If you’re looking for the thrill of staying in former whorehouse the “Village” is a good choice.
The hotel is situated in the second red light district of Hamburg (St. Georg) amongst [--] shops and snack bars. The kitsch interior still reminds one on the whorehouse period (mirrors on the ceiling, carpet on the floor, lots of plush). Service is o.k.. The only reason not to stay there again might be the poor quality of our bed and the lack of a lift.

Nice hotel, in an sleecy (lots of sex hops and peep shows) but not dangerous area in the centre of the city. The atmosphere is "red pluche" and the staff is nice. Rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. Nice basis for going out ans having fun!

Reviewed 18 March 2007

A really nice hotel, 95% close to the description I had: an old brothel turned into a hotel, near the main train station and in the middle of the St Georg gay area of Hamburg (the missing 5% goes to the closet from Lidl that didn't really belong to the room).

Beautifull decoration and the mirror above the bed was a nice touch.

Lively location. You can get something to eat or go for a drink all day and almost all night long.

Polite staff, small but nice cold breakfast buffet, served until 11:00 (12:00 on weekends).

Big minus: no elevator, so climbing to the 4th floor with your luggage isn't exactly fun. Get a room with a bathroom inside, not next to it or one floor up.

  • Liked — Old brothel converted to a hotel
  • Disliked — No elevator

My husband and I went on a three and a half week vacation this summer through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, and Poland. We chose Hotel Village in Hamburg because Fodor's guidebook said it was an "'in' place where celebrities hide out when they want to keep a low profile". I think Fodor's may have been at the wrong hotel. This was the worst place that we stayed. We are not super-picky when it comes to hotels, so with that in mind, I felt uncomfortable and unsafe staying at the Hotel Village. It was close to central Hamburg, which was nice, but it was on a street FULL of peep show joints and sketchy sex stores. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY NOT come here with children. Our room was about the size of our bathroom at home and was badly furnished, and was not worth the $100 or so that we paid for it. The hotel staff was, however, friendly and accomodating and offered suggestions for things to do/places to eat. For the same price, I would stay at the Baseler Hof, which is in a more convenient location, nicer area, and seemed lovely from the exterior.
