I was traveling from Vienna, were I stayed at Le Meridien on the Opera Ring to Hamburg, where I was booked into the Royal Meridien. Vienna was business, Hamburg was to attend a wedding but I still expected the comfort and convenience that Starwood properties usually offer. The difference between Viennese charm and north German efficiency was slight; the Hamburg staff was welcoming and helpful at all times with numerous taxi bookings all faultlessly delivered. One important distinction: Vienna had free wireless, Hamburg had paid broadband.
The room was stylish, attractive and comfortable with a breathtaking view of the Alster. The hotel is convenient to public transportation, the central rail station, and the incomparable shopping at Jungfernstieg and the surrounding area. (The champagne bar at the Alsterhaus is well worth a visit if you enjoy bubbly.)
The bathroom came with an elegant tub and large shower with excellent water pressure. Towels in German hotels can often resemble large a table napkin but the Meridien Royal had proper-sized bath towels. As a musician, I appreciated the iPod dock.
Hamburg is a city with iconic hotels such as the Atlantic and Vier Jahreszeiten but you will pay substantially less at the Meridien and I dare say find a more comfortable room to retire to at the end of your day.
