“Great Location”
Reviewed 23 June 2008

Stayed at the Stella Maris whilst attending a friend's wedding - in an ensuite double (room only).

The rooms are clean if a little basic (great powerful shower though, and lots of hot water). Definitely somewhere to use as a base rather than to spend a great deal of time in. However the location is great - right next to the harbour, a short walk to the underground and tour buses etc. Its only a 5 min underground journey to the main shopping area.

There are a number of bars/cafes near the hotel, most of them with outside seating areas - very nice on a warm summer evening. Having said that, we didn't really notice any great amount of noise (and we were there at the weekend) so it would be a good location if you prefer early nights to late ones!

All in all, slightly expensive for what it is, but the great location makes up for it.

Reviewed 3 May 2008

Accommodation in Hamburg seems to be either expensive hotels aimed at business travellers or semi-brothels in the areas around the main railway station or the Reeperbahn, so I was intrigued to come across this hotel on (another) hotel-booking website at a very reasonable rate, but was concerned when I couldn't find any reviews of it. Anyway, initial impressions on check-in were fine. The reception area looked okay and the receptionist was pleasant and helpful. My room, however, was very basic - although it seemed clean enough - but the biggest surprise was that bathrooms were shared. The place felt a bit like a university hall of residence. The shared toilet/washroom area was clean and appeared to be unisex, though the only other guests I encountered were male. The biggest drawback was the lack of sound insulation. Fortunately the other guests on the night I stayed were a quiet bunch, but even the sound of a door closing echoed throughout the building, and I could clearly hear snoring in adjacent rooms. Not the place to be if a stag party is staying!

Overall, the place served its purpose for me as all I needed was a crash pad after a late flight, but if you're bringing your spouse for a romantic visit then look elsewhere.
