Would go someplace else
our reservation got messed up due to internet double booking. staff tried to call the internet reservation which turned out to be in London, but I had to go online in business section of hotel (and pay for it) and still could not cancel one of the two reservations. staff appeared helpless. air conditioning is unknown in europe, there was a gadget for it in the room on the wall, but useless, did not change temperature in room at all. leaving window open not an option, train station below had allnight workers to repair something, very noisy. location close to downtown is convienient, parking fee a ripoff.
Very Pleasant Stay
Staid there for one night during a recent trip to Hamburg. I was given a room on the 21st floor with great views of the city and the Aussenalster lake. Although the hotel rooms are mostly in need of a makeover, my room was very clean and had nice amenities such as bathrobes, cosmetic products and plenty of magazines. WiFi is provided free of charge. Staff responded quickly and friendly to all my needs and requests. The hotel has a nice fitness area with a work-out room, a swimming pool, a bar and a spacious sundek. Trade Vic's restaurant in the basement offers great tropical cocktails for happy our, and you definitly can't beat the views from the rooftop bar at night. Also the location is very good: The hotel is part of the Hamburg Congress Center, the Dammtor train and subway stations are next door, and both the city center and the Gänsemarkt area are within walkin distance. All in all a very pleasant experience. I have staid there before, and I would definitly stay there again.
Decent hotel, good location
I travelled on business. The hotel and rooms were clean but perhaps could do with an update. Staff friendly and breakfast was good. The hotel gym was OK. Bikes and stepper but no runner. Some weights that could do with a rennovation. Nice pool area though.
Trader Vics bar / restaurant may be cheesey but it provides a welcome change form the usualy hotel places and the food was OK.
The hotel is situated right by the station which is convinient but I found I could hear the trains (20th floor). It didn't disturb my sleep though.
We booked hotel and flights with Expedia 30/12/04 - 04/01/05.
This Hotel was wonderful,all staff were friendly and polite, nothing was too much trouble for them whatever the request, you were made to feel their most important client
The Hotel is situated two minutes from the underground and two minutes from the regional train station and S Bhan.
Hamburg City ticket is good value and we used it a lot to travel further afield. The City bus tour was interesting and informative.
Shops and restuarants within 10 minutes walk from Hotel.
We booked New Year Celebraton Ball directly with the Hotel and it was amazing.
Not really worth it
The bad: This hotel is in need of a major renovation/remodel. The furniture, carpets, tiles in bathrooms are worn as is the bedding (mattresses & pillow) and curtains. Unfortunately,all of this gives you sense of staying in some cheap motel along the interstate in Texas. The internet connections are poor, our room was not wired. They claim wireless hotspots, but only in public areas. beware that there are connection costs starting at 5 Euro/30 min. Service was so so.
The good: Location near the botanical garden and next to one of the train stations, though not the main station. Nice views.
Very nice hotel
We spent two nights on the 27nd floor (!) - with incredible view and high standard of the room and bath. Breakfast was also very good!
We did not hear anything from the disco, but maybe it was not open during our stay.
Convenient and secure parking in the basement. Short walking distance to the city.
I reccommend the hotel warmly.
Not for me
I spent 3 nights at the Radisson SAS just because the Royal Meridien was full, but I did not like this too big and quite old fashioned hotel (pool is awful, in my opinion: ok you can use it to swim ;-) but it is out of fashion). Nevertheless, staff people is kind, service is ok and wifi internet access was free (special offer).
I can highly recommend this hotel. Seven of us arrived early and they had no problems booking us straight into rooms. Fantastic, efficient and friendly staff. Rooms are a fair size, clean and the upper floors have fantastic views over Hamburg. Not the most central hotel for the city centre but well placed for transport links. Nice bars and restaurants. The 'Top of Town' nightclub was fun, if you didn't take it seriously. From here had the most fantastic view of a fireworks display over Hamburg. Would definitely use this hotel again.
This towering hotel is convenient enough, but the whole building feels tired and worn. Rooms are smallish and basic. Hallways are dark and depressing. I'm sure you can find much nicer accomodation in Hamburg.
nice, clean hotel, higher floors have great views over Hamburg, but don´t go too high, because you may hear some noise from the top floor disco, good staff, try breakfast through roomservice (same price as in the restaurant)

... be warm and I could get something to eat. I arrived at the airport about 5.00pm so 3 hours early and walked about getting a few bits as gifts for family and had a coffee and cake, it was a very long wait but at least I was warm and dry. There is an observation deck at the airport so I went to do some plane spotting, well I had my anorak on so fit in well, it was really good actually watching the planes take off and land, the smell of aircraft fuel is something ...

I walked back past the Hbf and went inside for a warm, it was very busy as always, it's the main hub for local trains and national trains such as the ice train also the underground trains stop here too, I have added a few photos of this and a short video, it's a ...

Back at the hotel and got the key for the room I will be staying in for three nights and very comfortable it is too, the bed seems to be as wide as it is long, enormous for one person. I have had a coffee and a shower and watched the BBC world news for an hour and now time for sleep. A good first day for ...
... was firebombed during WW2. On July 23, 1943, a firestorm developed because of the Allied bombing, destroying 8 sq. miles and killing 42,000 people. We stopped at St. Nicholas church, which was briefly the tallest building in the world. It was destroyed in the firestorm and only the steeple remains.
We returned to the ship, went dancing, finished packing and had our last dinner aboard the Symphony.
