With the hotel being less than a 5 minute walk to both an overground and underground station, this hotel is in a perfect location to access Hamburg for a visitor.
The hotel itself is has a nice cocktail bar just off the lobby with a respectable range of cocktails and Scotch Whisky.
I never ate dinner at the hotel but the breakfast is definitely up there. Selection is very good, but what makes it stand out is the quality on offer. Options for all here.
There are only two things that let this hotel down. 1, the gym. It's tiny. In fairness Sofitel does look like it has quite a good spa, but I think they've hedged their bets in that direction which made the gym suffer. Only one treadmill (second one out of order), one elliptical trainer, one exercise bike and some weights.
The other complaint is the room. Although very well laid out, clean and tidy, it is a bit too contemporary for a sleeping area. A lot of white and a random picture of two peoples faces on the headboard? A little weird. But in any case, the important aspects were good - comfortable bed, good night sleep.
Would recommend for business trips.
