There are a lot of hotels in Hamburg, and if you are looking for a bit, you are guaranteed to find a bargain. Most luxury hotels offer traditional five-star comfort, but there are also a number of good, clean guesthouses that are very good value for money, even in the lower price range.
Most hotel chains have at least one hotel in Hamburg, and since the metropolis on the Elbe is economically very important in Germany, the hotel scene specializes primarily in the international business travel market. This also explains the rather unusual phenomenon that the tariffs tend to be higher on weekdays than at the weekend, but you should always inquire about discounts.
The following hotels in Hamburg are divided into three categories.
Luxurious (over 180 €)
Moderate (120 to 180 €)
Inexpensive (up to 120 €)
This is the minimum price for a double room per night with taxes, but without breakfast.
