Very good hotel - converted school building and enough quirkiness (the odd school desk, arithmetic symbol clocks and chalk signage) to be fun without irritating. The room was large, comfortable and well decorated. Shower was very good, in a large bathroom (with heated towel

The room and breakfast were up to standard, howeverthe TV options are nill in English as it's non satellite. The reception staff were a little rude unlike the breakfast staff who were all friendly and very polite. Two metro stations near by takes you into the very centre of

We got to the hotel early (a bit before 2pm) because we were travelling from a long distance. When we got to the reception, we were told the rooms aren't ready before 3pm and were asked if we wanted a map of Hamburg. We had suitcases and had just travelled, we didn't plan to go

Dear Cedric R, thank you for your stay. We can guarantee the rooms from 3 p.m., because the check out time is until 11 a.m. All rooms must be cleaned and are personally controlled by our housekeeping manager. We always try to clean the rooms as soon as possible. Of course you can leave the luggage at the reception if you want to visit the city earlier. Free coffee is available in the lobby. We are sorry if it was apparently communicated wrongly here. We would be glad to convince you of our service quality during a further stay and we wish you a good time. Your hotel team

This was an excellent choice for a base from which to explore Hamburg. We arrived before noon just to park and go into the city but they already had our room ready and allowed us to check in.. Nice! The breakfast is amazing and a great way to start your day. Pros: Clean,

Does the hotel have a guest laundry?
Hello William, I'm not sure, sorry. I think to remember having seen a laundry bag, but I see too many hotels to really tell all of them apart if the visit has been a while back. What I do remember is the front desk being very helpful and getting out of their way to at least look for an alternate solution. Enjoy your stay Paul

Hello there, Breakfast was included in our rate. I'm not sure if it will be for any rate. They offer a pretty decent breakfast. Traveling from the airport can be done by taxi or public transport. By public transport appeared to be surprisingly easy. There's a train station at the airport, follow the signs. There are ticket machines in the airport arrivals hall, but also down the stairs in the train station. It's convenient to pick up a map with the train lines and stations along the way. If you pay attention you'll find them available. Take the train until Berliner Tor. Here you have to switch trains. Follow the signs for the right line number (U2, U4). It requires you to almost leave the station before to go down. Get of at Rauhes Haus. Walk back into the direction. If where the train came from along the big street. Cross it as well. Right after the Best Western you walk into the parking lot of Volksschule. It's also possible to walk around the hotel and take the next street (there's a Lidl supermarket) to get to the backside of the hotel. There's an entrance here as well. Enjoy your stay
