This hotel is in a good location

4 out of 5
Posted Jan 20, 2017
Pros: It's great for transport as it's actually at the entrance to the Altona station
Cons: The noise levels from the trains and the tannoy is the main problem up I don't think this can be improved due to its proximity to the tracks
Location: It was perfect for what we needed and was close to shops and eateries inside and outside the station.
We had a 3 night stay in January and had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the rail tracks It's great for transport as it's actually at the entrance to the Altona station but the downside is that you are woken each morning by the trains and the announcement tannoy. This wasn't a problem for us as we had to get up early each day but if you like a long sleep, this hotel might not suit you. Our room was a little cramped but it was clean and tidy and the shower was good. Overall I'd stay here again.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Would have been helpful to have free WiFi. The offer was just 256 KB which is far too minimal.
Location: Very close to bus and train stations. Also banks, shops and eateries easily accessible.
Staff were very courteous and helpful. The room was well maintained and clean. The mini bar was offered free which meant one did not need to be purchasing water in particular from outside. There are coffee and tea making facilities. The room was kept at a reasonable temperature and not over heated. The hotel was quiet at night.

Pros: location - free access to Public Transit - clean and well appointed rooms
Cons: no real complaints except the high cost for breakfast but since there are other eating places a few minutes walk from the hotel this is not an issue
We were very satisfied with our stay at this hotel. The location is excellent with easy access to public transit, rail services and shopping (a good sized shopping centre with a very good food court is a three minutes walking distance from the hotel). A major plus is the hotel card that gives their guests free access to the main Hamburg Public Transit System making it easy to reach many interesting points in Hamburg in a few minutes. Good shopping can be found along the pedestrian mall leading to the shopping centre. In the Altona Rail Station Complex are plenty of small places for quick snacks and breakfast - no need to pay the fairly high breakfast cost at the hotel. The area is busy with people, mainly locals going after their daily routines. We would highly recommend this hotel and we are planning to go back there during our next trip to Hamburg.

The location is good, but the staff were unengaged and everything took a very long time to get done.

Cons: Free wifi would be ideal. I wasted some time in establishing a connection and then could not disconnect. My 5 hour voucher had expired next morning.
Location: There are plenty of options to buy food nearby and so I purchased my evening meal and chose not to have the hotel breakfast at an additional fee.
I had just completed a journey from Australia to Frankfurt and then transferred to a flight to Hamburg. I have stayed at the Altona previously and find the proximity to the bahnhof ideal as I was travelling onward by regional train the next day. The staff were very helpful with the wifi set up which would not easily connect on my Tablet. Instructions re the Wifi are a little confusing re which ID no. to use first. A learning experience for me too.
