First room smelled like old, cold smoke. The other room was OK. But it took me a couple of minutes to find the light switch in the bathroom. The shower knobs a a mystery. Couldn't manage to let the water out of the tub. The bed linen felt like from a hospital. The elevator was broken this morning. Every interaction... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on a very short trip to Hamburg. I chose the hotel because of it's modern design, location and also because of the on-site restauarant Meatery. Our room was a good size, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was great. However I thought we should have been provided with mineral water... More

Some design hotels are gorgeous at first but after 1year start looking tired but not here. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was large and... More

I stayed at the SIDE-Hotel in Hamburg from Friday to Sunday. The rooms are quiet und spacious. The curtain is thick, so the sun won't wake you up early. You can switch off all the lights from your bed or from the entrance - that's great. The breakfast is great as well. You can go there up to 2 pm.... More

Located near the Alster and the city's shopping district, Side hotel is a classy, urban-chic stylish place. Rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable with modern furniture. Service is very friendly and helpful. Complimentary WiFi, nice spa and indoor-pool. Bar area is very pleasant.

SIDE hotel was very nice. We had a great trip to Hamburg and the hotel did what it should. Comfortable beds and fine service. Although we spent a lot of time in transport, the hotel was placed quiet good.

Hotel is close to city center and has a modern and stylish interior. Service is very good (staff very friendly). Rooms are adequate, bed comfort reasonable (but could be better), bathroom is also okay without being exceptionally comfortable. Hotel has a pleasant restaurant and bar area.
