“Christmas market trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

Barcelo hotel is in a fantastic location,1 block from the Lake, very central to all Christmas markets and a 10 minute walk to the main Town hall, and equal distance to main train station in the opposite direction.we came for the Xmas markets, but all the main shopping stores are here too close by.
Check in was quick, with friendly staff. Room spacious and modern, laminate wood flooring, fridge/mini bar, hair dryer, small desk, a huge walk in shower with liquid soap, in an open plan bathroom with underfloor heating. Not many shelves or hooks though to hang or place personal toiletries.
Breakfast is from 0630-1000. It was super, excellent staff greeting on entry to restaurant ,which is just off the lobby area, and staff keeping on top of things clearing plates, topping up breakfast items. Good selection of cereals, fruit, yogurts, juices, cheese &hams etc. hot items were scrambled eggs, hash browns, tomatoes, sausage and bacon, and were steaming hot. Very good if you have breakfast included in your room rate, but I'm not sure I would pay the €22 if it wasn't included!
Wifi free in the room, but it keeps logging you out, and slow to reconnect.
Would recommend staying here, I enjoyed it and would come again.

Very clean modern rooms. Restaurant very good with straightforward menu amd very high quality food. Best Bar staff out of everywhere I go in Germany.

Location is a bit weird and feels like it's in the middle of nowhere but it's actually quite Central.

Not cheap but definitely worth the money.

Ideal for a solo business trip

Highly recommended.

The hotel was placed in a quiet region about 5-10 minutes taxi ride from the lively town area. The entrance is very modern and pleasant to look at. The reception and check in was quick and efficient. There were 3 lifts to the floors which were a tad slow but decent sized. I was on the second floor room 2007. The room was well laid out and comfortable. Very modern with a serious walk in shower that formed a dividing wall between the living area and bathing area via a glass wall which was tastefully done. The room was well equipped with beverage making facility hair dryer, safe, i-pod / i-phone 4 docking point large flat screen TV and a very comfortable bed! I slept very well and was refreshed in the morning. We did not use the restaurant as I thought that the cost for breakfast was a tad excessive so we ate in a local cafe! The bar was hotel prices as usual a beer and a coke costing 8 plus euro's. The car park was also quite expensive as it was 20 euros a night. My room rate was 115 euros advanced booking rate. I would stay here again with no hesitation as the whole experience was very pleasant. Be careful if it has been raining when you walk into reception as the floor is very slippy if you have wet shoes, I saw two people slip over!

Room Tip: Not a tall hotel so could not say whether a higher floor would afford you a better view I was happy...

Stayed here on a short business trip. The stylish, clean & more modern look might not appeal to everyone but I found it refreshing. So many hotel rooms have exactly the same layout. At the Barcelo things just look pleasingly different. Professional and friendly staff and a great location too.

Have just returned from a couple of nights staying at the Barceló in Hamburg. It is a lovely hotel, with friendly, professional staff. Nice modern interior, with clean high quality bedrooms. Free wifi available in the bedrooms which is always a bonus. Fantastic location for exploring Hamburg centre. Food available in the hotel is very nice and quite reasonably priced for a city centre hotel. Overall would definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay here again if I returned to Hamburg.

I went to this Hotel with one colleague and two of our customers (construction company in the building sector). Easy to find, fairly fast check in and very modern, clean and nice rooms. Rather "unorthodox" planning of the room but I really liked it. Good with parking garage under the hotel! Very nice breakfast but a really high price for that (more than 20€ per person)!
I will absolutely go back to this fine Hotel
