Hamburg: Hotel Figaro

January 13, 2010

We were in Hamburg for 3 nights and booked ourselves into the Hotel Figaro. For three nights in a double room (shared toilet and shower room) we paid €105.


Loved:

  • The hotel was quiet.
  • Our room, the communal shower room and the shared bathroom were clean and well-stocked with liquid soap, shower gel, etc.
  • Although we had to share the bathroom and the shower room (one each per floor), there were only two other rooms on our floor with whom we had to share.
  • Conveniently located across the road is a huge supermarket, a gas station (read: late night/early morning snacks) and an U-Bahn station (U3 – Feldstraße).
  • There was free wi-fi (supposedly throughout the building) and down in the lobby, there is also a computer you can use.
  • Our room had its own washbasin, so we could atleast brush our teeth/wash our face in our room.


We didn’t love:

  • No elevator. We didn’t mind as our room was on the first floor. If you have a lot of bags with you though, make sure to ask for a room on a lower floor.
  • The wi-fi was rather hit-and-miss… and more miss than hit for that matter.
  • The hotel and its rooms are quite dated, so if ‘modern’ is what you’re after then this isn’t the place for you.


Verdict:
If all you’re after is a place to sleep, then the Hotel Figaro is fine. As we were only in Hamburg for three nights, our priorities were to find somewhere clean, reasonably located, with free wi-fi, close to public transport (we were leaving Hamburg via train) and on the cheaper side. At €17.50 each per night (or €52.50 each for 3 nights), and with all the aforementioned boxed ticked… who can really complain? Not us.

Location Neuer Kamp 21, 20359 Hamburg

Closest U Bahn The U3 line’s Feldstraße (Heiligengeistfeld) or the U2 line’s Messehallen.

Rates we paid roughly €35 per night in a double room, however, it was a fairly last minute booking. The advertised rates are €45/night (Friday and Saturday nights are €60).

And? If you don’t speak German, have a look on a hostel/hotel booker website, such as booking.com. The staff at the front desk do speak English and they are happy to help if you need a map or directions. Breakfast is available at a surcharge.
