Hanseatic city with gateway to the world
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is Germany’s second largest city and the economic and cultural centre of northern Germany. The Port of Hamburg, located on the Elbe River, is one of the largest and most modern ports in Europe and is important for both container and cruise ships. The interesting harbour tours and bus ferries to the musicals on the other side of the river also start from here.
Hamburg’s cityscape is characterised by its close connection to the water and has more bridges than Amsterdam and Venice combined. It is therefore not surprising that many activities take place on or near the water. It is also worth visiting the beautiful riverbeach, where cafés invite you to linger and marvel at the huge container ships or taking a stroll along the Außenalster lake with its magnificent city villas.
The famous Reeperbahn is a popular nightlife and red-light district with a variety of restaurants, pubs and bars. Other highlights of the city worth seeing are the Speicherstadt, the adjacent HafenCity and, of course, Hamburg’s new landmark, the Elbphilharmonie.
The hotel is located in a historic passage right in the heart of Hamburg, which makes it particularly easy to explore the multifaceted city. The stylish and elegant interior makes you feel right at home, providing a fantastic retreat after an exciting city exploration. The modern restaurants and café offer creative Asian and French delicacies. The two bars promise sophisticated drinks, with another bar available for exclusive hire.
The hotel is located close to the city centre and just steps away from the beautiful Alster lake. Furthermore, the “Lange Reihe” street is very popular with both tourists and the gay community and offers many restaurants with outdoor seating to watch the hustle and bustle of the mixed crowd. The hotel combines modernity with intercultural influences from the colonial era. The large rooms represent British elegance and charm and are decorated in warm colors. The restaurant serves fine Italian cuisine and wines. The Campari Lounge on the roof top terrace offers a breathtaking view of the lake.
The hotel’s central location makes it the perfect starting point for walking to the harbour or into the city centre. Formerly a publishing house, it has tried to reflect this charm in its design. With a look into the past, the Ruby Lotti has managed to use leather and wood elements to make the rooms bright and cosy. Italian snacks and tasty drinks can be enjoyed in the bar, which is the central get-together area of the hotel.
