Historical Traveler Reviews The Madison Hamburg
Have just stayed at this hotel, visiting Hamburg for its wonderful Xmas atmosphere and Xmas Markets. The hotel is located within 15 mins walk of the Rathaus, where the main shopping area is. There are also good restaurants close by . The rooms are clean, spacious and come with a kitchenette which is good to have. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone and would definately stay here again.
Acabamos de alojarnos en este hotel durante nuestra visita por Hamburgo y su maravilloso ambiente navideño y las tiendas navideñas. Está ubicado a un paseo de 15 minutos del Rathaus, la principal zona de tiendas. También hay buenos restaurantes en la zona. La habitación era espaciosa, limpia y venía equipada con una pequeña cocina que siempre es útil tener. Ciertamente recomiendo este hotel a cualquier y, seguro que vuelvo.
Perfect hotel room? Almost!
Well the reviews on Tripadvisor aren't wrong! My partner and I stayed in Hamburg over one of the busiest weekends of the year when a large conference and Oktoberfest overlapped and accommodation in the city was pricey, however the Madison's rates were well in the range that is usually offered by the hotel and therefore offered a fantasic deal. Booking direct via the hotel's website was quick and easy. On arrival I was greeted pleasantly and checked in quickly. The hotel is modern and stylish, the website gives an accurate reflection of the reality! My requests for a quiet room on a high floor were confirmed which is a refreshing change as booking requests are so often ignored! On entering the room I knew that we had chosen the right place. A large, light room with all the facilities you would expect (comfortable bed, space to work, excellent air-conditioning) and some you wouldn't (a spotless kitchenette area and a truly spacious bathroom). The hotel's owner has aimed to create the perfect hotel room...I reckon she's pretty much nailed it, the only niggle I had was the fact that you couldn't adjust the lighting, it would have been nice to have dimmed the lights in the late evening. Location wise the hotel is an easy, 10 minute walk into the city centre with the Reeperbahn about 25 minute walk away or a short bus ride. I would absolutely recommend this hotel and if I ever find myself visiting Hamburg again I won't even look for somewhere else to stay - I'll just go straight to the Madison.
Wenn Hamburg, dann Madison.
Sowohl für den privaten Besuch als auch für den business trip bietet das Hotel die optimale Unterbringung. Sehr angenehmes Ambiente, sehr gute Lage an der Station Baumwall, zum Hafen und zum Michel nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuss, nettes Personal und grosse, sehr ansprechende Zimmer mit guten Betten. Empfehlung für ein Wochenende zu Zweit sind die Hampton Lofts. 4 Sterne geht es kaum besser.
Surpassed even the amazing reviews
We found this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and, once again, we were not disappointed. Imaginative, spotlessly clean, modern, stylish, every attention to detail, friendly, helpful, bright, superb breakfasts (and evening meals). But there was also a special something we've not experienced in any hotel before. It really felt like somewhere we could have stayed and lived in forever. The room (and it was only one of the cheaper ones) was spacious, comfortable, light, bright and with every possible amenity. We felt completely at home and were very reluctant to leave. It's situated a 5 minute walk from a convenient SBahn route, 2 stops to the Rathaus in one direction and 1 stop to the harbour in the other. Also only a few minutes walk to St Michaelis Church with amazing views of the city from it's tower. Although the immediate area of the hotel was largely a business area, it felt safe to walk back to at any time of day or night. This would not have been true of many other areas of the city centre. We would not stay anywhere else in Hamburg.
The perfect hotel room?
The owner is said to have been on a mission to design the perfect hotel room. It seems she succeeded. Clean, spacious, supremely well-planned and comfortable. Great bathrooms also. Having a laundry room on each floor might be off-putting to some but to us was a huge bonus. Even as someone who tends to stay in top-end premises (i.e. who wouldn't typically launder their own underwear!) I thought this place was excellent. Good breakfast, with friendly waiters. Efficient reception staff. Location pretty good also.
Stayed here several times, keep coming back
we have stayed at the madison several times and have yet to encounter the first inconvenience. the staff goes out of their way to make every stay smooth and flawless.
requests for little extras are no problem at all and everything will be in top condition upon arrival. the suites are spaceous, light and airy, clean and modern with a little kitchenette that includes a fridge, coffee making ammenities and a small stovetop - should one feel like doing a little cooking. pots, dishes and silverware are provided as well. a parking garage is located below the hotel. a lovely spa is free to use for hotel guests. room service is top. the hotel's location is just a couple of minutes walk from the waterfront - set back just far enough forquiet but close enough for convenience. i cannot say enough. i would recommend the place to anyone.
Almost flawless stay
This is a very well-run and nicely appointed place. It is quite close to the Baumwell station of the U-Bahn from which major Hamburg attractions can easily be reached. Close by is the famous St. Michael's Church whose regular chiming, I found comforting and not at all disturbing. I only had breakfast at the restaurant so can't say much other than that meal was apleasant smorgasbord of cold meats, fish, cheese and the ubiquitous hard rolls. Internet service is available at a reasonable rate. There are many nice Portuguese restaurants a few minutes walk away and the famed Fisschmarket is a nice waterfront stroll of about 12-15 minutes. All in all, a great place to stay though not inexpensive.
Very nice hotel, excellent rooms and service. Would recommend it!

... overwhelming in terms of its animation and detail. I mean, they had over 225,000 figures, 230,000 trees and some multiple thousand vehicles along with lights and light effects everywhere. They had the overhead lighting on a 24 hour clock that cycled about every 15 minutes, so you could watch the sun rise, experience daylight, then watch the sun set and be night time.

We ended up on the canals of the Alster Ricer. As we had half an hour to wait we walked over to the Apple Store across the road for a look. Everyone inside seemed to be standing around the store in a circle cheering and clapping, and as we knew there were no releases imminent we wondered why. At intervals they all ...

Went to see where they repair. Lufthansa and customer plans. Couldn't take pictures inside, but neat facility. Got up close to 747 being overhauled.

2015 is off to a great start, and we can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds for us. For now, I'm going to go back to enjoying my Franzbrötchen but will be back soon with some more of our European adventures!
