Stayed here for a major conference at Hamburg Messe and was initially impressed by the functional room (less impressed by the rate more than doubling during the conference), and good breakfast (expensive - Euro 22 but I have paid more for less). When tested, you discover how blasé staff have become. 1) As a business hotel, internet access is important... More

Stayed with a friend as we where going to a concert in Hamburg. Well situated in quiet surroundings near Reeperbahn, a short walk from the harbor. Minimalistic rooms with comfortable beds, twin beds not available though. VERY clean. Staff was very helpful when i lost my credit card, and let me pay by transferring the money online instead.

The location is very, very nice! Stepping in to the lobby already gives the feeling of being in the right place. Perfect staff, perfect ambiance! Take the elevator to the top floor bar and just enjoy (a real MUST) some drinks in a great bar with one of Hamburgs best views over the harbour (and not only, if the weather... More

Close my clients it was the best choice around. Not really cheap according to my company standards but worth the money. When you arrive to this hotel you can relax and recharge for next day. The room was big with all comforts. Ok the restaurant and on top of all the breakfast has a good and large choice too. Recommended.

I regularly frequent Hamburg for business trips and stayed in this hotel before. It has nice sized rooms with a view overlooking the port. Breakfast has a good choice of food and the staff are nice. Location of the hotel is not so touristic unless you don't mind staying next to the red light district all the time. Taxis are... More

I was really looking forward to our stay after booking through a travel website. The pictures looked great and the descriptions seemed amazing. But once we got there all expectations were instantly let down. The lobby looked dirty and worn. But I thought I know it's winter and there's snow and rain right now. Everyone walking through here would do... More

I stayed in the Empire Riverside from Monday to Friday for the whole of October, November and December 2013 as I was working locally. The rooms are a little bit on the "minimalist" side but I guess that is the general style of the place. Overall, the hotel is clean, modern, chic and well run. Great staff, efficient service and...

Great hotel ... but rooms start at about 120€, plus internet, plus breakfast. Great hotel, great view, but on business i am not in the room a lot, so I mostly stay at the Motel One am Michel, which is as close to Reeperbahn as this one, but 69€ a night, a nice but cheap "designer" chain. It sure hasn't... More
