You may not know this, but Fraser Suites Hamburg sits on the site of the former Oberfinanzdirektion in Hamburg. Many years ago, this unique building was once an important financial building for the city, and as you walk around the corridors you’ll notice the unique intricacies of the architecture.
We wanted to keep the story of the building alive through its restoration by creating some very unique and inviting spaces. One of them is just fantastic and it’s arguably the hidden gem of our hotel. When you have some time free make sure you visit The Library.
There’s a library in the hotel?
Yes. We believe that it is important to have a space in the hotel where guests can give themselves a little me-time without having to go back to their rooms. This space was designed to be comfortable and act as an urban sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle for a few hours.
Some guests love the room as it’s uncommon these days for hotels to have a dedicated space for guests to venture away for a few minutes to get some peace and quiet.
What did The Library used to be?
The space was formerly known as the Senator Room and was a place for formal meetings. When you’re sitting down in the room if you take a moment to look at the ceiling and length of the space, you’ll get an idea of why it was used this way.
What can I do in The Library?
There aren’t many hotels that can promise a good read but that’s what we try to do at Fraser Suites Hamburg. We recommend you find the comfiest seat and browse through one of the coffee table books for some light reading. If you know you’ll have a few hours free, have a peruse of the selection on the shelves and get cosy by the fireplace for a good read.
The room also has a great view and some people just come in to watch the world go by in a quiet space. It’s the kind of place you could sit down for a few minutes to do some people-watching and before you know it half an hour has passed by.
Are there any rules in The Library?
We don’t take rules too formally here, but we do recommend that if you plan on spending time in The Library to keep noise to a minimum for other guests. That obviously means keeping phones on silent or using headphones if you plan to lounge on the sofa and use the free high-speed wi-fi to stream a TV Show.
Where in the hotel is The Library?
The library is located on the first floor. It is solely for the exclusive use of guests staying with us.
What other ways can I unwind at Fraser Suites Hamburg?
We’ve just recently opened our new saunas for our hotel guests who want to decompress and rejuvenate after a long day. And don’t forget that in the evenings you can pull up a chair and sip on an expertly made cocktail at the O.V.A.L bar.Read Less
