“A truly excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

This is the second time we have stayed at the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Not only is it in a superb location, near shops and attractions but we could not fault it in any way. All of the staff, including cleaners and doormen were extremely polite, friendly and helpful.
Our room overlooked the lake,and was without doubt one of the most comfortable we have stayed in. It was also cleaned to an excellent standard. There are the usual nice touches, good quality bathroom products, an alarm clock, coffee machine complete with a variety of coffee capsules and top quality tea bags and water for guests along with the weather forecast for the following day left on your bed on an evening.
There was plenty of choice for breakfast and again service was slick.
The hotel boasts a spa that I have yet to experience, so no doubt I shall be returning soon.
An excellent hotel.

Having stayed here many times, this is a place I shall always be happy to return to. Here is home away from home, at it's very best. Wonderful rooms, and equally wonderful restaurants. Roomservice is a dream. Having stayed here, one will most often feel that other hotels have a lot to learn. It just doesn't get much better. The old building, with it's old fashioned style, is in it self worth a visit. Stepping in here, one leaves the modern stressful world behind, and walk back in time, to when there was room for delicate luxery, and time to enjoy it. Staff is extremely polite, and yet friendly and caring. Coming back is always a pleasure, and everyone seems to remember your name, and desires, no matter how long it was since the last time.

Being the fourth generation, in my familly, staying here, makes it extra pleasant, and special, to come back.

A personal note to a guest I once happened to meet in the hotel -

If you happen to be one of those unfortunate people, who believe that having enough money to stay here, gives you the right to be both arrogant and rude, then please, go somewhere else. Neither the hotel, it's legacy, nor it's staff deserve anything other, than the respectful kindness they show you!

- This last comment is, as promised, directed to YOU, Mr. And Mrs. J. Unkfood of Crapapple, Kentucky, whom I had the great displeasure of encountering in a hallway, yeling at staff.
I am sure you both remember me, as I was the guest telling you both to grab the first DHL heavy carrier, out of Europe, back to where the beds are big enough, and where the plastic ice cubes, in the champange cooler, will not melt while you're out replenishing your critically low fat levels, in your monumentally unhealthy carcasses. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your European tour(- de mal content)
The world is full of expensive toilets, adequately befitting your kind of business, rudeness and bad manners.

A friend suggested we stop by for tea because the restaurant inside the hotel has an amazing waterfront view. We had afternoon tea along with traditional German cheesecake and an interesting poppyseed cake (both were like nothing we've ever tasted and were absolutely wonderful)! The server was wonderful - very polite and helpful with suggestions and explaining what items were on the menu. We raved about their desserts for weeks!

I always thought that German Hotels were plain simple and purely functional. This stay changed my opinion. This was one of the best experience I had staying in a hotel in Germany. I will describe how !
1) Location : In the heart of the city, in front of a lake. Its a great location for eating out, shopping and relaxing in the heart of the city.
2) Rooms: Old world charm, peaceful, very comfortable bed, silent.
3) Restaurants : I had dinner in the Chinese restaurant, which offered a greats service and above all - one of the best Chinese food I ever had in Germany.
4) Staff: Staff is enthusiastic and helping.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake, may be a bit more expensive- I did not check that.

Booked via phone.
Check in: Efficient and friendly
Check out: Because there were a lot of people, I had to wait, but ok.

Room: Huge room (Standard), comfy bed, very quiet (double door shut down any noise). Modern bathroom. Clean.

Location: Outstanding. Waterfront. Central. Perfect for running (very recommended: Morning jog around the Aussenalster).

Overall: Great hotel, Grand hotel style. Fantastic location. Very friendly staff. I will come back.

This Hotel has a stunning old-world glamour, exquisite service and a stunning location.
We stayed for 2 days and were very sad to leave. The staff could not do enough for us throughout the stay. The location, on the lake, is truly breathtaking every time you look at it. Whenever we came into the hotel, we were greeted by our names. The Grill Restaurant has the type and standard of German food which is both simple and precious. We would certainly return.

Room Tip: Facing the lake.
