If charming canals and historic churches are your thing, Sir Nikolai is your thing, too. The hotel, a seven-story Kontorhaus that used to be a seed warehouse, has a prime location in Hamburg’s Old Town on the gorgeous Nikolaifleet canal, steps from Sankt Katharinen, the Elbphilharmonie, Deichtorhallen and HafenCity.

My stay at Sir Nicolia was very disappointing. The services was not good, you had to specify if you want to have breakfast and order the exact breakfast before 9pm on the day before. There were no enough staff to provide a proper service at the hotel and their manager was really arrogant in addressing the issue claiming that “All Hotels in Hamburg” have no staff because of Covid. I informed him that I will be returning back and staying at Atlantic Hotel and he claimed that his girl friend works there are no staff there which was complete lie. Room AC was not working properly and no one was available to help and also they didn’t replace the toilet paper and I had to go down and get more from the restaurant toilet!! This was a big disappointment

We are normally staying in Sir Nikolai, we have showroom nearby. This trip was family trip, booked nice rooms with breakfast. At the check in we got notified breakfast must be preordered the day before.. Furthermore aircon was not working in the rooms 405-411, they couldnt offer a fan so we checked out the day after.

I love the rooms. The interior decoration is very original, and the rooms are quiet and comfortable. A big negative is that parking is 20 minutes away (and the hotel pretends it's 10 minutes). Some of the receptionists are condescending and arrogant, others very friendly. A mixed impression but ultimately not my next choice as the hotel is too expensive for that.

Dear BarSTL, Many thanks for taking time to write this review. Great to hear that your are loving you design and interior. Your are right that our location quiet central and in this case heavy to find a parking space. We have a corporation with the garage “Hafentor” to park your car. This is only 10 minutes by walk. Please ask our front office team for a parking card at your next stay with us. I well noted that you are not so happy with our staff, please be sure that I will share your feedback with my team. I hope to welcoming you soon again. All the best for you and stay safe, Yours Maximilian Mücke Front Office Manager

Nice stay. Nice interior design. BUT actually no bar, no restaurant. I don’t like the fact the digital displays next to the bed are bright all night long. For me that’s totally unacceptable. In bath area no Switches found for light at the mirror.

Dear valued Guest, thank you very much for taking the time to let us know your experience at our property. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your overall stay with us. Unfortunately, our restaurant had to close down due to the pandemic earlier this year. The Digital display on the walls are designed the way they are for safety reasons, which is up to the highest standards. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again at our hotel property.
