0  comments

Hamburg is an amazingly unique city in Northern Germany. Having a place to stay with a kitchen is a great way to way to save money on meals. These are fast becoming the Airbnb alternative in Europe due to restrictions and hotels realizing what people want. Here is a list of Hamburg apartment hotels you will love!

What You Will Find in This Post

You can go to any hotel booking site and see what each Hamburg Aparthotel has to offer. You don't need me to repeat that.
I've hand-picked the 10 best Hamburg Apartment Hotels of course based on how nice they are and that they are perfectly located in Hamburg.

More importantly, I'll tell you what's around them, and how easily you can get to the things you want to do.

What good is your apartment hotel with a kitchen if you don't have a grocery store nearby? Sometimes we want to experience the local vibe around where we are staying. Are there restaurants, cafés and bars around for you to relax after a day of checking out the sites?

Some people just want to say thanks by buying me a coffee. I do love coffee. Like a lot. I have seven different ways to make coffee at home....okay maybe it's an obsession.

Travelling around Europe?

Just visiting Germany?

Whether you are a business traveller, solo traveller, or travelling with a family, having more living space can make an extended stay in a city much more comfortable. Constantly eating in restaurants can get tiring and expensive. So what options do you have? Welcome to aparthotels. There are so many

Save Money

Aparthotels give travellers (like myself) a kitchen available in their accommodation. To save some money when I travel, I like to make two meals a day in my vacation home.

Buying groceries in a local neighbourhood is also a great way to experience Europe's different foods and cultures.

A meal in an inexpensive restaurant in Hamburg is around €13 and €30 for a mid-range restaurant.

If you budget for three meals a day for two people at an average of €20 per person, that's an extra €120 a day on top of the cost of a normal hotel.

Cook a couple of meals, and now you are saving a lot of money on your trip. Why pay the same rate for just a normal hotel?

An Airbnb Alternative

Apartment hotels or Aparthotels are the hotel industry's response to the Airbnb / VRBO vacation homes. They offer at minimum a kitchenette or full kitchen giving travellers what they have been asking for, somewhere to cook. 

The other issue is, that cities around Europe are starting to restrict Airbnbs or ban them altogether because it takes living space away from residents. The prices on Airbnb and VRBOs are rising, often from high "cleaning fees" and other "owners fees". Places that look like $100 per night turn into $200 a night quickly.

Security

The advantage of an Apartment Hotel is the 24-hour access and security. When I booked Airbnbs, I had to make arrangements for my arrival time. Flight and train times can make this difficult. I've had to sit in a cafe for hours waiting to meet the owner for a key.

Apartment hotels have standards that they adhere to. Many Apartment hotels have 24-hour security and staff, giving you peace of mind for you and your things during your stay.

Hamburg Districts

Hamburg is made up of seven districts. Hamburg Mitte (centre) is where the majority of the places to visit in Hamburg are. Altona is another popular place and is home to world famous Reeperbahn and Fischmarkt.

Hamburg Mitte

Hamburg Mitte is the most well-known area in Hamburg. It is home to famous sites like:

  • Speicherstadt
  • Rathausmarkt
  • Chilehaus
  • Alter Elbtunnel
  • Reeperbahn
  • Miniatur Wunderland
  • St. Michel's Church
  • Planten un Blomen
  • Elbphilharmonie 

Reeperbahn

Reeperbahn has an interesting history and a bit of misconception for some. Reeperbahn is a street that is lined with nightclubs, bars and restaurants.

Reeperbahn is where the Beatles got their start in the early 1960s before the rest of the world knew of them. Reeperbahn has lots of music venues that come alive at night. You'll even find the Operettenhaus musical theatre here.

Reeperbahn is also home to the largest red-light district in Europe outside of Amsterdam. Here you will find strip clubs, sex shops and brothels. This is mostly on the south side around Hans-Albers-Platz, Davidstraße and Herbertstraße. It is blocked off with large screens and signs saying it is prohibited for women and juveniles.

If it's your first time here, the best way to experience it is with a tour.

Hamburg Altona

Hamburg Altona sits on the West side of Mitte. It runs along the Elbe River and borders Mitte, making it a very convenient place to stay. You can use public transit and get to many of the sites around Hamburg in 15-minutes.

Here you will find sites like:

  • Altona Fischmarkt
  • U-bootmuseum
  • Treppenviertel (Blankenese)
  • Reeperbahn
  • Jenischpark
