“Close to Reperbahn....”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

A unique fairly new lifestyle hotel - very nice bar on 20th floor - views over the harbour and Elbe -- close to Reperbahn!

The hotel feels brand new and features conte party furnishing. My room, 1902, had glass on 2 sides and overlooked river Elbe. On the 20th floor a popular bar offers the same, but I preferred enjoying it from my bed.

Quality hotel with quite high standards. Awful ironing equipment for loan. Tiny beers in restaurant and beer (this is Germany, right?). No wi-fi.

Nice modern hotel, tastefully decorated. Very good location, easy to move around Hamburg, even by foot (if you're a good walker). Elbe-facing rooms offer a fantastic view through windows reaching to the floor (in November it was very foggy :-( ).
Instead of the breakfast buffet I went to one of the bakeries around the corner. Costs were one fifth compared to the hotel buffet and I got a feel of real Hamburg people, working class and lots of unviersity students.
Clean, well desgined and spacious rooms.

This hotel is in a great location and has some commendable attributes - great decor, attentive staff (particularly those on reception). A couple of quibbles however, no wi-fi or tea coffee making facilities in the room...and intermittent wi-fi in the lobby. One major quibble - the miserable bar staff in the bar on the 20 floor!!! Granted it was a busy Friday night when we visited but these chaps had the customer service skills of Orks with personalities to match. Their adopted mode of communication appeared to be the grunt/growl accompanied by a death stare. Not a pleasant experience - avoid if you don't enjoy buying grudgingly served over priced drinks. All in all, hotel fine, Hamburg great!

Just stayed at thie place 4 the 2nd time.....still the same....NO WIFI & when u pay 4 it.....it keeps going down because they dont have latest technology. Small rooms, no irons, no tea,coffee,etc....no sofa,chairs,etc.....Bathroom showerhead does not move & is angeled towards the wall.


SERIOUS SECURITY CONCERNS - any1 can walk n2 this hotel, get on the elevator & go 2 any floor....no key or other security card needed..........taking into account that they promote & market the 20th floor rooftop bar.....this place is always crowded & you have people able to get off at any floor???........This hotel is asking for TROUBLE.........

NO Late Nite Food menu or food items......dispite their is a gourmet restuarant on the property.......Go figure?????

Small Business centre which half of the items dont work.....Charge to receive & send faxes

VERY SNOBBY STAFF from the check in to rooftop bar.......


I completely agree with other reviews......This hotel management team needs 2 decide if they just want a rooftop bar or actually RUN a hotel.........

I certainly wont be re-booking......They had their 2nd chance....U wont get a 3rd on my dime........
