Location is one of the best. Very clean, chic and friendly staff.
The king bed is actually TWO twin beds with two twin quilts. That was huge disappointment. The pillows and mattress are a joke too.
The location is excellent and service great. The gym is small, but loved the modern treadmills. Apparently the spa is great too.
The breakfast is overpriced - clearly business clients keep it going (I was there on business too but can't justify the cost to myself)... The bed was the one thing I hated: so soft I was literally unable to get to sleep! I bet it's a fancy brand etc, but genuinely uncomfortable. It's not just me though: a colleague said she's now booking elsewhere in Hamburg after spending one sleepless night at Sofitel...
Modern style, clean and good food. Location of the hotel which is close to the city center.
I didn't like that the pets are allowed.
Location, bar, design
Had to climb stairs to reach room
Staff very friendly, location great, facilities was also perfect
Located perfectly, walking distance to the heart of the city. The room is SPOTLESS! Wifi is fast and stable.
Nothing bad about this hotel. Really.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Location is close to the shopping areas
Car parking is expensive and should give the gusts special rate if not free. laundry service is expensive. Bed is not conformable very soft which cause back pain and they were 2 queen size beds attached instead of one king size as stated in the website. Train passing by causing noise but not too much
Ok if you like 'adequate' service only - otherwise not up to 5 star standards
The room I was offered was directly next to toilets and the door to the Bistro restaurant - totally unsuitable when I had requested a quiet room . I was still charged for the 'special' room despite my protestations. Even though the room was booked two months ago I was not contracted about any special bookings needed for New Years Eve - as a result nowhere to eat in the hotel other than in the bedroom ! No-one at reception in any way interested in my frustrastion .
The comfort of the Hotel and, location and service
That my stay wasn't longer
Good location in the downtown,
very poor bed, so soft that you feel like sleeping on the big pillow
very good service and the hotel locates in the very good place, many shop nearby.
the breakfast place, a little bit crowded
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hamburg...
Right behind the Rathaus and surrounded by Hamburg's best Christmas markets. Stone's throw from glitzy shops on Neuer Wall as well as U and S Bahn stations. Oh and the room was fab!
You could clearly hear the trains pass by from the rooms on the street side. Not too loud but fairly obvious.
Location Wonderfully comfy beds
Service Very long Check in/check out
The location of the hotel couldn't be better, with an easy 5 minutes walk to the city centre and the Christmas market. Modern and clean with very helpful staff
The beds are too soft, but that's a personal preference. The buffet breakfast was excellent but expensive and disappointed not to have coffee/tea making facilities in the room.
location is ideal for walking through the city. And service in hotel is good.
Bed is really too soft as the others commented.
The rooms were of a very impressive standard, not unlike a high design apartment. Reception is forgettable, but the bar is quite charming and the head barman is incredibly friendly and serves a fine gin & tonic with care.
Restaurant was closed quite early when we arrived - and was forced to eat at the horrible tourist steakhouse down the road as it seems midweek and "late nights" in Hamburg don't do together.
Close to city centre. Large bathroom offering walk in shower and bath. Comfortable soft bed. High quality finish throughout the hotel.
For a five star hotel I felt it missed that special touch I often feel in other five stars. The room was great, on the small side but it worked. Non of the TV channels matched the channel you selected which was odd. The facilities are great if you like coffee but some tea bags would have been nice, and if a bottle of mineral water was replenished every day. Staying in the basic room gets you on the front of the hotel which is next to the S-bahn, not great when trying to sleep!
Excellent location Modern Free wifi in the rooms
The bathroom has a complete see-through window into the room which makes it a little weird if you're sharing a room.
Nice room and facilities. Very nice bathroom. Good location. Very good bar. Expensive but very nice breakfast.
Central location, enjoyable pool
I stayed in this hotel not 1st time. Everything is o'k, especially staff and concierge - good service always.
For me bed is too soft.
Great location for walking around, and very close to the train stations. Travelling by train is very cheap. You can travel to the hotel from the airport in 30 minutes direct and it only cost you 3 euros each way. Then you have a 2-3 minute walk. Taxi cost 25 euro.
Breakfast cost 29 euros per person. The spa has a beautiful pool but small and changing facilities very small. To use the steam bath and sauna the hotel request that you go naked.
A fantastic service ; Irene at the reception desk managed to sort my problem out so swiftly and professionaly... shall rest at the Sofitel Hamburg for my next stay, no doubt.
