As part of the Come to Hamburg project, we were invited to Hamburg to explore the city as well.During our 3 days 2 nights visit at Hamburg, we were given the opportunity to spend 2 nights at the Appartello Hotel Apartment..

APPARTELLO – THE SMART LIVING HOTEL
My family and I spent 2 nights at Appartello – The Smart living Apartment Hotel while exploring the city of Hamburg. The appartello – smarttime living Hamburg is a modern apartment hotel with 76 rooms in a convenient location between airport, city north and city center. The serviced apartments are located in the green district of Alsterdorf / Großborstel, very close to Eppendorfer Moors and the Hamburg city park. A bus stop with connection to public transport (HVV) is only a few steps away.
Don’t you worry about using a Public Transport in the city. Pick yourself a Hamburg Card and you can travel across the city whenever you like. And heyy, the public transport is as clear and easy as the London Underground. Don’t worry at all if you are not sure about the directions. People are so courteous and welcoming that we got help on numerous occasions by locals.
The front end Staff at the Appartello Hotel are smiling, friendly and always welcoming, irrespective of the time of the day( 24* 7 ). As we just reached the front desk of the hotel, kids were treated to Fred & Friet along with some Haribo’s. How cute it that gesture.
Ask them directions on how to travel across the city and they are always ready to help with a map and charted out directions.
Even before we began to explore the city, we spent a few hours relaxing in the Hotel. To describe in a line, I would call “Appartello Apartment – A home away from home”. As we arrived at around 12pm, about 3 hours before the usual check in time, the friendly staff checked us in straight to our room, instead of asking us to baggage drop. How nice of them as this was something we never expected. Our room was spacious,stylish, modern with a cozy living room, bedroom and a comfortable kitchenette. We loved our functional kitchen with oven, microwave, kettle, coffeemaker and dishwasher.
The living room was well designed with a double sofa cum bed, a 40″ flat screen television, a super comfortable arm chair. The Double bed was already laid when we entered in and we decided to keep it on for the next two days of our stay. Children loved the channels on the tv as they were not expecting a whole range of sports and cartoon programmes on them.
The main bedroom had the perfect ambience one could expect in a holiday with ample storage, safe locker and another flat screen of 32″. Right through the main bedroom was the shower room cum toilet that was perfectly laid out for families. Children found the step stool absolutely amusing as mummy had to help them in every holiday stay. But this was exceptional.
The little minuscule of detailing in the apartment hotel actually made us fall in love with the space. Its nearly 3 weeks,since we are back from holidays and they are still talking about the Hamburg city and the hotel.
BREAKFAST AT THE HOTEL
Breakfast could be bought on pay as you go basis by simply filling in a form of the food chosen. And this bill gets added along with the room charges, which could be cleared at the time of departure. How convenient was that.
They also had a “Smart Breakfast” concept for 7.90 euros where you can help your self to freshly made sandwiches, croissants, rolls, eggs and tea You could also enjoy fresh fruit jars ,cereals and a fresh coffee for a nominal price.
We did opt for smart breakfast for both the days, buy also bought some fresh fruit jars too… We were hoping there could be some more choices of hot breakfast.
Since we were off to our next holiday immediately after returning from Hamburg, I was keep on sorting out my laundry during our stay. There were 2 washing machines and 2 driers in the laundry This service was absolutely comfortable and made my next trip convenient.
I really didn’t get a chance to use the fitness suite, as our 48 hours trip had us exhausted. But its one facility often guests look forward too if they like to keep up with their schedules.
This hotel apartment is really amazing. If at all you are looking for an apartment hotel to live with kids, then this is the place I would recommend for holidays in Hamburg. The Apartment hotel is just the thing you need with really spacious bedrooms and a perfect place to retire at the end of the day.
