We stayed in the pension side of this hotel for close to a week. The front desk staff were always friendly and accomodating. My favorite feature about the hotel was its centrality to all the top Istanbul sights and the tram (which you could essentially take to any other part of Istanbul).
Average but clean. The cleaning lady would come in daily to clean our rooms and did a pretty good job. Nothing special to write home about but comfortable enough for a good nights sleep. There is also WiFi in the rooms so it was nice to be able to skype at home at the end of the day.
Great. Not too much variety but enough to keep you full till lunch while out on our sightseeing adventures. I actually like the fact that its protein heavy with eggs and lots of veggies/olives. Also love the rooftop view. We sat on the highest rooftop and got to view the water on one side and Ayasofya/Blue Mosque on the other.
Fantastic! Everything was so central to us. Catching the tram for 2TL was the best when we wanted to go to other parts of Istanbul. Also the local buses were very accessible but best was just walking around and seeing the city from an everyday perspective.
Overall, I would highly recommend staying at Side Hotel and Pension cause the price is much more affordable than hotels around. Especially with the Four Seasons only about 2 doors down. You'll get the bang for your buck.
