This waterside complex does not have a lot of designer flash and flair but the modern, businesslike accommodations put you within easy walking distance of St. Pauli nightlife. Best of all, a room with a view here provides a front row seat for the comings and goings in the busy harbor below, and many city sights are an easy stroll or short U-Bahn ride away. This sprawling complex encompasses a 19th-century seafarer’s residence and two modern towers—rooms in all are functionally comfy and enlivened with nautical prints, but only some have water views—that’s why you’re staying here, so make sure to request one when booking.
