“Happy in Hamburg”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

Unexpectedly arrived early hours of the morning, the night porter despite limited English was very welcoming and check in went smoothly. This is a lovely old hotel with many quirky features especially the lift. Our room was very spacious, with a view over the garden. Breakfast is good with a choice of hot and cold, the dining room has pleasant views across the lake. It is approximately a 30 minute walk along the lake into the centre. This is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the modern chain hotels.

This is an old hotel next to a large lake. There is a jogging trail around the lake, and there was a sailboat race on it the day we arrived. It is about a 40 minute walk to downtown, but the bus stop is around the corner. There are restaurants nearby and a bar outside and downstairs. Our room was very large with high ceilings and a nice bath. This is not a modern property, it is a throwback to older times. The highlight for me was the vintage 1910 elevator that is still in use. It whirs and clangs in a most satisfying fashion.

I have been in better B&B’s, the Management was amateur & the customer service nonexistent,
Whoever owns this hotel needs to replace the Management ASAP.Maybe once this was a boutique hotel but no longer, save yourself the problems and book one of the many very good hotels available in Hamburg

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

I stayed the first time in this lovely restored boutique-hotel as an alternative to another close location to work. The rooms themselves with the somewhat classy style have definitely a special feeling to them. High ceilings and in my instance an old 1900's oven in the corner. The bath was refurbished to the most modern standard allbeit quiet narrow.
I required early check-out which was no problem and the hotel even prepared the complimentary breakfast ahead of the regular breakfast times.
The view from the dining room onto the "Außenalster" is definitely different in the morning and give that you have a sunny day surely wonderful.
I will happily return to this hotel on future business trips to Hamburg.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the Alster view!

This Hotel is not a 4 star hotel. It's fine, clean,my room was very small, would pay more for a better room. Staff was OK, very young and a little to laid back. No English TV. Skimpy on the pillows and sheets - what sheets? This is an upscale penison,not a 4 star hotel

Room Tip: Pay for it

From Berlin after ITB I moved to Hamburg to stay for one night before departing to India. With quite a bit of luugage (u have to have if you are attending a trade fair) I got down at the main station at 8 pm. It was raining and got a taxi.

After getting out of the taxi, had to lift my bags a few steps upwards. I had reserved a single room which was disappointing. The room was vvv small (imagine no place for a TV which was kept near the ceiling) and aftter keeping my bags it was difficult to move around. The bathroom was miniature and shower pathetic. Surrisingly some one told me its a 4-star boutique hotel. Probbaly it may be another one.
The breakfast was decent.

The rooms are with either a view of the Alster lake or the garden. I got the one with garden view.

Reviewed 19 April 2010

With all the recent events, no flights, trains, etc due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland we found ourselves out on a limb in Hamburg. Having stayed at this lovely hotel for 2 nights we returned from the airport to stay for a 3rd night. The manager and staff could not have been more helpful. They kindly upgraded our room and made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. What was amazing was the fact that we decided to make our way home via train on the 4th day so we needed an early start. We went down stairs at 4.30 am in the morning to find that the hotel staff had laid out a breakfast for us in the lovely dining room. As it was still dark and very early they had lit candles on all of the tables, it looked fantastic.

The service we received was second to none and I cannot praise the hotel enough. The location is stunning just by the lake and is not too far into the main city centre. We will be returning!
