The location of the hotel is in the St. Pauli district, parallel to the once "infamous" Reeperbahn. The hotel is quite modern, easy access to the city center by walking or by public transportation. We stayed two nights at this hotel, the room we had is the exact copy of the Holiday Inn at Dresden City Center, I guess they had the same interior designer. The room is very small, there is just one table and an office chair, no extra cabinet to put your luggages and no chair where the second guest can sit, relax and watch tv.
The airconditioning was not working in our room, we called the front desk and somebody came to the room to check, after a while, he told us that a/c is actually not individually climate control, but it is controlled centrally and it is located on the roof top, so the airconditioning unit works according to the temperature on the roof top, if the roof top temperature is low, then the heater will be automatically turned on. This is one of the weirdest things I have ever heard. It was hot and humid when we were in Hamburg, although it was raining, the temperature and humidity were unbearable. Since the climate control was not working properly, we asked them to opened the window (it was locked for safety reason?). However we couldn't have a good night sleep because the 2nd night, there was a party going on in the courtyard and it was really annoying loud, the people were chatting and laughing so loud, inconsiderate of the other guests in the hotel.
There are lots of places to eat. I can recommend the Man Wah Dim Sum restaurant located at the Reeperbahn, it's one of the best Chinese restaurants that I have ever eaten, they serve authentic Cantonese cuisine, the service is excellent and fast. Don't miss this restaurant, you'll love it, that is if you enjoy Chinese food, if not, you still have lots of other choices, but no guarantee if they are good or bad...
Just in case the management of this hotel read this review: Please put at least an extra chair in those rooms that have just one office chair, your guests surely want to sit and watch tv on a chair and not in a bed, and a foldable chair for the luggage, it is very inconvenient and very stressful for senior citizens to bend down to get things out of the luggage, because the luggages can just be put on the floor since there is no alternative. Have a heart for the seniors and partially disabled guests please!
