I love this place. Just a shirt walk to the train station and city centre - ideal hangover cure.

Great bar and friendly atmosphere.

The George Hotel is a very stylish and cozy place located very close to the Aussenalster lake. The interior of the hotel is very attractive, both in the room and in the lounge and bar. I particularly liked the little library lounge near the lobby. Staff were very nice and polite. Unfortunately the roof terrace was closed in December. Should come back in the summer!

I am a fan of modern design with clear lines and no fuss so i loved the interior of the George! It feels funky, modern and stylish without missing out on the business traveler's must-haves: free wireless, nice bathroom toiletries, large wardrobe, bathrobe & slippers and so on. As a female traveler i loved the huge walk-in shower, the fluffy carpet , the free magazines and the warm, cosy feel. Only small complaint (as in many design hotels) - all that indirect lighting leaves the room a little dark when the sun goes down. And why do the hairdryers have to have that thumb-numbing safety button???

The Hotel is very close to the Außenalster and very close to the nice street Lange Reihe, where many little shops, Bars and Cafés are located. It is also not dar to the train station or to the city centre!
The hotel itself is nicely furnished in a black british style and the rooms are spacious and cozy. Also the bar in the hotel is recommendable and the price for the stay is reasonable.
Check also the spa!

The George is one of the newest upscale design hotels of Hamburg. It's located in the upcoming neighbourhood of St. George, extremely close to the Aussen Alster lake, and with a bus station right by the hotel's entrance. There are partial views of the lake from some rooms. It's decor is a contemporary taking on english style, with a little bit gothic influences, like the dark atmosphere throughout. Rooms are spacious, and equiped with every amenity one might need, especially considering it's officialy a 4 star hotel. There is room for improvement in the variety of breakfast. Staff was generally efficient and friendly. Free wifi is a plus as well.

A great centrally located, sophisticated, well designed hotel. Good size rooms, comfortable with a great restaurant and bar. Of note, the bar is one of the best stocked I've seen of late, with a great variety of different brands from all over the world. Great breakfasts too. The George would be at "home" in any city.
Could use a more friendly concierge type service tho...but overall, a great place to stay.

To me, this is a "boutique hotel" the way they were intended. Cool, personal, charming and beautiful. It has exactly what I am looking for in a hotel. Personality, style and excellent food/bar. I will most definitely come back to The George next time around in Hamburg.

Note: If you DON'T like boutique hotels, or if you think design-hotels in general suck - stay away from The George. You won't feel at home.
