Fodor's Expert Review Arcotel Onyx Hamburg

Reeperbahn 1 A, Hamburg, Hamburg, 20359, Germany

Moored at the start of the Reeperbahn, like a giant spaceship that’s just touched down, this black-glass monolith houses a welcoming design hotel ideal for those who want to just dip their toes into the waters of the red-light district. Like actual onyx, the inside of the hotel is full of light colors, with golden marble floors in the open-plan lobby and guest rooms highlighted by yellow leather headboards. The effect is one of sanctuary, while medium-sized rooms with high-back swivel chairs and bull’s-eye windows further a sensation of being in some sort of futuristic vessel. There's a small, stylish bar for refreshments before and after exploring the area’s musical theaters, bars, and clubs, and a little gym and spa area.
