Anonymous....same as one in casablanca as far as I remember. Pure novotel standard if don't want to have surprises, clean modern and central, but do now expect something exceptional. Few poor choice for dinner, good food, but few choices. One word:fair

Stayed (Nov 12/13) and found the hotel in a decent location; directly next to the Ubahn (10-15 mins to the Harbour). There isn't much around but given the proximity to the underground it's ok. Guest services was pretty good and the check-in was quick and easy. Only surprise was that parking was €17 per night.

We had a great stay at the hotel. The rooms were nice and clean and the location was pretty good, as the U-bahn station was rightoutside the entrance. The breakfast was also really good. The best scrambled eggs I have ever had.

I am an Accor gold card holder and a regular user of Novotel, so I know what standards to expect. I also visit Hamburg regularly, and to date have always stayed at the Suite Novotel about 200 yards away from this Novotel. I have always been happy with the Suite Novotel offering, but decided to try the Novotel for a...

Very nice hotel, real 4*. Nice room, clean and quiet. Beeakfast is really rich and very good. Hotel's restaurant is also offering tasty food; try mushroom soup. :) Hotel's personnel might try to smile from time to time!

Novotel Alster is keeping highest level of Novotel standards in the hotel chain. Rooms are fully equipped, in every room is as shower so bath and best in the Novotel is breakfest, where is wide choice and allways usefull more for brucnch then as just breakfest. Can recommend as for business, so for couples or families.

Stayed here on business, excellent location, minutes away from centre of hamburg on u-bahn. Rooms very comfortable, clean, good size. Wi fi free but not very reliable. Breakfast was excellent but expensive at 21 euros each. Bar was pretty good too.

The booked room was a smoker room (which is disgusting for any non-smoker). The design of the bathroom is daft. When taking a shower you will flood the bathroom and the way the water crane is installed makes the use of the wash hand basin super unhandy. The staff at the reception is something between arrogant and rude.

The location is ok. Not much in the immediate vicinity but it is very close to the lubeckstrasse U bahn station. We were able to walk to a great restaurant about 8 mins away, close to the lake. Sagners bistro. The room, made up for the family of four, was very small and cramped though. We had a double bed...
