Le Meridien Hamburg
Ranked #32 of 321 Hotels in Hamburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2011

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.

I like this area a lot. Cool shopping and places to eat. Very clean and cool place to hang out. When we first checked in our room was sill not ready, we had to wait about 30 min in the bar area. The manager of the front desk felt bad and gave us free breakfast for our entire stay

This was my husband favorite hotel of all th hotel we stayed at in Europe.

Room Tip: front is kind of noisy

Loved the decor, the big bathtub and awesome shower. Location is perfect for bike rides/walks around the lake. Breakfast is delicious upstairs. Would stay here again and recommend.

Room Tip: lake view was awesome, small balcony too in case you're a smoker.

In addition to a fantastic location, the Meridien Hamburg offers "El Ciel", a stylishly decorated skybar on the 9th floor of the hotel offering a breaktaking view of the Alster Lake. We just spent the weekend in one of the hotel's 5 two-level penthouse suites on the 9th floor. The room's design and decor are incomparabe. Hamburg's Christmas markets have just opened for the season, but the room and view were so magnificent that we opted to read in the room with a glass of fine wine rather than brave the windy streets below. The spa is fanstastic too--however, we were a bit disappointed as all services were fully booked during the entire two days of our stay! Book your treatments in advance! This is a location and hotel to return to!

Room Tip: we booked late on the night before arrival and arrived the following morning for an early check-in...

Dear Guest

We are absolutely delighted to hear that you enjoyed our Duplex Suite with the amazing Alster Lake View on our 9th floor as well as the lovely City Hamburg during Winter time. We truly regret that you were not able to book a Spa treatment due to the very busy Christmas period.

We do hope to be able to welcome you back next year. On this occasion please ensure to book the Spa treatments in advance so you will be able to relax after a busy day!

We wish you a very happy New Year and looking forward seeing you again at the Le Royal Méridien Hamburg.

We stayed at this Hotel for 2 nights for a weekend getaway. All I can say is "Excellent" -- loby, facilities, the room -- everything was great. The staff was very friendly, professional and attentive. Our foom was facing the Alster lake - spacious, king-size bed, heavenly pillows and stylish decor. In-room coffee maker and complimentary bottle of water. The hotel's location is very well situated -- close to the center and the shopping. We'll definitely come back.

Very nice and clean hotel with kind service. We stayed 3 ladies in a twinbed room with an additional roll-away bed which was a bit small but comfortable. The room itself was very nice and functional. The location is ok eventhough not totally central (about 10min on foot from the main station). The hotel has a nice spa.What we appreciated most is the possibility to have a "second chance" to have breakfast from 10.30-12.00 on the 8th floor.This is really nice if one doesn't make it to wake up early. Also very helpful, kind and absolutely uptodate was the concierge.Very pleasant stay.
