        location next to Altona train station is handy, price was great for a room in Hamburg, had a safe, had comfortable beds although they were 2 put together vs 1 large one, good new elevator

        very small room vs photos, beds were 2 put together vs 1 large one

        The location of this hotel is good for short visits to Hamburg - literally outside of the S-Bahn station that will get you into the centre very quickly. Despite the proximity to the trains, the rooms were fairly quiet. Also, the staff were very friendly.

        The hotel is in need of an update; our room was quite old-fashioned. Otherwise it was a bit dirty (hair in the bathtub and some dust along the windowsill), but overall it was comfortable and acceptable for one night.

        Less than a block from Altona Station, this was a great choice for people who want to stay in this charming part of Hamburg and/or just avoid the rather depressing main station area.

        Showerheasds have been fixed in place, and while the shower is fine, it's impossible tp stand dirtectly under the water without being wedged between the safety grab bar and the soap dispenser.

        Location next to the Altona Bahnhof.

        We were giving an individual room for two people, but of course we had to pay for a double room. Anyway it was the smallest indivudual room I have never been, It was a small room where just a bed suit on it. It is not what on the pictures of appear. My boyfriend was some centimeters bigger than the bed... I was saying at the reception that we were given the wrong room thinking that it was a mistake, and they were answering me that the hotel was completely full, and that some people prefer sleeping there cause it is smaller.. (???). I didn´t like the fact that we were getting an individual room instead the double room we have booked a month ago, but I hate when they are lying to me saying that sothe other customers prefer sleeping on a 3x2 m2 room.

        Very nice location for a quick stop-over in Hamburg. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Nice breakfast.

        Smaller than average rooms + odd set-up of furniture made it feel cramped.
