Hood House Hamburg - Rooms

What is the difference between a short and a long stay?

Short stay:
1-9 nights
Room cleaned once a week
Flexible cancellation after arrival

Long stay:
10 nights or more
Rooms cleaned once per wek
Further cleaning possible upon request – €25 per clean
Less flexible cancellation after arrival due to the length of the stay

Do all rooms have a kitchen?

All Hoods have a small kitchen corner with at least a microwave. From the Comfyhood category upwards, all rooms also feature a 2-zone induction hob and sink in the kitchen area. If you require
a dishwasher, we recommend a Classyhood. Dishwashers are also only available in the Comfyhood+ in the case of a non-binding request – thank you for your understanding!

How often are bedding and towels changed?

All our Hoods are provided with bedding, towels and all other necessary textiles needed for day to day sleeping, living and cooking. We want to do our part to protect the environment and have therefore adjusted our cleaning and linen change rhythm.

During your time with us you receive a full cleaning on the eight day of your stay - an apartment cleaning & linen change included.

You like it spick-and-span more often? For € 25 you can book an additional service with a day's notice at the reception.

Thank you for beeing so conscious!

Does the Hood House has an air-conditioning system in place?

We want to do our part to protect the environment and have therefore no air-conditioning system in place.

Is wifi free?

We understand that everyone today requires wifi and without it nothing is possible! Superfast wifi is therefore available throughout the entire hotel including the furthest corners! Free of charge, of course.
We do, however, also recommend that you put down your smartphone now and again to take in and enjoy the neighbourhood and Hamburg. We have put together a few ideas for things to do in our events calendar: www.hood-house.de/Veranstalungskalender

Can I bring my dog with me?

Yes, of course, although only if he is well-behaved! We have 5 special dog rooms on the ground floor for guests with animal companions. These are very practical as they also offer direct access without having to go through the lobby or lift. Please keep dogs on leads in the public areas and around the hotel and clean up after them as there is otherwise a fine of €20 for this in Hamburg.

Also, dog owners are responsible for any damage caused in the hotel or disturbance of the peace although we are sure that this does not apply to you and your four-legged friends! The categories for the doggy are limited to the Comfyhood+. The charge for dogs is €20 per day (for short stays) and 10€ per day for long stays. Please reserve rooms for yourself and your dog direct by telephone: 040 40 11 43 4812 or mail: resevation@hood-house.de

Where can babies sleep?

You don’t want to leave your children with Grandma for the weekend and would like them to travel with you? No problem! Cots are available free of charge. Please note that there is only room for cots in the Comfyhood category upwards. If your child is too big for a cot, children up to and including the age of 2 years can stay free of charge if they sleep in the parents’ bed. Are your kids older and need their own bed? Our Spacehood offers a super comfy 1.80 m sofa bed with room for 2 kids. Charge for kids 3 - 11 years : €20/night; for older kids we charge €40/night.

Please contact us direct to book: 0049 – (0)40 40 11 43 4812 or resevation@hood-house.de

Are additional beds available?

Are there three of you in your group and one of you doesn’t want to be on their own in a room? Then you can also book a room for three – for example the Spacehood provides a super comfy 1.80 m sofa bed which offers room for up to 2 further people. Charge for adults: €40 / night extra.

Is smoking permitted?

No! Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the hotel. If you unable to keep to this small but very important rule we will, unfortunately, have to charge you a €150 cleaning charge.

Smoker’s tip: book the Primehood and smoking is permitted on your own, private rooftop terrace.

Where can I store my valuables when I stay at your hotel?

There is a safe in all rooms. If you have an item which doesn’t fit in the safe, please contact our helpful reception team. We also have large lockers with room for almost anything.

Hood House Hamburg - Extras in the hotel

Where can I get something to eat?

If you would like really good, healthy cuisine, owner Ravneet Kaur Muhar will impress you with her authentic Indian street food in our in-house “Svaadish” restaurant with a modern urban atmosphere. Ravneet wanted to bring her childhood memories of the streetfood of India’s bustling side streets to life and serves typical Indian dishes. SVAAdish is Hindi and means “delicious” and this is what everything is about in this restaurant: mouth-watering Indian specialities which unite tradition and innovations. The menu features Indian classics such as curry and biryani as well as many further street food highlights from India’s various regions. In the lounge area, guests can peruse the cocktail card and sample many Indian inspired creations! Guten Appetit!
