Hotel in a nice building, and good location close to the train station and with amazing views on the Alster. However, the rates for staying here are overpriced, as the hotel is in urgent need of a refresh due to the wear and tear (furniture in the rooms is cracked and damaged, the lift indicator at the lobby does not work and you do not know which of the two lifts is going down or up, etc). In addition, although breakfast is acceptable, it is not at the level of other luxury properties we have stayed at: no freshly squeezed orange juice, not much variety, etc. Finally, parking is expensive (37 euros/night), and lots of plastic is being wasted with the small amenities (shampoo, gel, conditioner…much better to use large recipients fixed in the walls and that can be refilled!). I would have to think it twice if I would stay here again.
