The Alster-Hof is a Quality Hotel in Hamburg

A Solid Mid-Priced Hotel

The Hotel Alster-Hof Hamburg is a solid mid-priced hotel that draws consistently positive reviews from guests. The hotel offers clean, comfortable rooms, pleasant decor, a good location, and good service. The Alster-Hof isn’t super stylish or especially luxurious, but guests appreciate that the hotel is dependable and always provides a relaxed, comforting experience. It’s an especially good option for solo travelers and business guests.

Close to Shopping and Public Transportation

The Alster-Hof offers a front-row seat to the attractions of Hamburg. The hotel is located close to the city’s port and to the warehouse district. Jungfernstieg, the area’s premiere shopping street, is just 500 meters away. Hamburg’s subway system and urban railways are close at hand, and the area is well-served by a variety of buses that connect you to all parts of the city.  

A Hearty Breakfast Is Included

A satisfying breakfast buffet gives you the energy you need to explore the city or to visit the hotel’s fitness center, sauna, and solarium. You’ll find the Botanical Garden less than five minutes away. The Congress Center of Hamburg is less than ten minutes away, and the Jungfernstieg shopping area is just over half a mile. There are lots of restaurants in the area surrounding the hotel, but you can choose to dine in the hotel restaurant if you prefer. The lounge at the Alster-Hof is a relaxing place to have a nightcap in the evening. 

Request an Upstairs Room With a View

Single rooms are available, which is a rare treat for solo travellers or business guests on a tight budget. The rooms are comfortable, and quite spacious by European standards. Furnishings are simple and utilitarian, but high-quality for this price point. Every room has a private bath, in-room safe, and a mini bar. Wi-fi is not one of the hotel’s strong points. Wi-fi service is available at an extra charge, but the wi-fi is not always as fast as business travelers might like. Tip: Ask for an upstairs room with a view of the lake for a tranquil, quiet experience.

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a dependable hotel that provides excellent service and a good night’s sleep in central Hamburg, The Alster-Hof will suit your needs. It’s not a flashy hotel, and lacks some of the bells and whistles of the most expensive and prestigious lodgings in the region, but offers high-quality lodging, with a good location for a very reasonable price.

Michelin Guide
This well cared for hotel is in the city centre, near to the Alster. It has functional guestrooms decorated in homely colours. These include sometimes rather small single rooms.
