The hotel is located within walking distance (a brief, but steep hill) from major attractions (Ayasofia, the Blue Mosque), the hippodrome and around the corner from the underrated jewel of Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Mosque. The staff is very friendly and useful. We felt like in the guest bedroom (en suite with all amenities, including a fast, reliable internet connection) of... More

I am a frequent flyer and have been traveling around the world quite often. I stayed in B&B's and 5-star hotels. But I have never seen the quality of services and hospitality that I have seen at Oba Hotel. I will recommend this place to anyone without any doubts!

I am very happy we did just that :). Our stay was very nice. Tulay was very friendly and we had many conversations... More

Dear Yael, Thank you for your nice comment. We should explain that summer is hot in Istanbul but when the A.C (aircondition) is turned on in the room: it cools down the room very quickly. It was nice to meeting you guys. 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
