Our children had ordered a surprise bottle of champagne to be delivered to our room and the hotel added to the pleasant surprise by providing a complimentary... More

Stayed at the Side Design Hotel for the first time. My colleague and I were visiting the SMM Marine Exhibition at the Messe. The only negative I can state is the A/C is not what most would expect in a hotel of this caliber. The rooms are cooled by sending cool air through piping in the ceilings. Could never get... More

Nice modern hotel, really positive staff very helpful. Famous steak restaurant and good wine choice are available. Popular hotel in a sensible location for central Hamburg. End of the street is a very good Italian (Osteria) with spectacular Pizzas

Nice Hamburg hotel quite centrally located near Gänsemarkt. Unfortunately, there were very annoying issues with the WiFi connection in our room which haven't been fixed during our stay. The designer furniture looks nice but design should not in my opinion interfere with functionality, which unfortunately was the case here: the sink in the bathroom is too small leading to water...

Stayed at the SIDE for three nights - great location close to shops and office areas (for work). The staff are incredibly helpful and made my stay quite comfortable; they even took my special request to have a picture of Alfanso Ribeiro framed in the room 😂 The regular room is quite spacious, German clean! and the bed is comfortable....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As Hamburgs first 5* Superior Design Hotel, SIDE is directly located in the heart of the city. Built by architect Jan Störmer, designed by Matteo Thun and illuminated by Robert Wilson, space and light have been put perfectly in relation to one another. These are the factors, which essentially shape the heart of the hotel and make the SIDE a sensual location for the urban generation of today. The 168 rooms in different categories are minimalist in style, yet welcoming, comfortable and with a personal touch. Ten "flying" suites on the 10th and 11th floor are all decked out in white. A further highlight of the hotel is the Sky Lounge and the roof top terrace on the 8th floor which offer an impressive view over Hamburg. Both are perfect venues for summer parties, events or photo-shootings. On the ground floor, the [m]eatery bar +restaurant serves dry aged steaks, different self-made burgers and special tartars. Colourblocking is a key theme in the SIDE SPA. This wellness oasis is refreshingly colourful and luxuriously furnished ... more   less
