“Perfect location, free parking, clean, and good breakfast”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We booked this hotel for one night, just as a sleep-over on our trip to copenhagen. Parking was free in the neighbourhood behind the hotel. A short walk (through a neighbourhood with some prostitutes) would get you to the central station and shopping center quite fast. The room was very clean, spacious, and the breakfast, which was included, had everything you could think of. An excellent choice for Hamburg, would definately stay here again.

We stayed two nights at the Arcotel Rubin in Hamburg, May 18 & 19, and found the hotel to be clean and pleasant but with a major drawback. My wife is fairly short and fell when attempting to step out of the bathtub after a shower. The tubs have very high sidewalls and the ceramic finish is exceedingly slippery. You should also note that although it is fairly close to the center of the city and the main train station the hotel is in a somewhat questionable part of Hamburg. We observed a brawl between members of two immigrant ethnic groups in front of the hotel on our second night. The restaurant in the hotel is good enough and the breakfast was more than adequate.

We had a superior room which was very big and comfortable. The hotel has good spa facilities. The breakfast was great.
The location is not ideal for a family with young children due to the sex industry that thrives in this area although we walked through it to the city centre with no problems.
The is parking rather expensive although secure in an underground car park.

This hotel is centraly located near the main train station. The area might not be very appealing at first sight between kebap and sex shops. But there are as well some very good restaurants and bars to be found in the area. The hotel offers very modern rooms, with some of them designed according to a specific theme. We had the chance to be placed into the so-called red room, which for one night, was a very funny experience. Front desk was very friendly and the breakfast was excellent!
We didn't have the time to test the sauna area at the top floor. Overall a very good value adress in Hamburg.

not far from the station you have to walk down a street full of sex shops and cinemas but there are no problems with this.On arrival we were offered an upgrade room which we accepted because there was a kettle in the room. Very big room with big shower and separate toilet. there was a safe and fridge in the room .breakfast was not included in the room rate and at 20 euros per person, per night we felt it was rather expensive. We bought friut and yoghurt at the lidl directly across the road.
