On the whole, would use again
Posted Jan 2, 2017 on Hotels
Stayed here for 3 nights between Xmas and new year. Arrived at 11am but able to check in early. Staff speak English and are welcoming and friendly. Room on 4th floor at the front of the hotel was clean and spacious. No noise from main road outside. Beds comfy, fridge useful for putting our drinks/snacks in, toiletries in bathroom if you were travelling light, safe to put valuables in. TV only had BBC News in English which wasn't great for those chill times in the room. Room quite hot for winter, air con seemed to be warm air which got quite stuffy even after we'd turned it off. Tea/coffee facilities would have been welcomed as we certainly didn't want to pay the mini bar prices! Free wifi is always a bonus but it was slow at times, couldn't really use two devices at once. You'd have to upgrade the wifi if you wanted to watch a film/ YouTube. Had a drink in the bar each night, staff chatty and attentitive. Sky sports was on for those like me wanting to see the footy and darts! Didn't wander round the area but it has a McDonald's and dominos opposite and a couple of restaurants were recommended to us (Scotty's) The bakery opposite was perfect. Delicious croissants, donuts and coffee for a few euros compared to expensive hotel breakfast. We'd get food from there then catch number 3 bus into Hamburg (20mins) if you want to explore the city easily and visit attractions, get a Hamburg Card. You can use all transport and get discounts which saves loads. Love Hamburg!
