Now my fourth, or is it 5th, stay here and definately my preferred hotel in Hamburg. Firstly in price terms it is for me normal - not budget but definately not expensive. Location - it is not quite right for the shopping centre or for the up market financial part but it is perfectly situated for 2 of the most characteristic aspects of HAmburg. It is just behind the Reaperbahn and majestically overlooks the grand and very active port.
The rooms are standard in size but are special due to the full length windows (try and get a high corner room) and simple but original dark furniture - I am writing this at a long breakfast type bar and sofa. There no baths but again the shower & toilet rooml are simple, functional and a little bit different for a hotel in this price range. There are many other little touches - when you enter the room you are not greeted by an anonymous welcoming face on the TV but view from their own webcam over the harbour. I've left this on but the lens seems now to be frozen over. Room service has sushi form the bar downstairs.
This is definately my hotel in Hamburg; comfortable, right price and a little bit different.
Therefore I can't recommend it as there may not be space for me next time I come.More
