        The design of the hotel was good, rooms were great and had wonderful views and we had one of the best schnitzels ever in the bar when we arrived late on Friday night (service was excellent as well).

        Excellent location with nice views over the Port of Hamburg and the river! Comfortable beds!

        I dont want to be charged €5 for a 0,75 ltr bottle of water placed in the bathroom!

        Sound insulation between 19th floor and bar on 20th floor could be better

        location, otherwise nothing

        unfriendly, local hobby hoteliers without any international hospitality knowledge but room rate similar to luxury hotels. furniture cheap plastic wood and minimalistic but "want to be" design style. cannot compare with international brands or service quality. disappointed! smoking floor at the 4th floor with view on a giant wall. 179 euro rate excluding breakfast. disaster trip and stay at all

      • Family with children
        8.2

        The panoramic view from the room were just awesome. Our room overlooked the river and there was so much to look at out there. It was very cool.

        We were hoping to grab a quick drink in the bar on the 20th floor when we go to the hotel at 1500 before heading out into the city. Well unfortunately it didn't open until 1800.

      • Couple
        6.6

        The Location is great - it can't be more central. Great view from the bar on the 20th floor.

        Somehow I've expected more. I had a room with no view and there are many hotels in this category with a much better room standard.

      • Group of friends

        the hotel staff is very helpful

        the room service had to wake me up everyday even though i had the dont disturb sign on.

        Beautiful view over the Elbe river from my room at the 12th floor. Excellent facilities for working in the room and a great breakfast buffet in the morning.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Very modern and nice hotel - bith from the outside and in particular from the inside. Good service level. Very attentive staff.

        I like when I am travelling (which I do a lot), that I can make myself a cup of coffee in my hotel room by use of a kettle and instant coffee bags. Unfortunately this is not a feature in the room. That to me is a must! Secondly, me and my wife were missing face wash cloth in the bathroom. ALSO A MSUT. Other than that, we have nothing to complain about and the positives from our stay more than outweighs the negatives.

      • Couple
        10.0

        the hotel is very good located in the middle of the reeperbahn, but no noise inside the building

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Design and location.

        We went on a bus tour which we booked through the hotel but thought it was poor as the guide was supposed to speak in both German and English but spoke about 90% German and 10% English. On passenger complained and the guide explained that was because only 10% of the passengers were English. The company was Stadtrundfahrt. I would suggest that this company is not recommended to English speaking customers as we though the guide was very rude and arrogant. However this didn't spoil Hamburg for us, we thought it and your hotel were fabulous!

      • Couple
        7.4

        I liked very much the view to the harbor. The quality of bed and bedding was good and also the mini bar.

        I think the price for the breakfast is much too high. In the very near areas you can get excellent breakfast at 30%.
