Hotel Schmidt: Villa Hotel Great for Women, Art Groups, Seniors
Located in the charming little sector of Hamburg-Othmarschen, Hotel Schmidt is an inn that was formerly a private city villa in one of Hamburg's most pleasant west side neighborhoods. It belongs to a 4-property group that includes apartments in the back gardens, Villa Schmidt next door, and a larger property for groups nearby. It's a simple hotel, but is intimate. Perfect for women (singles/ multiples), seniors, or romantic travel, they also accommodate groups (think small weddings, book clubs, fine & performing arts clubs, and the like).
Hotel Schmidt is suitable accommodation for someone that wants to avoid excessive city noise, preferring quiet walks & trips to dainty cafes and restaurants in a refined, but family like atmosphere. The area where it's housed, though part of Hamburg-West, doesn't feel so much like a fast paced metropolis rather than a quaint little suburb. The grittiest you'lll get in Othmarschen is the fast food kiosk across the street from the hotel at the train station, and that's about it.
Although Hotel Schmidt is an inn, because it's housed in what was formerly a private residence, you can expect to see the local neighbors picking up flowers and vegetables at the local stand, dads driving their Mercedes home from the office, Moms jogging or carting golden retrievers in the back seats of Volvos, and little old German ladies with perfectly coiffed hair on their way to meet friends for ice cream served in crystal boats.
The staff at the hotel is exceptionally friendly, and the front desk attendees speak English fluently. They have suggestions for activities in the area as well as tips for events around Hamburg to help make your stay interesting.
The complete first floor of the inn is the general dining area, where breakfast is served buffet style every morning (included in the price).
The rooms are very simply but tastefully appointed with double bedding, & a space for a small seating area with neo-traditional style chairs/sofa. They have excellent bathrooms that with double sinks (a great convenience for shared rooms Wireless internet is also provided.
The location is great for mature travelers who seek tranquility. The hotel is in an upscale middle-upper middle class neighborhood- comprised of settled, suburban families. Steps from the hotel's front door are a steakhouse, a few steps further is Othmarshen's small but charming main shopping street -filled with graceful little cafes & restaurants, a grocery store, fruit & flower stands, take-out sushi, & a full service bank. When you want to get out into the hustle & bustle of Hamburg, Othmarshen S-Bahn station is directly across the street: you can be in Altona for bars, shopping, & live music in only 2 train stops (6 minutes). You can also make your way easily to downtown directly on the S1 (7 stops further from Altona) to Hamburg Main Station, or continue on directly to the Hamburg International Airport on the day you would like to depart the city.
Hotel Schmidt is also 1 train stop from Hamburg Botanical Gardens & the picturesque Jensich House Museum, former country house of 18th century Senator Martin Jenisch- people roam it's 110 acres of hills & creeks with hounds, or settle inside the small castle for coffee & sweet delicacies at Cafe Louis Jacob. The Museum charges to view art exhibits & attend classical concerts in its salons, but enjoying the outside, gift shop, or Cafe Jacob has no cover charge. Hotel Schmidt also has easy access to buses to Othmarschen locales to enjoy golf, tennis & equestrian events& polo matches.
In addition to single rooms ( €69-85 per night), and double rooms (€95-140 per night), the inn also offers fully equipped apartment dwelling (€120-220 per night).

Renaissance Hotel Hamburg: Right in the heart of town
This is a comfortable hotel and most of the staff are helpful. Set right in the heart of town you walk out of the door and there you are.
There is a bar and tea lounge in the foyer serving many a 'temptation'... Bricks Bar .....the hotel has a gym to help you work that off!
The rooms are comfortable with all the amenities. Tea making in your room as well. You do have to purchase wi fi. 'The Cloud' high speed internet is available. But I am having heaps of trouble with the wi fi and it is expensive. Found a hotel computer in the lobby but of course there is always a queue waiting for it. My turn.
And we have a bath....always happy to find a bath.
The hotel has an unusual facade and a fine example of Expressionist architecture...you can read all about this in the little booklet in you room.
The staff can help a little with directions. They do have 'the concierge reinvented' in The Navigator downstairs to help you discover hidden gems of the city...but to me a computer does not take the place of a real concierge.
As is written in the hotel guide "Not that what's outside our doors isn't totally cool, but what's inside is pretty fabulous too.
Well they do have a 'Delighted to Serve' button on the telephone......it serves the sister hotel the Marriot as well. We needed it when the shower did not work properly and our bathroom was a wash. They did come and mop up the water and brought fresh towels.
As hotels go it is OK.

Superbude: A Cool Hotel/Hostel in Central Hamburg
I stayed in Superbude with a friend in April 2009. It is a budget hostel/hotel fifteen minutes walk from the main railway station. Double rooms were from €59. They also offer dormitories from €16.
You could have a self-service buffet breakfast for €7, including bread, cheese, ham, youghurt, fruit, eggs, cereal etc.
I would very much recommend Superbude to anyone. It was clean and very modern with quirky, imaginative decor. Service was very efficient and friendly. The reception served as a bar and you could get a drink there all through the night. Despite this it was quiet and peaceful at least when were there.
The street is quite quiet with no neighbouring restaurants/bars/shops and "industrial" looking, so it might feel a bit deserted if you are walking back at night on your own. Don't think it is dangerous, but I think I would have felt a little intimidated if I had been on my own and walked there at night the first time.
The decor of Superbude is a bit different with imaginative use of flowerpots, beer crates and toilet plungers. Use of Internet in the reception was free, they had their private cinema.

Superbude: Cool Design not only for High Prices
If you like Design-Hotels for low budget you might try "Superbude". It is a hostel and you also can have double rooms. It is pretty new, opened in 2008, with cool design. As far as I know they even won a prize for the interior. Living in Hamubr I, of course, did not have to stay there but maybe on day I will have a look.
The location is OK it is close to the main station. It is not as good as those in Schanzenviertel or St. Pauli but it is OK. Public transport is fine, and it should not be more than 10-15 minutes from main station...
Have a look here for more impressions:
Costs about 20 Euro per night for a bed in a dorm.

Akzent Classic Hotel Glinde: Go Elsewhere
I stayed there for 2 nights.
1st night somone was banging outside untill 00:30.
2nd day workman woke me up at 7:00 in the morning drilling under my window.
3rd day I found a cockroach in my room.
When I complained about the noise and cockroach, I was told that if I didn't like it I could leave.
They refused to give me a reciept and forced me to pay for that night.
The Management are very very arrogant and care very little for their guests.
I would STRONGLY advise that you find another Hotel, unless yo are prepared to share your room with a cockroach. If you leave you will still have to pay for the room.
Find another Hotel. This one is Disgusting!!!!

Agaria: Appartment Hotel, Hamburg
This hotel is located in the center of Hamburg, very very close to Hauptbhanhof (Central Railway station). Although I listed it as a hotel, all the rooms are equiped with the kitchenette. Some rooms are of studio type and others are of appartment type. Its cleaned/serviced once a week. The hotel is so clean. Since they do not have many rooms, most of the time its very difficult to find a room in here, so be early. I stayed here for more than 2 months and liked it, I have to move out since the rooms are booked for the spring season.
If you are alone then its a great place to stay, but I do not prefer this area (around Central railway station) for staying with family & kids. Near these streets you will find some street girls, but I never get bothered by them.
Located less than 50mts from the central station.

YoHo - Young Hotel: Special Offer for Young Guests
I think this might be an interesting hotel for young people and those feeling young that do not want to miss comfort. It is not a budget tip but I like the concept of this hotel offering a special rate to people under 26. It's an hotel in an old city house in a central location. There's a restauant included offering Near Eastern cuisine. I did not stay there, of course, but have a look at their website to get an impression. If you stay there let me know it the tip was OK;-)

Hotel Zur Altstadt: 3 stars in HH-Harburg
The name comes from the fact it is in the altstadt (old town) of Hamburg-Harburg. Lots of old fachwerk houses are nearby.
I haven't stayed here personally but since it is down the street from where I live, when people come visit me they stay here. Ive been told that while the rooms are small they are very neat and clean, and the beds are comfortable.
If you have business in Harburg area or are looking for somewhere near the city but yet outside of the city it is a good choice. At the end of the street is an S-bahn stop and only 15-17 minutes to the Hauptbahnhof and Jungfernstieg.
Single rooms are €69 a night.
Budget rental car office right next door.
Wide variety of restaurants across the street (see my tip "Restaurant Row")
S-bahn about 5-8 minute walk

Cap San Diego: Sleeping onboard of an old cargo-ship
Cap San Diego, the old cargo-ship that is docked in the port of Hamburg offers also a few cabins for hotel-guests. There is NO breakfast available onboard and the rooms are certainly also less romantic than e.g. onboard of the "Feuerschiff".
On the other hand there are mostly NO parties and restaurant-activities going on onboard after the last visitors had left the museum-ship in the late afternoon.
You will also have a lot of space out on deck including a swimming-pool, BUT I am not sure if that could be used in summer !
There are several cabins available :
The captains cabin consists of a sleeping-room and a living-room plus a seperate bathroom with bath-tub and toilette:
it is 100 euros for double-use , including a seperate bed for the 2nd person. Breakfast is never included, but in the captains cabin you find find a jug of coffee and some snacks.
ordinary cabins are 80 euros for the double-cabin
and 65 euros for the single cabins
both are without breakfast !

Hotel Die Kogge, bar, DJ music, breakfast: A funky place
Die Kogge was great fun. The rooms are all decorated in a different style, all a little strange really. I chose the most conservative one but look at those curtains! Red veil... Spic and Span though, and comfortable. All rooms are on the second floor, closed off from the bar by many doors. Useful when you find out that the music, DJ or live, goes on until 4 a.m. It didn't bother me since I was usually at the bar until the DJ collapsed.
The owner is a really nice young guy, he cooks the breakfasts until 11 a.m. (now that's better than the Youth Hostel!) and a couple of friendly people come in after 6 p.m. to help him with the crowd of habitués. He let me use the house phone when I needed it, much appreciated. They're also good at giving you your messages when you come in.
Everyone talks to everyone there, and the music rocks! We all sang and danced. There was a most eccentric couple with two teens, on their holiday from Munich. The teens were quiet but the mother and I had a ball making special requests and letting our hair down (well, she was sort of quiet too but loved fun.) She was fully Gothic, stunning look at first, for a mother :-) but she fit right in with the style at Die Kogge.
Outstanding about Die Kogge: great location, you can walk to the Harbour in no time; friendly people; clean, inexpensive rooms; lively place, great music. It felt totally safe and it was never boring. Good beer, coffee, and huge breakfasts made to order.
