I stayed here whilst visiting Hamburg with friends. I had hoped that the Best Western brand would ensure a level of quality. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. Pros: - Good beds - Helpful staff - Close to Altona station Cons: - It was a bit expensive for what you got. - I booked a single room so didn't expect...

The superior room was fine but the best thing about the hotel is the location - walking distance to the fishmarket and the wider Alcona area. Alcona station is a rail hub for accessing much of the city and only 40 minutes from the Airport by S-Bahn. The staff were all friendly and helpful

Clean rooms, rather small but ok for a few nights. Nice staff. Breakfast is served next door but the place does a nice job. Typical German breakfast with everything you need to start a great day. The location of the hotel is also convenient for many reasons.

I stayed here for 11 nights on a business trip. The hotel is in a good location close to the Altona station; it's very easy to reach from the airport (about 45 mins via the S-Bahn) and from pretty much anywhere in Hamburg via public transport. There's a nice selection of restaurants nearby. My room was a good size, always...

The Best Western is a thoroughly decent place to stay, especially for business trips to Hamburg, though it does have some faults. Let's start with the positives. The room I had, and stayed in for four nights, was always clean and well kept. I had a particularly large room with a well sized bathroom as well. It has the common...
