Today we traveled from Amsterdam to Hamburg, Germany by train. We toured the town, had a great dinner and now are relaxing by the awesome pool. The pool at the Sofitel is an experience, not just a pool. Enjoying the trip. Love reading the comments.

Hiya All,

Here we are in hamburg, a city in Northern Germany with a population of 1.8million. We arrived in hamburg around 6pm after a long train ride from Amsterdam, as you may have seen on the news there is a bucket load of snow over here so the trains had to be slowed down a little. No real dramas as yet (touch wood) that's what she …

Miniature Wunderland

Wow, wow, wow! Hamburg is home to the biggest model railway in the world. It is impossible to describe the scale and detail of this magical place, but we spent 4.5 hours there and didn't even notice it! I am certain there are many things we missed and could easily spend another half a day there! Lunch opposite the Rathaus, another amazing building. Walk back through the gardens again, via two more super playgrounds and of course an ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall

    Tolles Hotel in Hamburg

    from

    Wir haben Ende Januar für ein langes Wochenende im Sofitel Hamburg gewohnt. Es ist ein wunderschön gestaltetes Hotel und ich würde mich schon als ein "schwieriges" TripAdvisormietglied klassifizieren. Ich konnte wirklich nichts Schlechtes an diesem Hotel finden. Das Ein und Auschecken lief reibungslos, schnell und immer mit einem Lächeln. Das Zimmer war wunderschön, im 6 Stock mit tollem Ausblick über den zugefrorenen Fluss gelegen. Es hatte ein großes, komfortables Bett, eine geschmackvolle Beleuchtung, aus der Dusche wollte ich gar nicht mehr heraus, einen schönen großen Spiegel, richtigem Wasserdruck, qualitative gute Ausstattung (Roger & Gallet), TV mit den verschiedensten internationalen Kanälen, einer komfortablen Sitzecke neben dem Bett, einen sicheren Safe, der zum öffnen Kreditkarten oder Pässe lesen kann, eine sehr gut ausgestattete Minibar und das zu nicht überteuerten Preisen. Das Frühstück habe wir nicht ausprobiert, da es uns für rund 20 Euro etwas zu teuer war. Wir haben uns dann unseren eigenen Kaffee und ein paar Muffins aus dem nahe gelegenen Balzac Café mitgebracht, was niemanden gestört hat. Das Hotel hat eine nette und gemütliche Bibliothek im Keller des Gebäudes, falls Sie Ihre Zeitung ganz entspannt in ruhiger Atmosphäre lesen möchten. Nachdem ich einen Tag sehr lange in der Bibliothek gewesen war, hatte ich dummer Weise meinen Cashmereschal dort vergessen. Als ich am nächsten Tag an der Rezeption nach diesem fragte, holte ihn das Mädchen sofort, mit einem Lächeln auf den Lippen hinter dem Tisch hervor! Alles in allem ein erstklassiges Hotel mit perfektem Service. Wir haben für ein Zimmer mit Doppelbett 125 Euro pro Übernachtung bezahlt (ohne Frühstück und hatten direkt einige Monate zuvor über accor.com gebucht). Werde hier ohne Zweifel wieder hinfahren.

    Tolles Designerhotel mit passendem Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis

    from

    Das Dorint Sofitel etabliert sich gerade sehr schnell als ein gutes und günstiges Hotel unter all den neu designten und neu gebauten. Das Gebäude selbst ist weniger spektakulär, aber das Hotelinnere hat es in sich. Die Zimmer sind geräumig mit modernem Interieur ausgestattet, ist aber trotzdem - im Gegensatz zu manch anderem modern durchgestyltem Hotel - sehr bequem. Die Lage ist erstklassig: Direkt im Stadtzentrum, nur Minuten von den Haupteinkaufsstraßen und der Binnenalster entfernt, liegt es direkt am Kanal. Wir hatten Glück und bekamen ein Zimmer im 8 Stock mit Blick auf die Hafengegend. Dieses Hotel behauptet sich sehr gut durch angenehme Wochenedtarife und guten Service unter den sonst sehr teuren Designerhotels.

    Top notch Hamburg Hotel

    from

    We stayed in Sofitel Hamburg at the end of January for a long weekend. It is a beautful design hotel and although I am a "difficult" tripadvisor member:-), I couldn't find anything wrong with the hotel. Check-in and out was sufficient, fast and always with a smile. Room was wonderful on the 6th floor overlooking the frozen river, comfortable big bed, lighting with taste, bathroom a delight, shower I didn't want to get out from-nice big mirror, right water pressure, good quality amenities (Roger & Gallet), TV with many foreign channels, comfortable seating area in front of the bed, smart closing safe fitting credit cards and passports, discreet stuff, well-stocked mini bad and not outrageously expensive. We didn't try the breakfast, since it was kind of pricey (20 euros per person) but we brought in our own coffee and muffins from the nearby Balzac Coffee (a kind of German Starbucks) and noone told us off. Nice cosy library at the basement of the building, a space of relaxation if you want to read your newspaper calmly (the only thing I missed there was French speaking press; something you would expect normally in a Sofitel... only Le Figaro magazine was available.)As I spent quite some time in the library, one day I stupidly forgot my cashmere scarf. Next morning I went to the reception to ask for it; the girl with a smile delivered it to me immediately! Overall an excellent hotel, perfect service and for a double bed we paid 125 euros per night (no breakfast and I did the booking directly from accor.com some months before). Will stay there undoubtly again.

    Dorint Sofitel, brilliant place to stay

    from

    This Hotel is excellent, very modern, bright and fresh. Rooms above average, super comfortable beds and wonderful shower. Our room had a view over the river and it could be Venice! The Pool/Spa is superb and instead of our usual compulsory hotel swim, we actually used the pool/sauna/steam rooms each day, lovely area to relax in after, candlelight and music, people sleeping!! Yes this hotel is good, will definitely be back.

    Great Location

    from

    We had the weekend rate and we asked for a quiet non-smoking room. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff was very friendly and the location is great. If would stay there again!

    Value-for-money design hotel

    from

    Dorint Sofitel is quickly establishing itself as a great value-for-money destination for well-done new design hotels. The building itself is less spectacular, but the inside has been done very well. Rooms are spacious, fitted with modern design furniture, but are still - in contrast to some other "design hotels" - very comfortable. The location is superb: Right in the city center, minutes from the main shopping areas and the Binnenalster, and situated just besides a canal. We were lucky getting a room on the 8th floor, where you have a view down to the harbour area.

    While other design hotels tend to charge outrageous prices for bad service, this hotel stands out for offering excellent (weekend) rates and a polite service.

    Cool and central hotel

    from

    I have stayed twice at the Dorint am Alten Wall for long weekend breaks.

    The rooms are fairly spacious with a sofa and a desk, decorated in a thoroughly modern German design. At least half the rooms have got a canal view (i.e., no streets and cars in sight), some with a small balcony. The canal cruise boat tours pass right next to your room. Excellent location for shopping in the downtown area; Rathausmarkt, Poststrasse, Neuer Wall and Mönckebergstrasse are 2-3 min. away on foot. The garage though is quite small and fills up quickly- that can be a hassle.

    The spa is on the smaller side yet decent sized; it boasts a very cool design with meandering dark tiles. definitely not your average hotel spa.

    in short: recommendable for: style, location

    Ever so slightly odd ...

    from

    Great location for shops and business. 100m to metro station.

    First Class

    from

    A very modern designer hotel right in the centre of Hamburg. Close to the shops, bars and restaurants.

    The room was great, with nice finishing touches - Only thing missing was a trouser press.

    The leisure area is truely fantastic. With a very unusual pool!

    The service was friendly and efficient.

    I've stayed at several Hamburg hotels including the Kempinski, Radisson and 4 Seasons. The Am Alten Wall is my favourite and where I will return to. There are also some good deals direct from their web site.

    Great looking pool

    from

    Confortable hotel, with a lot of restaurants all around. Rooms and architecture are fine. Another center of interest: the fitness center with a very nice pool. Definitely will use this hotel again (one of my favorite in Hamburg with the Royal Meridien).
