I Hamborg boede jeg en nat på det fem uge gamle 25hours Hotel Altes Hafenamt, som er åbnet i en smuk, fredet havnebygning. 25hours Hotel Altes Hafenamt gav mig den skønneste oplevelse, og alt var perfekt – fra morgenmadbuffeten, mit værelse, den lækre indretning, det venlige personale til, at man gratis kan låne retro Pelago cykler for at opleve Hamborg på den bedste vis. Hvis I endnu ikke har besøgt Hamborg, så giver jeg alle mine anbefalinger!
ENGLISH: Ever dreamt about staying a night in an former harbour office now turned in to one of the most hippest hotels in the center of Hamburg? I have, and last week in Hamburg I was so lucky to be invited to spend a night at the recently opened 25hours hotel Altes Hafenamt located in the HafenCity district of Hamburg. The hotel is brand new, five weeks old to be exact, but it was already perfectly decorated and everything on point.
The hotel is fairly small, it holds 49 rooms, but this is part of the charm. The hotel offers four different types of rooms, and I stayed in the xl-room, and it was amazing. I seriously wish that I could have taken most of the interior and style out of the room and brought it back home to my own apartment. There was an amazing, big bed, which is key for a good night’s sleep when traveling. Then there was a cool book-shelf system, a big TV, a nice chill-out “lounge” and, last but not least, a great and spacious bathroom. I loved the room so much that we decided to stay in a whole night and only went out to get dinner to come back right after. Yep, it was a really good bed 😉
After a good night’s sleep, it was time for breakfast, and you guys know me. I love food! I am the kind of person that literally lives to eat and looks forward to the next meal as soon as I finish another. And, the breakfast buffet at 25hours Hotel Altes Hafenamt, which for the record, also has a Neni Restaurant as in Berlin, fully lived up to my expectations. This buffet held everything one could wish for – from breakfast classics such as scrambled eggs, bacon and toast, to more Mediterranean-inspired foods like hummus, tzatziki and olives, and not to forget the sweet stuff. There was a yogurt bar where one could mix their own breakfast bowl with different granolas, fruits and nuts. Yummy!
After breakfast and a bit more chilling in the room, as our amazing receptionist Rafael let us check out a little later than usually, it was time for us to head out and be tourists, and here we get to the best part of it all; 25hours Hotel Altes Hafenamt offers free bikes! How amazing is that? My favorite way to explore and get around cities is by biking, and how convenient is it that the hotel offers free bikes to their guests? And the bikes were beautiful! We had the best time biking around Hamburg on the hip and beautiful Pelago bikes, and we had such a great night staying at the 25hours Hotel Altes Hafenamt, whether it was the beautiful, old building, the cozy room, the breakfast, the friendly staff or the bikes that did it, or simply a mixture of them all! I would really recommend you to start planning a getaway to Hamburg asap, as it is definitely a great destination for a short weekend trip!
Thank you, 25hours hotel Altes Hafenamt for an unforgettable experience!
