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

I travel a lot for business and I have to say that Louis Jacob is one of the best hotel I ever stay in. The staff is highly professional, efficient & friendly, the rooms are very good and the food served in the restaurent just cross the road is absolutely fantastic!

I travel over 50% of the time on business, and I've stayed in several of the "Leading Hotels of the World" – they have all been incredible. However, Louis C. Jacob FAR exceeds any expectations you might have.The bar and lounge areas of the main hotel are lovely - open fires, or in the summer tables and chairs outside on... More

Stayed for 2 nights end of May. Nice, comfy room. Very friendly and expedient staff. Great breakfast with views of Elbe river. Very enjoyable evening meal at the “Weinwirtschaft”. Very easy access to Elbe river foot path with wonderful walking opportunities.

West of center you find this small luxury hotel (well-known for it's restaurant). Service is to perfection, nice rooms, nice surroundings in a quiet area and the magnificent view over the river Elbe. Bathrooms spacious and of best quality. Our bed was soft - a bit too soft - but apart from that perfect room. Nearly a walk-in closet, too.... More
