              Room was well designed with view on the roofs of inner city. Beds very comfortable. Staff very friendly and whole atmosphere good. Hotel is very central and from there you can walk to Alster and Harbour.

              The breakfast hall was small and when walking from your table to the buffet, you had to walk very carefully not to bump into someone.

              I ordered a room with Alster view. They don’t have rooms with Alster view, only with Alsterfleet view, which is a small canal. Unfortunately these rooms are just opposite building activities. Sometimes they already start before 07:00 and they create a lot of noise and will probably last for many many months. From a 5 star hotel you may expect a little compensation or the same price as offered for a standard room located on the other site without noise.

              Fantastic choice for breakfast and the room was very comfortable. Your are within site of the Rathaus and it's square.

              The cost of parking, broadband and breakfast, these 'hidden costs' add up.

              Swimming pool, Excellent location. Overall friendly helpful staff.

              Clear sheet of glass between bedroom and bathroom. I was very thankful I was staying with my boyfriend and not just a friend! All staff were so friendly and helpful except for one night receptionist. When I enquired about getting food on return to hotel after night out he was very dismissive and rude. Every other staff member were just so helpful so overall we had a lovely experience at Sofitel.

            • Family with children

              Travelling with 4 children (age 1 year to 14 years), it was first of all very important to get a large room and have facilities that everyone could use. We stayed in a very large suite (we actually booked 2 double rooms with interconnecting doors, but we got a suite in stead) that was perfect for our large family. All of us felt very welcome and all of the staff was smiling, service minded and very kind to us and very helpful in answering questions about Hamburg and where to go. We enjoyed the luxury surroundings and the unpretentious atmosphere. We will choose Sofitel again when visiting Hamburg.

              I thin 26 EUR per person for breakfast is too expensive. Would be nice if we could choose other breakfast than buffet - smaller menu.

              Hotel is in the very centre of the City - in the walking distance to many offices

              I was not asked at check-in if I prefer smoking or non smoking room. Nowadays one can assume that it should be non-smoking one. After I entered I felt like guest before me smoked a box of cigars there. So I went back to the reception, nicely described situation and asked for another room. Receptionist had a face of very unhappy person if I made an unwanted problem. The other room was ok, except the bose radio didnt worked (the only way to turn it on actually was to use remote control - but the batteries were probably dead:) but the worst was bed - very soft and used ( I felt I was half sitting - the middle part of mattrace was much lower. To sum up: I will never stay there again.

              It was only a one night stay, but the hotel is beautiful and I would definitely stay there again an recommend it to my associates.
