“small and basic. but great location”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

if all you need is a place to sleep, but have several places to go in Hamburg and beyond, and location matters, it may be an option. It is small- very small and basic. But across the Street from the Hauptbahnhof. Also, in the afternoons all restaurants and cafes on the sidewalk become lively and nice! I found it convenient for a short stay.

Room Tip: room 21 is an emergency room. tiny!! book in advance for single romos!

The hotel is in front of the train station (which could be the only one good thing...).
The rooms are small, smelly and noisy. Breakfast absolutely out of the german standards.
Maybe cheap... but you don't get what you pay for... (except for the location I suppose)
I do not recommend!

My wife and I needed a hotel near the train station, therefore we chose this hotel. We needed to spend one night, from 10 pm to 7 am, and decided not to spend much money for that. Big mistake! This is a rundown place with no frills whatsoever. There is no elevator and no air-conditioner. We could not open windows because of the outside noise. We spent a sleepless night in July. I would not stay in this hotel for free.

This hotel has a very nice location next to the train station. There are a lot of restaurants next to the hotel.
BUT there is a hotel restaurant with a night club on the back of the hotel. When we stayed there we could not sleep for the hole night. I can not recommende this hotel.

Reviewed 4 September 2010

It was hot, no air conditioning, so the window had to be open all night till 5 in the morning when a building site started up. Hardly any sleep all night. Combined with an 80 euro cancellation charge instead of a refund and 14 euro for a bottle of water from reception, no room service, was outrageous.
