          • Group of friends

            Close to main railway station. Fairly relaxed staff, doors locked from street to ensure secure if no one manning front desk.

            Breakfast crammed into tiny hatch area means it's difficult to access breakfast, access to internet VERY poor in rooms despite advertising internet access included in room rate.

            Everything is ok. Free wifi, large room (in comparision of course)

            Unfortunately, there is no elevator for some rooms and ladders with high angle. Not comfortable to use with luggage.

            From the airport a train takes in 25 minutues just next to the hotel, so it is very comfortable. The location is very central, perfect to discover the city from here. Wifi is available in the room. It is clean, and the staff is helpful.

            There was no lift to my floor. In the bathroom the smell of smoking was disturbing (I do not know if it was because of the previous guest or the cleaning staff). Next to the hotel the workers start to work very noisily at 7 in the morning.

            there are actually 3/4 hotels "in one" Residence, Lumen and Terminus, if one is overbooked/full, they'll give you at least equal room in another hotel. if you afraid multiculture and sexindustry, you have to pay at least twice for the same quality

            Accessibility and the discount they made on the rate of my room

            Although announced as a non-smoking area, my room was impregnated by a strong smoking smell (tabaco), which owing to the small dimensions of the room, put it hard to sleep.

            Very good value, clean room. Steet is vibrant but the rest of the St Greorg area is better.

            Single room very small.But no compalints at the price. With its location you have to have an open mind as to charms of Hamburg.

            We actually did not stay at this hotel. When we went to check in, they directed us to a sister property across the street, the Hotel Lumen. We picked this hotel because of its proximity to the train station - and it was about 3 blocks away so that was fine. It is in a commercial area with peep shows next door so that might make some uncomfortable. Also there are a flight of stairs to reach the first level; then there is an elevator to higher floors. (This is mentioned when booking so not a surprise but should be emphasized. They did help us carry our luggage up/down the stairs. Breakfast was fine.

            Do not get a room on the first floor as you hear all the activities at the reception as well as in the kitchen where they fix breakfast. We were put on the first floor because one of us had on a foot cast but we should have asked to go to a higher floor due to the noise.

            The location was excellent near the central station. The bathroom was good.

            The room was dark. The hotel was above a sex shop - the photo on the website had this obscured. The staff were variable, some pleasant some abrupt.

            The location is no too bad.

            The bath basin is leakage when washing.

            Breakfast was good, room was clean, personal, where very friendly (housekeeping very proffesional and friendly!!), room was big enough and bathroom was good and clean. Privat parking 5 min walk from the hotel for decent price.

            The wifi was really bad, they had obviously not invested in it, i only got 2 bars when i sat on the floor of the wallway, which is ridicoulous, the area is rather dodgy (we didn't mind, we are from amsterdam, felt like home...), the tv had a volume limit on it, which made it impossible to watch relaxed tv sometimes, why?? when you get to the hotel you have to get up some stairs before you get to the elevator, not very handy. We really think the hotel is good, we would go here again, but all the little things made the price of 165,- euro's for 2 nights (one of them a sunday when all the stores in the city are closed) a bit much.

            The location was convienent - just a short walk from the Hauptbahnhof. Also a very good breakfast buffet.

            The hotel is located between several sex shops which appear to be open all night. They include sales of sex items as well as shows. Not the best nights sleep.

            overall good experience.

            except for walking up the stairs till the first floor (which was mentioned in the website), rest all was goo.

            The staff.

            My room was very small this time - more like a ship's cabin. Last time it was much bigger. And for the same price.

          • Single

            Location of hotel was fine - very close to Hauptbanhoff. Breakfast was good.

            I would not rate the hotel as a 'three-star' which it is supposed to be, more like a 'two-star'. The lack of an elevator on the ground floor is most inconvenient (one has to climb a steep staircase to the 1st floor). My room was extremely small - tiny in fact-very narrow. Not at all comfortable for a three-day stay.
