Nice hotel, centrally located and close to public transport. Lovely reception area nice furniture, room a bit small for the price - seems to be an office block which has been converted into a hotel. When we were there Drebahn was a building site, so rather noisy. Would recommend this hotel to others.

Due to stay here for 3 weeks and so far all is good; room is clean and very 'sharp' as far as design, layout etc. is concerned. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good location, reasonable room rate and service in the bar / restaurant.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

I stayed with my girlfriend in this hotel for 3 nights. We looked at the reviews and pics and thought it would be the best choice.
Our executive room was small and dark so we upgraded to a junior suite with an extra 50 Euros fee per day. The junior suite was ok. The hotel had a good design and average service. Location is not bad. The view, which is the same for all rooms, was rather depressing looking at the back of nearby buildings. Just cement! Even in a sunny day this hotel lucks in atmosphere. I guess this is less important if it's winter..
You have to pay for internet and be aware: they charge more than 5 euros for a small bottle of water from the mini bar...!!! Ridiculous!
Overall there is nothing exciting about this hotel and I wouldn't recommend it

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
