Grand Elysee Hotel Hamburg
Travel Blogs from Hamburg
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 ...

Another great day to talk about and share. This morning we met Wiebe Retschlag, MAP 2, during breakfast together with Robina.

The day in Hamburg began with a picturesque walk to the offices. I was tempted to take pictures of every building we passed and couldn’t believe the views from the office windows! The first meeting was with Katrin Schütt in travel technology support. Katrin shared with us an in-depth look at travel technology and the many levels, roles, and responsibilities that exist within. Next we met with Stephan Baars, Global CFO. We briefly met Stephan in the Atlanta ...

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.
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.
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.
What a wonderful hotel! I've just returned from staying there for 7 nights, and it really was almost perfect.
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.
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.
