This is a fab hotel for the nice centre part of Hamburg. Right next to the Christmas markets and the town hall. The spa is relaxing and the water warm. Beds are amazing, really amazing. Very impressed, no tea and coffee in the room but everything else was really fab.

A great place to stay, situated very near the main square near the town hall. Similar to the Sofitel in London. The spa is fantastic has a good gym. The bedroom was great as it had also a sofa big bathroom. I would recommend it.

This is my favorite hotel in Hamburg but despite this everything that I will share with you is absolutely objective. The hotel has excellent location, three minutes by walk to the heart of the city, to the street with the fancy brands shops and everything needed for you as a tourist. Since more than 6 years for minimum two times... More

Another Sofitel experience and another great review. Having visited a number of other Sofitels around the world, I can confirm the Alter Wall meets high expectations: very central location, great service, comfortable beds and of course style and researched design across the board. I would recommend trying the Spa and also the Magnifique breakfast buffet, super quality in line with... More

Hamburg is sophisticated This hotel is located in the AltStadt, walking distance from most sights. Hotel breakfast is a gourmet delight. Staff very pleasant, espacially the very obliging and knowledgeable concierges. Room and bathroom is large, asked and received overlooking the canal. Will recommend staying on our next visit Hamburg.

Have high expectations when booking a Sofitel. Just like in Berlin Sofitel last year, we are very happy with service, quality and friendliness. Particularly impressed by service to our dog, I must say. Important detail for judging the overall impression. We normally use Novotel, but once or twice a year, we offer ourselves the luxury of Sofitel

Rooms are well equipped and stylish. Beds are wonderful, and breakfast is second to none compared to any of the hotels i have stayed at in Hamburg (or Europe for that matter). Do have a warning though. If you try it once, you want to come back.

This hotel is perfectly situated for the best restaurants, city sights and shopping in Hamburg. This is a really under-rated city - there's lots to see and we'll certainly return. Also, the bed in our room was probably the most comfortable we've ever slept in! Only one negative....the price that Sofitel charges for breakfast. The price was so high here... More
