“Convenient location, too basic.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2007

We wanted to stay somewhere convenient, and we wanted to stay in a hotel that was not part of a large chain. This is exactly what we got from this hotel--and nothing more.

After being taken to a room reeking of cigarette smoke, we asked for a non-smoking room only to be taken to another room similarly reeking of smoke (the woman at the hotel had just taken the ashtray away!). Around 10 o'clock in the night, the woman at the reception told us that we should pay her immediately, to save her from coming in again in the morning (no staff at the hotel during the night--so if you want something during the night, forget it!). There was no key to the safe (the woman at the reception could not find the keys) so of course you could not leave anything precious in the room. When we reserved, we had asked specifically for a room with two beds but was told that there was none.

All in all, the hotel was OK for one night's stay, but DON'T expect anything more than the convenient location! At least chain hotels have basic facilities--which you cannot expect from such a small hotel. We paid 89 euros, which we had hoped would be more than enough for basic stuff!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2006

After many hours travelling, my partner & I arrived at Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (main station) and proceeded to look for accomodation nearby, we were not very hopeful, it being the World cup and with the city hosting a match earlier that day, however after a few misses of dodgy looking places and very expensive places we stumbled upon the Hotel Alt-Nurnberg in a street very near the station 'Steintorweg' You can't miss this hotel as it has a Hansel & Gretel-esque exterior which looks incongruous to it's big city surroundings. The proprietor was friendly enough, although with our limited German and her limited English, we struggled to get our requirements across, but we settled on a reasonable price of 109 Euros for an ensuite twin room (no doubles left). I expect you can get this quite a bit cheaper outside of the football tournament, but we found it a reasonable price for the accomodation provided. The room was at the top of the hotel so street noise was subdued (the double glazing is substantial) It was roomy with big chunky wooden beds, and although traditionally German in feel, it wasn't too twee (unlike the outside of the hotel) the bathroom was spacious, modern and spotlessly clean and the shower was nicely powerful. We were asked when we wanted our breakfast and it was very flexible, I think you could have breakfasts up to 11am if you wanted. The breakfast was continental but generous with lovely fresh croissants, rolls, yoghurt, cheese, meats and a boiled egg. I recommend staying here if you want a clean and inexpensive city hotel very convenient for the central station.
