It was a pleasure to stay at Oba Hotel. The location was very convenient. It was close to major sites like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace. The proprietor, Ismael was terrific and so helpful. We found some great spots because of him. One minus was the thinness of the walls, which let in the sound of neighbors.... More

Perfectly located within a short walk to the attractions of Sultanahmet but in a quiet street. This is a family run hotel which very much feels like a home-from-home. The Oba is a charming building, with excellent rooms which are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The owners are very welcoming and helpful, giving useful tips of how to make the... More

Oba is a fabulous home from home in Istanbul. It is in the old city within walking distance of the Hagasofya and the Blue Mosque, etc. It is more of a large guesthouse (spotlessly clean) than a small hotel, which makes for a friendly, more personal stay in this lovely city. Ismail is very knowledgeable and friendly, and goes out... More

We spent a whole week in Istanbul and we really had a wonderful experience, not only because of the endless appeal of this magnificent city but thanks to Oba Hotel as well. First of all, I must say it is more of a stylish guest house than a regular hotel, with its ten rooms and its multipurpose common area -... More

I highly recommend this fabulous hotel. It is like to stay at a friends house. The people there are really friendly and helpful. Since we had a long stay they upgraded us to a bigger room which made our stay really comfortable. Ismail gave me great advice on a lot of things and helped me to book some of the... More

This B & B is within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Ayasofya, the Grand Bazaar, and Topkapi Place. My room was very comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. Above all, the service was truly exceptional. I arrived on a Saturday and had not yet bought Turkish Lira. They lent me money until I was able to do so. Overall,... More

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
