Hotel Grand Elysee, Hotel Böttcherhof and the centrally-located Marriott all have extensive wellness sections offering spa and massage services.
Apartment Hotel Hamburg Mitte and St. Raphael offer reasonable rates and a central location. If you’re more of a partygoer and need a place to stay close to the Reeperbahn red-light and entertainment district, Monopol, Zleep and St.Joseph are your best bet.
