John and I stayed for 4 nights at the start of our Turkish trip and could not have had a better place to stay. As others have said the location is perfect for sightseeing. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent but the icing on the cake was the roof terrace with spectacular views of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya etc. Staff were friendly and helpful. One member of staff went out of his way to advise us about bus travel when we were moving on. Access to computer in the hotel was very useful for those like us travelling without laptops. All in all I can recommend Side Hotel highly.
