The side hotel in Hamburg is very beautiful. The rooms are very bright and modern and also very comfy. But the bathroom area is not very private so you should travel alone or with your family. The hotel itself is huge and you always have to wait for the escalator, which was very anoying so i often took the employee... More

We visited Hamburg with our son earlier this month for the first time and very much enjoyed it. When I contacted the hotel prior to our stay they provided us with great sites to visit. The staff we came in contact with were very hospitable and caring. They were very accommodating to our son's needs and they connected with him... More

A recent business trip was organized in Hotel Side in Hamburg. At the airport the Taxi driver said, it's the best hotel in Hamburg. I heard from my colleagues this was a design hotel, and so it was. I'm a fan of design, but it needs to be functional and that was not the case in Hotel Side. The bed... More

If you want a bit of peace and quiet at night, take my advice and avoid this hotel. An awful howling noise will be coming on every 7-10 min., keeping you awake all night. The staff, pretending they are totally unaware of this problem, will be putting you in other rooms, but to no avail. It is a systemic issue,... More

A very nice and fancy hotel. Excellent breakfast. The beds were crap though; extremely hard mattress. The pillows were exactly the opposite - extremely soft. I would give it 5 star if It wasn't for the beds.

I spent for nights at the side hotel and would recommend it to anyone who is traveling to hamburg! It's pretty central and its style is just great. Rooms were always clean and I thought the room design was really speciall (glass window from the bathroom into the main room). The gym and the pool area were also really nice... More

I booked through Expedia.com. I had a bad start with Side Hotel receptionist as soon as I arrived there. The receptionist cannot find my booking by searching my firstname and lastname. It took them quite a while to find out my booking. I used Expedia for a few hotel bookings. I never seen like this before. The free wifi Internet... More

We stayed with my wife and 2,5yo daughter in an 8th floor room, which had very nice design and adequate space, nice cosmetics, but a poorly working shower - not enough to complaint though. The room was serviced twice a day, though the towel / bathrobes changing frequency seemed to vary. The spa area was very nice, and fitting to... More

Let's start with the good: fantastic location - close to the major sites, restaurants and great shopping. The rooms are large for European standards, very modern, and the bed and pillows extremely comfortable. The hotel is stylish and beautiful. Everything was super clean! The breakfast is excellent with a wonderful selection for even a celiac like myself, but I believe... More
