Rated 4 out of 5 by JNA1 Well located modern property
This hotel has an enviable position of the lake, so try and book a room with a balcony and waterfront view. The bathrooms are smartly appointed and the shower one of the best I've experienced for a while. Leave plenty of time for checking out - the front desk is relatively small. Tip: try the top floor bar if you enjoy single malt whisky - an excellent selection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike46 Great Location, but not a great hotel
Very nice location, but the hotel is not perfect.
check in: long line, nobody cares about priority check in
Friendly check in staff, but no welcome as SPG Platinum member. no room upgrade.
The hotel has no executive Lounge and no alternative has been offered, not even a drink voucher.
The deluxe rooms offer a grate view, but are somewhat small. No even enough space to but the bathroom articles for 2 persons on the shelf next to the sink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike46 Nice stay with only small downsides
Check -in was smooth and we got the promised upgrade to a suite. The suite itself is very nice with a balcony and a great view of the Alster lake. As the room is quite modern the use quite a lot of tainted glass ( bathroom to bedroom and living room to bedroom) meaning you will always get a lot of light into the bedroom, if one puts on the light or opens the curtains in the other room.
The have a special coffee maker, which is nice and a water boiler for tea. tea selection is limited ( no green tea) and did not get replenished on day 2.
Staff in general was very friendly and hence the hotel has a nice atmosphere.
We were only disappointed that we could not use any facilities after check.out especially on a hot day it would have been nice to be able to shower somewhere before starting the trip back home.
Like I said, small things to be improved, but overall a nice stay.
Another positive thing is that 2 blocks away is a great multicultural area, with nice cafe's, restaurants and bars.

At the last minute, just a week before our arrival, I saw the Hamburg ballet was in town...I tried the book office, no tickets. On a whim, I called the concierge desk.. They were not hopeful, yet, several days later, the magic tickets! The two gentleman at the desk were outstanding, as was the ballet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos French Elan, German Efficiency
OVERALL IMPRESSION: With its beautiful location on the Alster Lake - yet just a few minutes walk from the train station and central Hamburg, this property makes an ideal base and perhaps offers the most youthful alternative amongst the city’s de luxe accommodation offerings.
SPG RECOGNITION: Upgrade to a Junior Suite....it was definitely the largest room on the corridor but I personally wouldn’t define it as a Junior Suite simply because it features one large open space with a glass partition and, unfortunately, faced the back of the property. Breakfast amenity was the full buffet in the rooftop restaurant which was superb.
THE ROOM: Furnishings of the highest caliber, fresh modern feel, gorgeous bathroom with separate (power) shower compartment and fun modern take on a ball-and-claw bathtub (painted green). Separate dressing room.
LOCATION: Excellent as per above.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: The roof-top Restaurant is an absolute winner. Elegant cuisine, impeccable service, reasonable prices.

This was a beautiful hotel set on the lake in the middle of Hamburg. The hotel was classed in the brochure as a 'Business Hotel' but we took 3 young grandchildren and it was very kid friendly. Rooms were luxurious and food was excellent. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Staying in a Junior Suite is quite nice. Using the SPA Facilities on a weekend wasn't relaxing at all due to kids and lots of tourists which turnes it into a crowded area. Same at Breakfast. Nice location, when you are able to enjoy it in the very early morning.
