A timeless home on Hamburg's most beautiful canal.

If charming canals and historic churches are your thing, Sir Nikolai is your thing, too. The hotel, a seven-story Kontorhaus that used to be a seed warehouse, has a prime location in Hamburg’s Old Town on the gorgeous Nikolaifleet canal, steps from Sankt Katharinen, the Elbphilharmonie, Deichtorhallen and HafenCity.
