“Decent 3star hotel”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Just had 3 nights at the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. It was fantastically located, just a 15 seconds walk across the road into the Central Station. The staff were very pleasant and spoke English comfortably. The breakfast was fine and the bathrooms were more than acceptable. The only downside was that the beds were pretty uncomfortable and been so close to the Central Station, there was a fair bit of noise from time to time but not wholly uncomfortable.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

Location couldn't have been more convenient - tall, narrow, white hotel, directly opposite the front entrance (ie side with the Police Station) of Hamburg's main central station (Hauptbahnhof). Station had great links to the airport (25m journey for 2.95 e) and frequent links to all parts of the city by train or bus. Staff friendly and helpful, stayed in double room No 112, small and quite dark but had a large bathroom, very clean. No air con so too warm overnight. Lift faulty for 6 days we were there so wouldn't have wanted to be on a higher floor. Good choice of cold foods for breakfast with toast and boiled or scambled eggs. Was charged an extra 15 e 'Hamburg tax' on arrival that I wasn't expecting. Free Wi-Fi. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for room with plenty of light and plenty of space around the bed.

Moved on from the neighbouring Hotel Graf, part of the Novum group of hotels and very glad I did. My room was a very good size and well designed with a spacious walk in bathroom, Very, very happy with my room indeed (Room 513 standard room)

Room had nice ligting and alsa in breakfast area. Breakfast itself was "nothing to write home about"

Both Graf and this hotel only had one english channel CNN which was a let down. Intenet was fair. This is my fave hotel in Hamburg near the main line station, better than the Best Western 4 star I stayed in last year and better location,so far.

Room Tip: Room 513 is fairly quiet and very spacious.

The hotel is just across the main station. The sightseeing tours just across the street. It is just another EUROPEAN hotel. I am sure that there are much better and much worst. The room was adequate for 2 people. The shower was perfect. The room was cleaned every. The staff was fine and I say this because I very seldom ask any staff anywhere anything but they seem nice. When we checked out I was surprised when the guy that did the check out , told us that we owe €14 for beers and some other beverages from the fridge in the lobby but that was a mistake that someone in the hotel made so I didn't paid it. The breakfast was not included but we also didn't sign for it as we prefer to look around for places to have breakfast in.If I ever go back to HAMBURG I will go back to this hotel it is very conveniently located.

The hotel is convienently located right across the street from the train station so take the train from the airport and save some euro. The room was small but I expected that. The bathroom was tiny and the shower was quite tiny too. The room was clean. There was only one outlet (the TV outlet). Wifi was available and breakfast was good at 7,5 euro. The walls are thin so if you are a lite sleeper be aware.

Room Tip: I stayed in a small single room that was between two other rooms on the third floor. I could hear e...

Arrived last Wednesday (27/3) and traveled to Hamburg Central train station from the airport as we were aware it was very close to this hotel we had booked. On arrival and heading out onto the street (Kirchnalee) we could very quickly see the hotel in view was merely yards away so made life very easy in terms of getting around Hamburg on the reliable S-Bahn train service.
Check in was quick and efficient albeit I am not 100% sure I like a key service to rooms - think its pretty outdated in comparison to the swipe card system that most modern hotels adopt these days. Having to drop keys off every time we head out is a bit of a ball ache. I was provided with a map of Hamburg upon arrival and offered a breakfast package, which I declined.
The room was a double room and whilst it was fairly small room as a whole, I thought the price was excellent for an en-suite hotel room in an excellent location for travel. I paid roughly £200 for a 4 night stay.
The rooms came with Free WI-FI Internet access which you have to log back into every hour. This was largely reliable and an important feature of any hotel room for me.
The room also came with a tv with a standard amount of tv channels.
The shower was slightly different from what im used to as it required you to select both hot and cold generally and determine the level of each you require.. took a few mins to master but was very good after that.
There was a mini bar at reception available for getting a late drink which came in handy and a small lounge just between reception and first floor with chairs and a computer free for residents to use.
All in all location was very good, price was very good, service was very good so I really cannot complain. Recommended.
