Very classy hotel, even though it's quite near to the Reeperbahn. The rooms are quiet too, especially higher up. The rooftop bar's view to the Elbe and the city is simply amazing and they have excellent drinks as well. The bartenders know their business. Breakfast is very good,

Lieber Gast, vielen Dank für Ihre Nachricht. Die nächsten öffentlichen Bahnstationen sind entweder die Station Reeperbahn (S-Bahn S1) oder die Station St. Pauli (U-Bahn U3). Beide Stationen sind fußläufig in ca. 5 - 7 Minuten von Hotel aus erreichbar. Unser Restaurant Waterkant bietet Ihnen neben weltweiten Spezialitäten auch hanseatische Highlights im neuen Stil. Hier können Sie durch bodentiefe Panoramafenster den Blick auf die Hafendocks genießen. Unsere aktuelle Speisekarte finden Sie auf unserer Homepage. Alternativ können Sie in der Zeit von 18:00 - 20:00 Uhr auch Sushi in unserer 20up Bar wählen. Hier erwartet Sie ein außergewöhnlicher Blick über den Hafen und die Stadt in der 20. Etage. Fußläufig 10 Minuten entfernt liegt das Portugiesenviertel. Hier sind mehrere Restaurants in verschiedene Richtungen (italienisch, portugiesisch usw.) direkt nebeneinander. Für weitere Fragen und Wünsche stehen wir Ihnen gerne zur Verfügung. Mit freundlichen Grüßen von der Waterkant Teresa Schumann Reservierungsabteilung

"Ask for rooms facing the river instead of the city"
"best view on Hamburg port from upper floors"
"As for a room with a view to the river"
"Anything but 4th floor, rooms are absolutely unspeakable. Dark, no view. Big ventilator shafts in window, like a dystopian movie set."
"Ask for rooms at higher floors for best views to the city or river side."
