I stayed at this hotel very often during the period of 2012-2013. I believe that I spent more than 50 nights. The location is one of the best in town right next to the famous Reeperbahn, just a quick walk away from the fair grounds and a quick subway access into the center of the town. And best hidden gem in town, a sand beach just 15 min walk away. The location suits both business as well as leisure.
The hotel staff are very knowledgeable in the area's services and events happening around. Also they are very helpful, friendly and professional. The rooms are clean and in good condition. The prices are very convenient, although in fair season they tend to go up a notch or two.
Will definitely return there then next time in Hamburg.

this is an " outstanding " hotel , we arrived by taxi , and were immediately greeted by the very friendly and helpful staff , our rooms were to the front of the hotel overlooking the main street , the rooms were very spacious and had all the mod cons available including a safe , the meals were of a typical high German standard as was the breakfast , which was a very very continental style , try the Bavarian meat loaf " different class " . the walk to the Reeperbahn is a few minutes away , during the day its o k if you have children , but at night its a very different place ! . Hamburg is a very pleasant place , very friendly and most people there spoke English , if your in a small group you can buy a " small group ticket " , that entitles you to travel from hamburg to Kiel , if you do go to kiel , try to visit la Boe , this is a very beautiful holiday resort overlooking the Denmark straight , the u boat memorial is situated there and a real German w w 2 u boat , the u 996 , for a few euros you can go on board the u boat , but be warned the u boat memorial across from the u boat is a challenge , you need a head for heights ! . back to hamburg ! , traveling down the river Elbe is again cheaper if you buy a card , the staff at our hotel gave us all the information especially " Michael " . i fully recommend this this hotel for both families and small groups . there are so many things to see and do in Hamburg , use the green harbour taxis to travel up and down the river Elbe , again ask the staff at reception where to purchase the cards , eating in hamburg can be expensive , try the back streets , there just as good to eat as the big ones at the front , also if your a bier drinker as i am you cant get a pint ! , only small biers ! , but in the holiday inn express , you can ! . honestly ! , great hotel ! , great staff ! , highly recommended ! . cant wait to go back ! , kind regards , steiner david .

Room Tip: all rooms are of the usual high German standard , keep the windows at the front of the hotel closed...

A typical Holiday Inn express in a ideal location to enjoy Hamburg night life. We had a two night stay, Saturday and Sunday in September. St Pauli is the night life centre of Hamburg just to the west of the city centre easily walkable or 5 minutes by U bahn. The hotel is very busy at a weekend but not just the province of younger males so actually more civilised than might be imagined! The hotel itself is in a quiet street with and Ibis opposite and a more upmarket hotel to one side just 2 streets back from the Reeperbahn.

All in all a great value stay in an excellent location in a city whose hotels are mainly expensive and business orientated

Room Tip: ask for a room at the rear

I have just returned from a 2 night stay with friends. The hotel has a great location if you plan to visit the Reeperbahn area and St Pauli. It is close enough (5 minute walk) but as it is one road over from the bars, clubs and restaurants, it is in a quiet location. The rooms are clean and comfortable plus they have a safe. Breakfast was great, lots of choice, better than your average continental fare. Staff very friendly and really helpful. It only took about 30 minutes to reach hotel from the airport on the metro with just one change and it was only €3. It also within walking distance on the circus and St Pauli FC football ground.

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express, with smaller rooms. Adequate and very clean. The two complaints I have are related to the television and the internet services. I understand I was in Germany, but the only English channels were CNN, BBC and MSNBC. There were over 200 channels available, and it would have been nice to have at least one movie or general purpose channel and a sports channel with English. They charge 5 Euros per day for the WI FI, and it is miserable. Difficult to connect to, drops out all the time and low strength. For this reason, I doubt I would return to this hotel, as my business requires pretty constant availability of a good WIFI signal

Room Tip: I was at one of the far end rooms, and this could have been part of the WIFI problem
