The owner was terrific and very welcoming. The staff was very flexible and accommodating as a large group gathered in the breakfast room. They had to improvise seating and serve everyone who needed to eat at the same time. Charming place, clean, heavy ambiance, great location, wonderful food and many tips for the newcomer. We loved it.

We stayed here in mid-June. Our room was modern, well kept and clean. The breakfast selection was amazing! The hotel is a close walk to the Blue Mosque, Hajia Sofia and Topkapi Palace as well as the train stop. This made navigating the city very easy. The owner was very nice and accommodating. He gave us a map with all... More

We stayed here as a couple for one week in early July 2014, on holiday. It was our first time in Istanbul. The comments in other reviews reflect our experience, which was overwhelmingly positive. We had the owner (Ismail) arrange our transport from the airport, which was a great welcome to Istanbul. The hotel is small, friendly, and charmingly located... More

What a great time we've had at Oba Hotel. We spent a week here in June and saw much of what Istanbul has to offer. Ismail welcomed us early in the morning and gave us a thorough talk about what to do and when to do it. He remained extremely helpful throughout our stay and was always able to offer... More

Sultanahmet is the heart of Istanbul. OBA has been my favourite place located in a secret, well preserved part of 'living ottoman' quarter, just minutes to all happenings. More importantly, I felt like at home as it is operated by a wonderful, helpful family with amazing breakfast. I could not ask more! I sure will return and strongly recommend to... More

The hospitality was wonderful and all of the Oba Hotel's family was involved in making our stay wonderful! What a lovely bonus, because the hotel is located in the Sultanahmet neighborhood of Istanbul and on the edge of a traditional Turkish neighborhood. This includes a nice, quiet street with just a few sweet Turkish families! The rooms were lovely and... More

We stayed here for our last night in Istanbul after returning from an overnight tour of Gallipoli. It is located in a quiet street but near all of the main attractions. We arrived late at night (around 9pm) and were glad to find restaurants close by as we weren't too keen to venture far. The owners/managers are lovely and very... More

My mom and I stayed 5 nights in Istanbul and had a wonderful time lodging at Oba Hotel. As other reviewers have stated, the location of the hotel is great, with so many landmarks and must-see attractions just a few minutes away by foot. The managers of the hotel were very accommodating and helpful and pointed us to restaurants and... More

A small nice an quiet hotel in the old part of Istanbul. Nice and clean rooms, and a good atmosphere, in family like style. We felt welcome at all times - even when we arrived late at night after exploring Istanbul's nightlife. Highly recommended hotel.
