From a grand hotel overlooking the Alster lake to a boutique hotel in a peaceful location or an apartment hotel: anyone seeking a place to stay in Hamburg can choose from a wide range of accommodation types. A total of 371 hotels throughout the Hanseatic city offer visitors a real home from home. In 2015, around 6.3 million guests enjoyed the city’s hospitality; this considerable success is serving as an incentive to Hamburg’s hotel industry, with 16 new hotels set to open in the city in 2017. Particularly to mention is brand-new five star hotel “The Westin Hamburg” located in the Elbphilharmonie. Opened in January 2017, this spectacular new landmark of Hamburg hosts four concert halls, designed by world-famous acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, aiming to be among the world’s best concert halls.
As Germany’s “gateway to the world”, Hamburg has traditionally prided itself on providing its international guests with outstanding accommodation and excellent services. The city’s hotels offer not only multilingual reception and guest services staff as a matter of course, but also give equal consideration to the cultural and religious customs of their international visitors.
