Ismael is the consummate host, the hotel is clean and centrally located, the breakfast is sumptuous. But more than anything, it's Ismael who makes this hotel rise head and shoulders above the competition.

I highly recommend the Oba hotel for your stay in this fantastic city, I went as a solo traveller at the end of February. Room was really well furnished and comfortable. There is some noise in the rooms as the walls are quite thin and you do hear the call to prayer loud and clear but that's part of the... More

We stayed here only for 2 nites and found this hotel was a great place to stay. Our room was not too modern but it was clean, tidy and comfortable. Staffs werr always welcoming and inviting and they were ready to show us great direction for attractions nearby. We would definitely come back and recommend.

We stayed for 5 nights in February. We were welcomed with tea and an impromptu guide to the city. This is a small family-run hotel only a 5 minute walk from Hagia Sophia (on a steep hill which might be tricky for some and was for us when it snowed!). The family are friendly but unobtrusive. The room was a... More

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
