The Fritzhotel offers 17 rooms in minimalist design, each decorated with a personal touch. The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, but you can help yourself with free coffee, tea, and fruit, and there are many international eateries just around the corner. The Fritzhotel is set in the center of bustling Schanzenviertel, an up-and coming Hamburg district with hip cafes, clubs, galleries, and shops. Subway stops are close by and it is a short ride to the harbor, the Reeperbahn, and Hamburg’s city center.
For a good nights sleep, ask for one of the rooms that overlooks the tree-covered courtyard.
- Double rooms start at 90 Euros
The 3-star Hotel Hafen Hamburg is a great choice if you want to explore Hamburg’s harbor and the Reeperbahn; located in a Wilhelmina townhouse, it is right opposite of the Hamburg’s main pier called St. Pauli Landungsbruecken. If you can spend a bit more, get a room with a harbor view.
Besides a seafood restaurant, the hotel features a sauna and several bars; make sure to have a drink in the "Tower Bar", which offers commanding views of Hamburg’s cityscape.
