Nothing seemed like too much for them- we needed... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of July. And really had a fantastic time. The location is prefect, as easy walking distance to all the major historical sites, and with a lot of fantastic restaurants around. Ismail, the hotel owner, was so helpful and accommodating. He helped arrange our tour guide, as well as giving great recommendations for... More

Location of hotel is in the old city and takes around 10mins to walk to major attractions such as Blue Mosque Haghia Sophia, and 5mins to tram station but requires a bit of climbing up the hill. Rooms are clean and in a quiet district and offers... More

The beds were comfortable. Best of all, they had us on the 4th floor (walkup) when we first arrived but moved us down to the 2nd... More

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
