In January I will send a weekend in Hamburg Germany. After browsing the hotel booking sites, we ended up choosing Stella Maris Hotel. This as it was inexpensive and highly ranked both in tripadvisor and among guests at booking.com.

Germany is a inexpensive country for Norwegians to stay in. You can get high standard accommodation at low prices, and the food is good and inexpensive. When I and my friend and Enjoy Fopod & Travel co-writer discovered that we could get round trip air tickets with Norwegian Air Shuttle from Oslo for under NOK 800 i.e. under €100.

Hamburg is one of the largest cities in Germany and is only one hour flight away from Oslo. It has much to offer, with a hectic nightlife, good restaurants, historic sights and cultural events.

We found the Stella Maris Hotel. Ranked as number 28 of 322 Hamburg hotels in tripadvisor and priced at around 600 NOK (€75) it was one of the best bargains available. Only 6 out of 90 on tripadvisor found this hotel to be bad, whereas 77 found it very good or excellent. 228 guests reviewed it as very good (8,5 points out of 10) on booking.com

Stella Maris Hotel is located directly at Hamburg’s harbour, The infamous Reeperbahn and the lively St Pauli district are just a 10-minute walk away. Underground and S-Bahn trains run directly to Hamburg Central Station from Landungsbrücken Station.

The Stella Maris Hotel offers 49 rooms with private bathrooms and cable TV. It has a maritime interior and free Wi-Fi. There are free internet terminals are available in the lobby, and you may relax a cosy library with fireplace, and a lounge with table football and billiards/pool. Breakfast is not included in the price, but could be ordered at a modest €7, and we ordered breakfast for all three days.

Stella Maris Hotel will be the first hotel to be rated on Enjoy Food & Travel in 2012. If the ranking is correct we may have found a perfect place to stay in Hamburg. To find out, stay tuned for my review in January coming year.
