traveling is good, but traveling with tips from local people is much better. See below for tips from my friend Jurgen Vieth, about the city of Hamburg in Germany.
Jurgen lives between Hamburg and Ibiza and whenever he can he is always traveling and following electronic music festivals. Like most of my readers here, he is also a foodie and is always looking around the world for the best that each place can offer.
Best Hotels in Hamburg:
1 – FONTENAY HAMBURGO
The Fontenay was voted in 2021 the most luxurious hotel in Hamburg and famous for having public figures, politicians and celebrities among its guests. The property is located on the shore of Lake Alster in Hamburg, a short walk from the famous Jungfernstieg shopping area. The resort has a unique architecture and is undoubtedly a great option for those who want to visit the city.
2- THE GEORGE
The St. Georg district, which has become a hip new town, is the St. Georg district that gave rise to the name of George’s hotel – and you can bet there’s a sensible reason they’ve Anglicized it. Hamburg’s relationship with England goes back a long way – it’s no accident that the Beatles learned their skills here – and it is this particular relationship that the owner and designer of the George has sought to underline.
That explains a lot why the average hotel looks more like a centuries-old London gentlemen’s club than a modern Continental design hotel. It’s all here – patterned wallpapers, leather armchairs, afternoon tea and whiskey from the bar. Rooms are a little more contemporary, mixing some classic English icons with crisp modern fixtures and muted masculine colours. This is how you achieve unity of style without moving to pastiche.
Like any decent British restaurant, the kitchen serves upscale Mediterranean fare (of course we’re kidding). There’s a library that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Drones Club, and on the roof there’s a spa that’s strangely charming and Moroccan in style, surrounded by a terrace overlooking the city. Frankly, it’s a little shocking to look at the horizon and see not London, but Hamburg, the Elbe and not the Thames – it’s a side of Germany you don’t see very often, and George is the ideal vantage point to see this.
3 – EAST HOTEL & RESTAURANT
We will try to resist binding you to some sweeping generalization about the practical and sensible nature of some imagined German national character, and simply say: we wholeheartedly endorse the tendency to list room descriptions as t-shirt sizes on a spectrum from Small to X-Large and beyond, eliminating the kind of category creep that results in an entire hotel filled with Deluxe or Superior rooms, with no Standard or Lower to be found. The East Hotel & Restaurant in Hamburg carries a deep vein of just that kind of practicality.
Here we go again. To be fair, the first thing you notice is not how well-organized the place is, but how stylish it is. Chicago architect Jordan Mozer seems to have taken the hotel’s name seriously in a somewhat literal way, weaving Asian touches like silk drapes and soft-edged organic shapes into every interior. Accommodation ranges from small, very comfortable rooms to XX-Large two-bedroom suites, all modern in style but never chilly, perhaps more Bangkok boudoir than the Malmö museum.
All these images from the Far East are more than chance, of course. East is highly regarded for its pan-Asian restaurant as well as its hotel rooms, and the scene revolving around Yakshi’s cocktail bar is as lively as any in town. The hotel’s location offers access to both the Reeperbahn (still as vile or wonderful as ever, depending on your tastes) and the newly decaying but quickly ennobled St. Pauli district, with all the nightlife and shopping possibilities that entails. In the morning, when it’s all over, gather your strength for a trip upstairs to the rooftop spa and sauna and get ready to do it all over again.
4- LE MERIDIEN HAMBURGO
This modern hotel has an attractive and bright style that extends from the elegantly furnished rooms (with specially designed therapeutic beds) to the wellness area. The restaurant on the ninth floor offers a fantastic view of Lake Außenalster.
5 – WESTIN HAMBURGO
Hamburg’s latest architectural landmark, the Elbphilharmonie, is a truly spectacular venue: its futuristic superstructure housed in a former warehouse and connected by the Plaza. The Westin offers magnificent views of the harbor and HafenCity, bright, modern rooms in a minimalist style and a chic spa. Northern German cuisine at the Fang & Feld restaurant.

3 – NIKKI TIGER
Stylish, different, cool: In May 2018, the Japanese-inspired Nikki Tiger debuted at the former address of popular electronic clubs Ego and Villa Nova.
More has changed here than just the name. Between pop art, plush and big screens, the public enjoys good drinks, house dancing and hip-hop or uses the terrace with its red and white lanterns as a backdrop for the documentation of the party.
Inspired by Tokyo’s past and present, the lower room is lit by a large light installation bearing the club’s name and some light artwork. Here, guests are definitely in the modern Tokyo of the future. Upstairs you step into the past and into a cozier environment, decorated with pictures of a geisha, plush seating areas and hidden dark corners. For an entry of around ten euros, there is an exclusive party atmosphere.
4 – LE LION
There is good reason why Le Lion is ranked among the top 20 bars in the world. Despite the very French name, you don’t have to go to Paris to find out why. Instead, head to Germany’s second largest city, Hamburg. Behind such an anonymous entrance that I’ve met people who don’t think they have business, you’ll find a small, intimate place that’s a real gem.
