booked for 2 overnights on a recommendation. Must say my fault, since I always in the past booked hotels instead of B&B. This being said, arrived on a Friday at abt. 11 a.m. First impression, not the cleanest place, odd smelling, breakfast room idle, not yet cleaned up, my wife had to use the groundfloor toilet, incredibly dirty ! The lady owner not amused about our remark, we finally decided to stay at least one night. Downstairs room have to say clean, spacious, a minus being sanitary/shower all within 2 square meter, so one person in/one person out. No elevators in building, not easy to handle luggage from basement to ground floor or 1st. floor. Breakfast for 2 persons served on ONE normal plate, nothing extraordinary, standard orange juice, no eggs at all, 2 cups of coffee within price, additional cup= 2 € SO we decided to book a hotel on short notice for 2nd overnight. Icing on the cake… found SOFITEL Alter Wall right in the town-centre at a straight € 177,- breakfast included. Room/breakfast at its best !! btw… Paid Kleines Schwarzes € 144,- breakfast included. NOTHING MORE TO ADD !

A charming place. Almost perfect. Traffic noise, though, when you keep the windows open at night. And it's not located downtown. However, the neighborhood is nice. The rooms are small, the price is elevated (also for the breakfast - 12.50), but that's Hamburg, I guess. I'd recommend Das kleine Schwarze, nevertheless for all who love to avoid the "ever the same"-design of big hotel chains. I loved the photographs in the breakfast room.

Spend 2 nights here. Modern decorations but with extremely unfriendly owner, too high handed and arrogant. With the price we paid I think we can get much better serivce elsewhere. I will not recommend to stay here!

Spent four nights here in October 2012 on my first visit to Hamburg. I was at first unsure whether the location would be a little out of the way but was proven wrong thanks to the city's fantastic U-Bahn network and the convenient location of the B&B - just a 5 minute walk to the nearest stop. Journey time into the city centre and other areas of interest was 15 minutes max. Location is quiet and residential, set back from the buzz of the centre. The B&B itself is beautifully decorated - simple design with very unique style. The rooms and corridors are full of original artwork and photography, giving the place a real homely feel and is full of character. The room was comfortable (particularly the bed - double bed with two individual duvets, much to my partner's delight!) bright, and the perfect temperature. The bathroom was clean and full of lovely eco-friendly products, plus a hairdrier for the ladies! We had breakfast on two of the four mornings, which we found a little pricey at €10 per person however almost seemed worth it for the personal touch being served by the B&B owner Ralph and chatting to him over coffee. Breakfast was beautifully presented and consisted of bread, meats and cheeses, fruit and yohurt, and delicious coffee. My only (very minor) qualm was that there was no tea & coffee in the room, it would have been nice to just help ourselves. I felt this was the only thing missing from an otherwise perfect stay. Thanks to the owners for making it a really pleasant and comfortable trip! I'd definitely return.

Stayed at DKS in October 2012 for a long weekend visiting friends in Hamburg. The location of the B&B is in a great location, in the suburban Eimsbüttel area, which is both residential and quiet: A complete difference to the popular St Pauli, Sternschanze and town centre areas which offer a host of places to stay. The B&B is a 5 minute walk from the nearest tube stop (Emilienstrasse), and journey time to the Hauptbahnhof (Hamburg main station) was a little over 10 minutes. More importantly, Emilienstrasse is just two stops away from Schlump, where you can change to the U3, and visit the St Pauli and Sternschanze areas for bars and restaurants - only 15 mins journey time total. The B&B itself is very modern, and our room was very neatly presented. The beds were really comfortable, and the en-suite was just the right size with a lovely shower. On your arrival to the B&B, you are provided with a key code to get into the front door where your key awaits. Thereafter, the key provides access to both the building and your room. As per the above, Eimsbüttel is a very residential area, so you certainly feel safe, particularly at night. You can let the owners know if you wish to have breakfast the night before. Breakfast itself is served in a lovely kitchen/diner area at the back of the building, which looks onto the small garden. Ralph (who owns the B&B with his wife Bettina, who together live on the top floor of the building) served our breakfast on the two occasions we chose to eat there. A delicious coffee and standard continental breakfast of cold meats, breads and cheese. Whilst not the cheapest place to stay in Hamburg, I cannot recommend this place enough for anybody who is looking to visit the city and rest in comfort. The only negatives: Breakfast is a little pricey at €10 per person, for not a huge amount of food. For less than that yo can dine quite substantially in the Sternschanze/Feldstrasse area, however, that is reliant upon local knowledge to know where to go! Despite the price though, the dining area is very comfortable and laid back, and the coffee was amazing. Although the area is residential, there is a busy dual carriageway at the end of the road the B&B is on. If you were to stay in summer and need to open your window, it is likely the noise of traffic would be quite loud. That being said, I know from experience that hot days are few and far between in Hamburg, and rain is most likely to greet you at some point: the likelihood of you sweltering at night is minimal, and as we visited in October we were fine! All in all, a great place to visit. Off the beaten track, and not part of soulless global chain. Great work Bettina and Ralph: thank you for having us!
