I have used this hotel a few times whilst on business trips and it is a good modern hotel with a great rustic nautical theme; it's in quite a good location which whilst in Hafen CIty is away from the main town centre, there are a god few restaurants around and a supermarket just around the corner. It probably a 30 min walk to Hardrock cafe along the waterfront too.
The hotel has some great features - a music room and apple computers for guest use on the first floor - although this is used for functions sometimes so when such things are on, if you're not involved in the functions, make sure you get a room on a different floor as it can be noisy.
It also has free wifi which is very useful but as with a number of hotels I have been to in Hamburg, the speed is painfully slow so don't plan on downloading a film from iTunes - the one I tried said it was going to take 9 hours!
Finally, the Heimat saturation downstairs is great; the evening menu is reasonably limited but the variety is just sufficient although each time I go, I normally end up having the burger as it is probably one of the best burgers I have had (perhaps I don't get out much:-). Equally, the breakfast is very good with a great selection; bacon, sausage, eggs, continental meats, croissants, fruit, juice, a couple of types of coffee, cereals etc - it isn't overly cheap, though what good hotel breakfast is.
My only gripe about this hotel, which is actually the same as another hotel I've been to in Hamburg I that the towels tend to cause some kind of allergic reaction - I guess washed in a detergent I'm not used to, so I now take my own.
