Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


In Hamburg's old town, the Sir Nikolai Hamburg is a modern boutique hotel that overlooks the Nikolaifleet canal.

The property sits in the shadow of Sankt Katharinen, one of the city's oldest churches and is less than a 10-minute walk from both the ancient Speicherstadt district and HafenCity, Hamburg's new quarter home to bars, restaurants and cafes.

Dine on Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine at the restaurant, which features a retractable glass roof, and enjoy a nightcap on one of the two sun terraces overlooking the canal. There's an on-site spa for massages and treatments. The hip interiors combine marble, eclectic artwork, vintage furniture and statement chandeliers.

Each room offers free Wi-Fi, a rain shower, a pillow menu and a Bluetooth speaker pre-loaded with the entire back catalogue of The Beatles (the iconic band performed regularly in Hamburg in the early 1960s).
