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

I have stayed at the SIDE on a couple of business trips, and would definitely recommend it. The style is clean and functional, the rooms are a good size, well appointed and very comfortable. In the evening the restaurant is good and the bar fine for a night cap, friendly staff and a good range of drinks. Location-wise it is... More

What a great hotel and a little gem for business or pleasure. It's beautifully designed throughout with a good bar and restaurant. I was on the 9th floor and the room was super modern with a great shower, fully stocked mini-bar and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very German (well it would be!) and had a great selection of cheese,... More
