Palatial, turn-of-the-century classic on Alster Lake with a two-Michelin-star restaurant and a top spa

The Lowdown

Originally a grand estate on the banks of Alster Lake in the heart of Hamburg, under Fairmount, this hotel has undergone modern developments from air-conditioning (only added in 2009) to WiFi access throughout. Beside the traditionally opulent rooms and suites, most of which face the lake and some of which are flanked by balconies, the array of dining options serves as the jewel in the property’s crown. Restaurant Haerlin has earned two Michelin stars and 18 points Gault Millau for Christoph Ruffers’ French and Mediterranean cuisine, while Doc Cheng’s (with 14 points GM) fuses European and Asian cuisines amid Shanghai-in-the-1920s decor.

In the Area

It’s not often one can stay lakeside in a major city. Venturing beyond the Alster, guests may visit Hamburg’s city hall, Rathaus, which also happens to be its architectural opus, surrounded by upscale shops and charming streets. After fireside afternoon tea in the hotel lobby at Wohnhalle, tea enthusiasts can venture to the Messmer Momentum teahouse and tea museum situated on Hamburg’s once-major port of tea for Europe. Continue on the maritime trail by visiting giant Hamburg Harbor and then come nightfall, the Reeperbahn red light district makes a worthy field trip for those seeking a nightlife contrast to the elegant hotel.

Staff is discriminating or being tipped off

The room was good, the staff in your lounge a HORROR !
We sat down on Saturday morning around 10:30 h. in the lounge to have a coffee and a tea.
A table next to us was occupied with 4 gentlemen who drank a glass of wine.
Then the waitress came up to us, if we would mind to sit somewhere else because these gentlemen
had a meeting. We stood up and I told the waitress that we would move but did not think , that this was correct. In matter of fact we left !! I had enough of this stuck-up attitude !
Please note: 1) we were guest in your hotel 2) The lounge is a public area 3) If this meeting is so important
and the gentlemen did not want to be overheard or something, they should have a rent a meeting-room !
I had meetings all my life and if it was really important I would not sit down in a public lounge.

I guess the waitress has been tipped big time !!
In the evening we had a bottle of champagne , the young waiter had a very bad mood.
Overall -- This Hotel is a lot of hot air !!

Just amazing!

Stayed here for 2 nights during Easter and I had a wonderful experience. Everything was acutely perfect. The room was spotless, very clean, nice design, comfy beds.
I liked all the staff, from front desk, to the bartenders to the breakfast hostess. We really enjoyed the roof top bar. It was a very relaxing place to have a glass of champagne/beer.
The breakfast was also superb, fresh choices and a very good atmosphere. The guy that served us was super professional.
Would love to come back sometime.

Perfect In Every Way!

We were thoroughly impressed with our stay at the Vier Jahreszeiten, and couldn't wait to sing its praises! It has the perfect combination of old world elegance and modern amenities that made for the perfect stay. We had a beautiful, luxuriously appointed suite overlooking the lake, a generous welcome gift, enjoyed sumptuous breakfast buffets in its elegant dining room, and the breezes on the roof top deck. The Concierge's dining recommendations were spot on! Service was excellent and staff was both friendly and efficient. Perfect on all counts!
