The design of the hotel was good, rooms were great and had wonderful views and we had one of the best schnitzels ever in the bar when we arrived late on Friday night (service was excellent as well).
The location is great, located very close to city center and to the Elbe with a very nice view. We asked for a room in a higher floor and it has been accomplished. Hotel bar on the top floor with a great view to Elbe and harbour.
The spaciousness of the room I was allocated and free access to the Internet
My room was a corner room, so I was surrounded by huge glass windows which were a threat to privacy! Also, perhaps because of the size of the windows, the room tended to be cooler than I would have wished
Excellent innovative, well presented food style in David Restaurant, Great service in groundfloor bar, Excellent facilities
Sushi restaurant and room servise was good.
No wi-fi in the room, just with a cable. Internet low-speed connection.
Fantastic views from the hotel bar on the 20th floor, good facilities for meetings, gym open around the clock..
Wireless internet not available in the entire hotel
It was very comfortable and clean and the staff were great.
The location is right next to the Reeperbahn which sounds good but actually can be a bit seedy
The location to the harbour and city is one of the best features
