Exelent service and the new rooms are very nice, breakfast is good and plenty, but a lot of refurbishment going on at the moment, so that the pub was closed and the bar is not really they appealing. All in all a good place to stay.

The rooms were clean and nice, but a bit loud, and the bathroom was in good order too. In general, we got everything we needed. Friendly staff and good breakfast. Stayed here for 4 nights. The food is excellent for breakfast and also in the evening at the Blue Marlin restaurant.

To be fair to the management, they are trying to minimize the impact of the remodeling. I was not very happy when I booked in to my room at the same time as two of my work colleagues. We got three different standard rooms, and were charged two different rates. We brought this

is there a bus directly to City Alster from the airport?
I was dropped to the hotel and took a taxi to airport (30 Euro) so do not have first hand info. But I did ask about the public transport at the reception. There are frequent trains from airport to Hamburg HBF. The route is called S1 and the station nearest is called Hamburg Landwehr. From there she said there are frequent buses to the hotel. The station is 1.5 km or a 15 minute walk from the hotel. At that distance taxi and bus fares are probably the same, taxi might be even cheaper if you have company. Carry cash in euros, none of the taxis take credit cards.
