"Close to good restaurants and the city hall."
One of the best hotels I have stayed in....beautiful rooms with everything you could need. Staff was very cordial and helpful to us as US visitors. The breakfast buffet was expensive, but well worth the price. Even had champagne!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in the city center"
The location of the hotel is right in the center of Hamburg. Facilities are excellent. The hotel has a spa and an indoor pool. The room was spacious with bathtub and shower. Everything was in a very modern style which I prefer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful stay, like always."
Ive stayed at Sofitel Alter wall before, and I always have a great stay. Helpful staff, nice atmosphere, clean and tide rooms - and not to forget the spa, which is very relaxing. Location is good. Not far from city centre, and if you going farther, it takes two minutes to get a taxi!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel in a great location of the city!"
From the bell staff to the front desk staff to the, concierge, restaurant staff and managers, all were knowledgeable, cordial and seemed like they genuinely liked helping visitors and all of them seemed to enjoy their jobs. I've never seen a staff so universally helpful and pleasant. Food offered in the restaurants was good and again the staff was […] helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed 5 nights and staff was very nice and helpful. Most everyone spoke english well! Spa was wonderful/ workout facility was good for those who enjoy treadmill/ cycle/ eliptical. They do have light dumbells, but don't expect to keep your routine. Wifi was slow but did it's job. Couldn't stream videos which I had expected to do for entertainment. Breakfast […] was wonderful. Easy travel from airport along S1 train which has stop right next to hotel. Close to other train stations too. Overall experience was great! I would definetly stay again.

The power switches are very confusing. The coffee maker instruction is not clear. The wash sink plug did not work properly. Not quite to the standard of 5 stars, although it is a nice hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Downtown / Shopping"
Great location. The hotel does ask for a print out of the booking confirmation when you check in. And if you don't have it, they are extremely rude about it. The room itself is lovely, the beds are so comfortable. The wireless internet barely worked in our room though - only in the bathroom for some reason. The other family members we stayed with did […] not have a problem though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect Place in Hamburg"
The Sofitel Alter Wall is located in the city center, close to shopping, sights, and transportation.

"Excellent for families and business people"
The property is an absolute gem. Large comfortable room with great bathroom and walk-in shower. Friendly and helpful staff. Light and airy lobby and tasteful interior design. Centrally-located in downtown Hamburg and a well-organized, luxurious spa that is perfect for ending a long-days work or touring. Breakfast, albeit on the expensive side, offers […] a rich buffet of cold and hot items and was delicious. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, dreadful wireless connection"
I have stayed here several times and always found it comfortable, convenient and well-priced. In the past I did not rely on wireless as I did this time for iPhone and iPad. The wireless connection, although free, was just terrible and kept cutting out constantly and unpredictably, no matter where in the hotel I used it -- room, bar, lobby, etc. The […] hotel staff are well aware of it and apologetic, but this did not help me. Since I use Skype a lot, and since this was a business trip, I regret that I will not be able to consider this nice hotel again unless/until they bring their wireless network upto a decent standard.

"Good . . . but could ne more guest-friendly"
Like in many other hotels, rooms at Sofitel in Hamburg become available to arriving guests at 3PM (15:00). Since the hotel advertises to overseas guests (US, Canada, etc.), those guests arrive in the morning hours (my flight arrived at 7:30 AM), I was asked to cool my heels in the lobby from 8:30 am until 3 PM - a very long 6 1/2 hours after a sleepless […] night. Since the flight personnel of my United Airlines flight arrived at the same time as I did, it surprised me that they were promptly given rooms. Where there's a will, there's away . . . After I complained quite a bit, a room was 'discovered' and made available to me before noon. A more guest-friendly hotel would have found a solution to this problem. For example, a room cleaner could have been scheduled to arrive very early to start his or her regular work shift. But there seems to be no such interest in accommodating guests at this hotel. Dining room food was acceptable, with its service above average. A 'Mescaline Salad' is on the menu! Concierge service was limited to eight hours every day, but the concierge was a winner.

I have never been mistreated as badly in any respectable hotel. They just did not want to acknowledge my presence when I arrived to check in, and just kept doing their stuff at a leisurely pace while I was standing there, without even looking at me. Overall, the service was as if they were paying me money to stay with them. On top of everything, I could […] not find a towel in my room, only a robe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel but. .."
Good hotel.. Except The phone was not working. But we did not care. The bed, we asked for queen.. But actually we experienced two beds that were put close to each other. Me or my wife were stuck in a gap in the middle during sleep. That ws not fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sofitel hotel Hamburg Alter wall"
Our stay was a lengthy one, 10 days. The personnel were wonderful,very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was well equiped. The beds were incredible.soft but supportive and yielded a great nights sleep.The choice of seven different pillows was important. The coffee machine in the room did not work well. Breakfast was great, but the coffee was […] not up to Hamburg standards. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel but poor food"
I have eaten twice now at the bar restaurant any and the food is awful. Burger wasn't freshly made and food is generally bad. Hotel rooms are nice however bed is uncomfortable, pillows wafer thin and even thou I asked for a quiet room, I was kept up most of the night by the noise of a train.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Sofitel's location is wonderful. Many of the tourist attractions were within 10 minutes(walking) Sophie at the concierge's desk was the best her recommendations and knowledge of the city was very helpful, She resolved any issues (almost none)efficiently and with a smile she is an asset to the hotel. My Ipad was not working properly she verykindly helped […] me out. Everything was very positive with all the staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"2 day stay"
forced to use room service just to get a cup of tea! No facilities for tea or coffee in room. Room service didn't understand a request for milk with tea - language issue as I'm sure most British guests still have milk in tea these daysGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent bar service"
Excellent service from all the staff in particular in the bar who made us feel like regulars on our second nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great 5* hotel everything you'd expect from one."
Hamburg is a nice area and very different from what I'm used to but good to see a different cities.For a couple of days the city is fine but I wouldn't say any longer. German people are very friendly and now on my list of friendly people around the world :-) Great city otherwise but maybe it could use an influx of investment in the sector foreign […] dinning. Local German food was great but the City needs more diversity. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel but shabby internet"
Great hotel with amazing service from staff but ultimately I cannot recommend if you're going to Hamburg for business. As someone that travels for work I was incredibly disappointed by the internet speed. I could not complete the work I needed to accomplish in advance of my meetings as the internet was either slow or go in and out nor could I have video […] chats with my family. This is incredibly important to my while traveling. If internet is not important to you, this is a great hotel. Furthermore, the attached restaurant would close early before the actual stated closing time. Within walking distance to many locations but in the immediate vicinity, not too much.

everything you would expect from a sofitel, the hotel was lovely and the service was excellent. When we arrived at the metro station not being local the receptionist (Irene) even offered to come and find us, which in the end was not necessary. The only gripe was there was some clever photography on the pool and it is actually quite small. would i stay […] again Yes, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was in Hamburg for a party & to visit friends. The Sofitel was excellent, the room & service superb. The only down side was the cost of the breakfast. At 30€ it was expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I AM VERY SHOCK SMALL ROOM FOR ONE PERSON, NEED GOOD SPACE.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel Family of four, so the large room with loads of space was very comfortable and the beds were super comfy. Coffee machine was great. We used the Hotel Car park for 26 Euros a day, there was probably cheaper car parks however this was very convenient. Lovely relaxing swimming pool with spa area that we used each day, (beware […] if you have young children of the naked people walking around the spa area) We are vegetarian so we didn't have the buffet breakfast as they don't tend to work out very good value for money for us, however there was a 'Crobag' cafe 2 minutes walk away that 'set us up' for the day.
