IntercityHotel Hamburg Hauptbahnhof

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I really liked the room but the service was a bit careless.

The hotel is across the Hauptbahnhof ( rail road station) and the main shopping streets. Remember all InterCityHotels are presenting a ticket during your stay for U-S-Bahn and Bus, it is very convenient, so don't buy any one at the S-Bahn station. The Hotel is perfect and the ladies at the front desk are very nice and helpful. The Breakfast is fine but a bit pricy, but there are several shops around, if you go across the railroad bridge pass the "Ohnsorg Theater" you will find a good one across the next street.

Very friendly service. The location is excellent, obviously, since it's near the HBF. The room was nice and clean, but nothing special. Bed was very comfortable. Price was quite fair and was a good place to use as home base while I explored Hamburg for the day. Really, no complaints. I would consider staying there again.

Wonderful hotel that sits between the Rathaus, the lake and many of Hamburg ethnic middle eastern and jazz restaurants. There is underground subway station [U] next door. Hamburg central rail station is nearby as well for those who are more adventurous.

Perfect location!! Its close to train station, a pedestrian mall, and the lake. We stayed 2 nights. The rooms were quiet and clean. The AC wasnt working during our visit which made the room a little stuffy. They gave us two 3 day transit passes which was very handy for trains and a ferry ride around the harbor. Staff was very helpful in finding the cruise terminal location for our ship.

Location is good. Room was large, clean and comfortable. I just wasn't impressed with the staff. Not all that friendly.

I only stayed here on night but it was great. The location is ideal: across the street from the train station and a 10 minute walk to the old inner city. Upon my arrival they surprised me with a card that allowed me free travel on all Hamburg public transportation during my stay. A great added bonus and a helpful and friendly staff.

If you are a train lover and we are, this IS the place to stay. We love interCity Hotels and have stayed at the one in Frankfurt, Germany many times. Rooms are small but exceptionally clean. The breakfast buffets are SUPER, the service friendly and efficient. The price will WOW you. It was a super stay in a super hotel. Highly recommended.

We spent 2 nights in Hamburg. The hotel was selected due to its location to the central train station (Hautbahnhof), and we weren't disappointed. Two minutes after leaving the Hautbahnhof we were checking in. We showed up early for our check-in (13:00) and our room was ready. Our "L-Shaped" room was #812, at the end of the hall with our own access to the terrace. Room was spotless upon arrival and the hotel appears to have recently been renovated as everything was modern and efficient (except for the TV which was a CRT :). We had a mini-kitchenette at our disposal, with microwave oven, plates, cutlery, glasses and a mini refrigerator. So you could pick up a few items and have your own breakfast which would save you some money and inconvenience of finding a restaurant/café, if that's a concern. The hotel is centrally located with easy walking distance to the Rathaus and the posh shopping areas to the west across the bridge. We thought the €15 breakfast charge a little steep, so we opted to go to one of the many cafés in the area (you could even go back to the Hautbahnhof, which has a few to choose from as well). This hotel offers free public transportation in the price of the room, which is an added bonus. We didn't use it since we walked everywhere, but its there for you to use. The price of the hotel was reasonable. Let's face it: Hamburg is an expensive place in terms of accommodations, so we were happy with our choice. We highly recommend this hotel as it lived up to our expectations.
