The hotel is conveniently located a 5 minutes walk from Sternschanze station, two stops from main train station. It is an old water tower, refurbished and has a very cool design. Great light designs and a hip bar (Cave Bar) add to the flair. We were greeted kindly and given a room already at 10am, long before check in time. The room was on the 12th floor and had a great view of Hamburg, you could even see the harbour area far away! The room was generally fine. I personally did not like that it had a glass window separating bathroom and bedroom and you could even see into the bathroom through a crack when you shut the lids. Also, a coffee machine was missing in the room as were cuetips, bathrobes and slippers though I am sure they would have been provided if asked. The personal safe was easy to operate, the beds cozy, the heating system working. Sprinkler system and smoke detector in the room, flatscreen TV and nice furniture. The restaurant offers delicious food, try it! In the lobby, they play sound recordings from ship typhoons and running water, which was nice on day 1 but definitely disturbing on day 4. There was no concierge, but the staff had an answer to all our questions. Also, other features I would have expected for the kind of money we paid and the 4,5 star rating were missing: First of all: No swimming pool! I knew that when I booked the hotel but that is not acceptable for a first class hotel in my opinion. Also no doorman, no bell boys, no piano (!) or live music, no evening turn down service from housekeeping (which by the way speaks poor German, staff from Poland and Philipines), however there was a separate mini bar replacement service and a floor supervisor who did a room inspection after HK left. I stayed in other top hotels in Hamburg like Atlantic, Marriott, InterContinental, SAS Rad and thought, this was standard. However, if you get a good rate and want a hotel close to the center with nice quaility rooms and reliable service there is nothing wrong with the Mövenpick (except if you plan to swim or enjoy the luxury features mentioned). We enjoyed the stay and might be back another day!
