Residential Location, but Near Lots of Activities

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 22, 2014

One of the hotels where I've enjoyed staying and placing friends in is Hotel NH Altona, which sits on the bordering neighborhoods of Bahrenfeld (to the West, with Grocery stores nearby), Altona (to the East), and Ottensen (to the South). The hotel is just steps away from bus stops for 2 major bus lines that run every 10 minutes: Bus # 2 that can take you to the regional Altona train station in about 9 minutes, and Bus #3 that can take you all the way west towards Hamburg's larger shopping malls, or east to the artsy neighborhood of Schanzenviertel with all of it's multi-culti restaurants, or continue west towards historic churches, Hamburg's media & publishing center, and downtown Hamburg where you have exclusive shopping by the Alster Lake.

NH Hotel has a pleasant, professional staff that essentially runs its' ship like most large chain hotels, feeling uniform and efficient even if it's not luxury class. Although it's known in Hamburg as a Four Star, NH it's on not on the same level you would expect a 4 star to look in other western cities, because it's simply practical and very minimalist in style. Everything is neat, uniform, and basic in terms of the rooms. It is tastefully decorated, but without any hint of opulence. At least where the amenities are concerned, you have a hairdryer (important if you're in Hamburg when it's chilly!), free Wi-Fi , satellite tv, and hotel services like massage, sauna and steam bath. I had friends who traveled with a small dog, which was allowed, but there is a pet fee( inquire when making your reservation). The hotel also has dry cleaning services on site, and is wheelchair accessible.

Their restaurant NAVARRA is also very good and the decor is in clean, metropolitan-minimalist style neutrals. The menu takes it's influences from Spain and focuses on Mediterranean specialities- and NAVARRO also has a bar lounge with a courtyard where it's nice to invite friends for cocktails and tapas. They have a good selection of wines as well, especially if you are a fan of wines from Spain (like from the Rioja region).

Unique Quality: Although by US standards the hotel is very basic in architecture, and simply but tastefully decorated, the advantage to staying is the location. Though it's located on a main road with a lot of rush hour traffic, it also has quieter parts of the day being on the border of three residential neighborhoods. As such, NH Altona is in a close proximity to a wide variety of activities that can work well for different age ranges and different types of trips. It works well for families, because you have the quaint, family friendly neighborhood of Ottensen a few minutes by bus with tons of cafes, shopping and ice cream parlours. It's works for mature travelers for that same reason, but just around the corner you can also ELIXIA Spa, other independent spa services (like hot stone massage), find a bistro or two, plus Scotty's Bar, which is a quiet gathering place that also opens up for outside service, and you can people watch the local neighbors from the surrounding apartment buildings. NH Altona is also located next to a series of refurbished warehouse facilities that house everything from wine shops, to a printing service, artist spaces, and local design showrooms. For the single traveler or art & Hipster types, you can hop bus #3 going east and be in the extra-boho sectors of Schanze & St. Pauli in less than 10 minutes. This is a great hotel for people that really want to get out and see things with an active city vacation, rather than those that prefer to enjoy a vacation centered heavily around the hotel, and languishing in opulence with lots of in-house amenities.

Directions: From Hamburg Haubtbahnhof, take train S11, S21, or S31 to Holstenstrasse. Then take Bus# 3 (direction Schenefelder Platz) to BORNKAMPSWEG . Or, from Hamburg Hbhf take train S1 to Altona Station, then Bus #2 (direction Schenefeld Mitte) to BORNKAMPSWEG.
