"A great base for the Christmas market experience."
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Sofitel Hamburg. It was just a short walk from the underground station. The hotel was tastefully decorated for Christmas. The staff were helpful and spoke good English. The room was spacious and bed comfortable. The only fault I could find was that the toiletries were a bit sparse, bearing in mind we arrived with carry on luggage only with minimal toiletres allowed. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and spa area which had good facilities and was relaxing, especially after a day walking around the various Christmas markets on offer. The walk to the biggest Christmas market was just about 10 minutes away. We didn't have breakfast or try any meals as we eat out. However if you go this week ( 14th Dec.), two of their restuarants are being refurbished so be aware.
Location,staff and room excellent. Small faults,romm heating did not have manual overide and the room became uncomfortable during the night. Breakfast too expensive although there were plenty of local alternatives.
The hotel is just besides the central station and one of the main pedestrian streets. There are very nice cafés in the area. At first, I found the room too blend, but over time, I stayed there 4 nights, I found it to be very practical and very much enjoyed it. Everything is well-thought. The only thing I wonder is the hotel includes in its price public transportation in Hambourg. However, I found after a few days that it was very easy to walk around to the main attractions, plus, Hamburg has to be visited by walking around as it is truly a beautiful city, a gem. Overall, very much enjoyed this hotel.
"Great location& very appealing quirky themed hotel"
We stayed with friends at this great themed hotel. Everything was great apart from the bed which was a little too hard for us all.
Quiet, handy location with train access to central Hamburg.
Would we stay here again.......every time we will come to Hamburg!
Food was great, beer was cold and so close to the cruise terminal...fantastic.
