Wonderful hotel in lovely part of Hamburg
This was our first (of hopefully many) trips to Hamburg. We chose the Romantik Hotel das Smolka due to its location on the street where some of my wife's relatives had lived before the Second World War. The hotel was wonderful and the room more than exceeded our expectations, being classically appointed but with modern state of the art facilities in the en-suite bathroom. The breakfast although relatively expensive compared to what we'd normally expect to pay was first class and I would have to say represented value for money. The staff were friendly and courteous and were able to understand us in both English and our limited German. The only potential issue when staying here is parking .The hotel has a small (8 vehicle spaces) car park, which is difficult to manoeuvre in to and out of when busy, and I would thoroughly recommend requesting a parking space when booking a room as on street parking on the surrounding streets is extremely limited due to the volume of vehicles in the area. This aside I would have no hesitation in recommending the Romantik Hotel das Smolka when staying in Hamburg.
