This is an exceptionally well appointed hotel, modern and shining new. It is in a quiet system of side streets but extremely close to the main shopping centre of Hamburg, within walking distance from the main rail station, and handy to great restaurants and bars, and a short block from the beautiful lake Binenalster. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, quiet and soothingly neutral in colours of grey, black and beige. The buffet breakfast is outstanding (if a bit pricey) with a great range of choices. An outstanding feature of the hotel is the lighting design, both in the public areas and in the guest rooms. A beautiful hotel at prices which are very reasonable for the location and standard of comfort and convenience.

Barcelo Hamburg is my home is Hamburg. Reasonably priced, excellent value for money. Staff is super friendly and willing to help constantly. Restaurant has a really good menu. Location is perfect. I love the whole design and lay out of the hotel overall, it creates a lovely contemporary feel throughout the entire hotel. Only comment would be that breakfast at EUR 25 is a bit much, (quality of it is outstanding though).

Room Tip: If you don't want a full breakfast you can opt for an express version which is perfectly accepta...

First of all, great bed and great pillows. We stayed here for a few days and it was really nice. Spacious, hip and clean. What I didn't like were the food prices, with that I mainly mean the breakfast. That however seems to be going around in German hotels. Other than that the view (right across an office building) did not amaze me.

Verdict; For a few days that you mainly spend outside exploring the city, this is a great place to come 'home'to at night.

Walking distance away from one of the biggest shopping centre, from central station, but on quiet street
Modern hotel with excellent service, it's one of the best hotels we've ever stayed, but agree with other reviewers who said that breakfast was overpriced
We definitely will be back there

Recently opened (March 2013) and very well located as others mentioned. The price was reasonable in a period where many hotels were busier and rooms available exceeded 220€. Not here since I paid less than 125€ per night. As it is unfortunately often the case in Europe, breakfast buffet prices are steep at 22€ pp but in line with other similar hotels in Hamburg (not as varied). Service was polite but did lack efficiency (15+ min for check-in, credit card system problems at check-out).
Not the most confortable setup for working in your room between meetings. Minibar charges are outrageous (3€ for a small bottle of water) and the Internet was very slow and kept kicking my devices out, so I had to re-log in very often.
Bartender needs training...
Minor irritants that will hopefully be resolved.

Hotel is situated one block away from the Alster and some 5 blocks away from Hamburg's busy central station which makes it an ideal location for a city break. The hotel itself is a haven of modern design and comfort.

Staff is efficient, and checking in or out is done within a matter of seconds - the lobby and the restaurant all ooze a mod vibe, however we did not got to trying the restaurant. On the downside, the hotel breakfast is quite expensive, and in an area full of coffee shops and bakeries is thus best avoided.

The rooms are nothing short of stunning - modern and comfortable, with a glass-enclosed in-room shower. The star of the room however is the bed, which is likely the best bed I ever laid my head on; large and comfortable. We especially liked the selection of different pillows to choose from.

arriving by train from Berlin we were able to walk to hotel from train station about 5-10 min walk. On arrival were we made feel very welcome, once checked in we were shown to our room and the air conditioner didn't work so we were moved to another room - all good. Room very nice but not alot of room to put 2 cases, good sized shower, toilet very cosy, small mini bar, tea/coffee. Free WIFI in room. Breakfast there was a lot to choose from. Hotel very close to the water, a lovely area to take an evening stroll.
