Rooms & Rates
SIDE Hamburg is a chic 5-star design hotel on the northern fringes of Hamburg city centre, with views of Lake Alster from its upper floors. The glass-fronted building is halfway between the shops on Gänsemarkt and the Opera House, among old warehouses and modern glass offices. It's popular with business travellers, but there's plenty to please leisure travellers, including an indulgent late breakfast served until 2pm at the weekends.
The property is a 6-minute walk from the lakefront, where there is a path around the lake that is great for running (the hotel can provide jogging maps). City-centre sights like the Kunsthalle art gallery and Hamburg Museum can be reached in 16 minutes by foot. The area has good public transport connections too -- it's three minutes' walk to the nearest U-Bahn station, and nine minutes to Jungfernstieg S-Bahn station, which provides direct transfers to the airport in 40 minutes.
The hotel’s Michelin Guide-listed [m]eatery bar + restaurant is a hot pick for a hearty steak. The dining room is an elegant, modern space with wood-panelled walls and bold green chairs. There's a choice of Argentinean, German or American meat, and diners can take their pick from different cuts of raw beef brought to the table by the serving staff. Hidden in the basement is a colourful spa, open until 11pm daily, which includes a full-size pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room and a gym, as well as a treatment room for massages. Guests can also make use of the stylish 8th-floor sky lounge, which has excellent views of the surrounding docks.
The Daily Telegraph describes the bedrooms as "stylish and unfussy", with stained-wood floorboards and oatmeal-coloured drapes. The "commodious, snazzy" (Frommer's) bathrooms have glass sinks and are separated from the sleeping area by a frosted-glass wall. All rooms have free Wi-Fi; Business and Executive rooms also have Nespresso machines, and the latter has a kitchenette and a bathroom with a rainfall shower and bath. Suites on the 10th and 11th floors afford excellent views.
