The Only 5-Star Design Hotel in Hamburg

Serving the Best Steaks in the City

SIDE Hamburg is the first and only 5-star superior design hotel in Hamburg. It combines wellness, luxury, and design in a modern, eleven-story glass and natural stone building, designed by the famed architect Matteo Thun.

There is an sky lounge for views over the city, and an international breakfast offered at Breakfast InSIDE, offering healthy meals, a variety of egg dishes, Italian coffee, teas, and freshly squeezed juices. The [m]eater restaurant serves top-quality steaks from Argentina, the USA, and Europe. Their old, traditional process of ripening whole sirloins in a glass dry aging box has earned them reputation of having the best steaks in Hamburg.

Secure a Suite with a Steam Bath

The hotel features 178 luxurious rooms, ranging from superior to business, executive, and suites. The rooms have a classic, yet modern design with high-quality furniture. Amenities include televisions with free Sky channels, free Wi-Fi, and a minibar.  Business and executive rooms come with espresso machines, and some suites have steam baths. For a good night’s sleep, request a room higher up, avoiding noise from the bar and offering the best views. Be sure to specify beforehand if you’ll need consistent high-speed Internet access because some rooms have spotty Wi-Fi. 24-hour room service is available.

High End Wellness in the Heart of Downtown

SIDE Hamburg holds 450 square meters of health and beauty facilities, separated into four different color blocks representing different states of wellness. The yellow treatment rooms embody a state of well-being, where one can indulge in massages, facials, and full body treatments. The green shower and solarium area represents refreshment. The orange fitness area releases energy, with state-of-the-art workout equipment. The blue area stands for water, where one can find the pool and jacuzzi area. 

The hotel is located in the heart of Hamburg, only 300 meters from the city center. It is close to the inner Alster Lake, between the Gänsemarkt and the opera house. Within walking distance you can reach many tourist highlights, the shopping arcade, Hamburg’s congress center, and the Dammtor train station. 

The Bottom Line

The SIDE hotel is perfect for those desiring a central location, with a cool, designer, luxury feel. The concierge is available to help with show tickets, babysitting arrangements, car rentals, and laundry and dry cleaning services. There are 96 parking spaces for those arriving by car.
