Good rooms - the hotel is currently going through a refurbishment and whilst the older rooms are absolutely fine, the newer ones are better still!. There is a large flat screen TV but for me, as an English speaker with no German there are, regrettably, only 2 TV channels to choose from - BBC world news and CNN :-( The beds are comfortable but have single duvets and there is either one huge pillow or one tiny one - I take my own if I remember! The bathrooms are fine and are equipped with a hairdryer. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Overall I like the rooms as they're well furnished and comfortable.
Breakfast - the buffet is really good, especially for a hotel of this size, with a choice that must surely suit every westerner! It's very good value too.
Fitness - there's an adequate gym with 3 CV machines and some weights machines.
Restaurant & bar - the food is nice and there's a small menu for the bar or a larger choice in the restaurant.
Location - for work purposes this hotel is ideal as I can walk to work. As a tourist I would not be so impressed as it's in an industrial area. There is a bus stop pretty much outside the hotel but I've never ventured on to the public transport here! The cost of a taxi into the city centre at night is around 20 Euros.
Noise - the hotel is located on a fairly busy road and although the traffic dies down at night, there is a large fire station nearby so the sirens can blare out. I always ask for a quieter room at the back of the hotel.
The staff I would mainly describe as efficient, not over friendly but certainly nothing to complain about. Just very German I would say.
I stay at the Boettcherhof for business. For this purpose, it's difficult to fault. I like it and would recommend it as long as you don't mind the fact it's not in the centre of Hamburg.
