This is probably the best hotel I stayed in while traveling through Europe for many years now. I don't care for fancy accommodations and I am never in the hotel, only to sleep. However, this place is just amazing! The moment you walk in, it is very clean and staff is most helpful! The room is very spacious and very...

To get to this hotel from the airport or city centre is definitly requires a metro. The good thing is that there are trains every 5 minuets to its closest metro stop (Altona) about a 5 minuet walk away from the hotel.

Great location for accessing the U-Bahn, hassle and fuss free no frills stay in Hamburg with a decent breakfast thrown in for good measure. If you're after a low budget, value for money stay in a dorm type hotel, then you can't go wrong with this.

Really sorry to say that the hotel is really at the limit of acceptability. Young guys shouting, poor in general and in these days very expensive (185 €) per night. Maybe is perfect for student but not for business. Of course you can sleep if you are tired but I would not recommend. And price whatever it is the reason...

Dear Guest, thank you for being honest. We are always trying to keep the price down, but we also have to keep some rules of competition. You probably stayed in trade fair times. The concept of Meininger is a mix of Hotels and Hostel. We´re trying to keep the noise down and since a few weeks we have a proper...
