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. The staff was helpful and the owner was very welcoming. Good location too: only a short walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. On arrival... More

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

We've just returned from spending a week in Istanbul for Christmas, and stayed in the Oba Hotel for the duration. I have to say, this is one of the cutest hotels we've ever stayed in. The hotel is impeccably maintained, it is very clean and cozy. The aquamarine exterior is both pretty and striking, and is a welcoming site when... More

The Oba is a hidden gem just minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Topaki Palace. The hotel is a traditional woodenTurkish house converted into a small boutique place to stay. Our room on the 1st floor was bright, warm and very cozy. Our small bathroom had every amenity you could want. Breakfast is included in their rate and we... More
