You are in a big town but feel like in a forest. The hotel is situated at a car free island in Hamburg near public transport. All in the hotel goes to ecological lifestyle. But I think its one of the most recommendable hotels in Hamburg. Very friendly staff, only the restaurant inside is not so well. But you are...

I visited Hamburg with my parents mainly to go to the minataur wonderland and visit the Christmas markets and this hotel was perfect for that. Location: less than 5 minutes walk from the S Bahn (Wilhelmsburg) so perfect to get into Hamburg for the day. Some train noise at night but not so loud to be a problem. The hotel...

The best is the building itself and the modern urban surroundings. I had an upgrade to a very spacious room, wonderfully decorated and with the right temperature thanks to the open windows and the pressure in the room. Friendly staff, very fast and to the point. Parking is very close to the hotel and you can get a discount on...

We stayed in this hotel for one night. We had a city trip to Hamburg. The S-bahn station is 5 min walk from the hotel and then 10 min to the main train station of Hamburg. Free parking at the hotel (refund). Nice rooms with modern wooden furniture and ceiling. Very friendly staff. Breakfast good but bit expensive.

It is located a bit outside of the city center, so I´d say you need a car. With that said, it is a very nice hotel, in an nice enviroment, with a lot of green open space around it. A very "cool" hotel, with a lot ot Wood and Concrete. I will come back again, very good brakfast too. Maybe...

Great for morning jogging! - very friendly ladies at the reception. Things to improve: - housekeeping came without knocking into the room twice the same...

We stayed here for five days and it was perfect! The room was very nice and so comfortable pillows! The staff was friendly and helped you if you had any questions. On rainy days they lent us an umbrella from the reception. I would really recommend this place. Close to the train station and 10 min to central station. Really...

We stayed there for three days as part of our holiday in Hamburg. The hotel is situated in a new (2013) Eco development and is itself run along Eco lines. It is an interesting departure from the usual hotel and the staff were exemplary. The hotel is a short train journey into Hamburg and the service is frequent. The room...

I stayed here recently for one night as part of a work trip. We had hired one of the exhibit rooms for an event. This is a fascinating eco hotel in newly developed area of Hamburg. This was my first visit to the city and a great introduction. It was approximately 30 minutes by cab from the airport. I was...

We have looked at this place several times, but now was the time when we finally decided to give it a go - and we did not regret it. Although it is a little hard to find if you come from the parking lot as there is no signage, the hotel's appearance is very unique. It is a mix between...
