The SIDE hotel is in an good location for the cIty centre, but for the money I thought the room was a bit small, no tea/coffe facilites and a view of a building site.
There was fruit in our room, unfortuantely it was not ripe enough to eat. We were also supplied a bottle of filtered water, but this was not replaced for the second nights stay.
The bed was comfortable and the room was incredibley quiet.
Towels were of good quality and the bath/shower was excellent.
We didn't have breakfast as it was €25 which seems extortionate, but we had a drink in the bar which was nice.
There is a lovely lounge on the 8th floor and a roof terrace, but it was too cold to really use it when we were there.
The hotel offers free use of PC/Mac and printer which was very useful to print my boarding pass. There is also free 1hour a day wifi.
My boyfriend used the gym and the pool, and he said the pool was nice but the gym was adequate but as all the manchines only had instruction in German it was a bit of a challenge!
The staff were very helpful, and the place looks lovely in all the communal areas, my only major gripes was the size of the room and the view of a building site, whioch was a bit if a letdown dfor £150 a night.

This hotel combines top standards with relaxing and laid back atmosphere. Its located very close to the center just across from the opera. The staff is very polite and down to earth. The always aim to please. The bar and restaurant is very nice, and the atmosphere late in the evening is very good with a perfect lounge mood.
We are already looking forward to our next stay.

We were originally checked in to the Raddison which is right next to the conference centre, but this was being renovated and so got relocated here.It's an easy 10' walk to the conference centre.
The hotel staff were good, but main gripe is the decor...cold and impersonal lobby and rooms were distinctly functional. Internet at 21euro a day is an absolute rip-off. Shower is designed to spray on the floor( !), the modern basin plug doesn't work and the light switches are almost impossible to find. There are no curtains and light is controlled by an externally controlled blind - this is not very effective and the room was not able to be fully darkened.These points were shared by a number of delegates to my conference.
We visited a couple of other hotels in the area and these had a much better ambiance.

This is hotel is a great choice if you like contemporary design and would like to stay in the heart of Hamburg, especially over the weekend. During weekends the breakfast buffet is open until 14:00 hrs and you can ask for a late check-out until 20:00 hrs on Sunday.
We paid a bit more than 300 € for two nights (Fri to Sun) in a deluxe room for two people, including breakfast (booked via Expedia.de). This was less than on the hotel's website and an overall decent price given the extra perks (deluxe room, breakfast, late check-out).

At this price I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Pros:
- The hotel has very modern and elegant rooms.
- The location is excellent, many interesting areas can be reached on foot, public transportation is just around the corner. The hotel is located on a rather quiet street.
- The breakfast buffet is excellent. Many choices, high-quality selection.
- The hotel offers a nice patio and a lounge area on the 8th floor.
- 1 hr free WLAN per day
- Late check-out until 20:00 hrs (8 pm) on Sun
- Breakfast until 14:00 hrs on Sat, Sun
- The pool/sauna area and the gym are small but absolutely sufficient and well taken care of.
- The staff was friendly and helpful during our stay.
- Free daily newspaper (FT or Die Welt)

Cons:
- The high-quality materials (hardwoods floors etc.) in the rooms are high maintenance and show a bit wear and tear.
- Small CRT TV with worn out remote
- No iron available to customers, ironing is 5 € per shirt.
- Parking is 20 € per day.
- Our hairdryer was broken, but a new one was delivered quickly.
- Storage space for clothes a bit impractical, but OK for short stay.
- Most (if not all) regular rooms do not offer a great view.

I found the hotel on Internet and read other reviews. Based on those I booked the hotel and was not disappointed! There were so many small details that really impressed me. Like the small maps I was given when asking where I should go for running. And the Nespresso machine in the room.

As Hamburgs first 5* 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. 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.
