Had two nights here. Room is really nice. Very clean and spacious. My only issue is no tea making facilities in the room. View over the Elbe river is spectacular with small boats up to massive ships passing by all of the time. Bed is comfortable but pillows a bit soft for my taste. Service has been good with English...

We went to Hamburg to attend one of the expo and was booked at The Rilano Hamburg. Was surprised when we reached the hotel as it is nothing like the pictures online. The hotel is great. It is also near the Airbus. The hotel is located quite a distance from the city. However, there is a ferry stop just outside... More

We really enjoyed the room and the views of the river, although I found some staff to be quite rude, the car parking charge is stupidly high considering how far out of the city centre the hotel is place. Room service was delicious on one occasion, a few days later we ordered the same meal and it was not so... More

If you stay in this hotel you must ask for a room in front of the river. The view is unique. Through the huge windows of the room you can see the huge ships arriving to Hamburg port passing in front of you. The only big minus of the hotel is the location far away from Hamburg downtown.

It was a bit of a drive to get to the hotel but I was hoping it was going to be worth it - and was it! Although it is situated outside the city,a nice ferry ride with a few stops takes you directly to the city centre and can be seen as an excursion, especially if time allows for... More

Location is superb if you are visiting Airbus. Otherwise little outskirt, although ferry leaves right next to the hotel. Not too many shops or restaurants around the hotel. Would not go with the family. Reception was not very friendly, but room was very nice. The breakfast was superb. Would recommend for business trip within Airbus.

A Hotel with the right Level of luxury and individualism; the rooms are modern, clean, and the view to the Elbe river is amrvellous! Staff is extremely friednly and helpful. And, of course, unique, to arrive and leave with the Ferry boat (Time table on the wall, and known by the staff by heart).

Clean and nice rooms, correct breakfast buffet. Very well located to visit companies in Finkenwerder or take a plane in Finkenwerder airport. But the location is terrible in an industrial area with NOTHING around, and it is grossly overpriced for Germany. The restaurant and bar are also ridiculously expensive, using the captive market of the closeby companies visitors.

I ended up upgrading to an Elbe view, and I'm glad I did. Great views for my entire stay. It's a bit by itself (except for being so close to Airbus), but it's nice to have the ferry boat access so close. I chose not to pay 19 Euros for breakfast, but I did enjoy having dinner in the lobby... More
