We spend a couple of nights at the Elysee Hamburg in May 2014 while visiting the city. The Hotel is nicely located, close to a major train station and also close to the center. A big parking garage will take care of your car. On checking a professional team will help you with it. The rooms are about 300 sq. ft .which I think is not too big for a 5* hotel. Decoration is pretty traditional. The mattress was pretty hard but ok. Unfortunately our room had no balcony which would have been nice because of the wonderful weather we had. However there is a nice restaurant located at ground floor (brasserie) that has a nice patio and where you can sit in the street for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A nice feature is the spa area of the hotel. 2 saunas, a nice swimming pool and lots of wellness offers you can find there. On hot days, all doors will be opened which give a nice breeze through the whole area. And of course you can sit with your lie outside in the sunshine. The breakfast is great, lots of choices, it’s a true German breakfast and even better, you can sit outside – it can’t get better. I just want to mention, that in Hamburg at this location you don’t need a car. The train station with underground is just max. 5 minutes away. From here you can go easily everywhere in town. Just grab a day ticket and you don’t have to think about it anymore. Trains leave every few minutes, so you almost never have to rush or to wait. And you day ticket is also valid for the ferries in the harbor. You can make a free boat tour there with your day ticket! I also like to mention the concierge who was very helpful in advising and booking. You may wonder why I only gave 4 dots and not 5. The reason is that in relation to the price the value is small. The spa area is not opened late (can’t remember, but I think it was 9 pm), the restaurant does not take a reservation even though, later on it was almost found empty (and food was delicious) and the rooms don’t look 5*. Would I go there again: probably yes if I find a good rate but I would check choices also.
