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.

The Modern SIDE Hotel is in a convenient location and allows for easy exploration of the city. The rooms are well maintained. The modern design of the room can be a bit akward and doesn't have a relaxing feel to it. The mirrors are in the stylized closets, the squarish shaped toilet seat is reminiscent of an out-house. The sliding... More

I stayed on a two night business trip. The initial greeting revealed that the SPA area was under construction, which meant no gym, no pool, no sauna, no treatments. I could go to the Marriott down the road they told me. Guys, just make a small temporary gym and try to accommodate your guests. Or, if you really have to... More

A small off the beaten path hotel that has great character and is within easy walking distance to the main shopping districts and the centre of town. Located on a small quiet road that is a 5-10 minute walk from the main shopping district and St. Peter's Church. Also, an excellent steak house on the GF.

Stayed at the Side Hotel for a week on business, and found it was a great location and amenities. Rooms are spacious, and equipped with the necessities. The pool in the basement is heated, with a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi along with a small gym! The bar is well stocked and has a nice atmosphere, recommend a drink and... More
