If you are staying here you are close to the reeperbahn :) even though you are close you will get your sleep and you are close to the alster as well. Nice staff and the bar on the 20th floor is the once with the best view. nice ppl very good drinks.

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years. Always a very pleasant stay. Clean modern rooms, great service throughout and very affordable. And for sure the most action for a HOTEL BAR... located on the top floor - expansive 20 ' glass windows oversee the bright city ,lights at night and the expansive Hamburg port..stunning backdrop...

A very nice hotel. Clean rooms with enough space. Bathroom also very modern and clean. 2 good restaurants and overall good facilities. A nice hotel to stay in. The bar at the top floor is a brilliant place to relax after a long day. Personnel very friendly.

Modern hotel with views of the Elbe from every room. Watch the cruise ships. A short walk to the busy waterfront with shops and restaurants. In addition to sightseeing tours, by bus, bike or mini-car. A short walk in the other direction and you are downtown among the many high-end shops. Vibrant night club on top floor, with exotic cocktails.... More

Rooms are nice clean and comfortable. I had a corner room having two window walls. Breakfast is excellent and also a good remark for the restaurant.Behind the hotel is... More

Let´s get this one staright ahead. Even the lowest internet rate is (comparing apples with apples) pretty high for Hamburg. But you get something back. Location: Very clsoe to the Reeperbahn, if you are with kids do not take the direct walk, turn left at the exit and the next left again it avoids one of the nastier areas. Very... More

Stopped into this hotel on a recommendation from a local Hamburg resident & friend. It was a very nice place to stay while en route from Copenhagen to Frankfurt - wished I had stayed another day in Hamburg rather than going onto Frankfurt, but that's another story. The hotel is well situated on the waterfront and has killer views of... More

I like this hotel and stay here quite often when on business trips in Hamburg. I often get the "corner" room, which makes two full walls purely out of window from bottom to the top. Love this. Rooms are very cozy, comfortable and quite. Fitness room is good, breakfast very good, too, with freshly pressed orange juice. Only thing I... More

Really nice hotel in general. Great views, beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast, very modern and still a warm feeling. I wasn't so happy about the service. The hotel knows that it is a good one and you can feel it. After showing the credit card in the right color I received a smile. Of course people from hamburg are known to... More

How convenient must it be if you are the only hotel who offers a truely astonishing view over the Hamburg Harbour. People will find you and pay the steep price to look at the ships pass by. I am one of those people, but if wasn’t for my 3 year old boy, I probably would have skipped this place. One... More
