Reviewed 5 October 2008

My friend and I were on a day break in Hamburg from the train station.. we were not staying the night in Hamburg but had just had an awful experience on the over night train from Paris to Hamburg and we desperately needed a room to rejuvinate in. We went to the tourist info office in the train station and they booked the room for us directly across the street from the Train Station.. Which worked out wonderfully since we had a ton of large luggage. The front desk was so amazingly nice, the room was clean.. beds were not the most comfortable but the hotel was clean, the front desk was beyond helpful, the breakfast was great, and I can not even tell you how much we needed that room. WE loved that hotel and will stay there again should we ever go back to Hamburg. The day staff and evening staff were very helpful and friendly. Made phone calls to get information for us. Great, Great, Hotel!

Stayed at Fuerst Bismarck for one night in july. I have stayed there for years since the 80's. It is close to the Hauptbahnhof and the Center of Hamburg. It has what you need with big bathrooms and very clean rooms. The rooms needs a good AC though.

This hotel is just between the bus station and the subway.
It's walking distance to the harbour area but if you want to go to Reperbahn you will have to take a taxi.
The hotel has a good location for a lot of the sight seeing spots.
Room was clean and nice. Breakfast OK. The staff could have been a little friendlier. Over all worth the money.

This hotel is located opposite the main railway station and is a convenient base if you are planning day trips out of Hamburg by train. The airport bus stops opposite the hotel. Our room was basic but clean (no air conditioning though) and there was a good choice of food at breakfast. The hotel's main downfall are the staff on the reception desk, most of whom would benefit from customer-care training.

This hotel was booked through hotels(--), reservation confirmed by visa card and a message sent to advise of arrival time of 21.00 to 22.00 (we arrived at 21.30). I had booked 3 rooms but was told on arrival as we had not arrived before 14.00 they had reserved the right to sell on the rooms and only left 1 reservation. We ended up having 2 rooms between 3 of us (they managed to find another room). The staff were completely indifferent and unconcerned about the problem.

Breakfast was very indifferent and the whole place seemed to be completely disorganised with no one having a clue about what they were doing, it is a shambles. The 3 star rating makes a complete mockery of such ratings. If this review saves someone else the problems that I had then it has been worthwhile writing it

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in june. I just walked in from the street without having a reservation and got the last room they had for 73€ a night incl breakfast. The location is good just opposite the Central Station a few steps away from the city center.

My room was on the second floor, just around the corner from the very noisy Kirchenallee with many bars, restaurants and heavy traffic day and night. This together with the heat wawe (it was 31 celsius), an incredibly uncomfortable bed and no air condition made it almost impossible to sleep at night. If I opened the window it was very noisy and if I closed it it was unbelievably hot. The bathroom was ok, clean and well equipped. There was no refrigerator or minibar so you could not keep cold drinks in the room. However, a soft drink machine was placed on the first floor where it was possible to buy cold and very expensive sodas and mineral water. A very strange thing about this hotel was that the staff at the reception seemed very uninterested. They never smiled or made a friendly comment when you passed them. They just handed over the room key while they continued to talk on the phone or talking to someone else of the staff behind the desk. If there is something positive to say it is that the breakfast buffet is good with eggs, fresh fruit, many different kinds of bread and juice.

I have stayed in this hotel several times in the past but that was many years ago. Today I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are many hotels in Hamburg for the same price that gives a lot more value for your money. 3 stars is a joke.
