This is a fairly new hotel on the outskirts of Hamburg, built of wood and very eco-friendly. The design is a little quirky, with minimalist concrete and ducting mixed with tree branches and boughs, but overall the public areas are fine. They sell local specialities as well. The rooms are wood-clad, with a lot of natural wood furnishing, and I am not sure if it is ll this wood acting as a noise damper or the fact that the hotel is in a quiet area, but inside the room there is not a sound to be heard! It really is silent, which is a good aid for sleeping of course. The bathroom is well designed and supplied. The restaurant/bar area is fine to sit in for a while, the kitchen if decent (I have a lovely steak with very good accompaniments), good beer and excellent professional and friendly staff. For a 3* hotel this really has a lot going for it and I will gladly return.
