My rating for this hotel should really be a 4, this is a very modern hotel and everything seems very new. The rooms are spacious, well designed and well decorated. A very relaxing space. The location is equally very good, very close to the Alster lake, a large shopping centre and many cafés. Overall this is a very good hotel. My only gripe is that breakfast is 22€ each.

TWENTY-TWO EUROS EACH!!!! I need £40 for two of us to have breakfast?!? Just for this the hotel goes from a rating of 4 to 3!

We recently went to Hamburg for a 4 night city break and stayed at the Barcelo hotel. It is a lovely hotel and our room was very spacious. If you go you should check out the fab chairs in reception and the flames. Not a fire but a cool effect! The bed was really comfortable and although we had air con we had the window open at night just for some fresh air. There was no street noise and was realy quiet. Saying that the hotel is well situated for all the sights. The only down thing was the cost of the breakfast which is 22 euros each! We did not have breakfast but don't let this put you off the hotel. If you turn left as you come out of the hotel just a couple of minutes walk is a lovely cafe on the corner where we have breakfast each day. It is a designer hotel but is very cool and the staff are really friendly. Would recommend a stay here if you go to Hamburg : )

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor (Rm 520) and although at the front of the hotel it was very quiet.

I would definelty come back to the Barcelo hotel. The hotel is clean, rooms are nice and the front desk staff are always there to help.

The rooms are very much like the Novotel rooms. Simple, clean and has all the basics that you need. The beds are very comfy and the pillows are wonderful. There is tea and coffee in the room (always an essential).

The front desk staff are very helpful. They are not over friendly, but maybe that's just the German way.

The bar area is very nice as they have a small terrace to have drinks on. The service at the bar and restaurant is very slow. The restaurant is worse, there were only 3 people eating in the restaurant and it took so long to be served. The staff were never in the restaurant, so when it came to me wanting the cheque, I was waiting 20 minutes for her to make an appearance from the kitchen.

I was happy to find out that this hotel had a gym. I only had 3 machines but its better than nothing. The only problem is that when I arrived there were already 2 people in the gym. So we had to keep sharing eveythjng ( very annoying). They should change the gym to a bigger room and put more equipment in.

The hotel is very central and a 4 minute walk to shops. There are restraunts and cafes everywhere.

All in all a wonderful stay.

Just back from a 4 day city break to Hamburg. Reception staff on arrival at The Barcelo were not very welcoming. After requesting a quiet room, we were given a room close to the very noisy lift. We mentioned this the following morning, and were moved to a quieter room on a higher floor. We learned that many guests had experienced this problem. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was first class. We will return to Hamburg, but probably choose a different hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you are well away from the lift!

Very well located, super modern, a fantastic giantsize bed and the best pillows ever. Room is spacious and well designed with huge flatscreen and very good walk-in shower. Breakfast is expensive, but plenty opportunities to take that outside.
All in all great place to stay.

We stayed in a Deluxe room (room 819) for two nights after a trip on the QM2. After having considered Le Meridien very seriously, I'm pleased I went for the Barcelo, as it was better located and far better value.

PROS:

Great central location (for everything!)

Exceptional value

Comfortable beds

Brilliant shower

Light, bright, stylish room

Polite staff

CONS:

Temperamental WI-FI

Room design may not suit sharers (open plan bathroom)

If you are not under a budget, this place is just great. It is minutes walk from Hamburg hbf, it’s got great size rooms, great service, super fast internet, and just about everything you need in a hotel near the HBF. My only two improvements as to why I’m giving 4 stars is the price and also the price of the breakfast. Seriously, 20 Euros?
