Went for birthday. Rooms very comfortable, spa excellent, good view of the city from the roof. Excellent drink at the bar. Very modern hotel, friendly staff, beautiful. bathroom.the best stake in the restaurant. They kept out luggage safe after checkout, since our train was late in the evening. Prompt wake up call. I will definitely visit again.

My girlfriiend and I stayed in Hamburg for lesure and spent 3 nights at the Side. Staff was very polite und supportive. Breakfast is ridiculously expensive, but quality is okay. The room was one hell of a stylish piece of art, but not functional or comfy at all: From the bedroom you could look right through a wall of glass... More

This is an outstanding hotel in a great location in the centre of Hamburg. The hotel is quite jaw dropping the first time you visit with a huge glass atrium and shards of light. On top of this the service at this hotel is second to none with concierge attending to your every whim.

Everything was cool, anyway we had a cheap 2-nights deal, with that in mind can't come up with any complaints, fancy hotel, friendly non-snobbish staff, rooms cleaned twice a day, good spa-department etc, thumbs up! (we actually went april 2015, just didn't review till now...)

Very nice design hotel. The staf are so friendly and professional, from the kind butler greeting you at the entrance to the spa staff. The spa is exquisite. The food provided during and between business meetings is delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you have some money to spend!

We've gone back to Hamburg every second year to celebrate our anniversary, and we've always tried a different top class Hotel. Next time we are going straight back to SIDE. Right from the first impressions created by the understated sophisticated design, to the calm, highly professional and friendly customers service, to the outstanding food - we had a wonderful weekend...

SIDE hotel is a good option for a stay in Hamburg - very centrally located, with good sized rooms, good breakfast and a quirky design side which makes it stand out a little versus competition. Having visited Hamburg a number of times over the past six months for work, I've seen a good number of Hamburg hotels - most of... More

A slightly jaded cool modern hotel but then it is always a risk when you go with trends that are very now as they quickly become very yesterday. The meat freezers in the lobby is not a site vegetarians would enjoy. It is a demonstration of their expertise in cooking steaks!! Room extremely nice with a nice bathroom One point... More

Beautiful hotel! Awesome service, great location, my room was spotless, modern yet warm atmosphere. The spa downstairs was amazing with a great pool. They go out of their way with the small touches, citrus flavored water in the spa, tanning bed, nice gym.
