Ibis Hamburg Alster Centrum
Ranked #86 of 322 Hotels in Hamburg
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed 7 August 2013

LOCATION:
A quiet but pleasant area (the hotel is opposite the 5-star Atlantic Kempinski hotel) in spite of being just 5 minutes walk from the main railway station, which itself is just 20 minutes by S-bahn from the airport.
Just 10 minutes from many good looking restaurants and bars in the St Georg district on Lange Reihe.
The world famous Kunsthalle art gallery is also just 5 minutes away.
The hotel is just 2 minutes from the lakeside where there is a very pleasant open air bar on a jetty on the lake.
10-15 minute walk into the centre of Hamburg although there is U and S-bahn at the railway station.

ROOMS:
Simple clean newly decorated room - good air conditioning (it was the height of summer when I visited).
No frills so no free wifi, coffee making etc.
Comfortable bed

SERVICE:
Had very little to do with the staff and I never ate at the hotel but they seemed pleasant and helpful enough.

FACILITIES:
Free wifi in the lobby area only.
No gym or pool.

Ibis Alster is not the fanciest hotel Hamburg, but offers good valuefor your money. Rooms are clean, staff friendly and location is good: it's located nearby the central railway station so you can reach the shopping streets and central attracttions by walking.

I was impressed!!
I booked this hotel with AMEROPA (which allows you to book train and hotel together... so far great experience).
ROOM
I got my room around 12 noon. The room I requested was single, however when I got in, I was surprised to see that the bed is double and the room not at all small compared to other hotels.
It is calm and has a view on the garden.
BREAKFAST
I was also surprised that the quality of food is very high and there was a wide choice as well.
PERSONNEL and SERVICE
Very friendly and ready to help you at any time.
ATMOSPHERE
Very cozy atmosphere. Decoration is nice.
LOCATION
7-8min walk to the city center/ 5min from central station
PRICE QUALITY
Excellent.

I can recommend this hotel for everyone. A great experience will be waiting for you there!

We stayed for 2 nights in May 13. We found the location to be excellent (and only a short walk from the train station), and the rooms to be standard European hotel rooms - nothing much to say about them really. Free wifi is available in the lobby.
We thought the price was far too high, but we were staying during the Harbour Birthday celebrations, so we probably had to pay an exceptionally high price.
We didn't pay even more to have breakfast at the hotel, as there is a huge amount of choice, at reasonable prices, available at the railway station.

Typical Ibis Hotel with clean beds and bathroom. The location is a short walk from the Central Station and not far from the Alster.
The service is ok but when I arrived very late at night, the lady at reception was certainly not in a rush to get me a room key and let me go to bed. In the morning at 8am, which is a busy time, someone was hoovering the entrance. A bit silly when everyone is trying to get in and out of the hotel with luggage.

130 euro is a lot for a room with a bed and bathroom but seems not unreasonable for Hamburg

This hotel is a typical Ibis hotel located about 5 min walk to the main train station in Hamburg. It is on a side street so there is not much noise. The wi-fi is free in the lobby and they have a restaurant for breakfast. The rooms are basic and the beds are acceptable. Nothing spectacular but nothing outstanding. The check-in process was fine but upon check-out, the staff was a little off-putting. I didn't even receive a final bill which I thought was odd. I would stay here again if in the area just based on the location close to the train station. Just remember that you get what you pay for.

Very clean, neat and good service hotel. I just don't think it can get a Very Good rating from me, as it was pretty basic. It was everything that I needed but the room was a bit on the small side, and it was pretty noisy in the mornings, once the cleaners had arrived. You could hear everything they were doing in the corridors. Else it was a nice Budget hotel, and the location was just perfect, with just a 4 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof.
