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...

This is a beatiful modern hotel with spacious rooms en suite and very well equipped with good strong wifi, tv, blue tooth, iPod port etc. The bar is really good, great service and comfortable for an evening drink. The restraint is also excellent. Very well appointed for instant acces to town and the fantastic rail service. My only gripe is,...

The hotel is good and located in the downtown of Hamburg. Anyway comparing to my previous stay at Sofitel in Singapore, there are still a lot if things to upgrade technically. I was disappointed by the bath absence, and no tooth brush and paste could be found there, unlike Singaporean Sofitel. But anyway the stay was good. Thanks to the...

Well, the hotel is quite ok. The location too. The internet is very bad if you have business calls and the prices are too high for what you get . Yes, the hotel has a nice bar and restaurant, where the service is quite well. For me for example the food was not that good. If I would give a...

I had a one night stay in the Sofitel in Hamburg. As usual for the Sofitel brand, welcome and overall quality is outstanding. The Sofitel Hamburg makes no exception here. The rooms are nice and comfortable. Breakfast is great and tasty. Wide choice. Location is very central and you can get around in the city centre easily. Main public transport...

Modern hôtel in the heart of Hamburg, nice rooms, very good beds. The cocktail bar is great with an impressive offering. Could be also a no hotel to stay for a private trip. Welcoming and smiling staff.

Seriously if I want to wait for check-in and check-out more than 10 min each I rather stay at a cheap Motel One with a much nicer atmosphere... The bed is great - but you will find no complimentary coffee nor tea in your room - and this although France has superb tea companies like Mariage Freres etc... the service...
