Gastwerk Hotel is one of six Design Hotels-members in the German city of Hamburg. Gastwerk has 141 rooms total and room rates as low as 120 Euros pr. night, mainly due to it’s location 5 kilometres from the centre of Hamburg. Gastwerk is a converted 19-th century gasworks and the design is really unique as I have not seen similar in other hotels. While I was waiting for my room to be ready upon check in, I had a walk around the hotel and the lobby and public areas are very impressive. The check in process went very easy and I received the room key right away. I stayed in a standard room which had a nice design feature as the flatscreen Tv was freestanding. The bed was very comfortable, internet fast and complimentary. Gastwerk receive a high number of business travelers and I was happy to find a working desk with good comfort. The only thing I didn’t like about the room was the bathroom. Some of the rooms have renovated bathroom, but mine was quite old. Basic looking sink and with the shower inside the bathtub. The shower had bad water pressure which I always find quite annoying.
My opinion: Good+ experience.
