    I've stayed at the Side five times over the past ten years & have, obviously, always found it to be a most pleasant place to stay. Not expensive considering it's right in the centre of the Sultanahmet & so close to all the main attractions....More

    I found the Side to be clean and comfodable. I came across the rude staff member only once but just ignored him. The rest of the staff were great. The two brothers who own the place are very helpful and greet you with a smile...More
