Stayed for 2 nights over a weekend.
The location is good for visiting Hamburg - 8 minute walk to the U-Bahn station, the about 15 minutes on the U-Bahn - means you pay less for the hotel but still close enough to the action. There's underground parking and local buses pass by.
The reception staff speak just enough English to check you in.
2 lifts - expect some delays for lifts at busy times.
Room is good value and fair size. No aircon, so on hot nights you'll need to have the windows open (and pick up some noise from the nearby motorway). Old CRT style television. Loads of electric points. Fridge in room (supplied empty so you can add your own stuff).
Bathroom is a fair size. They provide wall mounted shower gel/hand soap dispenser. Towels are normal by German standards, small by international standards!
There is a bistro style restaurant on the ground floor and there's numerous eating options 3 minutes along the road in the big Billstedt shopping mall (stock up at the grocery store). Breakfast was included in our room rate - served buffet style in the ground floor breakfast room. Very wide spread of continental breakfast goodies... breads, rolls, yoghurts, spreads, tinned fruit, cold meats, cheeses, fruit juices, teas & coffees.
Biggest drawback was lack of Wifi/WLAN in the rooms ... there is an access point in reception - and apparently the signal reaches some rooms on the 1st/2nd floor - but we were up on 6. Even then, the access point in reception belongs to Deutsche Telekom/TMobile and is chargeable.
