We recommend reserving your lodging as soon as possible since hotels in the city will be more expensive and in demand than compared to other weekends. 

You will find lodging in all price categories at our partner 

As the CCH Congress Centre Hamburg is optimally connected to all transportation, you could also stay in the suburbs.
