Located directly on the banks of Lake Alster, in the city of Hamburg, The Fontenay offers spectacular views of the lake and the downtown cityscape from most of the hotel’s rooms and suites, as well as its rooftop bar and terrace, gourmet restaurant, swimming pool and spa.
To take advantage of the views, The Fontenay’s gourmet restaurant is located on the roof, and will be under the direction of the hotel’s Michelin starred Executive Chef, Cornelius Speinle. The yet-to-be named restaurant will accommodate 40 guests, with a private dining room for an additional 10 diners, and will also feature a spacious wrap-around al fresco terrace, with spectacular views of Lake Alster and Hamburg city.
But even more spectacular than the views is the hotel’s unique architecture, by Hamburg-born architect Jan Störmer, which resembles three interlocking circles. As such, there are no straight walls within the hotel and no wall is parallel to another. Consequently, almost every piece of furniture had to be custom-made to reflect the unconventional space.
Bound to become a become a must-visit destination for architecture and design aficionados, The Fontenay is also close to the historic Speicherstadt, the 19th- Century Warehouse District, the recent opening of the Herzog & de Meuron and the Elbphilharmonie concert hall, which is attracting visitors from all over the world. The hotel even offers a special Art & Architecture tour package. A guest room is 550 Euro which equals approx. 616.80 US .
