          • Good location in the centre of Hamburg and most central attractions within walking distance, was for us anyway. The room was comfortable and the hotel has a strong design ethic to, the staff were Brilliant and friendly. Bathroom was great and the bed very comfy, breakfast was plentiful and a wide variety of things to choose from, dinner was perfect.

            Horrible place, not worth the price, huge chuncks of meat exhibited in the lobby and inconsistent service.

          • The location is superb and Hamburg is a very nice. The front desk is very fast and friendly, the Deluxe room is worth the slight extra cost, the restaurant fusion has a great dessert that you have to try.

            Staff were new and didn't have info about the city, service was poor particularly in the hotel bar was disorganised an inefficient, the channels available on the tv set were essentially German.

            View from roof balcony not that good, hotel is comfortable except for the beds and the mattresses are rock hard and the typical German pillows are hopeless.

            Too much emphasis on design, inconsistent service and the slippers were to small for my feet.

          • Location near city centre and best meat in town. Minimalistic comfortable design and cool lobby. On a short distance from the shopping district, very nice staff and room was simple clean as well as luxurious.

            The pool area is far to small the spa was fully booked, the hotel claims to be a 5* hotel, this is not realistic anymore and no proper air conditioning. The service in the bar could be improved.

          • The location is perfect, a great place to explore Hamburg from and the lobby is really modern and works well. Services are very good, the room is very spacious and very nicely designed, the bar is brilliant. Breakfast is absolutely fine and the older male waiter should try to be less of a funny guy.

            Ugly views from widows, the Hotel is really showing its age feels tiered and the price is a bit too high. Music in the reception is a tick too loud, ridiculous internet access fees.

          • Great location and very nice hotel. Excellent service from staff and very spacious room. The buffet breakfast equally appetizing and practical choice in Hamburg.

          • The location is good and you are a short walk from everything, the place is cool, modern, the rooms are worth the price.

            Really not a great hotel and also, the beds are not comfortable.

          • Excellent location and great design. Lovely very professional staff and perfect rooms. I particularly liked the wardrobes designed as 50's fridges, bar lively in evening and best breakfast ever.
