I picked this one because it was a best western and close to Altona station. The room was clean and up to the standard but extremely small. the TV was put close to the ceiling so unless laying on the bed you couldn't actually see it.
the bed was comfortable. the two low pillows combined made for a decent mid-height pillow.
my room was facing the street so it could be noisy in the morning and rush hours. If trains bother you then you could have a problem hearing them at night, but it was not really an issue for me.
internet present but very weak in the room. So weak only the laptop would pick the signal. the iphone and ipad would work only at the reception.
well connected to the city with the S-Bahn ad Altona and the many buses. Several good bars and restaurants nearby within 5 minute walk.
If you are in the city for a short stay a good option and relatively cheap.
