Nice breakfast, nice location.. Great service, and a nice roof terrace at which the bar seamed kinda closed when we were there. The toilets design is a little wierd, but you'll get used to it. The Bars serves a great variety of drinks, and the ones not on the menu were made uppon request.

People were great so is location. The spa/swimming pool is very loud with the constant noise of water and the shower was quite bad. A rain shower is supposed to give a warm soft shower. This one was more like needle pins

Great service, fantastic location, lovely atmosphere. But not what you aspect of a five stars hotel. Super cleaning, but in consideration of a design hotel I could find more interesting places to go..

We have been in Hamburg 8-10 times and this time we booked the hotel Side due to recommodations, We had 3 rooms. Location, front desk and bar were fine. The restauranat were below average and the Spa wasn't worth a visit. We had visited the restaurant before and last time the restaurant was very good. This time 3 of the...

This hotel is as cold clean and cool as the rest of Hamburg. The spa was too chilly to our taste but this fits with the style... Nice rooms and VERY nice breakfast and steak reataurant. Nice bathrooms.

Very comfortable room with all possibly needed facilities. Nice pool (and wellness and gym facilities). The breakfast was really outstanding. A very broad choice with lots of fresh fruits to have a healthy breakfast.

I've been staying here for many years, but just one time per year for an annual conference at the Messe. No doubt, the original design is interesting, the service is consistent and predictable, and the restaurant and bar are excellent. The proximity to the Messe can't be beat. But it might be time for a room refresh. The carpets, furniture,...

This is our second year staying at the Side and love it again, sure we will be back for a third. Service, staff, facilities (gym, sauna, pool, massage), food are all terrific. Given the option of a traditional 5 star, we would still insist on coming back here instead!

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
