Le Méridien Hamburg *

Formerly: Le Royal Méridien Hamburg

A-list hotel with an eye for design (and a lovely lake)
One of the top swish options within close proximity to all things gay and glorious in St Georg, the 284-room Royal Méridien has a certain urban catwalk thing going on, eschewing the kind of stuffiness and grandeur one associates with these prices in favour of sleekness, benign funkiness and artiness. Walls are decorated with artworks whenver possible, furnishings are designer-modern, colours are uncoventional and there's a light and airy feel throughout much of the building. An atmospherically lit, circular and cavernous-feeling bar (Opus Lounge) dominates the ground level while the ninth-floor restaurant/bar Le Ciel provides spectacular views of Hamburg's serene and beautiful lake the Alster. Gym facilities are more neat and tidy than expansive, and there's a spa. Walking to the Lange Reihe will not provide much exercise as it's a mere four minutes away. Purpose-built in 2003 and taken over by Starwood Hotels in 2005.

    There's much to like and love here, but for a price. A four and a half that's closer to a five than a four.

    More or less out of date 90s design, but the most important for a gay traveller is that the showers are all built in and wall mounted,so no opportunities for the bowel irrigation. Not FF friendly;-)
