I stayed here when attending a conference. Location is great - cross street from the main train station and close to everything, the shops in the station and lots of convenience and department stores in the area. It is a bit of walk to the convention center on the other side of the lake - it wouldn't be a nice stroll in cold rainy days. Plenty breakfast choices. We also got a train pass with the room, good for traveling within Hamburg. Rooms are clean and decent in size. Check in/out were efficient. The hotel draws large crowd of travelers and often gets full - front desk's attitude and terseness show that they are not too worried about losing anyone's business. By no means they are rude - they just lack the little extra to make guests feel welcomed. The interior of the room is almost completely void of character and warmth but functional with simple and modern furnishings. If you have sensitive skin, bring your own toiletry items. The shampoo/body/hand wash combo liquid was so rough even my male colleagues asked me to get them some decent soaps when I was going to a drug store. The towels are thin. I stayed there for a week and found holes in my towels 4 or 5 days. Also watch out for the internet access card sold at front desk. On my last day there, the hotel sold me a 24-hour access card because they said the other types (4 hours or 8 hours) were sold out. A few hours later, I was told the system has been down and they refuse to refund me the card.
All in all, the hotel is a choice for well-prepared travelers in need of a clean and convenient location.
