Let´s get this one staright ahead. Even the lowest internet rate is (comparing apples with apples) pretty high for Hamburg. But you get something back.
Location: Very clsoe to the Reeperbahn, if you are with kids do not take the direct walk, turn left at the exit and the next left again it avoids one of the nastier areas. Very short walk to Landungsbrücken and Alter Elbtunnel so two other major attractions are close by.
Rooms: Decorated in a very modern way so not a lot of stuffing and pictures but they do the job. Beds are tha standard double bed and the minibar is very well stuffed (but expensive of course) the one big minor is the bath where there is no separation between the shower and the rest of the room so after a shower the bath is partly wet.
If air sucks in via the door a towel will do the trick. Of course the rooms with the nice views are more expensive.
Staff: Only a routine encounter at the reception so noothing to comment upon here.
One positive is the bar on the 20th floor which offers an excellent view over the harbour area but then again it shows in the prices for the drinks. Pretty well trained stuff and a good menu.
