Prizeotel Hamburg City is a budget design hotel a few minutes from Hamburg’s central train and bus stations. Very close to Hafencity, this hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood and has a fantastic shower and a huge bed that will make you sleep like a king.
Designed by the famous Karim Rashid, this is a great design hotel on a budget. Continue reading, and you will understand why!
At the end of 2017, Nick Cave announced a new European tour, and I knew I needed tickets to see it live. I tried to get access to see him in Berlin, but it got sold out fast. I tried my best, but I failed.
So, I decided to get tickets for another ci, ty and, since I had never been to Hamburg before, I tried to order tickets there, and it worked out. Fast forward a few months, and this is how I got to the Prizeotel Hamburg City.
I arrived in Hamburg by bus on a rainy Friday and walked 20 minutes to Prizeotel Hamburg-City. The area felt a little lonely, but everything was fine. I found the hotel without any problem, and the check-in was smooth and straight to the point.
I got my key card and went to my room to leave my bags and explore Hamburg.
How about the room at Prizeotel Hamburg-City?
As I said before, Karim Rashid designed everything at Prizeotel Hamburg-City, and, as a designer, I always feel weird about his use of color and general aesthetics. But everything fits in so well at Prizeotel Hamburg-City that I have nothing to complain about. From the blue carpets to the pink doors, from the green tables to the blue details everywhere, the designer knew what he was doing, and the rooms looked great, as you can see in the pictures here.
The primary focus of the bedroom is on the large bed in the middle of it, with two mattresses saving my night after exploring Hamburg during the three days I was there. Under the bed, you have space to store your bags if they are a little bit big. Some light under the bed will help you navigate the room.
Also, on the small table close to the window, you can find a Bluetooth radio with a speaker that works well with a mobile phone. If you feel the room is too quiet, add some of your favorite songs and relax even more.
Now that I mentioned everything about the bedroom let’s discuss the bathroom. The bathroom at Prizeotel Hamburg-City isn’t huge, but you won’t feel like you are in a crowded space. A piece of stained glass behind the mirror captures the light from the bedroom and gives the place a beautiful glow.
My favorite thing about it was the shower, which was strong and warm enough to make me feel like I was in a Finnish sauna. I just loved it, and maybe, I spent a little bit too much time there.
If you care about heating or air conditioning, I can tell you that everything works well. After walking in the rain for a while, I returned to my room and felt it was too cold. I changed the setting on the heating dial, and everything felt better after a couple of minutes.
Also, the Wi-Fi worked like a charm!
After a long and wet first day exploring Hamburg, I woke up to an excellent breakfast at Prizeotel. The room where it was served had all the aspects I liked about the place, and everything was centered around the vast breakfast buffet.
There you could find all the ham and cheese you can eat, a lot of varieties of bread, fresh fruit, muesli, jam, and one of the coolest coffee machines I have ever seen.
To finish this review, except for the somewhat desolate surroundings, everything about Prizeotel is excellent, and I would go back there without any issues. Their wi-fi was fast and worked great, the bed was fantastic, and the shower was beyond expectation.
The room was big enough for me, and the breakfast was exactly what I needed in the morning. If you need to know more about Prizeotel, just visit their website and book your room! You’ll not regret it.
