“Lafayette the place to be”
Reviewed 4 June 2008

great hotel, rooms are small but very clean, breakfast for those who are up (or just getting to bed) is basic continental , the pools are good size for anyone wishing to have a dip.
the world famous Reeperbhans on you doorstep,with fantastic night life, pub to visit is the Tankstelle if your a fan of either H.S.V. or Glasgow Rangers http://www.sportpub-tankstelle.de/.

We were in a pinch and had to book this hotel since the city of Hamburg was in the midst of their tri-annual fair/festival. Another hotel that we had read about on trip advisor was booked, but the lady who owned this hotel gave us the Lafayette Hotel phone number. The website looked great, and the people working at the front desk were all very helpful...so we decided to go for it. We had been to Hamburg a few months prior to this trip, but never to this area of town. Although the address does not indicate it, the hotel is situated one block perpendicular to the Reeperbahn district. The area outside of the hotel is very dirty and not our scene, however, entertaining at the very least...but really not the area of town I would have chosen to stay had I known it beforehand (ie, note to self: always "google map" addresses of hotels before booking). I guess I really did not feel secure or safe while staying in this room at night, even with my husband. The walls and doors were thin/flimsy, and due to the location, there were people in the hallways at all hours of the morning and night.

The breakfast was a bit above average, but not one of the greatest German hotel breakfasts that I have eaten. The hotel itself seemed superficially clean, but was old and had a lot of wear and tear showing. The bed linens did not smell nor feel clean. The one set of towels we were given for our 2 days in the hotel was clean, but the sheets definitely were not. The carpet in the room was dark grey, so it had the possibility of hiding a lot of the dirt that could have been lurking on/beneath the floor of the hotel room. The carpet in the hotel room was the same carpet found in the hotel hallways, and it was a type of outdoor carpet that you might see lining decks, etc. The hotel was clearly given 3 stars since it had an elevator and a pool. Otherwise, it would have been given 2 stars at most in my opinion. All in all, I would not choose to stay in this hotel again...but if you are in a bind, then it would have to do.

  • Liked — Great service at front desk and decent breakfast
  • Disliked — Location and lack of cleanliness, not a great value for how much you pay per night
  • Stayed March 2008, travelled as a couple
