We have stayed in this hotel few times in the last 5 years. Amazingly, it is still very stylish and very hip. Everything little detail in the hotel is carefully designed. Rooms are also some of the most stylish rooms you will ever come across. Showers in the room are fabulous! Also - breakfast served is absolutely the best. Not to be missed.
Rooms are often spacious and well equipped, though you do need to take some time to learn how to operate the lights in the room / bath and how to locate the garbage dispenser in the bathroom.
My feeling is that often the design took a far more important role than the practicality - room keys do not operate smoothly, bathroom door is a smoked glass, so do not expect any privacy when using the toilets, and once you shave or brush your teeth over the uber hip bathroom sink basin,the whole wooden area around looks quite messy...
Finally - as a premium hotel, which charges quite a lot for 'Executive Rooms', it is always quite a shock to see you need to still pay extra for internet [hello, this is the year 2012 !!!]. We were told we could get 3 X 1 hour free charge but it still seems very cheap and very disgraceful when your room bill is around 300 Euro. And what is most annoying - the hotel claims it is 'not them', it is an exterior supplier. Shame.
Good News - the hotel's restaurant (M)eatery is sublime. Absolutely amazing food. Book a table.
- 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
