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

We had the wonderful experience of staying at the Louis C Jacob after a cruise on the QM2 in May of 2011. The staff were very helpful and very friendly, especially when I tried my tourbook German! The breakfast spread is something to behold, with just about anything you can imagine on offer. The buffet was very artfully done. For... More

All we could say at the end of our stay here was "wow". From the very first moment, we were well taken care of. We had a junior suite and it felt like a home away from home. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, offering sightseeing tips, morning housekeeping and evening room "turndown" service (folding clothes and getting room... More

Its a great full service 5 star hotel in a fashionble area. Service and staff were excellent. Breakfast also very good. 50% of the rooms are located across the quite heavily trafficed Elbchausse which is a small drawback.

Louis C. jacobs is a high standard botique style hotel cloned with an international modern hotel. Wether it comes to the restaurants, wine or facilities you will enjoy it.

I have just stayed here for two nights and it is a very nice hotel. I had a "deluxe" bedroom, with a large separate sitting room, with a writing desk, sofa and table and of course own bathroom. All toiletries (with the exception of anything I could identify as shampoo) were also supplied, with ample towels and bathrobes. My room... More

Beautiful hotel with wonderful views of Elbe river, amazing breakfast spread, the most friendly service! Understated elegance. A bit quirky: many rooms are across the street so it's a bit of a hassle crossing the road (in the rain, if you've forgotten an umbrella) and you need the key to enter the building. (Or you take the underground tunnel.) Love... More
