railway station, 5 minutes to Gänsemarkt and the pedestrian shopping zone. A subway station is also close by.

Would stay again without hesitation.

We stayed at the Scandic Emporio in Hamburg for a weekend break to visit the Christmas markets. The hotel is very well located for central Hamburg and the markets. The whole hotel is of a very high standard – the furnishings are modern and all areas were very clean. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Our room was immaculate and extremely comfortable – I had some of the best nights’ sleep there I have ever had in a hotel!

Unfortunately, the hotel restaurant doesn’t quite live up to expectations. On our first night there, we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant and were offered the choice of buffet or a la carte. The waiting staff encouraged us to opt for the buffet, which we duly did. This was priced at an expensive 36 euros per person. The range of food was extremely limited (not what we’d expected of a buffet) and, although nice enough, wasn’t of a good enough quality to warrant that price. Although the menu had advertised various meat options for the main course, there only seemed to be gammon available and not very good quality either. To accompany the meat, the options were cabbage, potatoes and more potatoes. When we each ordered a glass of wine, we were only poured a half measure so had to ask to be topped up! A glass of mulled wine should have been included in the price of the buffet, but this never materialised. The next two nights of our stay, we ate out at other local restaurants, which were much more reasonably priced, with better choice and quality.

On balance, we had a great weekend and were very happy and comfortable in the hotel, but regretted choosing to eat in the hotel restaurant on the first night.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your honest feedback. It helps us to optimize our service.

We are very sorry to hear that you didn´t enjoy our buffet. The four Fridays before Christmas we offer a traditional Scandinavian buffet. This buffet is called JuleBord and includes a lot of different sorts of fish and typical vegetables from Scandinavia, but little meat.
So, it wasn´t a good recommendation from our waiter, if you don´t like fish. We apologize for our waiter not having passed on this information and that you didn´t get our homemade mulled wine.

We hope that you visit our hotel and restaurant again to try the delicious dishes from our menu.

Best regards,

Very modern, very clean, a bit different than most other hotels. First of all, they have a large parking garage, with wide lanes, so you won't damage your car getting in and out. The staff at the reception is most friendly and helpful, exactly as they should be.
Nice and clean rooms, with all modern features that you expect in this range of hotels. What I do miss, is a feeling of Scandic warmth, a "cosy" atmosphere.
The restaurant in the hotel, H2O, is good, but the menu is a bit limited. They are brave: the first restaurant I have been in in any western country that does not serve Coca Cola or Pepsi, but a local cola. Not bad either, to be honest. All in all a nice and comfortable experience, excellent for business trips, but not for private visits, I guess.
