Novotel Hamburg City Alster
Ranked #47 of 321 Hotels in Hamburg
Reviewed 20 July 2011

We stayed at this hotel on our first visit to Hamburg and liked the hotel. So we returned there for our second visit. Nothing had changed. Friendliy staff, nice hotel, clean with lovely rooms. Not too big, but everything in there you need.
Breakfast was included in our package deal, but on it's own is quite expensive. You might want to travel into town to have a cheaper one. Otherwise breakfast at the hotel is fine. Lots of fresh products and more than enough choice.
Travelling into town is very easy as the U-bahn is on the doorstep. You don't even have to walk 1 minute te get there....but do make sure you take the swimmingpool entrance when arriving at Lübecker Strasse otherwise you might end up walking a bit.

If you have a room on the first floor you might hear the U-bahn going past, so you want to ask for a room higher up in the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room on 3rd floor or up.

The hotel cannot be faulted on cleanliness or efficiency. reception staff were excellent and assisted with early booking following arrival off a ship. However room is odd with separate toilet without hand washing facilities in the toilet. You have a little walk to wash your hands into the main bathroom - poor design as toilet is next to door and some guests unlikely to make thew walk to second bathrooom.

Novotel, is a good choice when you are travelling to Hamburg for just business.
The hotel is not far from the city, have a subway station right in front of the gate.
There are no significant attractions around but if you will be busy with meetings and come to sleep after dinner, it provides large, clean, convinient rooms.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the backyard are more peaceful

Good hotel, where you get what you expect. Easy access and parking. Well situated to leave in the morning for most Hamburg areas.

Not a bad looking hotel, spacious lobby, small bar area, polite staff. I had trouble with my room keycard and had to have it redone 3 times before it worked, but the hotel staff made sure it was a painless procedure. The room was medium sized, double bed and small sofa - but was a smoker's room and smelled like it. Shower and bath were fairly new, but shower door was configured so that it opened far into the bathroom, making entrance and exit dificult. Also the positioning of the door guaranteed that water would spill onto the floor when it was opened. The bed was uncomfortable, with a thin mattress and very small pillows. Internet was available but for 10 Euros a day, 6 Euros for 3 hours or 2.50 for 15 minutes. Minibar prices were very high even by minibar standards - small bag of crisps was 3 Euros, as was a tiny can of Coke. The neighborhood surrounding was a bit strange, very dark at night and hardly any restaurants around. I would not necessarily recommend this hotel, but at 99 Euros per night (single) it was comparatively inexpensive.
