Extremely warm welcome and professional staff who went out their way to be accommodating. I had a medical issue during our stay and they immediately had a car and driver take me to a top-rate hospital. The driver waited and then drove me back to the hotel when everything was in order. The rooms were wonderful with sophisticated charm, extremely... More

I was the host of an event here at the beginning of December and cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and the staff. Overall, the quality of the hotel is fantastic, with well appointed rooms and very nice bathrooms with underfloor heating (though I had only a shower and not a bath). As a previous reviewer has stated, the... More

Stayed here on business and what a wonderful hotel. With Xmas preparations and the markets in full swing in the city, the hotel 'does' Xmas very well indeed with beautiful decorations including a huge tree and roaring open fires. Just what you need after a long day and in freezing temperatures. The hotel is split into two with an entire... More

The Louis C Jacob is located on the Elbchaussee, one of the main streets lining the Elbe where big properties dominate the shoreline. This upmarket area is conveniently located and the city centre and ferry stations are within easy reach. The hotel rooms are comfortable and quiet with excellent service, staff will try and help out (prepared a breakfast basket... More

Louis Jacob is one of my absolute favorites - not only in Hamburg. Hard to decide what is best about it: the terrace overlooking the Elbe under the chestnut trees, the cosy bar with open fireplace, the homely library or the impeccable rooms, the highly competent and friendly staff.....for me there is nothing left to be desired. Though maybe it... More

Small boutique hotel only 10 km from the city center of Hamburg. Not inexpensive but you really get value for money: We had a Large comfortable and perfectly maintained room overlooking the Elbe river ( and the Airbus Factory). Full attention to details: bathrobes, slippers, a large rain-shower and: when shoe polishing was done overnight, our shoes came back together... More

This wonderful old hotel in Hamburg is the epitome of what 6 star service should be about. The rooms are beautifully appointed with antiques, the buffet breakfast is delicious, the service from 100% of the staff we encountered was the very best. From an American point of view, the draw backs I found were 1) no conditioner among the amenities... More
