A very short stay in Hamburg, I got there late on the train and by the time I got there it was dark, so I stayed in a hotel recommended to me by someone as cheap and it turned out to be fairly expensive, but nice (I´m fairly sure it was at least four star), plus I got my own room for once. I Left early in the morning for Berlin.
