We stayed for 2 nights in January 2012. We were very impressed with the architectural design- the rooms and hotel are absolutely stunning. We did have have difficulty getting connecting rooms for our teenage children and they ended up having to stay on a different floor to us. We booked "business rooms" as we were told they could connect, but that didnt appear to be the case once we got there? It ended up ok, but it was an inconvenience.
We also booked with Expedia and got a good rate including breakfast -at checkout they tried to charge us for breakfast. Luckily, I had the print out from Expedia, which they called in a supervisor to review but they eventually honoured it. The breakfast was unbelievable and we would highly recommend getting it included if you can (it costs about 23 Euros if you don't). You can create your own cereal, pancakes, bacon, eggs made to order, yoghurt, fruit, cheese, breads etc etc. Never seen anything like it!
The LOCATION is pretty good in that it is very close to the main shopping strips, walking distance to the Rathaus (town hall), St Nikolas church, etc etc. In fact, we were able to walk everywhere. It was very cold and wet when we were there so a boat trip was ruled out, but hot chocolate and berlina buns ruled in! ("Dat Bakhaus" bakeries are located everywhere and are CHEAP!)
The only issue for us (which is nothing to do with the hotel) is that we couldnt walk to the train station for the train trip to Berlin. Its 1.5km and too trickly to walk, so we had to catch a taxi (and the 6 euro journey didnt please the driver).

I often stay at this hotel when I go on business trips to Hamburg, and so far have never been disappointed. The hotel is quite typical boutique - clean, slick design, compact rooms with funky 60s design chique interior, cool bathroom with a nice rain shower (that took me about 10 minutes to figure out how to turn it on!) and all the usual amenities. The service is friendly and efficient. I did not have breakfast at the hotel, so I cannot comment on that. Overall, I think is it a great hotel equipped to a high standard in a good location.

What always blows me away though at the Side hotel is the (M)Eatery restaurant. It is one of Hamburg's best steak restaurants, quite upmarket with matching prices, but excellent, excellent steaks. I recommend the Argentine filet mignon which is melt in the mouth (quite small though) with a side of potato gratin. Mmmmm!! Spectacular. The deserts are rather disappointing, so don't bother with that - the steaks are the highlight. The service is impeccable as well, with very attentive staff. It is advisable to reserve in advance, particularly if trying to get a table Thursday - Saturday. Even when if you don't stay at the Side, the (M)Eatery is well worth a visit.

Stayed two nights in Side when visiting the Christmas markets in Hamburg. This is a nice and modern hotel, ordinary sized rooms with a little bit firm matresses.

Modern style with glassdoors to the bathroom, bad soundproofing though between the bathroom and the sleeping room.

Quiet location but still very central. The nearest market was only a few minuttes away, and all the other markets and shopping areas were in walking distance from the hotel.

Very nice people at the reception, good service always with a smile. Would stay again if in Hamburg.

A hotel with cool design on the inside but somewhat boring outside. If the rooms were warm and the spa area not cold it would be even better.
The hotel is close to both U-Bahn and high street stores.
Room have heavy doors and windows insulate against any street noise.
Excellent service and very helpful personnel.

Room Tip: Any room is good in this hotel. We had one on the third level and it was quiet and nice.
