This hotel is a friendly house. My experience here was excellent! They catch us up at the airport at 1:00 am because my flight was delayed almost two hours. They have done this for free because I stayed more than 3 nights and every goes well since there.the room wasn't big but was very clean and comfortable. The owner had... More

I stayed in Oba Hotel for 4 nights. It was a plesure being hosted in this hotel because the staff was very nice with us and our room was always clean, tidy, smelling good. Besides that, the bathroom had always hot water, which,in my opinion, is quite essencial and in many hotels frequently doesn't happen. The breakfast had always cofee,... More

First of all I would like to say that this is not a hotel, it is more like a nice and intim B&B. The location is about 6-7 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. I stayed five nights for New Year 2015 in a lovely room on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view at a small Mosque. Rooms are... More

The hotel has an excellent location for seeing the main sites of Istanbul, the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar, Haga Sofia, for example are all within easy walking distance. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and the room was small (as advertised) but comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast buffet provided a good range of food, including... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Oba Hotel in Dec 2014. I chose this hotel based on other reviews and was not disappointed. The hospitality was wonderful - the owner even stopped what he was doing one night to run out and find a relative of mine who was in the area but a bit lost. While close... More

We stayed in the Oba Hotel in the first days of January of 2015. It was our first time in Istanbul and the staff was very kind and helpful with tips and orientation about the city. We found the hotel very comfortable, clean, and cute. The location is great because is very near on foot to the Mosques and Museums... More

I was only able to stay in Istanbul one night but my stay at the Oba Hotel was wonderful. The owner was extremely helpful in answering the multitude of questions I asked and suggesting things for me to see. The location is great, just a few minutes' walk from the Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia. Cozy room and wonderful fresh... More

I stayed here for about 4 nights as a solo traveller in October 2014 and chose the hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. I'm a bit conflicted about this review, so bear with me. The positives: the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, especially in terms of getting a first-time visitor oriented to Istanbul and suggesting sights to see based on... More

We stayed in Oba hotel for several days in December and January. It is a small building in a little side street with rooms beautifully decorated, cosy and clean. The bed was very comfortable.

Thank you for your review. That will help us to do better in business. Breakfast is not a main service in hotels in Turkey. It is a complimentary service. Some hotels ask for additional cost. In Turkey, tourists expect more and more. I do not understand. I do not know how to satisfy the guests. Most of them are very... More
