“Fantastic hotel in a gem of a city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

This hotel is fantastic. The lobby is a little bit quirky, however, somewhat underwhelming, but who cares about that. The room, on the other hand, was absolutely stunning. A huge big room with a massive comfortable bed, sofa and chairs. The bathroom was probably one of the best hotel bathrooms I've seen. It contained a deep bath, walk in shower room with a rainfall shower and a vanity area. The TV also had lots of English channels which was a nice treat when we needed to relax.
During the day we walked into the city centre, which was approx. 10 minutes away. Later at night, we were about to get a taxi directly outside the hotel to go where we wanted.

Overall, a very pleasant stay in this luxurious hotel and I would definitely come back. I would love to come back again during the summer as there is a huge lake directly in front of the hotel.

Very unpleasant experience. Made a booking for a night in december. Received no confirmation email and thought it'll be ok. Two days before travelling to Hamburg I got a letter in the post with a no-show charge of 110 euros. When calling them to ask what is going on I was informed my reservation was made for ten nights a week before my arrivial in Hamburg. The first person I spoke to at reception even suggested I misread the confirmation email which I didn't even get. I am very sure I chose the correct dates and reviewed my booking before clicking on confirm. It's not tue first time I have done this. The Head Office at Starwood just informed me I will not be getting a refund or anything.

Thanks Le Meridien Hamburg for ruining my xmas weekend. Hope you all had a good one. I am sure the hotel is great. However, I will not be staying at Le Meridien Hamburg nor any other Le Meridien on my travels in future.

We recently stayed at this hotel for three nights as a family of four in two rooms. The hotels location is perfect, it is well located to many small bakeries if you want to eat a cheaper breakfast than the one on offer in the hotel (I can't comment on the breakfast as we did not eat in) and they are all within 5 minutes walk. The outlook from the hotel is over the Alster river which is stunning and provides a lovely riverside walkway all the way into the main area of Hamburg. There are two walking routes you can take along the river and they are both beautiful. The hotel rooms are well appointed, ours was an excellent size with a door to an outside terrace. The bathroom is huge, amazing stand alone bath and a shower that is seriously to die for with shower heads above in front and low...all of which can be controlled to suit your water flow. The staff speak excellent English, the reservation was confirmed and a pre welcome email received, the concierge was knowledgeable and extremely happy to help in any way and the desk staff were efficient, fast and friendly. I really do not have a negative comment...I even had to call for a new hairdryer as the one in the room was not working and a replacement arrived within minutes. Great hotel, well managed and we will most definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms with a terrace, especially in summer would be beautiful or rooms with a view over the river ar...

Easy walk from the main train station and beautiful view of the the Alster lake. Room was clean and artfully decorated with very comfortable bed and the same fantastic view as the 9th floor gourmet restaurant. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience.

Sometimes in the Le Meridien hotels, I end up wondering how they organize the distribution of the interior concept since most of the brand seems to inhibit the very same layout and even fragrance. However staying in this property was an plesant experience, leaving nothing to complain about. Lakeview, breakfast, service and quality was all exceeding the expectations. However be prepared to walk a bit to the central or other locations, keeping in mind the nice small bar they hold at the top floor. My next stay in Hamburg will definitely be in this hotel.

Very good hotel 10 minute walk from the main train station on the outer city lake (Aussenalter). Very spacious, beautiful room (room 718). Beware that you may have to pay a surcharge of €30 for an extra kids bed. Sometime this is not yet in the room rate. The bar on the top floor offers great views of the lake. If you want an alternative to the pricey (but good) breakfast buffet, just walk up to the street "Lange Reihe" where there are several good cafés.

Had an amazing stay l. Happily will return. Design and style of hotel beautiful. Bed was quite comfortable and rooms quiet. Breakfast variety and hotel personnel were always helpful and professional. What however made the difference was the view from the roof-top restaurant! Lovely!
