In Blankenese, Hamburg shows its most paradisiacal side: the Elbe and miles of natural beach on the doorstep. In the former fishing village you leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind you. Here you spend your holidays as if you were far away, whether privately or on a business trip. Our beach hotel was built in 1902 and is a small architectural jewel. Our 16 rooms are individually designed and bring comfort and design to the point. On our terrace you have the most beautiful view and will be spoiled with small delicacies as you wish. Exactly the right place for relaxed holidays near the city.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

POSITIVE Very nice location right by the river where you can watch cruise ships and big container vessels going in and out of the harbour. Nice for walking around in the neighbourhood (Treppenviertel). NEGATIVE Where to start.... When we checked in we were told that as default rooms are being cleaned every other day. We stayed two nights, so the only standard cleaning would have been on the day of our departure. Our room got cleaned after the first night, the room of our friends didn't. A broken shower didn't fixed. The mini bars were all empty, which is especially annoying if the staff leaves the hotel at 9pm which means no more bar service either. No information whatsoever on wifi code, breakfast hours, public transportation etc on check-in. We asked for wifi details on day 2 and got a code that didn't work. So back to the front desk, where the guy in charge first replied 'Well it works on my phone' before he tried it himself on our phone and learned that it did NOT work. He promised to take care of it and come back to us. Never saw him again. The list goes on, but I guess you get the picture by now.

single rooms are extremely small ( these look like storerooms turned into a bedroom ), they are dirty and they smell smell very strange, no conditionning and leaks. The interior of the hotel is very poorly serviced and smells badly in general, looks so bad that you would be afraid to sit on the sofa at the entrance. It is very noisy in general. The service and some employees are impolite and in the evening it turns into a ghost house ( maybe better for customers not too face poor service ). Very hard to access and the parking outside is not maintained. Only positive is Elbe view and the outside looks cool if you want some selfies... but for the outrageously high prices for that kind of storeroom and cheap furnitures better you look for other hotels in blankenese or Hamburg with amazing views.

Beautiful location, beautiful building, but needs a lot of TLC before it’s worth the price. Positive: - staff, all great and very friendly - bed - location/view (if you have the right room) Negative: - price/performance ratio - offer of Bulgari on the site, but we got some cheap general stuff - carpets on the floor, quite “dark” feeling - room smelled strange So, after an extensive renovation and a reduction of the price, we would consider to return

My husband and I stayed in a double room last year and it was fantastic! We had everything we needed however we recently stayed in a budget double room and this has turned us off coming back! Although everything was clean, it wasn’t actually located in the building but instead in a smaller building at the back of the hotel, it was a very small room and didn’t come with basics like a kettle or tissues! When I asked for a box of tissues for my daughter who was unwell, I was told they don’t have any. I understand we booked a budget room however for a 4.5* hotel I would have expected some of the standard items that you’d expect to find in almost any other hotel. The staff were nice but not as friendly as last time. The hotel is beautifully located right by the water and a great location for walks!

Looking to large ships while enjoying a tasteful cup of coffee or tea is the highlight of this location. Especially recommendable is the Rhubarb Meringue Tart (Rhabarber Baiser Torte). The staff is a bit stiff but quick.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Have been in Hamburg many times for business but decided this time to stay a bit outside the bustle of the inner city. I'm glad I did. The most striking facet of the hotel was the friendliness of the staff. They were super helpful whenever I needed anything. What sets this hotel apart in my mind is, well, it's a white castle on a beach with a view of passing cruise ships the likes of Queen Mary or Aida right in front of your nose. Also, the beautiful area of downhill Blankenese makes for a runners paradise. I ran each morning along the water and gorgeous houses. What is weird but so cool is that while on the outside this hotel is all luxurious old money Blankenese beauty, the inside is a designer hotel where one might think they're in Soho, NYC. Incredibly chic and comfortable room. I already booked my next stay as I left. Will in the future be staying here when business takes me to Hamburg - jack

A truly fantastic, family run hotel. What did we like besides the location (right next to the beach)? Great clean modern room with nice bathroom and Bulgari cosmetics, really soft towels and River view. Fantastic breakfast (fresh cut fruit salad with exotic fruits, nice omelette, fresh orange juice, huge tea selection - 12 varieties - and nice coffee. Wonderful hotel interior. And last but not least: a truly familiar, cordial atmosphere (I was even offered head lights because I went running in the dark). My personal view: it is hard to find a better boutique hotel. I will definitely come back to Strandhotel Blankenese instead of going to Clipper Elb Lodge or Hotel Hafen Hamburg.

we did not stay at the hotel, but it was a good surprise to discover the renovated bar-restaurant with limited - basic cuisine. Extremely relax and cosy atmosphere ; the ideal place for an afternoon tea or a classy drink.

My husband and I were invited to a 50th birthday party in Blankenese and this hotel was suggested to us! What a lovely boutique hotel based by the Elba! A grand looking building with a warm welcome was our first impression and a good start! We arrived early and the hotel looked after our luggage and ensured it was placed in our room for when we returned later! Room 8 on the top floor - there are no lifts! Had a beautiful view over the Elba and we enjoyed watching cargo moving up and down the river. Breakfast is continental style and served between 07.30 and 13.00 at the weekend! Key cards are unmarked and used for the main door (after 21.00) and rooms! We were only given one card - perhaps providing two would be better! The hotel was warm - in public areas in particular! A fantastic location if you want to be by the water but a walk to the centre of town! Taxis cost about 13.00€ - there is a snellbus - not sure how good or cost! The hotel is slightly overpriced in my view but that comes from the location by the river and Blankenese!

We stayed at this hotel in August of 2015. I was underwhelmed. PROS: Location, as long as you don't have too many plans in Hamburg, which is far away (at least 30 mins by taxi). It's at the end of the main beach street in the suburb of Blankenese, offering lovely views of the river and a nice strip of beach. It's relatively quiet. One can walk to local restaurants or (up, up, up) to public transportation to go in to Hamburg (a 10-15 minute walk, somewhat strenuous, especially in heels). Taxis are readily available and expensive. CONS: The rooms are small. The carpet in our room was stained from water that had come in through the window. The bathrooms are tiny and have no outlets, and the showers are of a "modern design" that has no closing door, meaning that water streams onto the bathroom floor when you shower. No bathtubs. The bathrooms are TINY and two people can't stand in them at once. We stayed in the hotel during a heat wave. It was sweltering! There was no air conditioning and no offer of fans, although the concierge had one blowing at her desk (and did not offer it to her panting, sweaty guests). Service was lackluster and the internet free but very, very inefficient (low range and very low speed). They offer amenities like bicycles to guests, but charge for their use; indeed, there is a fee for EVERYTHING in this hotel. On my last morning I had a quick cup of coffee before leaving for the airport, and 4 Euros was added to my bill. I am accustomed to staying in nicer hotels, and usually expect a coffee and tea station to be free of charge and accessible throughout the day to guests. Not so at the Blankenese. Given the room rate, I was disappointed that they nickeled and dimed everything else. Breakfast was delicious (an offer of eggs with a choice of meat, as well as an ample buffet of cheeses, sweet and savory spreads, jams, fruit, yogurt, etc - a pretty typical German fare) but again, $$$. All in all I would not stay here again, especially if planning to see the sights in Hamburg.
