Nice hotel, along the river, with very nice view on the Elbe. Breakfast is great, as well as the restaurant. The only concerns could be the remote location: car or taxi are mandatory if you want have a dinner in downtown at night !

Good hotel, but when I needed to walk before 6am with luggage from the hotel to the airport, as the shuttle was booked and could'nt drive 3 instead of 2 times (we are talking about 10 minutes loops), I tried to remember... is it me to have to go the extra mile for the hotel, or wasn't it other way...

The location is good for those who want to have a quiet place during their stay at Hamburg. Getting to the city centre by ferry takes about 30 minutes. These little ships are departing directly in front of the hotel every 30 minutes. Be aware that the last outbound ferry departs from the Landungsbrücken-Terminal at 10:15 pm! The rooms facing...

If you are visiting Hamburg for travel and business, with your family or business partners. The hotel located in the bank of Elbe, a bit far from the center of the city but easy to reach by bus or ship, its very quite to stay in the night and relaxing after your business activity. There are some nice receptionist welcoming...

This hotel has a perfect location when you would like a nice view of the Der Elbe. It is very close to Airbus Training Centre and Airbus Airport Finkenwerder. It is also very close to the city centre as you can take a ferry just outside the hotel to the centre of town in only 10 minutes or so. The...

Despite a nice view over the Elbe (extra charges associated, however), very disappointing room (awful smell in the toilets, daily Wi-Fi token down after 1h and have to switch to a chargeable fee...), reception desk not nice nor helping at all, not acting when the issues were reported.

The Rilano hotel is located outside the city centre, along a river in Hamburg, with a lot of ship traffic. Tugboats, container ships, and cruise liners pass by quietly and give an awesome view of the busy river. The sound of these ships are surprisingly low and didn't bother me at all. The hotel room is average in size, it...
