This hotel looks hip, sounds hip, but isn't really. It's a big old hotel, so whilst having some boutique hotel touches like cool amenities in the rooms, or nice art on the walls in certain places the sheer size of the place means it can't be a boutique - around 350 rooms. Hotels in NYC like Soho Grand or The... More

If you get the chance to book rooms located higher in the building you'll get the perfect view of Hamburg Harbor scenery. Breakfast is excellent, rooms splendid. Windows down to the floor = scary. Overall very nice experience & worth the money, Parking is expensive 18 EUR / day

Stayed at this hotel recently on a business trip and was very pleased with everything about it. Room was very large for Europe, had enough outlets, a space to work and good WiFi. Really nice and predictably expensive breakfast buffet, very close to everything (including the red light district unfortunately). Don't miss the bar on the 20th floor for a... More

I visit Hamburg on an annual basis to visit friends who live there. On this trip I stayed at the Empire Riverside hotel which was recommended to me. I chose a luxury double room on the tenth floor having superb views of the river and ever changing scene of river traffic. From a location point of view it is within... More

Good hotel, nice bar (20UP), restaurant shall be tested! I've tried the fitness center with sauna, wonderful after a hard day of work. The room was clean, comfortable and the bathroom quite large. Very good breakfast with a huge choise! The only negative point is the wifi, I stayed for two weeks and every there is an issue with it.... More

Got in late, with no booking but was well looked after and given a fantastic room. Good location too. Floor to ceiling glass windows a nice touch. I recommend this place entirely. You can't really go wrong here. Beds are comfy, you just have to make sure your curtains are closed before you run around naked as it's a bit... More

We checked in here yesterday to attend a wedding and I am still in the room as I write this. At first glance, everything is fiend and nicely arranged, however, everything is terrible when a thick scent of cigarette smoke keeps filtering into your room. We returned from the wedding late last night to a smell in our room which... More

This hotel is simply excellent. Everything is in its favour, such as the location, bar, rooms and views and the best breakfast that I have ever had at a hotel. On one occasion my room faced the neighbouring building, but the hotel is so nice that I didn't really care. Staff are friendly although can seem a little abrupt compared... More
