A return visit, having previously stayed here in 2010.
The Hotel remains extremely good. The staff were all helpful, attentive and knowledgeable, while the renovated bathroom, with its massive shower, puts many 4* hotels to shame. The room itself could do with an additional bedside table, improved lighting and maybe better storage, but overall it works well. The level of cleanliness through the property is to be commended.
Breakfast is OK, wouldn't say any better. It can be a bit of a bun fight with 160+ rooms, but presumably that's why it is now available between 6.30 and 11.30 every day.
I do laugh at people who complain that HIE isn't right in the City Centre. First of all, put the address into Google maps and check in advance before you book. Secondly, it's only 5 minutes walk to Lubecker Strasse and from there 10 minutes on the U Bahn to Jungfernstieg or Rathaus.
We were checked in within 75 minutes of our plane touching down, the connections from Hamburg Airport are great. Overall, I would recommend this hotel as being well located and decently priced, and wouldn't hesitate in staying there yet again should the occasion arise.
