The view is phenomenal but WiFi costs 10€ for 24 hours if you want to stream movies or just videos on Instagram and YouTube. TV very old and Small and service does not always fill up the soap. Service okay. View amazing.

We were looking for a place to relax and pamper ourselves...and celebrate my birthday. On the 12th floor, we had a fantastic view of the harbour and enjoyed the sauna and steam bath on the 3rd floor. Dinner at... More

This hotel is situated on the riverside of the harbor in Hamburg and the rooms are all with a lovely harbor view and high windows. The check-in took a little while, staff being very friendly and welcoming. There is candy on the reception desk, so help yourself!!! The rooms are spacious and have a modern & nordic design. Very nice... More

Great hotel, great service, great location. Never disappoints. Lovely riverside views and good choice of restaurants and bars. The interesting St Pauli area right behind the hotel makes the contrast dramatic.

Nice and modern hotel situated in the centre of town and close to everything. Spectacular views from the cocktail bar at the top floor overlooking harbour and town. Worth a visit. Breakfast is amazing and a full on buffet boasting a large selection of Bavarian and continental dishes.

The rooms at the Empire Riverside are average from the perspective of decor. There are no pictures on the walls, just plain white walls. Since this was a business trip, I liked the bench and table that allowed me to work in the room. The bathroom was nice and there was plenty of water pressure and hot water! There were... More
