“Enjoyed the Location”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

This hotel was fine. The location was great, just round the corner from Altona Station.Altona is a busy area with many shops, cafes bars and restaurants, some might find it a little "rough and ready" in parts, there seems to be a fair few homeless around, and some colourful characters but this doesn't bother us. There are shops and eateries (including Mc Donald's, Burger King etc. ) in the station complex, many which seemed to stay open until midnight which was very handy. There is also a very cheap Lidl supermarket. On the corner of the road where the hotel is, there is a huge and extremely busy Turkish restaurant, the food was good and very reasonable, although they do not serve alcohol. The hotel itself was fine. Check-in was at the Best Western next door, the hotels are linked together .The staff on the front desk were friendly and helpful. The room itself was nothing fancy but a reasonable size and clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable.Altona is a very central area,only two stops from Reeperbhan and a few stops from the City Centre,Would stay here again.

Altona HBF Station is very near to Cental Hotel - just 2 minutes away. Very convenient!! Getting to Hamburg HBF Station takes up to 10 minutes by S-Bahn or U-Bahn train. The room was nice yet the price is reasonable. I will come back to this hotel again.

ideal location, made transfer from airport very easy, straight on underground approximately 30 minute ride to Altona Station, no need to change trains (2 euros 85). Hotel on a fairly quiet street adjacent to main Alton train Station. We had a room to rear so can not comment on any noise from station.
Room very basic but very clean and very comfy bed. The room had a safe but it appeared to cost one Euro to open it every time as such did not use it. Room had no fridge and just a shower.
Did not eat breakfast at hotel instead went to cafe's of which there were plenty in area.
Would definitely use again

Room Tip: Choose room to reaer

really close to Altona train station which is a main station in Hamburg, all the long distance trains stop there. Close to S bhan and U bhan too. Comfortable and clean and close to the shops. No lift so make sure you can get up and down stairs.

Room Tip: book train ticket to Hamburg Altona not Hamburg Main

2 minutes walk from altona train station, there you can take s-bahn.

you have to make the check in at the main hotel (best western) next door.

internet is free, room are realy clean, comfortable bed.

my only negative point is the shower (a bit small).

We stayed here 1 night for a concert and a bit of sightseeing. It's right next to Altona train station which is very convenient. We had a room on the top floor of the building next door to the main hotel. Stairs are small and it gets narrow. The door to our room opens out to the hall, but this is self explanatory upon entering the room. Its compact. Bed is comfortable but only one person can move around the room at the time.

Good forthose on a budget and who will be out all day/night.
There is some nice restaurants around teh corner opposite the train station, the italian was very nice. Neighborhood is fine at night from our experience.
