Sofitel Alter Wall – Hamburg


Hotelchain: Sofitel
Location: Hamburg – Germany
Classification: 5 star hotel


The Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall is a modern five star hotel in the heart of Hamburg. I have great experiences with Sofitel and had to try this one too, of course!

The lobby area is pretty large with a lot of natural day light. The reception staff made us feel welcome and were very professional explaining everything we needed to know about the hotel and facilities. While our room wasn’t ready yet when we arrived, I spend a little time in the lobby area and was pretty fascinated with how many staff members the hotel has.


We stayed in a large deluxe room. The design looking room are very comfortable and our room had a great couch and two separate beds. The marble bath room had separate walk-in shower and tub. I really liked the Bose sound system and used it a lot during my stay. Of course, as usually at Sofitel, the MyBeds are like heaven! I found the room a little bit more cozy at night as the lights were on and it had this cosy and relaxing atmosphere.

I am in love with the spa area of the Sofitel Hamburg Alter Wall. The place is just beautiful and has one of the most beautiful indoor pool I have seen anywhere! It is just stunning… While the hotel was nearly fully booked, it never was too crowded. The water temperature was excellent – not too cold, not too warm. This definitely is a nice place to spend some time with your loved ones. Plenty of towels and bathrobes can be found downstairs so no need to take them from the room.

We had dinner at Ticino, their signature Mediterranean restaurant and it didn’t disappoint! What a great looking restaurant with top notch service! Service truly was very personal and kind. The menu looked great and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here! To be honest, the beef carpaccio was one of a kind! It was just delicious!! Breakfast is served here as well and truly is a five star experience! Choices are endless and the food was of a very good quality!

We had dinner at the Sachergrill, a traditional Austrian grill restaurant located on the ground level. We loved every single dish, from the pumpkin soup to the most wonderful steak! Oh and be sure to check out there famous ‘Sacher Torte’, a delicious chocolate cake. I was in heaven while eating J Staff was excellent and had a great knowledge about each dish and made excellent wine choices.
