This playful new hotel pays homage to its surroundings with “tongue-in-cheek” nautical decor, said Karrie Jacobs in Travel + Leisure. Located in Hamburg’s recently redeveloped harbor district, it offers 170 cozily contemporary rooms featuring knotted-rope flourishes and desks “made from what look to be old steamer trunks.” Among the common areas to relax: a willfully spartan Finnish sauna and the Vinyl Room—a space outfitted with records and turntables. The hotel restaurant evokes a container ship; if you begin craving adventure, just rent yourself a bike at the lobby’s cycle shop.25hours-hotels.com; doubles from $137
