What´s more: All of the public rooms are available for private hire. Overnight guests will also find the utmost in privacy in the 118 well-appointed guestrooms and 7 suites.
New London Style: Reinventing the Classics
Hamburg’s The George sets a “New London” style and attitude in scene. With a decidedly modern and light-hearted twist to English tradition and design, The George transports the best of an era into our own.
Afternoon Tea, Harris Tweed and Gentlemens Clubs … the elegance and etiquette of a bygone era have found their way into modern London style and design. With strong visual effects and contemporary forms, designers like Terence Conran, Kit Kemp and Paul Smith have given a fresh new look and attitude to classic London style. Tradition mixes with vibrant textures and colours to create a low-key “New London Style”.
Inspired by this style, The George brings an air of London to Hamburg. The Four-Star Hotel in Hamburg’s St.Georg quarter opened its doors in Autumn 2008. The project was initiated by hotelier Kai Hollmann who already counts Hamburgs Gastwerk Hotel to his achievements.
