We booked this hotel for our wedding anniversary trip, we don't spend a lot of time in the rooms so the budget for this was spot on. It is directly opposite the main train station so you only have to walk about 50 metres. Reception staff on arrival were nice and friendly and gave us a the free three day travel pass which is a nice little extra. The room we had was spotless and ok size wise. No air con, but I knew that anyway, but no fan or any other way to cool the room. It was absolutely red hot which meant we had to have all the windows open. This in turn meant it was very noisy, even when we had a fair bit to drink we were awake from 6am! The hotel need to address this and put at least one fan in every room. Other than this it is excellent. Didn't have breakfast there but it would have been €13 each. We had a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting in the room which was a nice touch - thank you.
There is a block house restaurant right next door which was nice. And the bar to the other side Paulaners, was spot on with a happy hour on cocktails bet 5pm and 7pm every day.
Walk straight through the train station, which has lots of fast food places (24hr McDonald's) to grab a bite, and you're onto the main shopping streets. There are loads of shops and nice bars / places and it is a very nice city. We walked for miles on end around the shops, lakes and down to the harbour. Prices around the city are ok, about €3.70 for a large beer. Taxi to the Reeperbahn or the Hamburger Dom from the hotel is about €10, but easy walkable if that's your thing. I would stay here again.....if they buy some fans!!!!!
