Where to stay in Hamburg, Germany
Excellent hotel. Many popular public figures have visited this hotel. The service is excellent. The location is great. I can only say good things about this hotel.
Nice hotel, nice rooms. The service staff in the restaurant could have been more helpful and proactive.
After sitting in Hamburg for 2 extra nights due to airport closures, I was allocated to the hotel until my next flight. I was very pleased with it. The staff was very helpful and couldn’t do enough for me. The room was delightful and the food there was great!
Great hotel! Convenient location, good service, friendly staff, comfortable and cozy room, quality housekeeping and delicious breakfast
Great hotel with friendly staff and very nice rooms. Very well decorated and use of space. The food is excellent as well. It is close to the harbor and shopping center. And other attracktions. I hope to come back one day.
Wonderful hotel, great rooms, brilliant facilities and the location was perfect. Highly recommend.
Lindner Hotel Am Michel was my home for almost 3 months during the summer of 2017. I have only kind words to share on this hotel and the attentive staff.
Conveniently located. Close to good restaurants and the harbor. Great breakfast!!! Check in at the 8 mark can be slow. Plan ahead.
The hotel is close to downtown and the shopping district. The rooms have a fun design (no spoilers) so if you share it, you better be with a loved one. As for the service, it is impeccable. Breakfast is standard, and if you order an omelet, you better wait until others grab it :). The only downside is the lack of view from either side of the building. There are several nearby.
Very clean and efficient. The room was very comfortable. WiFi was fast. The staff was courteous. It’s a great location. Walking distance to the river, attractions and interesting restaurants.
The place is good ! Good breakfasts ! The room is a triple. I had the bathroom with no bidet. The shower isn’t bad, but the hand basin is uncomfortable. The restaurant was very well stocked. Why such a hotel, if you have dinner in the room … no mini bar. That’s not good either. At five stars in my opinion is not good.
Disappointment. Price does not correspond to the quality. Good location. Large rooms. Staff was great. Not much else to look forward to. As a guest of the hotel, I did not get into the restaurant on the ninth floor for three days. Probably good cuisine there, but I do not recognize it. Sandwich at the same bar.
We chose Le Meridien for a big weekend in Hamburg and were not disappointed. Friendly and attentive staff as well as a great hotel location. I might have deducted half a star (if possible) for very small things like the bathroom being a little uncomfortable (not too much room for toiletries, light from above – so hard to do my makeup), but that’s just a quibble on my part.
What an amazing hotel! The rooms are very modern and spacious, the restaurant has a great view of the lake. It is very conveniently located close to downtown, but a little away from all the craziness. Best of all, there’s also free bike rentals!
Awesome hotel! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and spacious and beautifully done. The showers are large and powerful. I was in a room looking at the interior of the roof cavity, so not Vista yet, interesting architecturally. The bar is great with a view of the harbor, etc.
The hotel is located right in the concert hall-it’s a great idea. The staff is very interested in giving the 5 star feeling. The room at the Oder Restaurant in the Executive Lounge, unfortunately not worthy of a 5 star hotel. Cheeseburger for 20 euros was delivered with nothing special in it or on it…but not worth the price, which for the extra service charge of 5 euros for delivery in.
Really amazing building. The interior gives too good vibe. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming.
Cozy, clean, comfortable. The toilet is separate from the shower, what could be easier, more logical and convenient. Breakfast is expensive. Nearby is a huge public parking lot. After 23:00, parking is open to hotel guests.
A nice, fresh hotel. Ideal for business travellers of course but I don’t know many people who would go to Hamburg for other reasons))). Particular attention should be paid to the transition to the dining room. The dining room itself is very nice. In general, no complaints, but love, too. Came in, fell asleep, had breakfast, on. P.S. apples at the reception not bad.
Lovely hotel with comfortable rooms and/ or dinner breakfast room. The only problem I can point out is for the English TV channels. I honestly find it very strange that a hotel that has many guests due to business travel only has German TV channels. I have rarely experienced that at other hotels. It definitely made our stay less enjoyable.
Fancy hotel with professional staff. Well equipped rooms and a very interesting Italian restaurant where you have to cross a small bridge. The location is very good, in a good area with good access to bus and train very close. Unfortunately, the wireless internet access is not the best, but it depends on the location of the room. Overall, good value for money.
The bed and breakfast Hamburg-Nord is located in the northern part of Hamburg, just a 10-minute drive from Hamburg Airport and the city center. It offers modern, stylish rooms with free WiFi and satellite TV.
The room is great, so is the breakfast. Good service. Location is good, walking distance to some attractions nearby. Convenient parking, close and good price. I recommend.
The staff is amazing and very helpful.The place is easily accessible by train and cab. Lots of beautiful buildings and heritage structures within walking distance. great location. the rooms are great. I especially liked the fact that when I walked into the room the radio jazz music came on automatically. gave me an instant uplift from my 10 hour flight. music can be heard in too.
Nice hotel in a good location that provides easy access to downtown. After three stays here for about 13 months, I found the rooms to be a little noisy, but I sleep sensitively (street/street noise). The staff is welcoming and friendly, they tend to fix problems quickly. Maintenance (minor) and cleaning consistency (bathroom cleanliness and removal partially used.
Very nice, comfortable, well equipped hotel for pampered guests. Very good value for money? Would love to come back if we can get tickets for the Elfie!
We always stay at the Hotel Madison when we are in Hamburg as we love this hotel. The rooms are well equipped and spacious, the breakfast and food in the restaurant is very good quality and the service from all the staff is the same. This time we stayed in one of the suites with our family, four adults and a child, and had a wonderful time. Can be recommended!
Wonderful hotel, I really liked the music playing at the entrance to the rooms. The rooms were spotlessly clean with good bathrooms. You could have told people a little earlier about the naked spa though
We had a spontaneous visit today for our 4th wedding anniversary. We have it as a tradition now. As always, EAST is a great address to have a little distraction . Great cocktails and a nice atmosphere.
Perfect location and design. Full of history. The restaurant is very nice in Japanese style. Great wine selection. This is the best place in Hamburg for me. The outside of the hotel is cozy as well, you will love this place. The rooms are made amazing by the way. The sauna and wellness center is a perfect place to relax.
Wonderful house with great atmosphere, the rooms are clean and elegant. I loved the style and how the furniture is arranged. Separate shower and toilet rooms
einfach nur supi. ich fand meinen Aufenthalt da sehr schön vor allem weil die Zimmer alle verschiedene Dekorationen haben.
Just next to the zoo. The whole interior decoration is more like wild animals. Good service and a cozy room.
Uniquely decorated, clean, environment friendly, attentive staff, very good breakfast, good location
Broke my deoderant bottle voice, no note about it! Would have been nice if cab order Kiosk was in English. Nice and modern hotel, I will be back!!!
Great atmosphere. Elegant. Great service and very friendly person at the front desk. Also a great location. I liked the room very much and not expensive. Will be back again.
Beautiful new hotel. The room was stylish and spacious. The staff was very friendly and so helpful.
Very friendly, rooms are not large but well equipped and with a decent shower. Can’t comment on the food as we ate every night and for breakfast!!! Very well located for downtown and the newly rebuilt dock area. Definitely recommend it.
Great hotel!!! We had a cheap hotel room below street level. However, it was quite bright and cozy. It was very clean, the service was excellent, and the breakfast was second to none: plentiful and delicious. We will be back!
The hotel with a beautiful setting high ceilings not a bad design. The location is not very good. Although there is a metro nearby.
Good location, but bad windows. The feeling that you sleep on the roadway. Just dozed off, hardly slept. If we came for a drink and a walk, it would be okay. And since the trip was business-morning not so much.
We stayed here for a couple of nights while walking around town. Located in the old camp building concentration, it’s not much to look at from the outside. Inside you find that it is what it says it is, an inexpensive hotel/hostel. We booked a family room. Reception was not the quickest, but we were checked in and told where our room was. It was a large, shared like room, double room.
I stayed in a room with 4 beds along with two friends, sharing with a fourth person (unknown of course). The hotel is huge (a real maze, in the beginning), but full elevators; the room was clean, soap and towels are provided for each guest, linens instead they “rent out” in parts; the room has a locker that you can lock your own; the bathroom and shower are indoor.
The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast is very good. They need more staff at the front desk and bar, Check in took 30 minutes and we couldn’t just go to the front desk to ask directions or get more information. There is always a long line there.
Very nice hotel downtown at a very reasonable price. If you get a high room, you will have an amazing view of the city
It is on the high side, you have to climb a high staircase from the port side. But the view from the window is amazing. Lots of tourist stores and cafes nearby.
Nice hotel in an interesting location. There is a restaurant and bar. The prices are quite affordable. Rooms are great and there is a mini bar. Cab from the airport to the hotel is about 30 euros.
Very nice, clean, smart, kind, very good location If I can improve anything. I stay in 237 and I’m not sure if it’s just my bed, but the mattress on the bed is terrible. Very cheap Matt’s spring is too soft and even the spring makes a squeaking sound. Other than that. despite the very spacious room huuuge shower with a chair..better to have a bathhouse. One space. and the last House keepers.
The rooms are large, spacious and clean and have a good view. What I liked best was the so called living room on the 8th floor where you could have breakfast drinks. It was like a big and cozy kitchen with a delicious breakfast. Unfortunately, the front desk staff was a little disorganized and they also failed to provide the promised free airport shuttle. But otherwise an impression.
Nice spacious rooms with a nice interior. Nice, friendly staff. No toiletries are not provided though in the rooms. Good breakfast with a variety of options available (£10-12£ per person). There are quite a few good dining options outside the hotel. Hotel is close to the city center (walking distance) which include Europe Passage, Twin Lakes.
Great Hotel. Pros – Great location – can walk to quite a few good viewpoints around Hamburg Wonderful staff – very friendly staff. easy check in… helpful through out stay Easy to check out. Rooms – comfortable and clean as you would expect for a 4-5 star hotel. Food – tasted good Minuses – Food – lacked an assortment, hardly any international.
Stayed here for two nights during a business trip and had a great stay. The staff was very friendly and professional and the room was large. The room was quite large and it looked like it was for wheelchair guests. The spacious room was very bright with floor to ceiling windows. The bed was large, but the mattress was too soft for my taste. It was a field with a spring.
Everything is okay with this hotel. Try to get a discount from the booking platform or elsewhere to get a good deal. The rooms have everything you need, good light for all your needs. It was very clean and to the courtyard, very quiet. The sauna is a little small, no pool or anything. But they have a great bar! And the restaurant is a great choice. We had a late 4 course dinner and were very positively surprised.
Where to stay in Hamburg
The classy, Germanically austere and thoughtful capital of Northern Germany, Hamburg is beautiful, rich and meticulous down to the last detail. And the city is also ancient, has experienced many momentous events and is ready to tell you all about them. Even a long vacation here will not let you visit all of its memorable corners and learn all of the secrets that it holds. Like all cities in Germany, the city is adapted to the needs of the people – everywhere you can eat, drink, stay in Hamburg, in general, have a great time.
Prices in Hamburg
Hamburg, like all corners of Europe, is expensive for tourists. Of course, prices are not as expensive as in Paris or Milan. Although always find a decent option for a reasonable amount, you should only look. There is no division of prices by geography: both expensive and cheap facilities are evenly spread throughout all neighborhoods and even in the very center there is a good chance to find a cheap mini-hotel or hostel.
Prices, even if not much, are influenced by seasonality. The period of mass tourist attendance, as elsewhere in the north, falls in summer, from May to September. At this time the cost of rooms creeps up. During the New Year’s holidays prices also go up – Europeans go to rest, celebrate and shopping. If the time of the trip is not important, it is better to choose the spring months, when prices in hotels are reduced and the city is flourishing after the winter sleep.
All Hamburg hotels are of high quality – furnished, decorated and organized with the famous German scrupulousness and meticulousness, so guests are always guaranteed a first-class service, even if it is a modest hotel with 5 rooms or youth hostel. The service is top-notch, the range of services and the centuries-old mansions, ancient churches and elaborate palaces are a perfect backdrop.
A night in a double room in a three-star hotel will cost about 100€. Fours are often as expensive as threes, with rooms costing 100-120€. 5-star hotels charge from 150€. Hostels offer overnight stays for €15.
Districts of Hamburg
The good news is that each area has its own charm and attractions. In addition, the public transport network is so efficient and direct that you can get anywhere in Hamburg with ease.
Traditionally, the most attractive areas for visitors stand out:
- St. George.
- St. Pauli.
- Hafen City.
A central neighborhood surrounded by museums, monuments and Hamburg’s main attractions. The Alster Lake is nearby, where water lovers relax in the summertime. The rest of the year you can enjoy a wonderful view of the coast, here are organized picnics and walks, and on some days of sailing regattas, boat tours and other activities.
The area is close to the central station. It is a cosmopolitan quarter, where cultures of different peoples mix, hence the ethnic restaurants, shops and stores. Entire streets are filled with bars and pubs. St. George has a lot of cheap hotels and hostels, which is certainly a reason to look around.
Many alleyways lead you to churches, mosques, and in some places you may stumble upon an entrance to an erotic movie theater or a sex shop. In St. George there is the House of Arts and Crafts, a lot of 17th and 18th century architecture, with the towers of skyscrapers sticking out from behind.

The district is nestled on the right bank of the Elbe. A port quarter with contrasts and peculiarities. Once a refuge for migrants, Altona is now a much improved neighbourhood, regaining its former prestige. Its beautiful architecture, the abundance of cultural sites and the abundance of green areas make it self-sufficient and livable. Some streets still have hippie and kooky crowd scenes, but overall the neighborhood is well-maintained and comfortable in terms of infrastructure.
Entire streets consist of stores, boutiques, and bars. For example, Neuss-Grosse-Bergstarsse or Barenfelder-Strasse. There is also the Mercado shopping center, and from the observation deck there is an excellent view of the river and the bridge.
In Alton you can visit the North German Museum, the French Park or the Town Hall, not to mention many anonymous historical mansions from the Kingdom of Denmark.

This is the most laid back and promiscuous neighborhood. St. Pauli is tacitly called the capital of porn industry and other base passions. This is the abode of vice, full of sex shops, erotic studios, cinemas, and the Red Light District – Reeperbahn or Mile of Sin. The area’s fame is bolstered by its many bars, pubs, cabarets, strip clubs, and cheap hotels. And the logical continuation of the set – the Museum of Erotic Art.
But it’s also perfectly suited to a fun, carefree life and is even moderately spiritual, thanks to St. Michael’s Cathedral and several other churches. It’s also a neighborhood for artists, musicians, and intellectuals. Rounding out the diverse mix is the Hamburger House Park, with its many attractions for all ages.
St. Pauli is an affordable place to stay in Hamburg, within walking distance of the city’s historic districts. Students, young people, hipsters, and promiscuity seekers traditionally settle here. There’s not much to do here with kids, but if you want to get away for a while, you won’t find a better place to stay.
The hotels are: Centro Hotel North, Heimat St. Pauli, Cityhotel Monopol, Holiday Inn Express, IntercityHotel Hamburg Dammtor-Messe, NH Collection Hamburg City, Centro Hotel Keese, Imperial.
Historic district in the northwest of the city. Known since the 13th century as a village, but from the rural youth of Eidelstadt only a rustic house with a reed roof survives. In the area the routes of the city converge, as it is the main transport hub of Hamburg – there are transfer stations, stops. If you want to experience the rhythm of the big city, this is the place to come.
Residents from all over Hamburg flock to the shopping center of Eidelstadt for shopping. The nearby Peace Tree, planted many years ago, and the Sola Bona Park are attractive to tourists and offer something for everyone.
The hotels are: Select Hotel Hamburg Nord, The Hostel, Arena Hostel, Gastehaus Picklapp, Park Hotel Hamburg Arena, Mercure Hotel Hamburg am Volkspark, Hotel Engel, Lindner Park-Hotel Hagenbeck, Zum Zeppelin, Bedpark Stellingen.
Cosy residential area for the whole family. Lots of park areas, children’s areas, sports points, stores, entertainment venues and attractions. A great place to stay in Hamburg, regardless of the purpose of the trip. The central place is Unna Park and Eimsbüttel Park. Picnics, walks, rides and simply lounging on the emerald lawns are all fun things to do in your free time.
The church of Procopius of Ustiug, Christ Church, St. Boniface Church, the synagogue, and other places of worship are located in Aimsbüttel. The streets of the quarter are full of buildings from the late 19th century. You can also notice an abundance of Art Nouveau architecture.
What sets the neighborhood apart from its neighbors is an abundance of bakeries, coffee shops, and pastry shops that fill the air with the wonderful aroma of fresh buns, cakes, and great coffee. Of course, the entire city of Hamburg is crammed with such places, but here there are especially many of them and they are the most picturesque.
The hotels are NH Hamburg Mitte, Schlaflounge, Lindner Park-Hotel Hagenbeck, Grand Elysee Hamburg, Park Hotel Hamburg Arena, Zum Zeppelin.
A new, modern neighborhood, just made for those who yearn to experience the atmosphere of a modern and successful European metropolis. Hafen City is very elaborate, laid out and comfortable, perfect for long term or short term stays in Hamburg.
Abundant modern buildings, lots of playgrounds with slides and trampolines, wide avenues with bike lanes and sidewalks. All the first floors of the buildings are adapted for sundries stores and cafes, restaurants and bars. The main attraction is the controversial Philharmonic Hall, which has caused quite a lot of political battles and discussions in the media.
Hotels: The Westin Hamburg, 25hours Hotel HafenCity, Altes Hafenamt, Ameron Hotel Speicherstadt.
Colorful and pleasant area, where the historic buildings peacefully coexist with the new buildings. Wooded areas and parks surround the buildings, and the Bille River flows through the Bergedorf. A medieval castle dominates the neighborhood. The castle was built over several centuries, so each part has a different style.
Nearby is the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, built in the 15th century. There is also an old mill, an inn, the Kaiser Wilhelm square with a monument to the Kaiser himself and an old fountain, and even a ride on the Museum Railway, on which exciting races are regularly held.
In Bergedorf you can still see the wooden building of the railway station from the 19th century, and there is also an observatory here. If you’re pondering where to stay in Hamburg for a sightseeing holiday, you can put this area on your list of contenders.
