Doubtless a stunning building, the Gastwerk Hotel sets high standards even before you walk through the door. It doesn't meet those standards all the time but the overall package is definitely worth a visit. Located in the west of the city it's easily reached by public transport and not far from the hip parts of this truly stunning city. Reception offers a very professional welcome but, in typical northern German fashion, lacks a little warmth and friendliness to begin with (not to mention the fax that was delayed by 24 hours) only to shine later on. Rooms are spacious if a little bland (#371 and other rooms in that category) but come with modern bathrooms. Housekeeping is flawless but could maybe be a little more generous with things like shower gel or shampoo, especially if guests are staying more than one night. We treated ourselves to an hour in the spa which is beautiful, expertly run and a real oasis of calm thanks to the brilliant staff. Another definite highlight of the place is the outside terrace which we used throughout our stay to soak up the sunshine, have drinks and some nibbles. In fact, the terrace (and the adjoining bar) is managed so brilliantly - friendly, fun, full of personality - it's the team behind the bar that is the main reason for the excellent rating of this place (otherwise it would have scored average to very good).
