No luxury hotel but worked for us
Posted Aug 26, 2006
We stayed at this hotel one night while traveling by train from Amsterdam to Copenhagen. We arrived in Hamburg at 8:00 pm and left the next day at noon. It's a 4 Euro cab ride from the central train station in Hamburg, so it was extremely convenient for our purposes. When we arrived, we were greeted by the proprietor of the hotel, who actually called us by our name (we must have been the only guests who hadn't arrived that night). Check-in went very smoothly, and he explained to us how the front door security worked. We stayed in a Quad Room, which had a queen size bed and a double bed, which worked well for our family of 4. The room was clean but definitely not luxurious. The hotel is not in the best neighborhood in town. Within a 4-5 block radius, we saw a number of sex clubs, and we even saw a woman who appeared to be a prostitute. Personally, I prefer hotels with a bit more luxury than this, so I wouldn't stay here for any extended period of time. However, it worked quite well for my family, which was looking for a clean room, big enough for 4, within walking distance of the Hamburg central train station.
