Very good 8.0 From 91 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Hotel was next to the railway station, so was easy to find and very much within walking distance; however I was not affected by any noise or disturbance from the station. The underground system was in the same station, so getting around Hamburg was very convenient. Staff were very helpful and friendly and professional.

Nice small hotel very close to Altona Station
This is a nice small hotel just 100 meters from Altona Station where all of Hamburg's transit connects, and Altona's cafes and shopping are a few steps further. Our room was large and comfortable with a comfy bed, sitting area, desk for working and fast wifi. There is coffee making and refrig, too. Two options are available for breakfast - small one with pastries and coffee and a big buffet with lots of choices. Both are yummy. The staff are friendly and helpful.. We enjoyed our stay!

Very good 8.0
The room was smallish but very clean and definitely adequate. Given the price of hotels in Hamburg it was excellent value for money. It was also a good location for transport links to the airport and for travelling around Hamburg. It was close to the rail, tube and bus stations.

Tiny rooms. No lifts. Great location. Clean
Very small room. Even smaller bathroom. No lifts so you’ll have to haul your bags up the stairs. Reception is at the hotel next door. Friendly staff. Wifi not good. We didn’t have breakfast.

The bed was like a cloud
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Great location, very clean, and the bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. I wanted to take the bed home with me.

Hotel Central
Room was basic but very clean. Bathroom was tiny though. Very easy to find from Altona Station and nice area.
Aidan, ie1 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
Too warm for comfort
Lack of air conditioning and being so close to the rail station, meaning that the noise from an open window was undesirable, made for a warm and uncomfortable stay. For the money; I would have expected air conditioning as standard and would have managed to get some sleep over the two nights.
Derick, gb2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Hotel central
The hotel room was simple but clean. The bathroom was big and had ample towels for 2 of us. The tv gave only 3 channels all in German. No toiletries in the bathroom. Check in and out quick and efficient.

God beliggenhed, rent og pænt
Hotellet ligger centralt lige ved banegården i Altona, tæt på butikker, marked og spisesteder. Det er rent og pænt. Gode senge.
