I've stayed here many times on business, in a range of rooms. Always clean and well presented. helpful staff. I have found the staff in the 20up bar a little rude on occasion, hence I prefer the reception bar to relax in. However, I wish they would stop with the Haribo in the rooms, it plays havoc with my diet!!... More

I love the building, I've been many times to the bar in the ground floor and the 20up bar. The design of the place overall is amazing. Now it happened that I stayed overnight first time. The rooms seems a bit pale to me but maybe this is because my expectation was too high. It is for sure a five... More

We started off by having dinner at the hotel restaurant which was very tasty and relatively not expensive considering the venue and location, Oliver the head waiter was very attentive and took very good care of us and after dinner even arranged for someone to transfer our jackets to the downstairs cloakroom so we didn't need to carry them with...

I have stayed at the Empire on two occasions this year for business and both stays were great. The room temperature can be somewhat difficult to control and frustrating for an American. The hotel is very sterile feeling. The 20up bar is amazing; the restaurants are great and offer some of the better food in the area. Overall I will... More

I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights this summer when going to an event. Me and my friend were very excited to stay in the hotel due to the location and promised standard, and by all means, everything is good. But due to the price - it is not good enough. The room was clean, the bed ok and... More

A very good hotel in the middle of Hamburg, amazing breakfast and super polite staff. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The only drawback was the slow internet. This really is a must in a business hotel.

The Hotel is close the waterfront and above St. Pauli Landungs Bruecken. It is a newer hotel without any charm used by Business people, did not see any children the 3 nights I was there. Most of the rooms are on the sides of the building but have some view of the harbor. The furniture in the room is minimal,... More

Stayed here one night for work. Very modern clean rooms, well stocked mini bar but surprisingly no tea/ coffee. The all night bar on the 20th floor has amazing views of the harbor and perhaps is a reason alone to stay here.

very nice hotel which is located right next to the great reeperbahn. the personal is very helpful and the food of the restaurant is delicious. if you want to relax in the evening, just go to the 20up bar and enjoy some cocktails and the amazing view on one if the biggest ports of europe. i'm coming back for sure!

Great hotel, well located. Efficient check in and check out process. Had a some good German wines, which I found on Vine Advisor.com. Wine bar was very well stocked. Great evening with friends.The German Burgunder Red wine was very well balanced and enjoyed it.
