Overall found the hotel to be exactly what I wanted it to be, Comfortable quite and yet right in the Heart of Hamburg. This allowed plenty of time to explore the various Christmas markets which were all within walking distance plus other attractions. Would definitely recommend. Never got the opportunity to eat at the hotel as we ate out all...

Sofitel Alter Wall is a nice hotel and very well located. At the beginning, I was really balanced about rating this review: should I put 3 or 2 Stars? Well I have to be fair and put a 3 stars and for several reasons: -Great Location: main shopping street located behind the hotel -Comfortable beds -Great room service (Beef tenderloin...

Fast efficient reception; beautiful room with "special requests" observed; superb bathroom ( tub and separate shower area). Location couldn't be better (Christmas markets and restaurants within short walking distance) Concierge (Soren) very helpful and responsive. Excellent breakfast (pricey, if not booked inclusively)....table clearing, freshly squeezed orange juice and sparkling wine, if that's your thing early in morning; attentive pleasant staff....

We booked this hotel as we have stayed previously in various Sofitels and it is located very close to the Rathaus and the main Christmas market. We had a thoroughly comfortable stay, rather than a luxurious break. As mentioned by previous reviewers on Trip Advisor, breakfast in this Sofitel is a staggering €35 per person. Lucky there are good coffee...

This is a fab hotel for the nice centre part of Hamburg. Right next to the Christmas markets and the town hall. The spa is relaxing and the water warm. Beds are amazing, really amazing. Very impressed, no tea and coffee in the room but everything else was really fab.

A great place to stay, situated very near the main square near the town hall. Similar to the Sofitel in London. The spa is fantastic has a good gym. The bedroom was great as it had also a sofa big bathroom. I would recommend it.

This is my favorite hotel in Hamburg but despite this everything that I will share with you is absolutely objective. The hotel has excellent location, three minutes by walk to the heart of the city, to the street with the fancy brands shops and everything needed for you as a tourist. Since more than 6 years for minimum two times...

Another Sofitel experience and another great review. Having visited a number of other Sofitels around the world, I can confirm the Alter Wall meets high expectations: very central location, great service, comfortable beds and of course style and researched design across the board. I would recommend trying the Spa and also the Magnifique breakfast buffet, super quality in line with...

Hamburg is sophisticated This hotel is located in the AltStadt, walking distance from most sights. Hotel breakfast is a gourmet delight. Staff very pleasant, espacially the very obliging and knowledgeable concierges. Room and bathroom is large, asked and received overlooking the canal. Will recommend staying on our next visit Hamburg.
