joining the free walking tour – and so we did … for about 10
minutes. I was feeling pretty ****** and couldn't be bothered walking
around for 3.5 hours, listening to the history of Hamburg (as
interesting as it may be). So we ditched the group and walked around
the shops for a couple of hours, getting lunch at the supermarket. ...
We were going to do the free guided city tour, but when we arrived we would have been the only ones so we didn't go. Since the guides all work off tips, we didn't want to feel obligated to have to pay them more than we would have normally. So we decided to do our own city tour and just go to the places they go. The first stop was St. Petri Church, which was cool. Not the best church we've seen, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
We stayed 2 nights Thursday 1 December and Friday 2 December 2005. This was a special anniversary stay. It is a plush hotel situated in a grand old building (high ceilings, wide corridors and staircases) overlooking the smaller of the two lakes. It is at right angles to Jungfernstieg street - one of Hamburg luxury shopping streets. It is an hotel where every service can be provided and the customer need do nothing. So there are no ironing boards, no in-room kettles, and boots can be left outside the room for polishing. Our room [the cheapest on Expedia at EUR 205] was nonetheless large with 2 very comfortable beds and lightweight but warm duvets. The white tiled bathroom was equally large, with bath and separate shower cabinet. There was even a small walk in clothes cupboard room. Toiletries were plentiful [though as all containers were the same colour it was not easy to tell what each held]. The shower cabinet had doors which opened out, so flooded the floor when opened. The room had elaborate lighting switches inc several master switches so all lights could be extinguished together from several points in the room. The heating system worked fine but the air-conditioning had failed; so we let in the winter air by opening the window [the maintenance man had seemingly not understood what we said was wrong]. Breakfast cost EUR 24 each. partly buffet style with good fruits, cheeses, fish and cold meats. Juices and coffee were served in person. On the first morning we thought service was rather disorganised as the staff appeared to have very compartmentalised jobs and no one came out of the kitchen to clear away mounting piles of dirty crockery. The hotel has only one PC in a business centre (though rooms have Internet connections) and no swimming pool (though the top floor has an elaborate and expensive spa). The hotel was able for me to go to Park Hyatt 10 minutes walk away where a day pass to pool and elaborate leisure facilities costs EUR 30. Overall, this was a pampering stay but it comes at a price [about EUR 250 per night including breakfast for 2] and you could easily pay very much more.
Fantastic hotel which I highly recommend. It's within walking distance of many upscale shops along with numerous restaurants and case options. There are a number of dining options in the hotel as well. The Deli was reasonably priced and the Grill was more expensive, but worth it. Service across the board was prompt. There's a business center where you can check your email for free, and the connection isn't too bad either. The rooms are a nice size, larger than what I typically would expect for a European hotel. Nice touches in the rooms included buttons to ring for a butler or a maid, towel warmer and in room safe. The spa was pricey, but fantastic. There's also a small gym area within the spa which has some free weights, nautilus weights and cardio machines. If you like living well, this is a great hotel to choose. Can't beat the location, right across the street from the lake!
In November 2004 I spent several days at this hotel, with my husband and another couple.
Just returned from 2 nights at this hotel - lives up to its 5 star reputation. Booked a bed and breakfast prepaid rate through a web site I have used a few times (abahotels) which I have found very good for Germany. Despite the (relatively) cheap rate considering the quality of the hotel, was upgraded to a junior suite on arrival on a fully refurbished floor (2nd) - beautiful room with the only thing missing being a view of the Alster lake (but then I didn't pay for that either!!).
I have stayed in this hotel many times since switching from the Park Hyatt (also a great hotel) - this is a fantastic hotel. Has a unique charm; sophisticated yet a starting to get a little dingy around the edges. From all my travels across Europe this is definitely one of the best hotels to stay - excellent service.
Loved the Vier Jahreszeiten, and I stay in this hotel category quite frequently and am not always impressed. Stayed for only one night (unfortunately, due to my schedule) in October, 2004. Had a gorgeous room on a high floor overlooking the lake. My many special dietary and other requests were scrupulously taken care of with a helpful, efficient attitude. Overall, a brisk, attentive, courteous service was manifest everywhere, which in the off-season in a country in recession cannot always be taken for granted. I found the service and the facilities of a higher quality than the Atlantic, its closest competitor in Hamburg, where I stayed last year. I arranged for a personal trainer to take me on a jog around the lake and the spa manager did it personally. Both he and the spa facilities were excellent, and I've seen quite a few, although one minus is the spa has no pool. The spa is also available to non-residents for day use, but in this case that was not the negative it usually is - the spa was not at all crowded. The breakfast, which was included in the room rate, was better than the average in the five star category - I had the spa breakfast, which in many fine hotels is still bland and boring, but they made it delectable. The location is perfect for shopping and socializing, as it is in the nicest area of Hamburg. Overall, a lot of thought goes into the service there and its obvious. Easily one of my Top 5 favorite hotels in Northern Europe. Will be sure to stay longer next time.
Ever so charming
one of the best european Grand Hotels with an impressive ambience and outstanding service
Conviniently located in city. Try to book room with "Alster view" (lake)!!
