Very nice and modern hotel. We stayed in the suite which was spacious and nicely decorated. Big and comfortable bed, beautiful design bathroom with everything in it you could need and lots of space. Gym was ok, but TV did not work and the gym is a bit small with limited equipment.

The SIDE Hotel offers you a great experience, by offering great things to do: beautiful bar/restaurant (The Meatery), awesome bar/lounge, gym, spa and pool. Very centrally located, in walking distance from shops, bars & restaurants. Nice staff and beautiful suite!

Trendy place, nice decorated and cool rooms with glass walls surroundingrhe toilet:) Location is great - just 5 min Walk from the Lake. Good restaurants in the area. The hotel is a small but cosy bar.

I stayed at this hotel whilst on a business trip and really thought it was excellent. Very contemporary and well located. I would definitely book this hotel again if and when I return to Hamburg. The staff all seemed to speak exceptionally good English, and all were very pleasant and helpful. The room was of a very high standard and... More

The design of the hotel is very nice although not always the most practical e.g. the light of the bathroom was not easy to find for everybody and the hairdryer was not very easy to handle. The room itself is very nice and very welcoming for couples. If you're not a couple, it could be less practical because there is... More

Ny girlfriend and I spent two nights at Side. Rooms are big and the bed are really good, nice bathroom with bathtub. The pool and spa in the basement is worth a visit or two. Breakfast is served in (M)eatery, the hotels steak restaurant. A very big buffet with everything to can dream of. A good stay in Hamburg.

I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a work trip in March 2015. The location is great close to all the shops and the lake. The hotel is ultra-modern with a very stylish bar. Rooms are spacious and clean. I would recommend this hotel and have to say it is great value for money.

We passed a quality night. The decoration of the room is modern, chic and elegant. The bathroom also was amazing. I really like this sober but modern style: white wall, glass door, squarred tub. In the morning, the breakfast buffet is really great. It's not huge but we can't deny the quality of the product. The fruits were amazingly good... More
