Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg
The Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg faces the Alsterfleet canal.
A walking and cycling path, the Alsterwanderweg, runs in front of the hotel at water level. In this picture, a commuter bikes to work while a fisherman adjusts his rod and reel with the hotel's breakfast room as a backdrop. Here's a photo of the breakfast room, a.k.a. Restaurant am Fleet, taken from the lobby:
The S-Bahn's Stadthausbrücke station has an entrance along the Alsterwanderweg, a few meters from the hotel.
From Stadthausbrücke, it's only one stop by S-Bahn to the Landungsbrücken boat pier in the harbor and two stops to the Reeperbahn. In the other direction, the Hauptbahnhof or main railroad station is just two stops from the hotel.
The Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg's main entrance is at street level, facing a bridge across the canal that doubles as a taxi stand.
Inside the lobby is a large reception desk, where you'll normally find several receptionists on duty.
The lobby is attractive, with plenty of natural light from glass walls that face the Alsterfleet.
I stayed in Room 619, which overlooked the Alsterfleet.
(This photo, taken from near the windows, shows the large desk, a chair for
reading on the right, and a king-size bed.)
These pictures show views from Room 619 at the Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg. The upper photo was taken from the center of the room; in the telephoto shot, a U-Bahn train approaches the historic Rödingsmarkt station, which opened in 1912 and is a one- or two-minute walk from the hotel.
