10 Best Hotels in Hamburg

Loved by Guests Collection in Hamburg

The best hotels in Hamburg put you next to the sights and action in Germany’s second largest city. For a room that offers some of the city’s best views, choosing a hotel around the Binnenalster (Inner Alster Lake) or the Port of Hamburg is a great idea, granting you iconic cityscapes or skylines of the bustling harbour. 

The most popular Hamburg hotels come in a good variety. Five-star and international chains in the city centre offer uncompromising luxuries, while budget options in laidback neighbourhoods such as St. Pauli or the old town of Altstadt allow you to easily explore some of Hamburg’s iconic landmarks like Rathausmarkt townhall and St. Michael’s Church.
