We chose this hotel for the great location (just a couple of minutes from the Town Hall/ Rathaus and right next to both U-bahn and S-bahn stops) and a good deal via Trip Advisor (cheers, folks). It's a very comfortable, modern, slick hotel with friendly, helpful staff - they went out of their way to help us find shops which... More

I have given some five-stars hotel reviews, but in comparison this one merits six ! It is simply the best hotel we have ever stayed in ! Just about eventhing was great. We could quibble about that the room was not ready in time for our check-in at 15.00, but half an hour later, or about the air-condition in the... More

I stayed 12 nights in this hotel last year and can say with authority that this is one of the better properties in the Sofitel chain in Europe. The service staff have been trained to an exceptional standard and you are always greeted with a smile. The rooms are not the most spacious you will ever have but boast all... More

The Sofitel is a very modern hotel just back from the Alster. The rooms are modern with really comfortable beds, the best being those that look out onto the back canal. What I particularly liked is the canalside terrace which is a superb spot to sit in the sun with a drink. The room lacked an iron and an ironing... More

Good hotel. Some misses to live up to the standards of Sofitel and 5 stars. Refridigator was broke. No trashcan in the bathroom. No rainshower. No coffeemachine in the room. Otherwise okey. But the have to stop with this plastic under the sheets. I wake up all warm. I took it out and then sleept good.
