I went to hamburg in december with my partner, found this budget hotel in Altona hamburg.To tell you the truth it was the cheapest in hamburg and we were on a budget. Stayed at hotel central for 2 nights and with hamburg being extremely cold even more so than London the room just refused to get warm. I was cold to a point where i could not sleep after being out all night on the reeperbahn (not as seedy as previous reviews said, the redlight district in amsterdam is more seedy) enjoying the city. When we arrived at the hotel yes!! you have to pick the key up next door at the best western rafael but it was fine had no problems there. The room is small but fine if you are on a budget.
I asked for the non smoking room and to warn you it is on the 4th floor, last floor up with no lift so my boyfriend and i had to carry our luggage up the flight of stairs, not a great experience. However the room apart from being cold which my boyfriend didn't mind as much as i did, it was extremely clean bathroom, towels and bed sheets so i was happy in that respect.
Hamburg is a great city to visit it was my first time and i love it and would go back oh the christmas markets and the hot wine!! Public transport is much easier than in berlin to get used to only 2 stops to the reeperbahn and the fishmarket which you have to visit if you are in hamburg on a sunday morning and go early. I had the most amazing time at the fishmarket drinking beer before 12.
The best selling point for the hotel is the location right next to the train station Altona with lots of fastfood restaurants around with a big shopping mall. Do not forget to try 'BOK' the chinese/korean restaurant next to burger king the food is the best noodles and rice i vegetables i have tasted at a chinese restaurant. Try the sweet and sour fish great!!!!
