This branch of the Motel One chain is ideal for those looking for a trendy, design-minded, central yet inexpensive base. The bed linens are sumptuous, towels are lush, and the bed is crowned with real leather and dark wood. The bathrooms have rainfall showerheads, and the shampoo and conditioner are made from organic ingredients. The rooms are small, however, and lack basics like telephones, chairs, closets (there is a bar for hanging clothes), and information about the hotel or the city in the guest rooms (you can't call anyone to ask a question, either). There are flat-screen TVs, though. The coffee machines and juice dispenser used at breakfast are hidden behind panels in the lobby, which is a breakfast room in the morning and a bar at night. Despite this efficiency, breakfast can be chaotic. It's close to the convention center, the Reeperbahn, St. Michaelis Kirche, and Planten un Blomen.
