This is an absolutely terrific little hotel in the central location of Hamburg called Dammtor. I'm very surprised there aren't a lot of glowing reviews of the Alameda on Trip Advisor, but it seems that people tend to flock to the more heavily reviewed hotels. Pity, because the Alameda is a budget hotel worth every euro.
This place is clean and well run, with the nicest, kindest owner I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The bathrooms are close to brand new, so everything is shiny and well maintained. The beds are comfortable, and though my single room was on the small side, there was still space for a desk, chair, tv, and armoire. It didn't feel too small or too congested. My wife and daughter shared the larger, double room next door, but the price was the same. I guess the owner just took a liking to us. Go figure. We had two rooms for four nights and the cost was 525 euros. I'd be surprised if you could find a place that cheap that is nearly as good.
Keep in mind that the Alameda is in Hamburg central, and easily accessible to everything. It is on a pedestrian street that is very quiet, yet right in the heart of town. 50 steps away, if that, is the U1 subway, which connects you to the rest of the city, and makes the trip to the airport very, very quick and simple. Alster Lake is a pleasant 2 block walk away.
Breakfast is included, but I never ate it, because we got into the habit of eating a couple of doors down at one of three or four coffee spots on the block. There are also some excellent, not too expensive restaurants a minute away.
I'd really like to include some criticisms of the Alameda, to show balance in my review, but I can't think of any. Ok, it's not fancy. And the elevator is quite small, allowing only one person and a few pieces of luggage to go up the one floor to the rooms.
If you cannot afford the high cost of a luxury hotel, the Alameda is an honest, clean, quiet and comfortable alternative that puts you right in the middle of one of my favorite cities in Europe.
