This is a quirky hotel on outskirts of Hamburg. It has a very eco-friendly theme and the whole hotel appears of be made of wood. It is very clean, spacious and quiet, but they may be due to the fact that there is really nothing surrounding it- a few new apartment blocks were going up when we stayed, but no real shops or bars nearby. The railway is about 5min walk away which is handy for getting into Hamburg which is good. There were two things I didn't enjoy about the hotel, no kettle in the rooms (which with all the wood is understandable), but the staff are helpful and willing to give you hot water as needed. Also the menu in the restaurant was very limited, but what we did eat was lovely. The beds were comfortable, but a bit close together and you cant really move them as there are build in units for lamps behind them. The shower was brilliant and they provide you with lots of eco shampoos and soaps, even got a spare travel charger from reception when I lost mine. Lots of free wifi as well. would definitely stay again. Good hotel if you are looking for something a bit quieter outside Hamburg and don't mind the short commute in.
