“Pretty expensive but worth it”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

A very cosy design hotel not far from the city center (2 bus stops from the railway station).
Lobby was stylish, room was stylish and very big, everything was very comfortable.
Breakfasts are pretty expensive, but really worth the price! Mine were included into the price of the room, so I just spent several nice mornings with perfect food & coffee.

There is a parking possibility in the hotel which is very nice, MINI for rent is even nicer:)
Ctypass could be purchsed in the lobby, the taxi are ordered at one click in the I-pad also in the lobby.
I liked the stay there for sure!

I was so pleasantly surprised when I stayed at The George for the first time, what great value for money. Such a beautiful hotel and a great bar and restaurant. I can't wait to go back in March for my next business trip, but would happily recommend for a romantic stay.

Even if the name is English the atmosphere in the hotel is not - it is a hotels where design is very important and you really can't tell which country you're in. The rooms are rather small and everything is brown - the carpet, the doors, the walls - even the lift The design is well thought through - if you then like this style is a different matter... It was quite cosy now in December - but I do wonder how it will feel entering this brown place on a bright spring day?
The staff was very friendly and apologised for not being able to give us a room overlooking the Alster - as they said at check-in "the hotel is full good for us - bad for you" and quite right the view at the hospital across the street is not the same as the Alster... However, the location is very good close to the Alster and the shopping district. You'll find a lot of nice shops and restaurants very close by.
We were very lucky to find a parking spot in the street - otherwise you have to park in the parking basement belonging to the hotel - and it is not free. Breakfast was included in our room rate. It was a very nice buffet - but not in any way extraordinary. Wifi was free. To sum up: good location but it is not as luxurious as it portends to be.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the Alster

We stayed in this hotel as part of a business trip. There was a small additional cost for my other half to stay but it was well worth it. The rooms are a little small but clean and very modern. Food in the restaurant was lovely but as with most hotels a little pricy. But there was a good atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming. We didn't speak any German except a few feeble attempts but this was not an issue as all staff spoke very good English. Location was great just a short walk from the city center. Only thing really missing was a gym but this was easily solved with use of the German Boris bikes or a run round the lake.

Great vibe to the place. Nice design and a wonderful bar/restaurant that would be a good place to eat even if you weren't staying there.

Parking is an issue. There are never enough spots in the garage and the staff are useless in helping you find a spot. Their response to not having any space is "yah, parking is bad around here".

Rooms are nice, staff are alright. A little slow preparing a quick lunch I ordered once. I don't know why it takes over 25 minutes to make a club sandwich when the bar is empty at 15:00. After I specifically said I was in a hurry and what can I have ready in less than 10-15 mins.

But overall it's a good place to stay.

Wifi is free and breakfast is better than most places.

A very nice and good hotel in a central location. Especially in summer when there is a bar on the roof and great views over the Alster.

I have stayed there on a number of occasions and will continue to do so.

Nice hotel. Room was very small but well designed. The best part of the hotel is the location and rooftop bar. The views over the lake were outstanding, and having a cocktail whilst watching the sun set over Hamburg was well worth it. The hotel was very busy with a great vibe in the lobby and communal areas
