Stylish and French-Influenced Modern German Hotel

Chic Five-Star Waterfront Hotel in Hamburg

The Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall is an extremely popular five-star hotel built on the canals of Hamburg, Germany. Like many top-tier hotels in the canal downtown area, it is within walking distance of City Hall and the Monkebergstrasse shopping street. The beloved St. Michaelis Church is less than a mile away. This stunning church has a tall clock tower and beautiful interior and is a must-see for first-time travelers to Hamburg.

Turkish Baths at On-site Seagull Spa

Not only is the Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall a prime example of luxury, but it offers a rare feature among hotels in any category: a spa that accepts children. The Seagull Spa accepts children under 12 years old from 10 AM to 12 PM and from 2 PM to 4 PM daily, so you can take your well-behaved children to a place that caters to them. While other hotels are content to help you get away from your children for a surcharge, this Accor brand hotel is a place to bond with your kids while enjoying luxurious treatments.

To dine on site, guests should try Ticino, a dinner-only restaurant serving fusion dishes inspired by cultures all over the world. If you're interested in French food, Bistro du Sofitel is open weekdays for lunch. There's also a café, lounge, and buffet breakfast every morning from 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM, and room service is available 24 hours a day.

Choose Rooms Facing the City or Canal

Once guests get to their modern, elegantly designed room, dock an iPod to play some music, put on a complimentary bathrobe and twist open some Evian water, it becomes clear what a deal this hotel is. The marble bathrooms have separate showers and tubs, a step above the typical shower/tub combination. Wi-Fi is free in public areas and rooms, and wired internet is also available for a small fee.

The Bottom Line

If you can't get a good room and flight combination or save money in some other way, there are plenty of cheaper hotels away from the canal area. There are a handful of five-star hotels like the Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall and the Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg. Choosing the right one can be tricky, but the kid-friendly spa means the Sofitel is a great spot for families seeking an upscale experience in a beautiful and modern environment.
