Perfect for traveling around Hamburg

2 minute walk from the train station, easy to get to from Hamburg airport, easy check in and plenty of facilities.very accomodating and staff were great. Only criticism would be the late check out, need to communicate with the cleaners to avoid all the sleep interruptions. Overall, cracking place and just the job
