“Wouldn't stay anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Onur gas been busy 'tarting' place up. New shower heads and taps..painted interiors and exterior walls. He is tireless in preparations.. Probably no one will notice but he has a lot to do to keep the place on an even keel. Side/Turkish hospitality at its best.

Must have a word about switching off the bird song at dawn.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms have best natural light..balcony overlooking garden or rear overlooking Tiyatro..

We stumbled on Onur Pension looking for another place in Side and decided to stay here. The room was small and simple, but there was a small balcony overlooking the ruins. The room was clean and quiet, and the hosts were very friendly. WiFi was great. We woke up at sunrise to tour the ruins and had them almost entirely to ourselves, then returned for a delicious breakfast. -- I would absolutely stay there again.

It has been Bayram during the last week. Turks are just such incredibly social people. It was like Christmas in Onur's. Everyone wants to share something or learn English or just be friendly. Never been here at this time before but glad I made the effort. Breakfast was busy but everyone served and satisfied. Looking forward rto dinner which can be included. Onur is a top chef. Missed his profession. Balik Corba(Fish soup) rivals the best Bouboullaise I have ever tasted. and all for the best part of a shilling with change.
Tonight we get his version of Ragu with pasta(Durum)..looking forward.

Room Tip: Stan and Mo have room 7 when they are here..anywhere else is good. Middle floor have balconies with...

It is difficult to sum up the virtues of Onur's place in a few words. In a world where people want 'all-inclusive' we have lost the personal touch. Onur and his wife Gul have created a little paradise where all your needs are catered for in a friendly but un-intrusive way,
It is the perfect location to experience what is left of the real Eski(Old) Side and more especially the old Side welcome.
You are not a guest you are more a friend, if that is what you want.
if you want all-inclusive go somewhere else and be a unit in the accounts.
If you want real people, intelligent conversation real food, good accommodation in a relaxed unpretentious atmosphere come to Onur's. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Room Tip: All rooms are great but if the sound of birdsong in the morning offends you ask fro earplugs.

It is in a brilliant location, close to all the ruins and the main tourist restaurant/bar hub on the peninsula but yet not in a noisy area. The rooms are reasonably priced considering the pensions' location and include air con. The guy in charge was incredibly friendly and helpful, having lived in England for years his English is flawless. We arrived without a booking looking for a triple room but not surprisingly they were pretty full but the guy put in a large room with two single beds and then set up a camp bed aswell. He also told us how to get to Aspendos without taking an expensive taxi and when we were leaving he helped arrange for us to get the next bus to Nevsehir from Manvagat (saving us having to go to Antalya and then north) and then kindly took us to the bus station in his car so we wouldn't miss the bus. Also the breakfast at the pension is really good and were thoroughly enjoyed by my brothers and I. Many thanks!

This hotel is situated in a very quiet part of Side behind the old theatre, ideally located for the town and the beaches. We were only intending to stay one night but ended up staying for 5 because it was so good. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the welcoming, but informal, atmosphere provided everything you could want. Onur was a wonderful host, his English is perfect and he was very friendly and helpful. It was very good value for money and the food was delicious! It was a very lucky accident that we found this hotel, we will certainly go again and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to stay in Side.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent.

I have stayed at the Onur Motel twice now. The family that run the Onur can speak perfect English and they will go out of their way to made sure that your stay with them is a perfect one. All the rooms are air conditioned and sleep two people three with a good quility fold up bed. Their is also an option to stay in their large apartment this has a double bed and three single beds made up of two rooms together with a kitchen area. Very clean is an under statment with an option to have breakfast if you so wish, their is also a small bar area. The great thing is that it is in side town its self (don't stop outside of the town it will cost you a bomb in taxi's) and side is a great place with genuine people and not much hassle. book it now!!!!!!!!!!
