Recently refurbished to a bright contemporary standard, this hotel is in a handy position, a short walk from the central train station. Part of the respectable Novum chain, the Accord Novum Hotel is a friendly and functional establishment with quick links to anywhere in the city. The Alster is about a ten-minute walk away, the train station less than five and within a few blocks are plenty of inexpensive cafes, bars and restaurants. For something more high-brow, the exclusive boutiques and galleries of Jungfernstieg are a quick train trip away - a 25-minute walk for those blessed with fine Hamburg weather and comfortable shoes. A varied continental buffet breakfast provides the energy for easy walks around the Binnenalster.
