MY Place is located in a rather pedestrian neighborhood in Hamburg, but once one arrives at the hotel, the situation changes dramatically. The hotel, while quite small, is very handsomely appointed, esp. the room that I stayed in which had a lovely color combination for bed, curtains, etc. Yes, the lack of an elevator could be a problem. However, the helpfulness of the staff and the other nuances of good service and facilities clearly outweighed any inconvenience. Highly recommended for single travelers and short stays.
