Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

Swish hotel in central lake-side Hamburg
An 1897 hotel taken under the wing of the international Fairmont chain in 2007. Pricey and posh, with full amenities and great attention to detail, and located not at all far from gay St Georg. Rooms overlooking the Alster tend to be about 50 euros pricier than those loooking into the courtyard. There are several restaurants serving German and international cuisine, with the crown jewel being the Michelin-star Haerlin.
