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.
