Germany Holidays: Hamburg boutique hotel goes Cool Britannia

The George in the city’s Georg district is all about British style with a modern Hamburg twist. Guests appreciate chic details and good value for money.

Lovers of design hotels should take a closer look at this Hamburg property. Set in the city’s trendy St Georg district, the aptly named The George is proudly British. Which makes perfect sense since Hamburg is often described as having a British flair. This might have to do with the long-standing trading UK connection in the context of the old Hanseatic League, the city’s maritime flair, or the allegedly slightly aloof attitude of the locals. In any case, the people of Hamburg have a soft spot for things British, and there’s even an Anglo-German plus a Polo Club.

Design hotel with British and contemporary elements

The people behind The George have taken up the theme and created a design hotel that combines traditional British with contemporary elements. The hotel has a library and smoker’s lounge, rooms feature Eames rocking chairs, there’s a sophisticated bar, a rooftop spa and – to give all the Britishness a bit of a break – a Mediterranean restaurant that comes highly recommended by guests.

Apart from the stylish interior and state-of-the art facilities, The George can also score points with its location only a few minutes away from the Alster Lake, the train station and the quirky shops, bars and cafés of the St Georg quarter. Try The George and you might find that the Hamburg version of what is British style is better than what you get at home.
