This is a comfortable, well maintained hotel with excellent amenities that is located in an industrial section of town. There is virtually nothing (shops, restaurants, etc.), that you can easily walk to from this location. I stayed here for several days while visiting a client located nearby, so it was convenient for that. I don't think I would recommend it to tourists wanting to see downtown Hamburg, but if the location works for you, it's an excellent choice.
The daily breakfast buffet, which was included, is excellent, with a good variety of dishes and uniformly high quality food. I also ate dinner twice at the hotel restaurant, and the food is excellent.
I also used the spa, which has a small, but well maintained set of equipment, including treadmills, stationary bikes and ellipticals, plus some free weights and a few machines.
The room itself was small, but perfectly comfortable, with all the standard amenities. The only real negative i can come up with was that the water temperature fluctuated a bit in the shower in the morning.
The property also has covered parking. It's about a 30-45 minute cab ride to Hamburg Airport, which typically costs around €30-40.
I noticed quite a bit of graffiti all around Hamburg, and my German hosts seemed quite concerned about street crime. They said they didn't feel it was safe to walk in the area around my hotel. But, I don't know the actual incidence of crime in Hamburg as a whole, or the area surrounding the hotel, in particular. Coming from Los Angeles, it didn't look all that rough to me. less
