Where to stay in Hamburg
As expected from a city that has been welcoming visitors for centuries, the German city of Hamburg has every kind of accommodation from dormitories and hostels to luxury boutique and high-end five-star hotels.
The city itself is divided into seven districts with the most popular for visitors being Hamburg Mitte, which is built along the River Elbe and includes the busy harbor, shopping streets and the historic buildings of the Altstadt (old town). Staying within the confines of the Mitte district will have you close to the nightlife and entertainment of St Pauli and St Georg, the dining options of Neustadt and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Speicherstadt.
Hamburg is another city that’s easy to get around thanks to a network of regional trains, buses, harbour ferries and rapid transit vehicles. There are also day passes and tourist cards available to help make your journey more enjoyable – and even allow card holders discount on certain tourist attractions. Renting a car in Hamburg is also an option.
Hotels in Hamburg Mitte
A luxurious five-star hotel in a convenient location in the city center, the Park Hyatt features two restaurants, an indoor swimming pool and a fitness center. The location means you will be spoiled for choice with the Mönckebergstrasse shopping promenade on the doorstep and just a short walk from important tourist attractions like the Alster lake, the St. Pauli Quarter and the Harbour warehouse district.
A less expensive choice of hotel in the city center is the four-star Hotel Senator, also within walking distance of the Alster lake, shopping-malls and the central railway station. Some rooms have the options of water beds, WIFI is provided and the hotel also boasts its own winter garden.
A less expensive option in Hamburg Mitte, this three-star hotel is housed in a 19th century villa and provides clean and attractive budget accommodation with all the modern amenities expected by international tourists. The hotel is just a short walk from the city’s main train and bus stations, while other attractions such as the Kunsthalle, Alster lake and the Jungfernstieg shopping street are also within walking distance.

I had one of the best weekend breaks I’ve ever had in Hamburg. It has a similar set up to London where it has different districts for different purposes. A nightlife district, shopping district, tourist and attractions the list goes on. It really does cater to all your needs whatever the reason is for you going away. Whether it’s to go out and drink, if you’re a foodie, if you live shopping, if you live arts and culture it has it all. Hamburg is now my favourite city I’ve visited will definitely be returning.
Great city, with a stunning arhitecture and amazing food. It was a pleasure to discover this beautiful city. Must see: The Opera House- it's just amazing, and the view on top...breathtaking.
Hamburg is not my favorite city in Europe. Perhaps I am being too hard on it by comparing it to the likes of Amsterdam, Vienna, Budapest, etc. But, it's important to know before booking a trip. Things you can get out of Hamburg: serious nightlife (if you're looking for a backdrop for your stag getaway, Hamburg is for you), *some* greenery/pretty architecture (although, in my opinion, other cities fare far better), good location to travel to Benelux or other German cities (if you are backpacking, you could stop by for a quick visit). I apologize if this sounds harsh, but those are probably the best qualities. Things you might not get from Hamburg: the same sense of European splendor that you may get from other cities, cleanliness (this city is not as clean as other cities in Europe), peace and quiet in the evening (see note on nightlife), greenery/canals (at least, not as much as other cities). If it sounds like I am saying that Hamburg is a sub-par Amsterdam or some other great European city, that's probably because I am. Not my favorite. But-maybe it's your gem!
Hamburg is one of my favorite cities in Germany. Beautiful architecture, nice people and plenty of really good restaurants.
