We would heartily recommend this hotel. We had just arrived from a long flight from Australia and were exhausted. It was very clean, quiet and had comfortable beds. The breakfast was fantastic and there was a huge array of food. The staff were friendly and helpful.
It is some way out of Hamburg Centre but the train station was close and we could walk there. The only other negative about the area was that there didn't seem to be any restaurants close by which meant we had to get dinner in Hamburg and then travel back later at night.

Room Tip: We had a room on the bottom floor and it was very quiet.

Great change from a chain hotel, with top breakfast and everything in good condition plus friendly staff.
The only downside is the location if you are sightseeing in Hamburg without a car - you have to take the train/bus to everything. We didn't see anything attractive re eating in the vicinity.

In the cost:quality ratio, which is how I review hotels, this one didn't quite measure up for us. Okay, the breakfast counts for a lot -- it was truly wonderful. But we found our room small (which we didn't mind), dark (which we did mind), hot (which we really minded) and overlooking the parking lot. I found the charm of the old school was lost with the total modernization -- and the dark gray paint was part of the problem in the room. Still, a quality modernization and, I said, a lovely breakfast. I should add that if you have a car, the chance for free parking just outside city center is probably a godsend.

This hotel is great. It's a little off the grid but close to two underground stations and bus stop. It has plenty of parking and a couple of supermarkets in close proximity.
The staff are super friendly and helpful and the rooms comfortable and clean. The shower is particularly awesome! The only thing we missed was air conditioning as the room got very hot and didn't cool down very well even with the windows wide open. But this was only a minor inconvenience.
The well equipped bar is very nice, although a little on the expensive side. It's a great spot to enjoy a drink or two before retiring to your room. The free coffee that is on offer all day is an absolutely fabulous touch!
All in all, Hotel Volksschule is a little gem to which we'd happily return.

Building was formerly a school and now converted to a comfortable hotel in the east of Hamburg. Now it is a harmonic mixture of old bricks and new steel. We had a room on the 5th floor with huge windows. Room was very clean, bathroom modern and stylish. Breakfast was included and good. Hotel is located near an underground station so that it's quite easy to get to the center w/o car. Hamburg is a beautiful city and this hotel a great place to start city excursions. We will definitely come back! Hai Anh & Daniel

I found this by chance on the internet and would definitely use it again.
Rooms are basic but clean and spacious.
Staff were all very friendly.
Excellent buffet breakfast.
Overlooked a Lidl carpark, but location very convenient to get into the centre (a few stops on the U-bahn).

We both really liked the old school exterior of the hotel with the old red bricks while at the same time have a very modern and confortable inside.
I can only think of good points for this hotel: good location (5 min away from subway station), free car park, breakfast included, very nice and confortable rooms, lovely and helpful staff.
Would go back anytime if I ever find myself in Hamburg again.
Highly recommended.
