Unstable and very slow Internet connection with no response capability from anyone in the staff. So if you need to download any emails for work in the evenings, stay away from this hotel since it won't work, if on holiday and you can download from a Starbucks during the day, good option overall.
Enjoyed our stay. Comfy, quirky rooms, really nice vibe to the whole place. Good location - 15 minute walk from the Alster and Rathaus, and right by the Überseequartier underground station. Didn't eat in the restaurant, but the atmosphere was good. Only annoyances were lack of coffee facilities in room and expensive per-person rates for breakfast. There's apparently a 'grab and go' option during the week - why not at the weekend too? Anyway - that's easily swerved by heading round the corner to the excellent Lieblingsplatz bakery / coffee shop (highly recommended).
Excellent location in Hamburg . Just a few minutes walk to the town hall , shops ,lake ,botanic gardens and dammtor station . Very stylish hotel inside - comfortable room , beds and modern bathroom . Breakfast was extremely good too . Hotel is a bit ugly to look at - grey tower block but everything else makes up for that .
I originally was booked in an Executive Double Room. I was offered an upgrade to an Executive Suite for a reasonable cost and accepted this room. It was very nice and spacious and very comfortable. I was impressed with the Buffet Breakfast which has a great selection of food for all tastes. Large variety or meats, cheeses, fruits along with cereals as well a a good selection or hot choices eggs, bacon, sausages. I also used the Bar, Restaurant and Room Service they were all exceptional and reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Wish I could have stayed another week.
Overall, a very nice experience:
Nice room with both modern as well as comforting atmosphere.
Option to enjoy the breakfast buffet outside at tables overlooking the canal.
Pleasant bar with good cocktails.
We stayed for 3 nights, in a room overlooking the canal. There were some slight marks on the carpet, and the sofa was slightly damaged; otherwise everything was fine. The hotel reception staff were outstanding. The restaurant was expensive but the food and service were very good.
We spent 2 nights here and found it excellent. The staff were super helpful and friendly, rooms modern, clean and decent size and the location is only 2 minutes to the u-bahn or a 10 minute walk to the Rathaus. We also came with our 3-year old who always felt welcome
