Hotel: Adina Apartment Hotel Michel, Hamburg

Adina Apartment Hotel Hamburg Michel has managed the trifecta – comfort, location and style in one of Germany’s most beautiful cities.

Opening in December 2010, Adina Michel sits cosily amidst Hamburg’s biggest attractions – the iconic St Michaelis, Hamburg’s bustling harbour and its city-centre – and is perfectly situated for first time visitors, those there on brisk business or those simply wanting a weekend away.

Just an €8 cab ride from the Hauptbahnhoff, Adina Michel is in easy walking distance of the harbour, with its famous fish markets and bracing Elb pier walk. 10 minutes will take you into the centre of the city for shopping, coffee and the beautiful Rathaus. You are just moments away from the Baroque masterpiece, St Michaelis and, if it’s supplies you need for your fully equipped kitchen, you won’t have to look far at all. Bakeries and markets are minutes away in several directions.

With room service, two televisions sporting excellent entertainment programs and wifi (€3.50 for three hours) rooms are fully equipped for evenings spent recovering from sightseeing or lazy Sunday mornings – if you don‘t make an appearance at the buffet breakfast. Plus a little balcony gives you somewhere to take your coffee and get some fresh air, should the weather permit.

If you chance upon Hamburg in cooler (okay, freezing) weather, and you aren’t interested in working up a sweat in the hotel’s gym, then the heated swimming pool, jacuzzi & sauna could be the solution.

Adina Michel is a calm oasis in the middle of one of Germany’s biggest cities, somewhere to hang your hat and unwind in stylish comfort. Its excellent facilities, and perfect location all go far to make your stay in Hamburg just that little more pleasurable – but where it gets extra marks is for its friendly 24-hour reception who you may meet upon your return from sampling Hamburg’s fantastic nightlife.
