Having grown up in Hamburg I once in a while return and stay at a hotel. And wow ... the city has changed the last 25 years. The area where the hotel is always has been very central in walking distance to the "Alster", Opera and main shopping areas. But the road was not one of those you one would have wanted to pass alone at night at that time. Complete change ... modern, buildings, renovated or wramped up, cosy, great shops around.
The hotel is modern and inviting, every staff member will greet you with a smile, ask if they can help. Lobby is inviting, the restaurant/bar offers some straight forward snacks - but with style. The room was well equipped and spacious, have seen for the first time "no minibar" in the room. At check in staff does mention and refer to the vending machine next to reception. Not sure this is a great idea.
Parking is available, but a public one offering direct access to the hotel. Charges of 28 Euro a day is an impressive lot. As the room rate generally seems to excludes breakfast a night will not turn as cheap as one might think at the end. But if you walk around the corner, you'll find some bakeries that might not offer a rich buffet breakfast - but "breakfast basics" that serves my needs well.
Overall I would summarise: Great place to stay, would return do recommend. Just be aware of your budget.
