Exceptional 10.0
Beautifully designed, great location
This is the most beautiful hotel I’ve ever stayed in, it even smells great. The attention to detail in the decor of the rooms makes it really special and individual, it’s definetly not your average hotel chain. Beautiful bathroom, incredible shower, high tech gadgets, well stocked mini bar and an unbelievably comfortable bed, I was already looking up it’s sister hotels as soon as we’d checked in. It’s also in a great location for everything, close to both the Rathaus and the philharmonic and two stops from the Reeperbahn. Such a great find.

Welcoming, helpful staff, comfortable stay
We dealt with 3 different reception staff and they were all very helpful and made us feel welcome. The room was so impressive that we enquired about upgrading to a better room. We were able to do this after the first night. It was worth the move, the bath tub extremely spacious and the room much bigger overall. Location is great for the Elbphilharmonie, about a 10 minute walk, and for city shopping and restaurants, also a few minutes away. We would stay here again when returning to Hamburg.

Amazing stay
Such a great place! My parents and I utterly enjoyed our stay at Sir Nikolai. Amazing decor, amazing service. I would not recommend the restaurant downstairs. Completely overpriced for very low-quality food. Try and visit VLET in the Speicherstadft which is 6min walk away. Overall, a super thoughtful hotel with loads of attention to detail. I would recommend.
