We had a flying visit to Hamburg to go to the Opera, and liked the George a lot. Room was fine, beds comfy, great design and the bar was fab - reasonably priced and delicious wine and food even post theatre.
The only thing I would say is that reception weren't totally consistent - I asked for a lunch recommendation and they simply told us to turn right out of the hotel - which was true, there were plenty of cafes in easy walking distance. But it was sleeting, we weren't in the city for long and the people next to me received a long list of places to go. We found somewhere we liked on our own, and it's only the smallest of niggles, but when you're in a city for 24 hours it would have been great to get a little bit 'more' - what I actually wanted was a totally fabulous restaurant to treat my husband to lunch in, as the trip was his Christmas present. A beer and a pork knuckle the size of my head just down the street made him happy, and to be honest if I'd had time I could have done my own city research.
All staff were friendly and warm and when we were stuck for cash for taxis as our cards weren't working in German ATMs, they simply added it to our hotel bill and gave us the euros, which was a nice helpful touch.
And if Opera's your thing, the Statsoper was amazing - fabulous 70's building, seats from 4€.
