Side

This hotel is conveniently located in Side, and offers easy access to the area's must see destinations. There are public transportation links next to the hotel and it is 15 m to the nearest restaurants, bars and shops, and approximately 950 m to Altinkum beach. It is the same distance from the amphitheatre and the museum at the entrance to Side and about 700 m from the nearest nightspots and the Temple of Apollo. Manavgat is some 2 km away, the Manavgat Waterfalls are approximately 4 km away.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Not an all inclusive hotel

Dirty hotel.clean towels and pillowcases only once in ten days only because we complained.variations of chicken OR meatballs for hot food.rehashed old food next day. Only one type of unknown brand of beer or red or white wine offered unless you pay.no snacks available.this is not a good or all inclusive hotel. I have visited Turkey for 20 years and stayed in Turkish 3 star better than this...

I have photos to back my review. Hotel primarily catered for Russians so we struggled for food of our taste.pool area good with clean pool. Dinners old.fell through one held together with cable ties.staff ok.not too far to old town or market.old town breathtakingly at night.most cab trips are 30 lira.generally side is more expensive than other parts of Turkey I have visited.saving grace for us was opened her next to hotel. Good good and staff excellent music. We won't use this hotel again but will possibly revisit side.

Could have been good

Review by 147RunaS Tonsberg, Norway

On arrival the apartment looked really nice - plenty space, balconies on all sides, TV, aircon, lots of storage space...

My suspicion awoke when I opened the first drawer and found whatever the last inhabitant had left of dust and debris. According to boocking information the rooms should be cleaned daily, the towels and bed linen changed 3 times/week. I arrived Saturday early afternoon - my rooms were cleaned first time the following Wednesday. (This after repetedly reminding disinterrested management of the fact.) Linens were changed 4 times during a 34 days stay...

At one occation no cleaner entered for 5 consecutive days. I don't want to be gross, just say that for obvious reasons I stopped using the bin in the bathroom. Nor was I ever tempted to try the breakfast on offer.

When I say cleaning, please do not confuse that with the apartment ever reaching the state of clean.

  • The window panes could be used as notice boards.
  • The balconies were never cleaned. Not even after two rounds of rain.
  • Creepy crawlies in cupboards.
  • Dust on various surfaces never being touched (except by yours truly)

As I repeatedly mentioned the situation to the manager (during the first couple of weeks, that is. After that I just gave up.) he adopted a most bizzare attitude. Walking away without answering or just smiling to a point over my head. He and his wife also had a hard time even saying "Good Morning" or "Hello" without my greeting them first. (I am not beyond testing the fact.) Highly unprofessional.

Good points: Location cose to everything. Pool and garden look fine (never tested). Kelly in the reseption. She is amazing ; calm, friendly and helpful in every situation.

I have travelled to Turkey for years. Hotel Summer Rose is in a class of its own as concerns dirt, dust and unhelpful management.

Reasons for not leaving during first week: My stay was pre payed. Location is perfect for me. I spent a minimum of time in my rooms. So if anyone should consider this hotel - please make sure to pay on departure !

Nice Place To Stay.

Even though we arrived in the early hours we were met with a friendly welcome from the night manager. Initialy there was a mix up with our room but this was resolved very quickly the following morning and we were shown to the one bedroom apartment we had booked. The apartment was very clean and spacious, consisting of a twin bedroom, a lounge area with a bed settee and kitchenette with basic utensils, but which included a fridge and electric kettle...

The were two balconies and a bathroom with a shower cubicle which we appreciated having previously stayed in turkish hotels where the bathrooms are a wet room and everything in them can get soaked when you have a shower if you are not too careful. We were given fresh towels every couple of days and there was always plenty of hot water.

Ouside there are well kept gardens with pleasant shrubs and a very clean looking swimming pool, although we did not try it as due us being there late in the season the water was a little cold for our liking.

The hotel is located in an area about 1 km from Side old town which takes about half an hour to walk to, or you can get a a taxi there for 17 lire (approximately £3.50) there is also a dolmus which goes past the hotel but this did not seem to be running very frequently when we were there possibly due to it being late in the season. If you want to go to the beach there is a free minibus service run by one of the bars on the beach which calls at the hotel at around 10.00am and returns at around 4.00pm. There are plenty of good bars and restaurants in the imediate vicinity of the hotel as well as small shops which were very useful for buying our breakfast provisions from.

All in all I would highly recomend this hotel if you are looking for a reasonably priced stay in Side. It is a 3 star hotel but we feel it offers excellent value for money. Finally a big thank you to the owner and staff for making our stay so pleasant. We will definately be returning next year
