The location of the hotel is very good, within walking distance to most amenities. The rooms are well apointed and fairly confortable. As an English speaking guest I found the TV channels a bit lacking, only about three of the fifty channels are English. The restuarant is pretty good, but after trying for 45 minutes to dail reception for a...

The hotel is conveniently located in the city center of Hamburg, 100 Meter away from Gaensemarkt. Around Gaensemarkt are many bars and restaurants and also shopping for all kind of stuff. The Hotel rooms are very nice, stylish and clean. The hotel staff is super nice and friendly. The hotel bar is reasonably priced and the waiters know their job.

Aircon faulty in my room. Eventually managed a cobbled together fix after 3 attempts. Staff implied it was a common problem, and the speed with which i was offered a fan made this all the more likely. They couldnt move me as the hotel was full. Also, whilst i love the look of hard wood floors, they make no sense...

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
