As this was a trip on my own for two nights to catch up with a friend I wanted to find the cheapest accommodation possible although still modern and comfortable. The DAS hotel met my expectations completely.
I booked direct online at the DAS website and really appreciated the 'extras' you can pay for - an 11:00am early check in (usual is 14:00) for 15 euros for example. For me that was a no brainer and I like knowing that my wait would be very short as my flight landed in Hamburg early. At 11:00am on the dot I was able to go to my room.
For once the hotel you see in the pictures on the website is exactly what you get in reality. There is plenty of detailed information on the website which tells you exactly how big the rooms are and what they contain (although the website only seems to have a German language option - so I had to use Google Translate). Anyone who complains about small rooms or lack of amenities only have themselves to blame for not doing their research.
The room was perfectly sized for me, was facing an interior courtyard so was extremely quiet and presentation was immaculate and modern with flatscreen TV etc. The lack of aircon could be an issue for some - especially in the summer months.
Breakfast was good and again offered superb value for money (10 euros). It isn't the most extensive spread but for 10 euros you will not find better outside the hotel. Scrambled/boiled eggs, juices, coffee/tea, cold cuts of meats and cheeses, whole fruits, cereals.
Location: do NOT be put off by anyone claiming it is in a 'red light' district. The hotel is an easy straightforward 5min walk from the main central station and yes, in line with a lot of european cities the central station areas tend to be where 'adult stores' and some sex workers are found. I felt absolutely zero issue with regards to my personal safety. It also seems to be a turkish/arab area, the benefit of which is there are plenty of late night restaurants near the hotel serving good food and coffee.
The only improvement I could suggest to the hotel would be PLEASE have an english language option on the website!
