I paid 9 months in advance to get the discounted no refund price for five nights at the end of August. I saw their pictures, and I did read a bad review of hotel, but I gave it the benefit if the doubt. Big mistake. From the first instant of stepping off the street to face a steep staircase to all that ensued, which includes a bathroom I would not put a thong in, I decided life was too short. I did not stay. I went up the street and for not much more, booked into a civilised hotel. I returned and aired my polite response to the condition of the hotel to 'the front desk' ans asked for half my money to be refunded. Not possible was the reply.They offered to exchange the room for another in one of the other sixteen hotels they own, with me paying the extra rate for the better hotel, but I declined. I leave it to all travellers to read the negative reviews from people who take the time to write them. I did not pay heed , and instead paid the real price in euros and time wasted.

Room Tip: Just dont stay here if you value real value and cleanliness.

Really cheap hotel in central Hamburg. Rooms were ok with shared bathroom and shower on the top floor. Nice and friendly personal who were really helpful. Good breakfast. My Girlfriend booked the hotel and my expectations were very low. I was really surprised by the value for the money spent.

The hotel is relly a cheap one to stay at, and it looks accordingly to the price: not dirty, but a bit worn-out. I'd say it's OK for an overnight stay.
The reception is open 24/7. The breakfast was OK. The wireless Internet connection was unstable in different parts of the room.

By the way, the closest station to the hotel is called Lohmühlenstraße (U1). If you want to go straight to the central station, prepare for a short walk through a quarter of sex cinemas and casinos.

Unless you want your stay in charming Hamburg destroyed by this bad hotel, you should not stay in Wikinger Hof. We came as a group with our entire luggage and was faced to a steep staircase reaching 4(5) floors up. No elevator, the shower (miserable and blocked up) was in 4th floor. We didn't dare to think what would happen in case of fire. And our rooms were of mixed quality... One was bright pink with big brown stains under the mattresses and blood on the bedside. Result: We buy our own sheets and put them over the dirty beds. But hurrah! The room had a shower. But unfortunately useless. The tap for the hot water was broken, no lamps were working. The remote control had an impressing operative radius of 2 m around the TV. In the other rooms there were also considerable drawbacks. This is a summary of the most significant ones: The towels were not changed, despite desperate tries to signalize that we wanted a new one, noisy neighbours at night, broken locks in the doors, very dirty carpets, disgusting smell of smoke etc.; in general a very shabby hotel, and so was its surroundings.
