The maritime hotel right by the Hamburg harbour
The traditional hotel above the jetties in the quarter of St. Pauli has inspired visitors with its maritime flair and unique view of the harbour and the River Elbe for nearly 40 years. Its 380 rooms – furnished either in a classically Hanseatic fashion or in a modern and elegant style – offer maximum comfort and all amenities of a four-star hotel.
The family-run private hotel is looking back upon a diverse history. It first served as a sailors' hostel in the 19th century and later, among others, as a navy training location. Even now, the classicist building is a treasure trove of Hanseatic sailors' history. You can view many old collector's items throughout the building and immerse yourself in the history of Hamburg and seafaring. The hotel's gastronomy offer is brimming with North German charisma. Enjoy Hamburg classics in the Restaurant Port in front of the backdrop of the harbour, try burgers inspired by the Hansa in the comfortable Hafen Diner or treat yourself to a cool beer in the true sailors' ambience in Willi’s Bierstube.

Excellent stay! Very friendly and helpful staff. Restaurants and waiters were wonderful. The room was very comfortable. We look forward to staying again next time we are in Hamburg.
We were delighted with our stay at your hotel and our room was fantastic .. a marvellous gesture from the young lady who checked us in. It would be nice to have an external lift built from the street to the hotel level, for those like us, who arrive by ship or S Bahn station with heavy luggage... we carried our cases up the steps!
We loved the antique artifacts in the old part of the Hotel and were thrilled to find a wooden trunk from the Royal Navy Navigation School, Portsmouth, England … the city where I was born. If ever you no longer have use for this truck, I would be happy to purchase it from the Hotel.
The Linden Covered Terrace and Service , Location and Views were excellent . Greek Waiter was charming.
The Tower Bar was great and so were the cocktails and the view. The upper deck in the ceiling was rather noisy, especially as it was full of giggling ladies … perhaps you could undertake something to soften the acoustics ? e.g. place Fleece behind the pictures or the wall paper??? It was a pity there is no Bar Food or a wider choice of nibbles, but quite understandable as you do not really have a kitchen up there in the sky. Will definitely recommend the Hotel and hope to come again ourselves . Thank You to the whole Team. Christine and Roland Jaletzke
