If you’re frantically googling where to stay in Hamburg, hopefully this review will help you out. I stayed at the rather lovely Hotel Baseler Hof on my recent trip to Hamburg, which worked out really well as a cosy base for exploring this brilliant and underrated German city.
I very rarely stay in hotels these days, usually going for apartments to save a bit of money. However, my time in Hamburg was limited and the weather was freezing, so I needed to be a) in a reliable hotel and b) really central. Hotel Baseler Hof ticked the boxes with a very big fat tick and I loved every minute of my time there. This is the first hotel review I’ve EVER written, by the way. Does that make me a proper travel blogger now?!
While you’re here and clearly doing a bit of Hamburg research, allow me to not-so-subtly shove you towards my post about how to spend 2 days in Hamburg, which covers all the things to do, see, eat and drink that I enjoyed there. It features a lot of cocktails and model railways. A classic combination.
If you’re just after a very honest review of a hotel that I genuinely would recommend for a city break in Hamburg, keep reading…
