“old warehouses”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Well i can't tell too much,i see just a lot of warehouses, maybe there was more but a lot of them become very new complex buildings, with offices and other stuff. The old buildings can give kind of feeling that you are living in the industrial revolution.

“Very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

I liked the new place of Hamburg and the water area is a very refreshing part of a European city. The restaurants and buildings have a certain freshness to it. I stayed in the hotel there and I will get back there again.

“Cool or dull; up to you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I loved the place. It's not beautiful, it's certainly not the heart of Rome or Paris, or monumental in scale - apart from the excellent Maritime Museum - so if you're easily bored and you expect full tilt glamour and a constant parade of wonders, try somewhere else. What I found was a quiet, stress free jumble of modern architecture and old red brick, residential and commercial, all shot through with canals and docks.
I walked in from Jungfernstieg through the red brick warehouses of Speicherstadt and explored everything on foot. Finished up walking across Baakenhafenbrücke to climb the orange HafenCity viewing platform on a very wet day, looking over the harbour, then returning through the Unilever HQ - tiny market inside on a Saturday - and warming up in one of the eateries near the Kühne & Nagel university.
