Q1 Is probably my favorite residential building in the world. Its tall and beautiful, especially at night.

It will be my favorite until Absolute World gets built in my city. A 56 storey curving tower, accompanied by another 50 storey curving tower.

Hamburg has ten 5-star Hotels (5 stars defined by german DEHOGA classification, which has - according to Wikipedia - a relatively high standard in comparison to classification systems of other countries). Here the best of them:

Hotel Atlantic Kempinski, 5-star superior ("one of the best hotels in the world and elected several times as Germany's best hotel" - wikipedia.de)


Raffles Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, 5-star superior


Dorint Sofitel, 5-star superior


Grand Elysee Hamburg, 5-star superior


Le Royal Meridien Hamburg, not yet rated by DEHOGA, but surely 5-star superior

There is only one 5 star hotel in nicosia,the nicosia hilton hotel.
Before 1974 ,Ledra palace hotel was the best hotel,but now it houses the cyprus united nations force headquarters. They will soon move out though and the hotel will be returned to its former owners(church of cyprus) which most probably turn it into a 5 star hotel again.

nicosia hilton....298 rooms




ledra palace
