    Unacceptable lack of sound-reducing doors. Hotel not for sleeping.
    • Business trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Superior Single Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The bed is placed directly besides the guest room door, which is providing no sound barrier whatsoever. Therefore, I woke up many times during every night, whenever other guests went in or out of their rooms. While the bed and pillow was comfortable, the complete lack of sound protection makes this hotel a complete no-go for people who actually want to sleep in the night.

    There was a significant kerfuffle in the hotel hallways in the wee hours of the night, this was rather annoying.

    Location of the Hotel was perfect to explore the colourful Reeperbahn area and the S-bahn station nearby was extremely convenient to get into any part of the rest of Hamburg. The hotel was very clean and staff were super friendly and helpful.

    The Hotel staff seemed to be a bit all over the place. Not enough staff available at the Reception desk. The area outside the Hotel is pretty gross! It's full of drunken homeless people who sleep on the street and piss all over. The Hospital has graffiti.I do like graffiti but when they just scribble to mark their territory and ruin nice buildings I do not condone this. I was very disappointed by Hamburg City. It stinks of urine pretty much everywhere and I have never seen a police man patrolling the area even if the Police station is 5-10 minutes walk from the Hotel. I was sort of scared to walk during the day. Avoid Reeperbahn area at all cost if you can!

    I loved the breakfast!

    The WC was quite small, but it is not a big problem. The noises from supermarket every morning were a bit annoying.

    The hotel is situated very conveniently if you'd like to spend some time near Reeperbahn, it's very close to the street but yet you won't hear the noises. Under the hotel there is a supermarket, the metro station is like 100 m away, the staff is helpful, the room is clean, big enough, WiFi working well. Very good location for that specific area as well as for walking to the harbour.

    Although staying on my own I booked a double room for the comfort factor. I decided to catnap a stray to see if the room size passed the acid test but sadly there was no way for me to get into the room with said pet so I could not swing it around. Additionally, unless you have legs that unhinge, you would need to be the world's greatest living contortionist to sit on the loo.No in room facilities and glass porthole in bathroom a little off putting. Even with a favourable exhange rate I think this place has been priced because of location not comfort or facilities.
