I understand the hotel is being renovated... But there was a definite "Last Century" feel to it (like my boys would say)… I like Novotel, specially in Europe, for its youthful service and funky setups... So this was a little bit disconcerting... Of note, I had one of the best

Nice, fairly new hotel with great room facilities. The Internet is standard and is more than adequate for streaming Live TV. The location is within good reach via the S1 from the airport and also is close to the U1 for further possibilities straight towards the harbor. Very

Hello annacX5072BE, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your trip through Hamburg and your stay in our house with us. I am sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations when it came to the service quality in the restaurant, as well as the gluten free menu. The online description of our restaurant can be misleading as there is no separate menu for gluten free dishes, though some dishes on our menu are gluten free. Alternatively our service and kitchen team help you gladly and try to find something that fits your needs even when it is not on the menu. I hope that you visit us again on your next trip to Hamburg, so can we can convice you of our service and products. Kind regards, Rene Ykema Generalmanager

First time in Hamburg for myself and my wife and took the S Bahn (local above ground train) from the airport to the hotel. Bit confusing trying to get the tickets from the machine but we were lucky enough (depending on what you consider lucky) to get some help from a guy who

Hello IAM88, Thank you for the recommendation. It was a pleasure reading through your detailed review. Not only of our hotel but also the city of Hamburg and your experience during the christmas market times. I am glad to know that my colleagues from the reception were able to convince you of their service qualities. It is unfortunate that the service at the bar was slower than you were expecting it, even when it was not busy. On behalf my team, I would like to welcome you again anytime in our house and hopefully convice you even more of our hotel and the beauty of Hamburg. Kind regards, Rene Ykema Generalmanager

Hi! Do you have rooms suitable for families of 4 people (2 adults and 2 13 year olds)? Thanks!
We saw several families and even dogs in the hotel so I would guess they would have a room that would suit you. Be sure to ask for a room at the back of the hotel it is very much quieter.

hi, how do you get from the hotel to the old city? are there buses,trains , etc
The hotel is 10 minute walk to good restraurants.. The location is central and the hotel is comfortable with good staff and facilities. There are bus stop close by but we walked to most places. The hotel is typical 4 star and value for money. We were very satisfied.

Hi, like the other answer I also didn't see or expect (a hotel of this quality to have) a coin operated launderette. I didn't need the services of laundry cleaning during my stay in hamburg. I think there will be a public one within 2km.

"Higher up and to the back worked for us from a noise perspective"
"Ask for a room opposite the road"
"You will have to be on top of the room and bar service staff to get what. You need."
"We had a family room to the street side, which is a bit noisy when the windows are open. With closed windows it is quiet."
"the back side should be quieter since it's not on the busy street"
