I am not a huge fan of standardized chain hotels, and I am absolutely no fan of small rooms. Motel One has both. Still I loved this one and would always book this particular one because - I needed to meet a business partner on two days for six hour meetings. We sat at the community table in the lobby - stylish, sort of quiet, but surrounded by the most friendly staff you can imagine. - the staff wowed me. They really did. Now, why "only" four stars then? In my rating scheme, five stars is extraordinary. While the rooms were stylish and perfectly clean - extraordinary is more. To give five starts, I must be willing to make a detour of 30 mins or more just to go there. I highly recommend this particular hotel though. it is within walking distance to Alster Lake and in the Hohenfelde area. Also, walking distance to St. Georg area where there is a nice variety of restaurants. Bonus-there is a train stop right in front & can be taken to the airport (1/2 hour) and the city center is 5-10 minutes. Parking is €18 :-(

The good thing about Motel One is that you always know what to expect. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. Great bathrooms. We stayed here for one night when our train out of Hamburg was cancelled due to the storm. We arrived Sunday evening and everything around was closed except for one East Asian restaurant across the street. The lobby seemed to be a popular place to hang out. Breakfast the next morning was nice - bread, pastries, hard boiled egg, cereal, yogurt, fruit salad, cheese and cured meats. They offer lactose free milk and oat "milk" which is a big plus. Service was mostly great and accommodating except the guy at reception the night we checked in who I found to be rude and aggressive (I was stressed as it is due to the last minute train cancellation and his response to my question nearly made me cry).

This hotel is very cosy - especially the bar / lobby area is splendid. It's nice to have a beer there. Rooms are also of good quality - well isolated windows, well working air conditioning. Nothing worn out. Breakfast was also good - not splendid as there were no warm dishes. But a plus to bio quality. Garage available and very safe one. Price quality ratio excellent. Will come back some day.

We stayed in a motel one in Berlin and decided to try the main in Hamburg, and we where glad we did. Excellent location with the underground just outside. As always excellent service in the hotel and excellent rooms with all the required amenities. Great value for money and we will stay with them again.

This place is a typical Motel One: modern, reasonably equipped, absolutely clean, with kind staff, nice lobby/breakfast area which unfortunately doesn't fit all the guests interested in breakfast in peak periods. But it's cozy refuge for the good night drink. And breakfast problem is easily solvable: a good bakery, open 7 days a week is just across the street. The location is very good for many activities, one U-Bahn stop from the main railway station, close to Alster.
