Le Méridien Hamburg is a hotel located near the city center of Hamburg. It was the first time I stayed at a Méridien hotel and was very curious and excited to check out this hotel. This five star hotel has it all … from the luxurious rooms to the roof top restaurant and bar with the most amazing views of the Aussen Alster lake. Right from the beginning, I knew that this hotel stay would be flawless. The lobby area is just stunning and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. What a great start at this Méridien hotel!
The room we stayed in was luxurious and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable hotel stay: a very comfortable couch, working desk and a wonderful bathroom with separate walk-in shower and bath tub. The room was very cozy and I loved the lighted backside of the beds. Great touch! The Nespresso machine and bathrobes made my stay even more pleasant. I do need to mention that the beds are of a great quality. It was lovely to spend time in this room…
For me, one of the top features of Le Méridien Hamburg is their restaurant Heritage which is located on the top floor of the hotel. It offers the most stunning views over the lake. The first night while we were in Hamburg we had dinner and I can honestly say that they served me one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Right from the beginning to the end, our restaurant experience was flawfless, food was outstanding and service was excellent. The sommelier did a great job, providing us with the right wines with the right dishes. The chef uses excellent ingredients and every dish looked like a painting. And having such a good dinner with such an incredible view … we were in heaven!
After an evening walk, we took the panoramic elevator (be sure to check that one out J) and have a drink at the bar. It was the perfect way to end our beautiful day.
Another great thing about this hotel is the spa area with a large indoor pool, sauna and steam room. It is a great place to relax and unwind. Next to the spa area is a large fitness facility equipped with up to date equipment. Again, service was excellent and nothing was asked for too much! Loved it! Bath robes can be found in the room!
After spending several nights here, we always looked forward to having breakfast in the restaurant upstairs. Le Méridien Hamburg offers a fantastic breakfast buffet to their guests. Anything you want is there and even requested beans in tomato sauce which they served in just minutes. The sparkling wine is a bonus, by the way!
Be sure to check out their new bar downstairs, Latitude. I really liked the hip and trendy atmosphere!
I LOVED our stay at Le Méridien Hamburg and am not surprised that it is rated as one of the best five star hotels in the city. I would rate every facility here with five stars, from the rooms to the most wonderful staff one could wish for! Excellent choice when you are in Hamburg!
