“Take care to choose the right room”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

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.

It could be a nice hotel, if the staff was competent and the service quality ok. Neither was the case during our stay, which was an absolute catastrophe. First we were given a room with an incredibly dirty glass roof, very nice if you want to wake up early... We had to struggle to obtain an other room and realized in the night that heating and power were out of service, and that the bed was full of disgusting paper bits! If you want to have a nice stay in Hamburg, best stay away from this place.

The hotel has a good appaerance, but the rooms are in seperate buildings. That was a bit strange and it was not easy to find the good building. The receptionist doestn't give us the good direction and if I may do a suggestion, she had to show us our room. That is good service! Unfortunately they don't do that in Hotel Schmidt.
But the rooms are fine. Good bed, clean bathroom and they serve a tastfull breakfast.

First the good:
The location near the S-Bahn was great. We stayed in Ottmarschen because we have family nearby, but we were able to get into the city center very easily. There are supermarkets, shops and restaurants on the Waitzstrasse just around the corner and a doner kabob place that was open all night, just across the street.
The breakfast the served was pretty good. Two types of eggs, sausages, cheeses, cold cuts, cereal, loads of breads, different yogurts, hot chocolate, juice and coffee. Definitely worth the extra cost!

The bad:
While the beds are ok, the pillows and blankets are abysmal. Don't bother asking for extras because they will NOT hook you up. The pillows are so flat and skimpy it almost feels like a practical joke. The rooms are not especially nice, the showers are tiny and a little slippery (but the water pressure was so good!), and they are cheap with the towels too. They gave us 2 towels for two adults and a baby. WTF? Requests for more were also brushed aside.
Don't expect much from housekeeping either. They make the bed, clean the bathroom and change the towels, but they don't change the sheets and they don't seem to vacuum.
The internet is easy to get on, but very slow. Also, there is no AC, so if you come in the summer, prepare to sweat it out, but I think that's common for this area.

We stayed here 6 nights which was about 4 too many.

I have stayed at the Hotel Schmidt in Othmarschen Hamburg many times due to its location near the S-Bahn (railway) and also that it is close to where relatives live. However my recent stay was unusual to say the least. Due to a staff member not turning up for work, we ended up being locked outside the main house and once a cleaner turned up with the key, the guests ended up preparing the breakfast! Luckily this only happened once but it was very unprofessional to say the least. Fellow german guests were very embarrassed.
Originally, this hotel was well run, however an expansion phase some years ago meant that the hotel doubled its size with the addition of the next door house. Ensuite bathrooms were installed in every room, but the vision is fading to say the least. Mixed up bookings, patchy cleaning and wi-fi that only operates in the breakfast area despite claims to the contrary, are just not good enough anymore. Also be warned that an outside Bar operates for 9 months of the year right next to the 2nd house and noise from this establishment until 2am is quite common. Unfortunately, the only alternative in this area is the Novotel Arena which is another 20 minutes walk. It is such a shame that this hotel does not care enough for the myriad of guests that like to stay in this very convenient location.

Hotel Schmidt is a nice, well-kept property. The breakfast buffet dining area has a enclosed porch in back that was enjoyed on sunny mornings during our stay. Our upstairs double and bathroom were small, basic and clean. The property has a separate annex (didn’t stay there) across the drive next to a small bar/café (did enjoy some cocktails there). The hotel is well situated in a suburban neighborhood with a nice shopping street just past the Othmarschen S-Bahn stop. Being next to a S-Bahn stop is another plus since you can easily get to the Hamburg city-center in maybe 15-20 mins. The S1 train also goes to the airport, and it's an easy and economical way to get there to catch your flight. We wanted to give Hotel Schmidt higher marks, but some things could use improvement. We hated our shower, which had a funky and really unusable curtain that would cling to you making showering difficult. Others in our group didn't have this problem having showers with a fixed enclosure/door. Hopefully the hotel will install a proper shower enclosure in that room. While breakfast/kitchen and cleaning staff were efficient and seemed to work hard to please their guests, the front-desk staff sometimes seemed dis-interested and were not much help at times when we asked. This was even a comment from our German friend who stopped by to visit.

Room Tip: Get a room with a shower stall/enclosure!
