Great new 5* hotel with a little bit to learn

Great new hotel nicely located along the Alster lake in walking distance to the city center and great restaurants. The service was good but it would have been great to be advised about the parking in and around hotel when the very friendly staff unloaded and parked the car on arrival, but then later charged 28 Euro/day for it when we could have parked for free during the weekend right in front of the hotel. The room was nice, but the cleanliness did not live up to expectations.
