Dear Redc965, Thank you very much for taking your time to leave us your review regarding your stay. We are sorry to hear, that you were not overall satisfied with our performance during your stay. Though we are happy to hear that you enjoyed our breakfast buffet, we apologize for all circumstances, which appeared during your stay. Regarding the Spa situation, we have certain children opening-hours in our Spa (open for children under 12 until 7.30 pm), we are sorry if our team did not act correctly regarding the hours. We transferred your remarks considering the Spa to the responsible department, to make sure our team gets more aware of the situation. Furthermore, we are sorry to hear, that you did not like the room feature either. Our classic rooms have a size of 19 square meters, which certainly is not as spacious as the higher room categories (e.g. superior double room, luxury double room). In case of another stay, we recommend one of those categories, as they are featured with 27 square meters. We apologize if there were any misunderstandings considering the room size, such as features. We also transferred your remark about the minibar to the responsible department, to improve our service and avoid any possible misunderstandings considering the pricing or the complements. We hope that you give us another possibility to improve our performance and show that we take your comments very serious in order to make every guest feel welcome and appreciated. Kind regards, Your Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall Team

The Sofitel was around $200 per night and does not include breakfast. I recommend a coffee / pastry shop for breakfast, a light lunch, and a nicer dinner. That will run 100-125 Euro per day for a couple.

"if i tell you how we get a super top room for regular price - it won't work anymore."
"Higher floors are quieter, south side rooms are bright and sunny with better view."
"River view not essential"
"fleet view is more expensive but not a real plus compared to city view"
"We stayed in room 4203. Room is on the third floor which makes it a bit weirdly numbered. Even numbers: canal view, uneven: street."
