Novum Hotel Continental Hamburg Hauptbahnhof

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just a walking distance to the central station of Hamburg. The reception was fast. The elevator/lift was so old school and it is a wow! 😍😍 The room was small but it was comfortable for both of us. The clealiness is okay. I have no issue with noise. My room is at level 5. The bathroom was super huge. The shower and shampoo gel was so good! The breakfast spread was modest and as Muslims, we don't have issues with it. And in fact, this hotel area is very near to many Muslims eateries. Maybe the only two things that are so-so were my window's view and there is not free mineral water provided. Overall it was comfortable experience for both of us. Would recommend this place to budget conscious travelers that need comfortable place to bunk in for few days.

I had a solo one night stay recently. As I was travelling around the country by train its location just over the road from Hamburg main station was ideal. The room was slightly dated but comfortable and functional. A little warm in the heat and no fan was provided, however my window faced a side street so noise wasn't too much of a problem through the night. Breakfast was the usual continental affair with plenty of things on offer, no problems at all.

Directly opposite main train station. Our large room was on the road but with the windows shut we hardly heard any noise. The staff were helpful, breakfast was decent. Only real negative is the room was very hot and we had no fan.

We stayed here for 3 nights in late May. We booked a small double room, and that is what we got, so no problems there. It was clean and the shower was good, and there was a strong wifi signal. However, our room was at the front of the hotel, overlooking the Hauptbahnhof, and because the weather was warm (about 18-22 degrees) and the room was also really warm, we needed to have the window open all night, and it was very noisy, especially Saturday and Sunday nights. To be honest, having the window shut didn't make a whole lot of difference to the noise level. Breakfast was good, with friendly staff. The staff at reception were, with one exception, barely polite. The hotel is in a great location, right by the main station, and the hop on-hop off buses go from there too. However, you do pay for that location with noise. I would love to visit Hamburg again but would try another hotel.

This location for the gay scene is absolutely fabulous. It is in walking distance to almost everything. But at the arrival was not at all pleasant. The lady at the front desk didn't even asked if there was spoken another language than German .. she only spoke in German and I did not understood so much !!

We spent one night in the hotel, it is in the very center and allows you access whatever you are looking for in the city. Receptionists were a bit unpolite during checkin and checkout for no reason. The bed was good!

The hotel is located next to the main train station and close to the must see sights of the city. Spacious and clean rooms. The breakfast buffet has a large variety of food - the quality is rather average, though. The reception staff do not seem to be very entusiastic about their jobs.

We ordered a tripple room in the fourth floor. We were met by an unpleasant odour that we thought would leave if we just had the window open. It didn't and we had to leave the window open for all the days we lived there. Luckily the weather was mild and we had a window against the backyard and we were not bothered by noice. The smell appeared as coming from the bathroom. There is no drain on the floor in the bathroom and it had only a shower curtain, so be careful to not spill water on the floor. Except from that the bathroom was very clean and modern. The room was clean and the furniture was simple and modern. The room was dark and we were missing proper reading lights. The breakfast was ok but except tomatoes there were no other vegetables. The staff is kind and polite. This is a hotel you choose for the location only. It is situated just across the street to the main railway station with both S-bahn, U-bahn and the bus terminal real close. We had a reasonable price bargain but got not more than we paid for. We would not come back.

For the price I payed, I expected a much better stay. Room was very small, didn't really feel good there. It was quite clean and breakfast was acceptable. I would only go there if nothing else is available.

Room was really to small, old decoration, no air conditioner. Even when you sit on toilet my knee was hitting pipe from the sink. No space to walk or leave suitcase. I will definitely never come back and in the end PRICE 650 euro/day !!!!!!!
