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

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.
