“Very basic but ideal for a stag do!”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

We stayed here for a recent stag do. It is literally 30 seconds from the Reeperbahn and therefore an ideal base to explore the city. Plus, a short walk along the main round in the opposite direction takes you right up to the Rathaus, which is stunning.

ARRIVAL
The hotel is really easy to find. Around 20 minutes on the tube from Hamburg Airport (costs a couple of Euros each and is the easiest Airport journey I’ve had!). It’s literally right next to the St Pauli underground station.
The hotel looks nice and modern from the outside with a warm and inviting, if not quite cool, reception area. The staff are bilingual and very helpful.

ROOM
Ahhhhh…..well, I know the hotel rooms would be basic, but they really are basic! Firstly, there are NO key cards. You are given a code to type into an old number lock system on the doors. It changes on checkout for security.
The beds are single beds and comfortable enough (particularly after a drink or two). There is a toilet although no lock on the door. But the shower is where it gets interesting…the shower is behind a frosted door which is right in the middle of the room. So, make sure you know your fellow traveller well! It makes getting in and out of the shower interesting.
Management: I know it’s a budget hotel, but the towels are appalling. Thin and old. Please can you update these?

We didn’t have breakfast, so I can’t comment on that. There is a free locker to leave your luggage, although it’s a 10 euro deposit. The lockers are HUGE and can take multiple bags.

For those on stag dos and hen dos. The Reeperbahn was good fun but boring in the day as it doesn’t get going or open until about 8pm. But it really is quite seedy and overpriced.
We found some great smaller pubs and bars down the side streets, where drinks were cheap and it was great fun!
The hotel’s close location to the bars and clubs however don’t equate to noise – I don’t remember hearing any noise!

Would I use this hotel again? Yes definitely for this sort of visit, as it was so well-placed and so reasonable cost-wise. But if I was taking the mrs to Hamburg, I would definitely upgrade my stay to a nice hotel and one which is away from the Reeperbahn!

Hotel is situated right outside St. Pauli train station and a couple of minutes walk from the Reaperbahn which is the main place for pubs, clubs and bars!

Rooms are clean but basic. Breakfast is cold meats, cheese and bread etc. Decent price for location.

We visited this hotel as part of a stag party and couldn't of expected any more!

The hotels in a perfect location, it's clean, the breakfast is absolutely fine and the staff were helpful. Also the beds are fairly comfortable.

All round a good hotel.

For the quality of services and location versus price, this as been one of the best hotel I have stayed in. Close the the Hamburg messe and to "Dom" for some quick dinner and some fun. If you are on business trip with need of room just for sleep, I recommend.
