I stayed in "Alte Wache" hotel 2 nights for working reasons, arriving by taxi from the apt. The kindness, courtesy and service efficiency of the gentleman and the lady at the reception deserve a top rate. They both are a great example of care and warm hospitality, making every guest feel really welcomed. The lobby is nice in its old fashion style, the double room is spacious, perfectly clean and silent; breakfast was very good, and much better than some 4stars hotel: the tea blend selections very appreciated and the fresh flower on the tables a lovely, precious gift!! 2 small suggestions: 1) the morning waitress should be a little bit more smilying; 2) do not accomodate a person alone in a dinner table for 6. The hotel is also extremely close to city center (walking distance), so I really reccomend it!!

It was a pleasure to return to this hotel the staff were as ever exceedingly helpful and professional Thecovid 19 restrictions were being enforced throughout the hotel with tables having to be booked for all meals . an excellent menu for the evening meal was first-rate and the normal Continental Breakfast was fulfilling and in abundance. I will recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Hamburg and indeed I am looking forward to my next trip in November.

I was given a TINY, prison-style single room on the street level; the furnishings were literally from the 80s and the bed was hard and uncomfortable. I was really disappointed because the room didn't look at all like the picture I saw on hotels.com. And my booking said "twin" bed so I assumed there would be two beds in the room. When I raised this issue, the reception lady with glasses adopted a hostile attitude. She refused to allow me to cancel the reservation so I could find a different (better) hotel. Even after Hotels.com got involved, calling the hotel to plead on my behalf, the management were completely resolute in their refusal to do anything. This isn't a hotel that cares about it guests. All they care about is ripping you off. A deeply unplesant experience. Don't stay here!

Check-in went very, very fast. The 1 person room is very basic but clean. Shower has very good water pressure. The hairdryer was impractical but I managed to dry my hair with it. Hotel is close to the Hbf.

Some have posted on this site that the rooms at Alte Wache reminded of the 1970s but I would respectfully suggest that the rooms more clearly reflect the early sixties. Indeed my room was very small and the “bed” not much more than a bunk and the mattress rather thin and a bit lumpy (what was that poking through in spots?). The bathroom was also a bit too small with the shower being a special experience. You needed to turn the shower off in order to soap yourself and when it was on, there was always the danger that your back would hit the lever and you’d scald yourself. I have an ordinary toilette bag and there was no counter space sufficient to store it. The daily breakfast buffet cost an extra 10 euros and I would recommend that those staying at Alte Wache find a local alternative where, for the same money, you’ll find a much better breakfast. First, the various cold cuts on offer were nothing better than second rate and I’m being generous. The breads (there were many- it’s Germany after all) were decent enough, as were the sliced and individually packaged cream cheeses. The jams, yogurts, crepes & waffles were all low rent but the worst was yet to come. I made the mistake of sampling the Nürnberger breakfast sausages and fried “ham” from the warming trays. Both were overly salted but what was with that ham? It felt more like a slice of fried slurry, the bloody stuff sticking to my teeth as I tried to chew it. Disgusting. In the neighbouring tray sat, in a bath of fetid water, scrambled “eggs” almost orange in colour. This suggested powdered eggs. Worse still, rather than taking the tray to the kitchen and replacing it, staff came out and dumped bowls of more of the same “eggs” into the same trays. Entirely unhygienic. The coffee and tea were both decent. Someone mentioned in their post that there are a large number of immigrants in the area of the hotel. I’m not certain what this individual meant to suggest but this is no reason to not stay at Alte Wache. There was simply no threat from the community and in fact a large number of the businesses in the area are run by immigrants who contribute to the greater good. Alte Wache is staffed by lovely, helpful people and the rooms were clean but small. In fact for a moment I felt as if I’d landed in Tokyo again. If you’re on a budget you’ll find the experience and location reasonable...just find another breakfast.

Hotel has a good location for train and underground. Is located in a bad neighbourhood with a lot of imigrants, beggars and homeless people. Hotel is a bit worn down and my room was very small. If you want something in the bar you have to go to the reception who then will call a waiter. Breakfest was fine. A bit noisy. I think the underground goes right under the hotel.

A tricky hotel to sum up as I had a happy and pleasant enough stay here, the staff were all very helpful and the breakfast highly enjoyable. I slept well enough too, despite slight concerns over exterior noise and the less than salubrious location (at least at first glance). However, other than the bathroom (which was excellent) my room was very basic, small and clearly long overdue for remodelling or renovation. I'd not seen room decor like that since the 1970s. The bed was especially poor, and I was somewhat afraid I wouldn't sleep well on it - although I did. My room, while listed as non-smoking had the air of one in which smoking had been conducted for many years - as this triggered my allergies rather badly, meaning I woke up coughing a number of times. While my stay here was mostly acceptable, I confess I would think twice about booking to stay here again.

The hotel reminds one of the seventies which all its charm. The rooms are clean and comfortable with all amenities. Very good was the breakfast which I couldn't enjoy enough to my schedule. The location is close to Hamburg main shopping street but also close to St Georg which is still famous for hookers, drug addicts and dealers. Just stay away from it and you will be fine.

As usual, a really warm welcome when you arrive at this Hotel! the staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful. I stay here about 6 times a year because of the exceptional quality and low prices, which are surprising when you consider the fact that Hamburg is Germany's second largest city. ITs no wonder that this Hotel is always fully booked or 'Over booked' and has a list of reserves waiting for cancellations. The Hotel is within walking distance of the Hauptbahnhof or Central station, but if you are driving then there is a secure car park at the the back of the Hotel. My tip would be to try the Wiener Schnitzel, I had it on Friday night and it was without a shadow of a doubt, the best one I have ever had. I will continue to book well in advance for my stays in Hamburg. Low prices and excellent quality and value for money.
