This was a city break and for a friend's wedding whose reception was at the hotel.
This is very good hotel placed conveniently for airport in leafy suburb, although more catering for the business/conference market. Rooms were modern, clean, spacious and comfortable, although some were quite a hike from either reception or the breakfast room (elderly may need help with heavy cases). Breakfast was excellent, but 10Euros extra - the room overlooks a small leafy inner garden. Hotel has a bar with lounge but the restaurant (although entered from the reception area) is separately managed and bills cannot be transferred to the room account. The restaurant is excellent (asparagus in season is a speciality) with a good choice. Their catering for the wedding reception was faultless. The location can not be described as "city centre" - it is 15mins out by tube (Hagendeel, about 800m away); or about 30 mins by bus (service 5 at the end of the road). Neither are particularly inconvenient; both take you into the centre of Hamburg. An all-day travel ticket for up to 5 people is under 10Euros in total. Excellent value for sightseeing. Hotel & restaurant take all credit/debit cards. Taxi from airport (by far the easiest way) is about 15 Euros (inc tip). All round a good stay and we would certainly come back.
