We got into town very late and were thrilled to find an available free parking spot right in front of the hotel. In the morning, we had to move our car just across the lot by 8 a.m. due to construction but could park there for free until we left town. The room was basic and small and the bathroom and shower were just down the hall. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable, and the breakfast was decent. No complaints at all-other than they denied two of our credit cards (which is ridiculous) so we had to pay cash. Normally that's not an issue, but since we were headed to Denmark, we didn't have a lot of Euros. Either the guy didn't know how to work the credit card machine, or they just don't want anyone to pay with a card-which is fine as long as they say that :P

We stayed here in May 2012 for one night, it was very basic but cheap and very clean. The staff were extremely helpful and informative about the area. The tube station is just over the road the hotel is ideally situated for getting about the city. There is a little shopping street just along from the hotel with really nice shops and the whole area although a little tired has a vibrant vibe to it. If you want good value and don't mind a basic decor/amenities this is a good find

This is the hotel where the vast majority of bands stayed while performing at the legendary Star Club. It is steeped in rock and roll history, and as mentioned close to the clubs of the wild Reeperbahn. The Top Ten Club (another club where The Beatles used to play) should still be there. Stay here for the experience!

Found this hotel to be handy for The trendy and upcoming (but still outwardly poor )Shantze area and just off the metro line at Feldstrasse.The St Pauli area and Reeperbahn is also walkable.
Smiling welcome at reception and excellent English spoken by Staff.
The hotel is quite dated in decor, as are the rooms but all is perfectly adiquate for an enjoyable stay at a good price (not easy in Hamburg).Rooms NOT ensuite but we never had to queue for one of the bath or shower rooms which were kept spotless. Breakfast was pleasant with a continental buffet and the Bar and lobby areas had Free WIFI and some comfy seating. Would recommend to seasoned travellers and those on a budget and of course we may even stay again.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quieter but the view is dull

Having looked for a long time for somewhere affordable in Hamburg we settled for this without particularly high hopes. However, we needn't have worried at all - a 5 minute walk to Feldstrasse station from where it was amazingly less than 10 minutes either to the centre (Rathaus) or St Pauli/port area. The hotel was very clean, and our room was incredibly bright and spacious. We opted for shared bathroom facilities and these were always clean and in the time we were there, we never once saw anyone else using them. We had planned to move to a hostel in the centre but liked the hotel and the area so much that we stayed put for an extra night. Breakfast was typical but generous - cereal, bread, cheese, cold meats. When we had an issue with trying to get a bus to the airport the staff were very helpful and printed information for us - they were generally very friendly. The area itself is great as well - turn right upon exiting the hotel and walk 5 minutes to explore the great cafes, shops and restaurants of Schanzenviertel. There's an excellent "kartoffelhaus" - all manner of exciting potato dishes on Schanzenstrasse and a lovely lounge/late night bar on the way to the metro - I can't recall the name but it was at basement level, with lots of nice sofas and an astra sign outside. Schanze may look a bit scruffy in the day, but it comes alive at night. A great hotel, I'd happily stay again.

I have just come back from Hamburg and my stay in the Hotel Pacific was pretty good. It is situated on a fairly busy main road but my room was towards the back and I had no problems with noise. The hotel itself may need a bit of modernisation (the foyer looks a bit 1970's) but it was clean and well run. Reception staff were all very nice and all spoken excellent English and were only too happy to answer any questions or give advice about the city. The room I had was a decent size, with a shower and toilet in one room, with a wash basin in the opposite corner of the bedroom. The only problem I would say is that the bottom of the bathroom cabinet was about 8-10 inches above the sink, so trying to wash, or rinse your mouth out, after brushing your teeth was a bit tricky. BBC World News was on the TV, in the morning, only and other than that, there were no English language channels. Breakfast was typical of European hotels ie. cold meats, cheese, cereal and boiled eggs, all served in the restaurant, looking out onto the main street. If you don't want to pay 25 euros, to get to the hotel, from the airport, you can take 'Jasper' aiport express bus to the main train station, for 5 euros and then take U-bahn line 3, direction Barmbek and get off at Feldstrasse station. Exit left from the station and walk to the end of the road. Turn right and the hotel is 20 metres on the right.
Overall, for 60 euros a night, I can't complain and would stay here again. By the way, Hamburg is a fantastic city and is well worth a visit.

I stayed in a room with its own shower for four nights and liked the hotel very much. It's not gorgeous but it's pretty clean, the people are great, beds are all right, and the location is terrific. My room had a sink in it and in its bathroom just a toilet and shower. The shower was like another I'd encountered in a different Hamburg hotel--for some reason, when they add them to the old buildings, they make the shower pan very high, so it means climbing up about a foot to get in, which could be a problem for the elderly or someone with a back or hip problem.

Plenty of hot water and good heating. Good breakfast with the usual meats and cheeses, also yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, all served in the pleasant bar area.

The Schanze is the hippest part of town and is full of cafes and cool shops. It's not right in the thick of things--I think seven stops on the the Metro to the main station--but it's a great area to stay in, kind of like the Left Bank of Hamburg. The website's directions for finding the hotel are not so hot: take the Metro U3 to Feldstrasse from the main train station. Exit and turn left. Go to the big street with the stoplight (Neuer Federmarkt) and turn right and the hotel is right there. I suggest crossing the street in front of the Metro station before turning left (in other words, going on the non-Walmart side of the street) because it's more pleasant. The Schanze starts just past the hotel. If you turn the other way (right) after exiting the Metro and go straight then towards the right, there's another very cool area, Karo.

I recommend taking the Airport Express, which is easy to find just outside the airport. It costs 8 euro roundtrip for the 20-minute trip to the train station , where you can get the U3 to go to the hotel. I think it would be difficult if not impossible to find a hotel to equal the Pacific for the price. A great deal in a wonderful city!
