Unlike so many hotels in Europe, this hotel has broken the shackles of boredom and dated-ness and delivered on being an exceptionally modern hotel with a trendy feel, allowing both the business and holiday traveler to enjoy whats on offer.
The room i first had was superb, very comfortable in size, exceptional finishings and very comfortable queen bed. However after repeated problems accessing the internet, i was "upgraded" without any fuss to a business room that unfortunately had two small double beds, which were still very comfortable but felt like a downgrade after having the queen bed.
The hotel was quiet in general and the staff were very helpful. Its location is very central with lots on offer within short walking distances.
Watch out for the poorly setup front door, its on auto sensors that seem to have a mind of their own.
The attached steak restaurant is superb, just expect to spend a bit more than usual.
The only real trap here is that the online booking made it seem as though the internet was free - IT IS NOT, its a paid for service after a short one-off 1hr access. Not exactly ideal if your a business travel doing emails etc, or a holiday maker trying to communicate with family etc.
- 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
