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

Looking on pictures before arrive a hotel and then compare with reality can make you disappointed sometimes. This hotel is located in a narrow street with no special view but the hotel is good. I was living in a suite which was really nice and comfortable with a bed that was good for me. Location is also good with walking... More

I visited the hotel during a business trip. I had a corner suite which was absolutely perfect. So was the location in the city center As I had to work the work space in the living room had a perfect size. Bed is nice and the room works fine. The WIFI is bad and you have to pay for it... More

Very Good hotel, Very good rooms, good location (not great) - about 1-2 km's to everything. Cool thing that you get bikes in the hotel for free. Make sure to notice that the breakfast buffet has extra's you can get without extra cost. Lastly make no mistake, although 5 star rated, there is still a level above.

We planned our first wedding anniversary in Hamburg and wanted to give a go to a modern and luxurious hotel like the side to make the experience unforgettable. Unfortunately so was it, but for the wrong reasons. When we arrived we waited more than 5 minutes in the front desk while three (3!!) workers organized papers and attended the phone.... More

This is my third stay at the Side in 18 months. It is a wonderfully run and well located hotel. We enjoyed dining at the Meatery Restaurant (we ate at the bar). The hotel is lively and fun and a meeting point for locals and visitors alike. The location cannot be beat, as it is right at the center of... More

So I booked a double room in this hotel based on the good reviews and the photos I saw. The place is really cool and very clean, the hotel is within a walking distance from almost everything. There is a metro station and a bus station nearby. The indoor pool and fitness center are very clean. The rooms are nice... More

Brilliant location, walking distance to the nicest shopping and dining district Staff are really helpful, and generally the hotel has a great vibe - it's managed to deliver a great combination of efficiency and style, without being to 'cool' and superficial. The rooms are great: large beds, full window shutter, lots of storage, good bathroom accessories. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here for 3 days recently on our first visit to Hamburg. I could not fault the Side. It was perfectly positioned for all the Hamburg sights, the room was perfect, spacious and clean and the swimming pool/Fitness Room was much cleaner and well maintained than in many city hotels. Breakfast was a delight and the staff were helpful,... More

If you head to Germany for old fashioned charm or rustic ambiance, this is not the place, but if you like modern architecture and design, it is hard to beat Side in Hamburg. They call themselves a 5-star hotel in design and I would agree. I love modern design and so I loved every minute I spent here…well almost every... More
