A traditional, simple family hotel and very German. We had a double room for 3 nights with breakfast for 90 euros per night. In Hamburg this is good value. Good location about 50 metres from the S-bahn (20 minutes to Jungfernsteig right in the centre).
We rejected the first room we were given (just off reception in the main building) as it was too small - and the door opened right onto the entrance. The reception staff were very helpful (and speak good English) and moved us to a double in the Villa Schmidt (to the left as you look at the front of the hotel). Furnishings good - and the bathrooms are newly refitted (all marble and high quality). No air con - but windows that open - and if you are at the back of the hotel it is quiet - and you have a view of a delightful garden.
Breakfasts were fine - simple - but plenty of choice and one can't complain at the price. Ottmarschen is an upmarket area - full of well to do people and is quiet and safe - just East of Blankenese and about 1km from the Elbe. Sprinkling of nice cafes and a couple of good restaurants within two minutes stroll if you don't fancy the centre of town.
No parking charges at the Schmidt - and plenty of room at the back of the hotel by the gardens. It is quite possible to pay 20 euros per day to park at some hotels in the centre.
Overall I liked this place. I found it offers good value for money and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Just make sure you take care to ask for one of the refurbished rooms.
