After having a disastrous start in Hamburg with the Holiday Inn Express St Pauli-Messe we booked this hotel online 5 minutes before checking in. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and spoke English well, the room was a good size and the place was good value for money. There were a few little touches we found that made it a great stay including leaving little packets of gummy bears on our pillows and having an area to sit in the foyer where you could use the internet for free. The area in the foyer had dishes of chocolate and candy you could help yourself to while using the free internet and they also provided a computer you could use for internet access.
A few people have mentioned they felt a bit unsafe in the area around the hotel. There was one block which felt a tiny bit unsafe but there were always lots of people around and both the hotel and the tourist information office said that it was fine. You just needed to be a bit streetwise and make sure you chose to walk along the main road to get to the station.
Overall I would recommend this hotel as it was close to both the bus and the train station (about 5 minutes walk) and there were quite a lot of places to eat nearby. It was also only about a 10 minute walk into the city. It was good value as well as being comfortable and clean.
