Very good

great location and nice facilities

hotel is understaffed, check in and out took too much time

A perfect haven of comfort and gigantic-bath-tub-ness in the heart of the beautiful St. Pauli.

Firstly, THE BATH. east Hotel's "Splash" rooms have the most amazing bathtub EVER. The room is worth every cent based on the bathtub alone - so if you are of an aquatic bent, this is definitely the option for you. All other facilities, including a lovely large bed, are on point as well. Breakfast-wise, the hotel's offerings were a little on the pricey side for my personal tastes - but that is "each to their own." There are many wonderful cafes and bakeries nearby that you can visit if you are of a similar mindset. The location was perfect for me. A five minute walk from the Reeperbahn, and more importantly, as an avid St. Pauli fan, a five minute walk from the Millerntor. A question here on asks me if the area around the property is safe? Yes. It's safe. Like any city, simply don't get yourself mixed up in anything you should not and you will be fine.

Honestly, I can find no fault in east Hotel whatsoever.

A good hotel but it would be amazing if the staff was nicer (mainly the women)

the sauna, the bed, the bathroom

the staff was very stuck up the lights in the room were terribly designed

Very stylish. But looks trumps some of the service.

Very stylish. Nice setting. The room is different. The room is big. Location is quite good.

No coffee in bedroom. Breakfast way too expensive (tip: delicious breakfast around the corner, at MAY). Only one big towel for two. Disco plays music at night

Short but sweet overnight

VERY nice Hotel, with beautiful Art Deco touches! Everything in the room was high-tech and neat, Walk-in Shower was a beautiful and very nice touch.

Honestly the only negative aspect was that the reception did not have an adapter.

4 Stars from me

It was a great venue and the placement was impeccable. The overall design of the hotel was great and luxerious. There had been put a lot of planning into the design, that was primarily organic in nature.

However, I have some minor complaints. The bathtubs faucet I had in my room was kinda broken and calcified. So it spewed hot water everywhere. Also they had a lot of great items at the breakfast table, but the fruit was stale and bruised. Especially the watermelon. Like it had been frozen a little in the fridge. Also breakfast wasn't included in the price of the room, which was kinda meh considering the price of 225 € a night.

nice lovely hotel

very clean and tidy nice management

shower is inside the room , in this case water is splashing to the ground which make it slippery


18 August 2022

lovely staff and kitchen make up for outdated rooms

location, food for both dinner and breakfast and staff are excellent

the rooms have an outdated look&feel, it was also pretty noisy at night (keep in mind when traveling with smaller children)

before there was a quick breakfast opportunity, in stead of the full breakfast buffet. this was for us enough to start the day, 35 euro per person for breakfast is quiet expensive.

Second time staying here and would definitely come back anytime we're in hamburg. The Splash room is amazing with immaculate decor and a large bathtub that can fit 2 or 3. A perfect getaway hotel for couples.

If you don’t care to be in the shopping area and want some fun around you then it’s an ideal place. Rooms are spacious,

Rooms are spacious. You’ll just love it.

Bed just beside the door, so it was kind of annoying as I’m a light sleeper. Also, it was funny when I asked for a 2pm checkout and they asked for €30 !! I can understand it in budget hotels, but not in such a hotel.

perfect location, cousy hotel



20 February 2022

I will definitely be back.

Excellent experience. The rooms were clean, the check-in service was friendly and efficient, and the room was extremely comfortable and clean.

The only slight issue was the coverage of the Wi-Fi as the connection seemed quite weak in the restaurant. But otherwise it was a superb stay, and I will definitely be back.

The breakfast was very good

The evening in the Resturant was not like it used to be. It was like at MC Donald but much more expensive It was not about the food, it was ok. But the time between the starter and the main course. The argument was that the kitchen was closing at 22;00 . He got to order from our table not beforer 21;00 We had no idee from the closing time from the resturant at 22;00 Not a nice evening!!!

Birthday Weekend Bash Corona Times

Our room, East signature-was large and the decor edgy and hip. Loved the whirlpool! Loved the lotions and potions. The restaurant is beautiful and artsy. At 11 pm all guest were ushered to outside lounge area (Corona protocol). The staff were accommodating and impressive handling a massive shift of guests! This our second stay at the East. We‘ll be back! Just greatest and fun location!!!

It’s a bit on the dark side but I guess it goes with the location ;) Also 34 euros for breakfast is a bit too steep.
