The food is delicious, the tea is loose leaf with 10 choices and you can order as many teas as you want. I almost don't drink alcohol so I cannot judge the Champagne. The view of the Elb is amazing, you can see Airbus and the cargo ships sailing out in the sunset. Last but not least the staff (both... More

The hotel is located right next to the river, about 5 kms. from Hamburg center. The terrace has a beautiful view over the river, where you can see the large container ships sail by. The terrace is covered with trees, making it a very beautiful place to enjoy your pre-dinner drink. Staff was extremely helpful and polite. The hotel has... More

My wife & I planned our fine dinning experience at this hotel after hearing a lot from many friends about it. I must say, it is absolute pleasure to see sheer hoteliers with great service standards in this hotel. Well spoken, warm and well groomed hoteliers which can be otherwise a challenge in Europe unless a top end international chain.... More

Practical situation as very close to the ferry 10mn and not so far from City Center 40mn. Classical, high-level hotel (carpets, old but classy furniture, large bedrooms with dressing space..). Great entrance hall, shuttle service to the ferry, nice and helpful staff. However, I see exaggerated ratings and I think there is a risk that this hotel could lose its... More

We have just checked out The Louis C Jacob hotel in Hamburg and I'm already looking forward to my next trip to Hamburg to book this hotel again. To start with, the location is amazingly beautiful. If you are a runner you will love the beautiful waterfront track that goes all the way to the Harbour. Since the moment we... More

Only 7km from Hamburg center along the river Elbe, lies this cosy and top tuned hotel with the most relaxing terrase overlooking the river and all of its passing boats. Here one could sit for days and sip one of the many excellent wines watching the world go by. Rooms are excellent and so very well equipped with soft, thick... More

Situated on the Elbe Chausse just 7 km outside of Hamburgs city center, this hotel offers excellent accomodations and outstanding service!!!! We stayed this time on the "land" side in a wonderful junior suite with plenty of room and nice decor. This hotel is completely understated, but offers all you will ever need inclusive of outstanding service provided from ALL... More

We stayed here for one night. This is one of many Leading Hotels of the World I have stayed at.The hotel is a true 5-star hotel with a great restaurant that is worth it for the trip. But the rooms are quite boring. The deluxe room we had was newly built and that is usually a good thing. Here it... More
