The George Hotel in Hamburg. British themed and German operated….think of this Hotel as a Club House that works. ( Barcelona chairs and a big deep sofa in the fireplace room just of the lobby-perfect to cuddle up in for those long distance calls home) Pleasant colors, (dark greys, rich browns) smart designs, solid wooden floors and modern art that brings a touch of whimsy-but never too much of “theme.” Jellyfish sconces. Phillip Starck “Lounge Gun Floor Lamps” (Enlight-don’t fight.) Eames rockers in white, fluffed up with British flag pillows. Looks just like home. Well, almost. But it shares the same design principles: form with function, seriousness with a wink. Located in the St.George neighborhood, a block away from the Alster-I like this place.
