“Good Hotel. Location not fantastic.”
Reviewed 18 August 2010

PROS
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.

CONS
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.

STAFF
The staff I would mainly describe as efficient, not over friendly but certainly nothing to complain about. Just very German I would say.

SUMMARY
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.

Reviewed 4 November 2009

In the middle of an industrial district, convenient if you have meetings there. Very clean, nice rooms. Staff, from reception to restaurant, is very efficient and service minded.
When you leave, you just wish every hotel stay was like this.
My only negative comment: when you ask for LAN connection, there is no wireless; instead, they rent you a connection box to be plugged in the electrical network; for one hour, you have to bring back the cable to the reception, if not they charge the time you keep the cable: a bit strange nowadays...
