Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Nice and clean rooms. Would recommand this hotel when visiting Hamburg. We stayed in the hotel with a group of friends. When entering the hotel and asking for the room key it was impossible to have a second key (we shared rooms with 3 people per room). Only solution that was advised by... More

This is a modest hotel, but the staff were great and the location also. You are literally within walking distance of the town center. If you get into Hamburg and it's too early to check-in, there's a tour bus stop outside the hotel, where you can get a taste of the city and thus influence your priorities whilst there.at this...

Clean and comfortable hotel, close to Congress Center, underground to Airport, train station and City Centre. Acceptable breakfast (you can find it better in Germany in similar hotels) and very clever and nice personel. A good place in Hamburg

I would give this hotel 3.5 stars if I could. This is a very hard hotel to describe. It is quite clean but the furnishings are dated (I would not describe the furnishings as Art Deco, just dated), as is the carpet, and the closet was shockingly dated - it looked like it was made by a high schooler in...

I am still at this Hotel and have to say it was a good booking. The staff are so friendly and the room is a good size for a single occupant room, very clean and tidy. Although I had some disturbance from noise of what sounded like music, as I love the sound of traffic which my room os on... More

Great downtown location and friendly staff! Room also OK, but unfortunately the beds are not good for my body. Breakfst average. All in all I was happy to find a place in the area at a very busy weekend.

Clean and tidy, huge room with beautiful breakfast of high quality food. The Art Deco style of the hotel was like stepping back in time. We got parked over the road so we could see the car from the hotel. The late check out time made for a relaxing morning. We had a room at the back of the hotel... More

I stayed at Alster Hof Hotel in July. It was quite warm and the hotel offered no air conditioning. Apart from this, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. My room rate was much less than I expected, and this included a buffet breakfast, which was excellent. The location of the hotel was amazing. The hotel was near Hamburg University, the... More

The hotel is very well situated, within walking distance from the lower Alster and beyond it the old city, and very close to buses, Ubahn and S-bahn stations. Breakfast had a big variety of items, most cold, but also scrambled eggs and sussages. The only unpleasnat surprise that we had was that there was no airconditioning and, unfortunately for us,...

The Alsterhof is a typical 3 star German hotel, well furnished, a little threadbare in places, but everything works, is clean and well maintained; the bedroom good, the bathroom excellent, the view from the window non existent. Breakfast was generous with a wide selection of breads, meats, berries, juices eggs etc. The location on the Alster is good. An interesting... More
