Stopped into this hotel on a recommendation from a local Hamburg resident & friend. It was a very nice place to stay while en route from Copenhagen to Frankfurt - wished I had stayed another day in Hamburg rather than going onto Frankfurt, but that's another story. The hotel is well situated on the waterfront and has killer views of the city. The bar up on the 20th floor was very well attended by many locals - seems to be a trendy place to gather given the views and selection of beverages. The lobby bar was packed with World Cup fans cheering on their respective teams, so the vibe was certainly 'alive'. Grabbed a couple of sushi plates at the bar, which were outstanding. Good selection of bourbons and whiskeys too - nice touch. Check-in and check-out were fine, but my one complaint was that the receptionist seemed a bit preoccupied and included the breakfast as part of the charge. I had asked her not to include this, but she did anyway. Upon checkout, they had to re-run my charges a few times and seemed a bit put-out by this. Otherwise, a very nice stay.
