“Excellent location, spotless room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

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!!!!!

Located just across the street from the Central Station, easy to get around in the city from this location.
The room was nice, comfy and clean. However it was no cooling and we stayed there during a really hot period. A bit noise from the street during night, but earplugs made us be able to sleep. Breakfast was good, and the staff in the breakfast area was helpful and nice.
We can not say the same about the ladies in the front desk/reception, they would have good use of a few weeks training in how to smile and handle the guest. Luckily for the hotel, the guys working in the front desk saved the allover impression.

It is a nice hotel, close to everything you need. I stayed there for two nights - and would stay there again. You pay extra for breakfast - a good choice for 13 euros. You can have wifi for 2 euros for 24 hours.

As others have said, this hotel is ideally located very close to the main station with its major rail connections and to the underground train system. You can get anywhere in the city in a short time. What we did not realise, until we read about nearby attractions in the hotel's booklet in the room, is that the Arts and Design museum is close by- indeed, no more than 3 minutes walk! This is one of the finest museuns of it kind in the world and must not be missed. There are also many restaurants close by. The hotel itself is quiet and very clean and comfortable, with friendly staff - what more do you want?

Room Tip: Many of the rooms are in the main extension which is OK unless you have heavy suitcases because a fe...

Stayed in a Comfort Room for two nights. Unbeatable location, just right in front of the Central Station. Like in many other major cities, the central train station is a convenient, busy location but also can be a rough neighborhood. But once you step inside the hotel, it seems you enter a totally different world. What a contrast ! The hotel is unbelievably quiet, well kept and clean. We had to carry our luggage along a corridor and take several steps and two lifts to reach our room at the back, but our room was very nicely decorated and quiet. Every time we left the hotel, we had to leave our key at the front desk, which was good because we knew our room would be well looked after. The free transport tickets was a huge plus. Breakfast was also good and we were very pleased with our stay. Only a little down side - the wi-fi connection wasn't very stable although we had to pay 2 euros for it per day.

Perfectly located walking distance from central train station. Overpriced if you look at room quality and services, but location compensate this.
Sleep for a night - late arrival and early departure by train - you can't find nothing more suitable.
Don't expect anything else.
Room is clean, streets of course are noisy.
Helpful staff - very fast service, as it must be.
Definitely will choose again as transfer hotel to/from train arrival.

We arrived at the Central Station with no hotel room since the one we booked gave me grief before I even arrived. So we walked across the street to this hotel and the receptionist was so nice and accommodating. The room was very clean and overlooked the train station but it was still quiet. The room was a bit small but pretty. The internet did not work in the room but we were there for just one night.
