Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Royal Meridien Hotel

Beautiful Hamburg

from Dan_chilly
What a hotel! I managed to get a fantastic deal in this hotel for the weekend in early December. As a travel agent, I've stayed in some great hotels worldwide, but this has to be one of the best. Rooms are stunning, very hi-tech, plasma tv's etc, plus a huge bathroom with deep bathtub and walk-in shower (and what a shower). Extremely comfortable beds too. Great location, right on the banks of the Aussen Alster lake, great for a walk to blow the cobwebs away. The hotel also provides complimentary cruises on the lake. Just a 10 minute walk from the city centre and main train/bus stations. Would definitely recommend this hotel, especially during December to experience the Christmas markets, something Germany is famous for (and rightly so). Hamburg is a stunning city, and very much underrated.

All in all, a fantastic hotel, and beautiful city. 10 out of 10. Go there. Now.

Definitely an Experience

from sparky1978
The hotel was beautiful and definitely an experience. The best part were the wonderful beds and the amazing shower....amazing! The staff was very friendly, although a language barrier since I didn't speak any German and some didn't speak English, which was a surprise at a hotel. However beware of drink prices if you are on a budget you can spend almost 12 euros on a martini and 8 euros for wine. The spa is nice and they have an attendent offering robes and towels upon arrival. The cardio room is limted and extremely hot. GREAT location for those wanting something close to everything and a nice walk anywhere you need to go. Great stay but as expected for a luxury hotel.

Perfect Spot / Great Hotel

from London929
The Le Meridien is located at a busy street at the Alster Lake.
I did not pay extra to face the lake (and the road) but enjoyed a quiet room towards St Georg. Bathroom was very spacious and Minibar is complimentary (limited choice). The room was modern and functional. Did not use any of the facilities but they have a great panorama restaurant on the top floor. The main station is just 10Min walk away and in 15 Min you are in the city center. You have coffee shops et just 5 Min away in the -Lange Reihe- street.


from Papakat
Everything was above expectation. Rooms were above excellent. Shower was an experience. Food was excellent.

Outstanding Hotel - Great Location

from frankll1a
I have stayed at the Le Meridian 3 times over the last 9 months - primarily because Hamburg is my gateway back to the Us & I need a hotel for 2-3 days to get low airline fares. The hotel rooms are phenominal (HUGE King bed, flat screen TV, shower, bath tub, high speed internet), the staff are very friendly - made dinner reservations - got show tickets - made tour recommendations, and the location is within walking distance of a great lake, the downtown shopping & the train station... The only issue is the restaurant... it is very overpriced - but the concierge will take care of you!!


from fabgourmet
Perhaps the finest hotel I have ever stayed at. I can only agree with the below reviews but I really wanted to post some photos of our gorgeous room as no other reviews has done so. The staff of this hotel shall be commended for both their friendliness and professionalism. Chic and sleek interiors to rooms and a truly top-rate pool and health center enhanced our experience.

Also, we were lucky enough to be given a room on the top floor with a huge private balcony. I'm not sure why, perhaps my hotel karma was smiling upon us that day. Looking back, I think I did try to smile at the pleasant lady at check in. Who knows? Actually, it is more likely that they were nearly full for the five evenings we were guests and perhaps had to do with our longer reservation (many other guests were coming only for one or two evenings around New Year's). While the late December weather was not so that we could take full advantage of this tremendous balcony, it was still a delightful surprise amenity and we did venture outdoors from time to time to gaze at the skyline of the city.

Also, we really loved having a doorbell to our room, whenever the maid or someone from the hotel arrived, instead of banging loudly they merely rang our bell. Divine! Not to mention that fab free minibar!

We are already looking forward to next New Year's in Hamburg and it is a given that we will be returning to this LeMeridien. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we receive as pleasant a room as last year!


from JonnyT22
Reason alone to visit Hamburg in the biting cold of winter. We have booked the Le Meridien Vienna for our honeymoon as a direct result of our enjoyable stay here.

Just great

from Peipi
I really liked this hotel.
The rooms are amazing (if you are on the 'Alster' side, there is also a really nice view).
The service is absolutely great.
The restaurant Le Ciel is one of the hidden gems in Hamburg: Great views, great service, great food.

It`s great

from WolfgangLeist
There are already a lot of reviews and they are true - the hotel is great. Great Location, great rooms.

There was only one thing that I really coudn`t understand. I ordered breakfast in my room and ordered also "Pfannkuchen" (pancake(s)). I really got 1 small pancake - that was it. For 7,50 Euro (10 $). The most expensive pancake I ever had.

Christmas markets a great time to visit

from caroline427
Had a fabulous time in the Meridien Royal , It excelled, even better then its sister in Stuttgart. A party of 8 travelled for my 50th Birthday the rooms we were allocated exceeded our expectations the light theme of the rooms were very calming. The breakfast, with a view outstanding, the staff were very tolerant of our frequent excusions in the glass lifts that allowed us spectacular views of the lake. As my daughter is living locally for a year I hope it will allow us to visit again just to check that standards have not dropped. Expect continental nudity in the sauna and steam room, if your fine with that great. An easy walk to all the local attractions I love Germany!.

Top Local Tips for Hamburg

Reeperbahn Would recommend not going. Hamburg has other parts of the city that are fun to party at with a classier & better looking clientele.

Fish head to Am Quai for the best fish in town

Rathaus If you want to have a glimpse of the unique history of this city , make sure to visit the Rathaus.
