“Slow check in!”
Reviewed 9 May 2007

InterCity hotels are normally good and this one probably was as well. We tried it on spec. on Easter Monday. Big mistake. Although the one guy on the desk eventually tried to help us, he kept on trying to serve other guests who arrived later than us as well, with the result that we made no progress. Not what one expects from this chain, now part of the Steigenberger group.
So we left him to it and found another, less busy hotel instead. It was probably more expensive, but at least we could get in quickly and without feeling like fools.

stayed at the inter city hotel for 2 nights from 18th august, booked a twin room. Our check in was extremely efficient, room was very nice and found hotel clean throughout.
Our room overlooked the main train station which is at the back of the hotel, this could be noisy for some people but my friend and i had no problem.
we walked to the famous reeperbahn both evenings which was about 10 to 15 minutes leisurly strole.
i would definitely recommend this hotel, being cheap, cheerful and central.

Conveniently located hotel in Hamburg in a nice area. Rooms well equipped and functional, but without air conditioning. Watch out in the middle weeks of the summer. The room was extremely hot, and with the window open, extremely noisy. Apparently not many places in Hamburg have air conditioning, since the summer is very short... The hotel key acts as a ticket for the public transportation system during your stay, which is very convenient and a great added value, especially with the buses and S bahn trains right outside the door.

We stayed there for two nights. The intercity is a good, clean, no frills hotel. Our room was clean and bright and overlooked platform 12. Only the lightest sleeper would be disturbed as the sound proofing was very effective. To make sure I would ask for an inward facing room. Breakfast was excellent and served until 11. We stepped out of the hotel lobby onto the train to Berlin - many intercity trains start at Altona. There is a frequent S bahn service to most of Hamburg.

Good location meaning right in the train station of Altona with next door access to the subway. I didn't notice the noise at all (sound-insulated rooms). Breakfast was great and filled with German food. Stayed there for 1 night and would definitely stay there again if I went back to Hamburg. Room and bathroom was clean. The room door was a little hard to open though. They have small weird door knobs that you need to turn all the way with the key inserted. Overall, a good stay.
