“Excellent hotel ideal location”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The hotel has an excellent service, rooms are very nice clean. Beds are comfortable. There is an espresso coffee machine in the room and you can order just fresh bread and a newspaper.
Location is great. Walking distance to the Rathaus place and the lake, walking distance to Hafen city.
In 5 days I never took either public transportation or a taxi.
One thing I would suggest to the reception: get a list of basic information ready for your guests, from a hair salon to a bank. It would be helpful to have.
There is also a washing/dryer machine you can use on your own.
Quiet and with a very nice SPA next door which you can use for free until noon!!!

Madison rooms are great, and location quiet. Short walk to S Bahn goes right to city center. The breakfast also quality. Hamburg has some fine sites, and pretty fun city to walk around. Usually do not care for bus tours but look for those red buses off the main town square. It took us around the large lake-sized river that was well worth the ride.

I dare to say that The Madison is one of best hotels in Europe for business, for short and long term.
Rooms: excellent. Very spacious, sound-proof, illuminated, very nicely and functional decorated, with big desk, good desk-light, very comfortable sofa, king-size bed and pillows, hi-fi system for radio with surround loud speakers, even in bathroom, spacious closets and drawers. Kitchen with glass-ceramic hob, fridge, coffee machine, kettle.
Cleaning: really exceptional. Very professional staff and friendly. Cleaning includes the kitchenette cleaning and the washing-up.
Staff at reception: excellent. Willing to attend you, friendly, skilled.
Spa: excellent facility included in price for use up to midday.
Newspapers available included English newspaper!
Location: excellent, very close to S-bahn, U-bahn, walking distance to port and restaurants.

We stayed at Madison for 2 days during a weekend getaway. Nicely located by the harbour of Hamburg. Our room was in the 1. floor, it was spacious, air conditioned, it had both a kitchenette and a coffee machine, nice bathroom with a large bath tub. Both the room and the hotel in general made a good impression and it was nice and clean. They have a parking cellar (20 € pr. night). From 9-12 you can use the well equipped fitness and spa facilities situated in the same building without a fee. I will stay here again.

This is a lovely hotel. Rooms are well-appointed and spacious. The room had a small "kitchenette" type are with a fridge, small hob, kettle, coffee maker and basic utensils (you can request more if you want). The air conditioning was very effective (a plus point as it was about 33C outside when I stayed). There are nice touches such as the rubber ducks in the bathroom. I am not too bothered about watching TV when away but, if you are, you can switch some of the Sky Deutschland channels to English on the remote control (the sports, Bundesliga, Cinema and Action channels).

The staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially the barman in the hotel bar. The bar has a happy hour for the first couple of hours of opening. The prices seemed reasonable to me for a hotel bar and anyone who thinks that Germany can't make decent wine should the "Eins Zwei Drei Riesling" on offer. You either in the restaurant (Marleys) or bar. Travelling alone, I preferred to eat at the bar; the food was good and reasonably priced.

Unlike some places in Germany the hotel was non-smoking throughout, including the bar (you can of course smoke on the external area of the bar).

I didn't take breakfast in the hotel but, as others have pointed out, there is a bakery right opposite the hotel, which was very pleasant. For practical matters, there is a post box right outside the hotel, u-bahn Baumwall is very close at the bottom of the street and Stadthausbrücke s-bahn is very close too - take the "Herrengraben" exit if leaving this station.

There are lost of Spanish/Portuguese/Brazilain restaurants close to the hotel on Ditmar-Koel Straße and adjacent streets, though I preferred the restaurants/bars on Großneumarkt, also near the hotel. Despite my usual dislike of so-called "Irish" bars abroad, the Irish Rover pub there was very good, and the staff friendly.

All in all, I wouldn't hesistate to recommend this hotel.

Not glamorous with impressive gardens and pools or ocean view like we are used to but there was something very special about our stay! We loved our three day in this hotel and in Hamburg. Quite an impressive town. PLEASE make sure to have a meal at Amber Cafe opposite corner. You will be well surprised as we were. Reasonable and lovely food. Better than even in town centre. The only fault and I am not even sure whether it is part of the hotel is the spa and the attitude and shocked faces when their staff could not understand that we did not want to get naked in front of all of them to use the spa facilities. However we really wanted to swim in the pool and had to give it a skip. Otherwise perfect!

Dear "Honeyontravel",
we are very happy about your great review and that you had such a very special stay with us. That is how it should be! I am very sorry about the behavior of the Spa, but as is it run by a different company we have no influence on their house rules. Nevertheless we want to thank you so much for your "perfect" and the great recommendation. Very best regards - Thomas Kleinertz
