          modern, new

          no mini bar, and a bit too much ikea feeling, nothing special for the price

          New, modern, clean and pleasant overall.

          Aircon could be temperature adjusted, but fan could not. Was too strong fan and slightly noisy inside my room.

          Brand new hotel. Very design. Great Location, near the shopping area and Alster lake. Very large and clean rooms and bathroom (warm floor), extra towels available, automatic bed. Friendly staff. I lost my key card, they solved my problem in 30 seconds. Free wireless

          The TV didn't work!

          Location in the city center. Close to music hall, opera theatre and such cultral facilities. Convenient to move around the city using public tranportation, METRO which station is near. Stailish design of room

          Elevator cargo is litghened BLUE. It seems to be uncortable.

          Excellent rooms, restaurant etc. The setup in general is excellent. Modern.

          There is one thing (the only thing) that is really bad! Mobile phone connection signal strength while being on a business trip is more than poor! Not acceptable. That would prevent me from coming back. All the other things will have me come back.

          + Friendly stuff, trying to be useful + clean + good and tasty food in hotel's restaurant + hotel is quite close to the city center and to the congress center

          - It was very cold in room at first night , it was repaired for next days, but I caught cold :( - tv remote was completely non functional, it was repaired at the end of next day - when I asked a discount for room's problems at reception, got answer that it is impossible - so, despite to the fact that mainly hotel is normal, it looks I will prefer another hotel next time, because caught cold and no discount for problems with my room

          Excellent location, very clean, modern designed hotel. Staff was very kind and helpful.

          Organisation of breakfast and dinners leaves room for improvement. Large groups of bus travellers got first priority, which sometimes meant, that we couldn't either get a table or were served 1 1/2 hours after we sat down.

          Great location Very new modern building Very nice shower/bathroom Great restaurant in the hotel

          The bed was splitting in the middle (2 single beds put together as one double bed) Windows are very large but not tinted enough/people can look inside easily if the thik curtains are not closed

          I like the hotel itself, the location, the room - extra thanks for planning the lights properly so it is possible to work and read. Very rare and very much appreciated. Also the staff was very friendly, the breakfast is great, and in general everything works except the reception/check-out.

          Friday morning check-out was a chaos - the lobby is too small for queuing and only 3 receptionists were working so people had to wait for a long time to check out and could not even fit in the lobby properly to do that! This is really badly planned as if the architect did not understand the hotel system - or the hotel cannot afford the staff. This would be my very favourite hotel in Hamburg and I will give it another chance but if the check-out is as bad next time, I will become one frequent visitor lost forever. The blue light in the lift is supposed to bring atmosphere but I believe all customers felt odd: the light is exactly like in toilets where blue light is used to prevent drug addicts from injecting themselves - not a very premium feeling.
