When considering the Monopol you have to fully aware of its location. It is bang in the middle of the Reeperbahn, which for those who don't know, is lined with bars, sex shops, dancing bars along with a few hotels as well as Burger King, MacDonald’s and other fast food joints. Basically Party Central.
If you want a hotel to enjoy a quite weekend in Hamburg then don't choose this place. If you want a hotel that is right in the heart of the action, then I would have no reservations recommending this place.
Its only 3 euros from the airport via train and then 400yds walk from the nearest station or about 20-25 euros in a taxi.
I booked this hotel for a group of 35 people and we had various twin and triple rooms. Breakfast was included which was mainly a cold continental affair but with the addition of some scrambled and fried eggs. The bonus was that it was served right up to 11am, with checkout a very generous midday too.
When booking a large group I would certainly recommend that you make the booking direct with the hotel and NOT go through a website. I booked direct and only had to "reserve" rooms, which meant I could make changes to the room numbers right up to the day before we travelled. Which was brilliant as I had two people pull out of the trip the week before we went and Doris on reception let me change the booking without charge, she was amazingly helpful all weekend. As I’d only made reservations, I didn't have to pay until we left, so only paid for what rooms we'd used.
The hotel itself was very clean. The bedrooms were on the small side, but adequate as we only used them for sleeping in. The bathroom looked nearly new and was very clean too, the shower was nice and hot as well.
We were on the 4th floor with a window facing the Reeperbahn and there was no getting away from the noise from below, even at 3am. But as I said at the top of the review, you have to understand where the hotel is located.
For a group of you looking to party on the Reeperbahn, then this is the place for you, no question.
