I am disappointed to hear other reviewer's comments about the area surrounding this elegant and highly professional business-class hotel. The 10-minute walk from Hamburg Central Station is through a typical multi-ethnic neighborhood that can be found in any large city throughout Europe. Personally, I don't find anything particularly 'dodgy' about the area and am quite amazed that other reviewers perceive Steindamm's Islamic influence, Turkish green grocers, quiet gay pubs, and a handful of innocuous 'adult' shops to be threatening... you need to get out more! I would hate to see potential guests at this fantastic hotel scared off by an urban street scene that is in no way different from the city centres of Amsterdam, Paris, or Berlin. Hamburg is not a sanitized suburb but a bustling, international port city with a reputation as a multicultural party town. This area simply reflects that tradition. If the Steindamm feels threatening, I would hate to see the same reviewers visit Hamburg's famous Reeperbahn in the St. Pauli district... they may never leave the hotel again!
I have stayed at the Arcotel Rubin many times for business and cannot recommend it highly enough. Excellent proximity to the S-bahn and central station for easy connections to the airport and the rest of the city. The hotel's restaurant, Wiener Kaffee, serves excellent Viennese coffee and high-quality food. The hotel's staff are friendly, polite and extremely professional. Clean, comfortable rooms. Lovely sauna and spa facilities on the top floor. Exceptional value for money.
