Stay Safe - We care

Dear guests,

The health, safety and well-being of all our guests and employees is our top priority in everything we do. We want to make your stay at The Fontenay as comfortable and safe as possible. Below, you’ll find an overview of the hygiene measures in place in the individual areas of our hotel. 

2G+ in Hamburg: Hotel visit only with booster vaccination or negative test
The Hamburg Senate has tightened Corona measures and passed the so-called 2G+ rule, which will apply from January 10, 2022. All guests must provide proof of their booster vaccination against Covid-19 upon entering the hotel. Those who are dually vaccinated or recovered but have not yet received a booster vaccination must show official proof of a current negative Corona test. 
The following documents will be checked at the entrance: 

  •  Official photo identification (passport or ID card).
  •  Proof of your booster vaccination

If you have not yet received a booster vaccination, please show proof of your basic vaccination or recovery and an official certificate of a current negative Corona test (rapid antigen test max. 24 hours old or PCR test max. 48 hours old). If you are staying for several days, please renew and present the test daily (rapid test) or every two days (PCR test). An overview of the test centers in Hamburg can be found here:
