8/10 Very Good

Overall a nice stay
The hotel was overall a pleasant experience. It is within 5mins walking distance to the train station but we weren’t aware of any train noise. It was a surprisingly busy street even though it seemed like a small side street. It is just around the corner from the lake and park which has paths to walk and the option to hire boats. The breakfast area was clean and the staff there attentive and friendly. Good selection of bread cheese and meats as well as cereals. Breakfast was on from 6.30 - 11 at the wkend which meant we had time to do the local parkrun and return in time for food! The bedroom was small but the ceiling was high and the window opened wide so even in the heat we could cool the room. Room was clean but could do with an update especially the carpet.

Very disappointing stay
The room was very tiny, you could hear the neighbors talking loudly on the phone until past midnight, as clearly as if you were in the same room. The bathroom was incredibly narrow. The room's carpet was incredibly dirty. The mattress you could feel the springs through and the covers made me incredibly itchy. Continental breakfast could only be described as oh so very sad. I had a slice of what looked like turkey cold cuts, turns out it was just discolored ham. Perhaps identifying the items would be good in the future?
Door handles were damaged
Carpet was clearly very dirty. It had a faint smell and walking on it with white socks turned them grey.

Fint hotel
Hotellet er godt placeret tæt på banegården og tæt på mange gode restauranter. Fint område i centrum af Hamburg og dermed gå afstand til meget. Personalet var ret intet sigende, ikke meget smil eller hej og farvel når man kom og gik fra hotellet. Morgenmads buffeten var ganske fin, den havde det man skulle bruge for at starte dagen godt. Værelset var relativt småt, men fint til os, derudover er det temmeligt lydt, særligt fra gangen. Så medbring ørepropper, hvis du er lysfølsom. For at håndtere Corona bar restaurant personalet plastisk engangs handsker, hvilket blot gav en falsk tryghed, når de alligevel piller ved deres masker, krydser gæster af og drikker pause kaffen med de samme handsker uden at skifte, samtidig med at buffeten blev rettet og fyldt op.
