Hamburg is a beautiful city, and trust me, The Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall is a great place to stay in. Of course, this having been my first visit to Hamburg and never having stayed at any other hotel in Hamburg, I will not try to compare the hotel to other hotels. Instead, I will just review the best parts of the hotel, which is almost everything.
To start of, the welcome when I reached the Hotel made me feel like someone special. The check-in was a breeze and the receptionist was very efficient. Felt nice to be asked how my journey was. Felt nice. There were bell-hops to help with your luggage, but since mine was a short vacation and I had only a small bag, I managed it myself. My room was exactly as I had requested. High floor with a great view of the canal. Traveling alone, I had booked a single room. The room was spacious, well lit with an extremely comfortable bed. After a week of working very hard, this vacation was mostly to be about resting and I got a couple of great nights sleep.
The breakfast in the hotel was excellent. So many choices and everything well prepared. I always try to have breakfast at my hotel since it is the most important meal of the day and I don't like to interrupt my sightseeing to during the day to find a good place to lunch. So, I truly appreciate the nice breakfast I had at the hotel. Dinner at the restaurant Ticino in the hotel was also a great experience. To begin with, there weren't much choices for me in the main courses as I don't eat most meats except chicken. But the waitress very kindly offered to make me a chicken dish with sides - the chicken breast with a side of roasted potatoes and rice was excellent. I must complement the chef and also thank the waitress.
The first day the Concierge was a bit busy, but I got enough help from the receptionist at the front desk on sightseeing options. She also showed me where to go to find bars which show football as I didn't want to miss the last day of the football season. The hotel is just a 5 min walk from the suburban train stop Stadthausbrucke and the metro stop Rodingsmarkt. So it is very easy to get from and the main sightseeing spots. Many spots are also within walking distance from the hotel and the City Sightseeing Roundtrip bus stops right in front of the hotel.
Finally, the checkout was a breeze. Everything was perfectly prepared and it took only a few moments to pay the extras (as I had per booked the room online). I stored my luggage as my train back was in the evening and finished my final day of sightseeing.
Hamburg is a beautiful city and I would definitely be visiting again. After staying at the Sofitel Hamburg, I don't think I will stay at another hotel when in Hamburg. Thank you, Sofitel for my making my stay great, I definitely recommend this hotel to all...
