Inspired by circles, the sculptural architecture of the building is mirrored in the interior room concept: the trapezoid layout with its curved walls, impressive panoramic facade and floor-to-ceiling windows creates liberating spaces, flooded with light. Opening up to these expansive views, nature becomes part of the hotel experience. There is ample head space too, courtesy of the 2.85m/9ft ceiling height, and starting from the Deluxe room category, a 5m2/54ft² private balcony adds to this sense of generosity.
Warm, bright hues of soft turquoise, light blue and beige, or Royal Blue with gold accents blend with the beautiful materials and designer furniture. They reflect the unique setting on the shores of Lake Alster in the midst of the park. The oak wood gracing the parquet flooring originates from the forest of the Fontenay Abbey in Burgundy, France. Together with decorative objects by Danish design brand Georg Jensen and original artwork by the Peruvian painter Antonio Máro, they create a canvas of complete harmony.
A touchpad allows guests to conveniently open and close the blinds without a sound, choose between different lighting scenarios, or to adjust the air conditioning in the room. A tablet or a laptop can be connected to the TV via HDMI.
In this peaceful setting, The Fontenay masters the balance between nature and urban living in the midst of Hamburg’s core – it is a city resort in the heart of the town. All guest rooms offer beautiful views across the Rotherbaum district, the park or Lake Alster.
