Renaissance Hamburg Hotel
Ranked #37 of 322 Hotels in Hamburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2012

Hamburg seems to have become a very popular city for weekend travelers, so we were a bit surprised by the relatively high hotel prices in spite of the many hotel options. We settled for the Renaissance, mostly for its location in the heart of the shopping district--Hamburg is known for very classy shops--and excellent public transportation options; there are several subway (U-Bahn) and regional train (S-Bahn) stops near the hotel, including a direct S-Bahn link to the airport. A very affordable day pass provided us with easy access to many parts of the city.

The hotel probably dates from the early 1980s when the Hanseviertel shopping arcade was completed. It has a typical US hotel feel, including the many pillows on the bed, the color of the furnishings, and type of bathroom sink. But this went hand-in-hand with the usual quality you get when staying at a Marriott property. Given the prices at the hotel, we opted for getting breakfast in one of the cafes in the Hanseviertel, which we enjoyed a lot. Finally, as remarked by others, we found the staff at check-in extremely helpful, efficient, and pleasant to deal with. Overall, we felt that the relationship between the hotel's price and services offered was about right.

We stayed here for 1 night pre a cruise. I chose it for its location, close to everything (the Marriott is just 2 streets away if you are looking for 5 star). I was a little disappointed with the size of the hotel, the reception and bar were basically the same place - just inside the main entrance door. I agree with previous comments that the staff were helpful, particularly in reception and the bar, I found though that the staff in the restaurant for breakfast were aloof. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay, it is suited to a city break visit, but nothing longer. The room was adequate in size and decor and what you’d expect from a 4 star - the bed was particularly comfortable and pillows were great, We booked a delux room, so I’m not sure what size the standard room would be like. I felt the price was a bit hefty for what we got. 209e for 1 night B&B. So in summary, if you’re looking for a central location, comfortable room and bed and you get a good rate, then you can’t go wrong with this hotel

We stayed here hwen visiting relatives and found the room to spacious and the beds were really comfortable. The staff on the desk were great and helped us to arrange transport and answered our numerous questions with a smile.
We ate in the restaurant and even though the newspaper menus were a little odd, the food was very tasty and one of the better meals we had in hamburg.

The hotel is very well located near Jungfernstieg and is set in an old newspaper printing building. The interior design is old school and in line with the feel of the building. Breakfast is very nice and the staff are also friendly.

Some areas of the hotel could do with being refurbished (7th floor in particular feels a little bit neglected), but there is a small gym also on site and the good location compensate for the musty feel in some areas.

A convenient location to the center of Hamburg. Staff were friendly and helpful. WiFi should be free for hotels of this level rather than euro 12.50 per day. This is price gouging of the worse kind when less expensive hotels offer WiFi for free.

I stayed there for two nights, worked i my room half of the time and toured the city/attended a conference the rest. The room was spacious and clean, the desk was of good size, the staff was helpfull, the lobby is nice, location is near the alster and the pedestrian zone, located in a nice square. Would come back whenever in Hamburg.

Stayed in Hamburg for 3 nights at Renaissance Hotel.
It is in the middle of the city and the closest U-bahn to the hotel is Jungfernstieg and very good shopping options.
When you enter the hotel, you are greated by a welcomming staff.
The room we got was nice, quiet and clean.
The restaurant at the hotel is good.
All in all we had a good experience...
