Nice lokation

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Kim Couples - 11/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Usual Ibis standard Fantastic lokation

Good stay but a few technical blips

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Kim2021 Couples - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was comfortable and functional. Unfortunately, the light in the bathroom gave off a zapping/crackling noise when turned on and the lights didn't turn on immediately a few times. Plus, the room didn't get as cool as it should have and the Internet went out on the second day of my stay. Because I couldn't figure out how to call the front desk from the phone, I didn't tell anyone from the hotel staff (I emailed them afterward.). I would happily stay at this hotel again.

Well-located but badly maintained

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Peter A. C. K. Couples - 02/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful and trustworthy. The hotel room was extremely small. The interior design was a disaster. In such a small room, clean colours would have given the impression of more space. Instead busy patterns behind the television made television difficult to enjoy. A dark red wall and dark carpeted (unhygienic) made the room seem even smaller. The shower although mostly warm if one showered early in the morning was not clean. The water did not drain away and one stood in a pool of water which took at least 15 minutes after showering to drain. The blockage or whatever caused it was not pleasant and also very unhygienic. On the positive side, breakfast was good and adequate and the dining area was clean and comfortable. We were booked into the hotel for five nights but had to leave a day earlier to get a train to Augsburg because of the rail strike. We were not charged for the fifth night and we appreciate the gesture. We do hope that something is done about the state of the hotel, dirty carpets in the passage, the shower and unhygienic carpet in the bedroom at least for a start. The wonderful staff deserve better working conditions.

The hotel is well located near the station and the Alster. The premises ( 70s with an antique elevator) and services ( 1 towel only, no bed-making) are 2* which I am not quite used too. The personnel was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good.

Two days in the heart of Hamburg. Friendly, efficient, clean

Convenient location with parking

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Alex Families - 16/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The location is convenient, 10-15 min walk to the old city center. Parking is available, but it was very difficult to find a free parking space. Very nicely working air conditioner! There was even a view to the lake from our room.

Very well located, very helpful staff

Stayed 3 nights, hotel is right by the beautiful lake I the centre of Hamburg. The staff were very helpful, despite the hotel being immensely busy - including posting on my running gear which I accidentally left:)

Small room but ok for a short stay. Pillows were excellent. Facilities for sitting outside could have been better. Breakfast was ok.

Door cards dont work and partly unfriendly staff at reception

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Christian Business - 29/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

- door keys did work 4 times during my very short stay. This is inacceptable. I had only a few hours of sleep and then spending my energy on running the 4 floors up and down 4 times until the door card is working ia simply impossible. - Oleg at the reception is totally not client oriented. I asked him a few times for an early check in. He did nit even try to sell it and simlply send me away and i should wait from 1 to 3 until any room would be ready. Please note : I was was already traveling since 4am!!! - When he want away from the reception i asked the colleague Mariam if there is any chance of checking in and it was immediately possible!! She was very kind onntop. Sorry Oleg, but for this behavior you should be fired.

No N. Solo - 22/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The beds are worn out and it was impossible to sleep without waking up with back pain. The hotel did not come across as clean. Very noisy hotel, impossible to sleep. The cleaning lady walked Into my room in the morning at 9.30 without knocking or any sign. Price too high compared to the experience. The only plus is location.

Ideal location

Stephen W Couples - 23/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Conveniently situated for Hauptbahnhof, Alster Lake and city centre; an ideal base from which to explore the city. Good breakfast choices including eggs and bacon. Would recommend this hotel and stay here again.

Hamburg on a short break

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

valmyartus Couples - 12/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Ibis standard as expected, clean, functional and convenient for all the main interesting sites in Hamburg. Breakfast service can be a little overwhelming depending on the number of guests arriving at the same time. Staff is friendly and the welcome drink for Accor members was a fine touch. Also a major plus was the air conditioning system that actually works.

Dirty Bathroom

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

koehein Family - 26/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Sadly, the management doesn't seem to take care of the rooms. Dirty bathroom with mould stains and much more. Reception desk is helpless, but management needs to take care of this. Not acceptable, no recommendation.

Very good localization both central station and city center.

The hotel is located at a very peaceful street, near de central station and the main commercial street in Hamburg. The room is very confortable and the bar at the reception desk is also very nice. I really liked to stay there.

mariodirani Family - 22/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Silent place, near the Central Railway Station, where you can find access to the subway, and in front of which departs the Hop on Hop off bus (I recommend Line A). Good breakfast, comfortable bed. Good options of restaurants nearby the hotel. Avoid rooms at the end of the corridor: there is a stair in the middle of it.

Good location, comfortable bed

Lesly H Couples - 25/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Our room had side views to the lake. Compact standard Obis styles decor, excellent bed and good shower. Reasonable breakfast and short walk to the station. Good bar area with buzzing atmosphere. Quiet area right opposite the Stlantic Kempinski.
