Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Elysee Hotel Hamburg
Really Grande Elysee!!!!!
I already knew the "old" Elysee hotel but now, after two years of renovation the new GRAND ELYSEE is a great place. When I checked in, the young but professional and very friendly staff made me feel "at home" at once. I was upgraded to one of the new rooms facing the park. Almost "living" in hotels, I appreciate it a lot, if a room is set up in a way that really everything is in place and easy to find/use. I must mention the bed! The heavenly mattraces make it a place you do not want to leave again.
The restaurants are great as well. I LOVE the Schnitzels in the cosy "Backstube". They are huge!
Also the Elyseum Spa is worth beeing mentioned. The long opening hours make it possible to swim before breakfast, even if you are a "early bird".
This Hotel was excellent,very large rooms and definately five star .Only 5 min walk to centre,pity the city was'nt as good as the hotel,be aware,remember to ask when going on boat and bus tours of the city if the commentry is in English,as English is not spoken that often,Hamburg seems to just accomodate German tourists.
The Grand Elysee is Grand!
We stayed at the Grand Elysee for two nights during our stay in Hamburg for the World Cup. The hotel exceeded our expectations. We did not eat at the hotel during our stay there so I can't comment on the food but all of the staff we encountered were extremely helpful and spoke English.
Our double room was spacious and clean; the bathroom was large with towel warmers which was a treat for us. My husband especially enjoyed the pool and spa area. I appreciated the large bowls of fresh fruit available to guests.
Location was very convenient to the train station and to walk through town.
Insgesamt ein tolles Hotel
Was für ein wunderbares Hotel! Ich war gerade 7 Nächte dort und es war wirklich fast perfekt. Die Betten waren zum Beispiel die bequemsten in denen ich je geschlafen habe. Das Hotel ist sich dieser Stärke bewusst. In den Zimmer sind Blätter, die ihre Vorzüge herausstellen. Aber es stimmt auch, ich habe noch nie so gut geschlafen. Die Zimmer sind alle komfortabel möbliert, sehr modern (aber nicht minimalistisch) und geräumig. Das Frühstück war 5-Sterne-Standard, obwohl es mir im Frühstücksraum ein wenig an Atmosphäre fehlte. Aber, ist Ihnen das wichtig? Dieses ist ein modernes Hotel, keines dieser alten, großen Hotels. Die Bauarbeiten scheinen jetzt auch abgeschlossen zu sein, denn ich habe nichts gesehen, das auf Arbeiten hindeuten würde. Das Hotel hat nun den Namen "Grand Elysee" und es verdient auch diesen Titel. Die Lage ist großartig, egal ob sie in Hamburg geschäftlich oder privat sind. Bis zum Kongresszentrum oder der nächsten U-Bahnstation oder einem Bahnhof brauchen Sie nicht mehr als 3 Minuten zu Fuß. Es ist auch in der Nähe der Parkanlage "Planten un Blomen", welche einfach super ist. Vor allem der Japanische Garten war großartig.
Wie erwartet ein nettes Hotel
Ich fuhr über Ostern von Köln nach Hamburg und habe das Hotel schnell gefunden. Parkservice kostet 15 Euro/Tag, was auf der Homepage nicht erwähnt wird, was aber auch nicht ein Riesenproblem war, denn der Preis war noch ganz okay. Das Zimmer war sauber und gut ausgestattet. Wir bekamen aber ein Zimmer mit zwei Einzelbetten, obwohl wir bei Expedia eines mit Doppelbett gebucht hatten Schönes, ruhiges Viertel, aber auch nicht viel los, außer vielleicht einer Kneipe gleich neben an mit Namen "Turm", das sich in der obersten Etage eines alten Ziegelturms befindet. Sieht so aus wie ein Getreidesilo. Sehr interessant dort. Der Bahnhof ist auch in der Nähe, aber wir sind in den Stadt immer gelaufen (15 Min.). Auf dem Weg dahin kann sich einen riesigen botanischen Garten oder das Museum für Geschichte ansehen. Das Personal im Hotel war sehr höflich, aber das Büfettrestaurant war um 10 Uhr schon voll. Ich bin froh, dass wir uns für Croissants am Bahnhof entschieden haben, denn das Frühstück kostete 18 Euro! Insgesamt ein schöner Aufenthalt und sein Geld wert. Ich kann das Hotel empfehlen.
My partner and I stayed at the Elysee in May on a three day break. Reception were quick, courteous and efficient and spoke excellent English. Our room was nice and spacious - twin beds but are easily pushed together after you've moved the bedside cabinet out of the way! Generally a bright and airy room and good clean bathroom - robes and slippers are provided, complimentary. We didn't take in the spa and the pool was closed at the time, but this didn't hinder our enjoyment. On the couple of occasions we had drinks in the Bourbon Street Cafe we had a very pleasant waiter who was move attentive, a really nice man. The breakfast buffet was good - albeit very German, breads, meats, cheeses etc., although you could get freshly made omlettes to order along with bits of bacon, sausage. Basically, eggs to your liking but we didn't think it was worth 18 euros per person. Fortunately this wasn't an issue for us as breakfast was included within our package. I consider myself to be a hotel snob - this hotel lived up to my expectations with merits! A good place to visit for a beer is the "Turm" bar just next to the hotel. It's some sort of tower from years gone by, converted into a bar. Very pleasant. We also wandered into the University section of the city, just across the way from the hotel. We found a bar which sold chicken wings - clearly aimed at students, but was very tasty and naturally very reasonably priced. Even got a game of 9ball pool in there. Should we ever go back to Hamburg, we would seriously consider this hotel again.
All round great hotel
What a wonderful hotel! I've just returned from staying there for 7 nights, and it really was almost perfect.
Firstly, I must say the beds are absolutely the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The hotel makes much of this fact; in the rooms there are leaflets extolling their virtues, but please believe the hype; I've never had such good sleep. The rooms are comfortably furnished, quite modern (but not minimalist), and spacious.
The hotel breakfast was typically 5* standard, although I did think the breakfast room lacked just a little atmosphere. But then, how important is that to you? This is a modern hotel, not one of the old grand ones. Incidentally the hotel works now appear to have finished; I could find no evidence of any work going on. The hotel has now been rebranded the 'Grand Elysee', and it deserves that title.
The location is great, if you're in Hamburg on business or leisure. It's no more than a 3 minute walk to the congress centre, or to the local underground or mainline rail station. It's also very close to the 'Planten un blomen' gardens which are absolutely beautiful; the Japanese garden in particular was stunning.
Nice Hotel, as expected
I drove to Hamburg from Cologne over Easter, and found the Hotel easily. Valet parking for your car costs 15 Euro p/day, not noted on their Homepage, but not a problem because this is a competitive price. The room was clean and well equipped, although we got two single beds even though we booked a double on expedia.de. Nice quiet neighborhood, but not really anything interesting close, except a bar right next store called 'Turm', which is at the top of an old brick tower, sort of like a corn silo. Interesting place.
The train station is close, but we walked into the city (15 min). On the way there you can rest in the huge botanical gardens, and visit the Hamburg History (Geschichte) Museum.
Staff at the Hotel were polite and spoke good English, but the buffet breakfast restaurant was full at 10 AM. I am glad we chose to eat croissants at the train station, the buffet cost 18 Euros!
All in all a nice experience, and value for money. I recommend the hotel.
Just off from Germany, and this hotel is definitely recommended, at least for a business traveller. Before going I was a bit concerned having read that the hotel is undergoing some renovations. Well, maybe I was lucky with the room, or it was too cold for construction, there was no noise at all at night or during the day.
Rooms are very good size, nice, modern, very clean, with all the business amenities, except for a shower cap. On the negative side the mattresses are a bit hard for my taste, and the room (and the whole hotel for this matter) will not impress those looking for "character" or particular fancy styling.
Service was good, even though as often the case in continental Europe, it lacks the Anglo-Saxon "polish", and language can sometimes be an issue in the restaurants.
Dining proved to be the biggest suprise. Both restaurants and the cafe are great; offer varying degree of prices. Seem to be popular with well-heeled locals.
The location is convenient: not far from the airport and a 10 minute walk form one of the main Hamburg trains stations. Located in a very nice posh residential area, not far from the centre.
Definitely recommended, and a good value.
Das ist Sehr Gut!!
I booked this hotel on the internet for would you believe a place for 6 guys to stay at during a stag weekend.
Well the hotel was 5 star and run with all the sort of German efficency you would expect. Rooms were large and comfortable, THe buffet breakfast was out of this world, and their is a nice area to sit outside in Summer to have breakfast.
For the added " experience" why not indulge in the health spa downstairs, where " going native" ie..stripping off for the sauna is de rigeur!!, as we all found out. In fact it seems the Germans positively encourage it.
The hotel is a short walk to the Railway Station, so that was good and we watched hot air baloons take off from the park behind the hotel.
If you go to Hamburg check out the tv tower, it has a lovely revolving restaraunt up top.

... ever before, our luggage was also there so we headed off to pick up our Alamo rental car. Even that was a cinch. Not even 15 minutes and we had our jeep loaded and headed off to Cape Coral. But alas not everything was easy. We needed over an hour to reach Alligator Alley. The I-75 North was one huge traffic jam which caused us to travel an extra hour. We finally arrived in Cape Coral at 7:30 pm local time. We were so exhausted we headed straight for our beds. No travel pics ...
After some online reconnaissance we ventured into the city today for a look around. We drove to a local train station and had no trouble buying day passes from a vending machine for €6 each. Parking was a little drama - the 'park n ride' we drove into closed at 9pm and there was a chance we'd be back later than that. So we parked on the street and stressed about getting a ticket (no, thankfully). Trains were comfortable, clean and convenient, and ran ...
The Federal Republic of Germany has 16 states (including the city-states of Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen) and they include districts and then thousands of municipalities. Ivonne and Christiaen Bluecher's house is in the municipality of Henstedt-Ulzburg (pop. 28,000) within the state of Schleswig-Holstein. Their house is about a 30-minute drive north of ...
... Then on to the cruise boat, which was rather fun, sailing idly by as Hamburgans paddled, sailed, sun-baked and generally enjoyed the lakes and their shores on a beautiful sunny summer’s day. We started off in the Binnenalster lake, sailed past the huge fountain and under the rail and road bridge into the Outer Alster lake. The cruise itself was about 90 minutes, up the river and into the canals, passing coxed fours, single sculls, and dragon boats. Apparently ...
... Lara, one of lenas friends who I've met before as she also was an exchange student at Henderson hight school when Lena was there! We walked back to her flat and cooked up some dinner and then had a few drinks on the balcony enjoying the night air. Felt good to relax after what seemed like a crazy day of rushing around! Tomorrow is a jam packed day with the weather permitting, so fingers crossed it's a nice ...
