We chose this hotel to celebrate my partner's fiftieth birthday and we were not disappointed. The absolute highlight was the excellent staff. Reception, bar, housekeeping, breakfast restaurant, we were greeted by genuinely smiling staff anywhere around the hotel. My partner was recognized by so many staff members on his birthday, truly amazing. A wonderfully decorated breakfast table was arranged, and...

A top hotel located within a short walk of the city centre. You can also walk to the harbour, but that takes about 30 minutes. Alternatively there is a stadtbahn station directly next to the hotel and the harbour is 2 stops away and takes 5 minutes. I stayed in a top floor executive room, which was modern and very...

It's the second time i stayed at this hotel for business purposes. Very good location and nice, clean rooms. I returned to this Sofitel because I was impressed the first time.

This hotel is located in the heart of Hamburg, metro a few steps away...but it cannot really meet the typical Sofitel standards (well, the beds do!), and does not deserve 5 stars, as - breakfast is a disappointment (imagine: 2 types of cheese - for a French company!) - hamam was out of service, but no hints were given (spa...

A very nice Sofitel property. Very centrally located. Nice, modern rooms with excellent beds. Breakfast was among the best I've had at any Sofitel - and that says a lot. The Spa and pool area is a pleasure to enjoy. Very impressive. My only issue was that the service at the front desk did not live up to my expectations...

Wonderful rooms, incredible decor and super service in a great location! It is in the canal and historic centre of Hamburg and a short walk to the waterfront. You walk out the door and you are in the middle of the city. Staff helped arrange tours and went out of their way to be helpful. Only down side was we...

We have stayed in this Sofitel many times as it's our favorite hotel when we visit Hamburg. Even though we had -again- a great stay, we've noticed that the last few years, the service is not as good as it was. Might be us, after comparing price/quality - meanwhile the price of the room, drinks and food has increased considerably....

Stayed here for two nights for New Years Eve and we really enjoyed our stay. Check-in experience went smoothly, no long queues and very friendly staff. The rooms are clean, bed with very comfortable matresses. I did not really enjoyed the decor (furniture), as it made the room look quite crowded. (Superior room with canal view) The bathroom was really...

1. We arrived in our room to find the fire alarm wrapped up in a plastic bag. We rang the reception to ask if the alarm was working and they didn't know. They said they would send a maintenance person to have a look. Several phone calls and 1.5 hours later a guy came and just pulled off the bag....

I was on a business trip and brought my wife. While I was attending a meeting she enjoyed the beautiful spa. As the meeting took longer than scheduled, i called the reception and asked for a late check-out. No problem at all, the staff took care of it and informed my wife about the delay.
