Hotel Review: Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg is one of the most popular hotels in Hamburg. After a thorough renovation, the property definitely stays to be one of the best places to stay in Hamburg.
If there’s a property in Hamburg, where you can meet celebrities, then it’s Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg.
- Classification: Five Stars
- Room Category: Single Room
- Month of Stay: November
While not located right in the city center, the location right at the Alsterbecken, a stone throw away from the famous shopping center ‘Alsterhaus’ is tough to beat. The central station is a couple of minutes-walk away, public transport is available right in front of the door.
The welcome as such as the property isn’t very warm though. While I’m not a fan of the mentality of the people in Hamburg as such, I found the staff at the Vier Jahreszeiten to also be rather arrogant.
Single Room at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
As the property was fully booked, there was no upgrade available for this stay. Thus, I was assigned a Single Room. Sadly, I sort of messed up with the pictures, which means that I’ve just got very few. However, it’s worth noting that the Single Room at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten is surprisingly nice. While you’d expect a Single Room to be rather small, this one had a decent size. Upon entering, there is a small detached room to the left, which you can us as a wardrobe.
The maybe 10 to 15 square meter room as such comes with a comfortable 1,40-meters bed as well as a decent working desk with a propert office chair. There’s also a coffee table with a chair by the window. Having an indoor facing room, there was no view, but also no noise. When it comes to the décor, the renovation really worked out well. Plus, the cozy room comes with a Nespresso coffee machine and also had a nice welcome gift for Leaders Club members.
Bathroom of the Single Room
Another positive aspect of the room at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg is the bathroom. Even though not very big, it comes with a toilet, bidet, single sink and a spacious walk-in shower.
I especially appreciated the nice shower with a good rain shower head and ideal water pressure. I’d also like to stress the high quality of the Le Labo toiletries.
Dinner at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
An aspect that makes the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten a famous propertiy are the restaurants and bars. While I’m not a fan of overpriced food per se (and that’s a real problem at the Vier Jahreszeiten), I was looking forward to trying the cuisine.
Sadly, the restaurant was already full this evening, so I decided to sit down in the bar. Both, the Caesar Salad and the fish with potatoes were very good.
With the service being a little slow and the atmosphere a little lackluster, I however need to sum up my dining experience at the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg as just average. I’d just expect a little more for such elevated prices.
Breakfast at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
Maybe the thing that impressed me the most at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg was breakfast.
There is a great choice of several fresh options including cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, breads, rolls, preserves, local fish and much more.
In addition, coffee specialties and various hot options including freshly prepared eggs are served at the table. You may also order any freshly squeezed juice.
All of this is complimentary when paying for breakfast or having breakfast included. In addition, the staff is quite nice and the breakfast restaurant beautiful.
Gym at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
Even though there is no pool at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg, the property comes with a stunning fitness center on the highest floor.
The whole area looks like a living room and comes with tons of modern and high quality machines as well as free weights. I’d also recommend having a glimpse on the rooftop terrace, which must be a brilliant feature in summer times.
While I didn’t have a chance to check out the Spa with sauna, steam room and relaxation room, I was said that this area is truly lovely as well!
Overall impression of Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg
There are many reasons why the Fairmont is known to be the best property in Hamburg. The property comes with a great breakfast, beautifully renovated rooms with nice bathrooms, a brilliant gym, a very nice spa and even a rooftop terrace.
The dining experience didn’t really satisfy me due to the lack of a nice table and slightly low service. Yet, this might have just been bad timing. Sadly, the service at reception was a little arrogant. Nevertheless, I’d still say that staying at Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Hamburg is worth the money as the location and the quality is hard to beat!
