"Don't get fooled by name!"
I just want to share my honest experience for second time so that people don't get fooled by the name L' Meridian it looks like a great location which could be however most of the rooms are facing to a dark courtyard, not a friendly staff AT ALL whatsoever. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone specially in this price range does not worth at all.
"Perhaps great location but not to sleep"
The hotel has nice lobby area, bar with a great view and also restaurant on the 9th floor. The room is more 4*. It is good, fully functional but you wooden floor damaged and the room is more functional than nice. Breakfast, I have to say is rich in variety and quality. The one issue I have is when you can't sleep due to noise and it is here a massive problem. My room (307) was facing the main street. No matter what time, there is always traffic and the level of noise is unbearable. I will never stay here again I am afraid only for this reason.
"One of my favorites!"
I've stayed at this hotel many times during the last ten years. It is definitely one of my favorites. Great location on the Alster. The rooms are very nice, modern contemporary design. Showers are big and very nice after a long run around the Alster. Breakfast on the 9th floor is heavenly, with a view over the lake and city. Staff friendly and professional. I can't wait to come back to the Le Meridien!
Hotel is located at Binnenalster. Good for Walking into the City and other Locations. Fantastic breakfast with great view over the City. Staff is friendly and they help where ever they can. Room modern, good space and silent. It is the second time we are there and we definitely will stay there whenever we are in Hamburg.
"International Hotel with stunning views of the Alster."
The Le Meridien Hotel is located right on the Ausenalster (Outer- Alster) with great views of the lake. The hotel is in walking distance to the Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station) and the Binnenalster (Inner Alster) and the Jungfernstig from where the lake cruises leave from. There are a number of different cruises ranging from ¾ hour to 2 hr. all serve drinks and the longer one they also serve food. We stayed in the Le Meridien Hotel purely for the position and the views of the lake. We cannot fault the hotel, the staff where very help full and friendly. On the first night we did had an evening meal here which was very good. Margaret and Klaus
