Located in the Rotherbaum neighborhood of Hamburg and within walking distance of Hamburg University and the CCH trade fair grounds the Vorbach combines several 19th century villas in quiet Johnsallee. The rooms vary quite widely in size and character so it is useful to inquire beforehand. All of them, however, will have the necessary functionality and a certain charm and... More

The two nights we stood at this hotel where a real pleasure! Everything worked fine, the huge room was superb, the breakfast (extra) was rich and the service was very good, Everything was clean and shining,

This hotel is located at a street corner, very near the Von-Melle Park of the University of Hamburg, the Dammtor Station and the Congress Center of Hamburg. I was given a corner room that was huge, with a high ceiling and has a great view. Unfortunately, there is no air conditioning. Hence, you hear the street noise at night, as... More

I stayed here while on a business trip to Hamburg University as it is next to the campus. It is a charming old hotel with character and bizarrely numbered rooms (listen carefully when they tell you which floor you are on because you won't work it out from your room number!) There's a little lift down the stairwell. I decided... More

Increasingly, all the large hotel brands have developed a cookie cutter sameness to their product. So, it was a real pleasure to experience the Hotel Vorbach. The atmosphere enhances the visit. While all the modern amenities are there, and quite up to date, there is a warm comfort to the establishment. Breakfasts are wonderful, and a great small bar in... More

This hotel is conveniently located near the university in Hamburg. The staff was quite helpful. The hotel is divided into two parts and one must exit the hotel, if one is in the "annex" part to go to the reception. In inclement weather it is not convenient at all. The breakfast is good.

The hotel is placed in a very posh area close to the university. In view of the latter, it is strange that the room did not have a proper desk; many visitors would need a place for their laptop or reading and writing. This hotel may be one of the last to offer writing paper and envelopes, but why without... More

This hotel seems to occupy parts of a row of apartment houses near the university. This gave it, for me, a somewhat homely feel. I enjoyed the sense of space in the high-ceilinged, spacious room and the bathroom. There was a kitchen too, so I could have catered for myself. Copious breakfast. Clean and comfortable. Functional rather than charming. Efficient,... More

A good three star hotel. Very clean, small and cozy, in a quiet area, near the university. No additional facilities like spa or restaurant. Minimal lobby space but very helpful polite staff and an excellent breakfast. Free wi fi.

Without the breakfast, this hotel would be just another decent unremarkable hotel that meets your expectations but that you forget quickly. It appears to have been recently remodeled and the bathroom was very modern, with all the expected amenities. The rooms are on the small side, but perfectly comfortable. Power outlets are convenient. The regular wifi is too slow to... More
