Ismail and Tulay, the proprietors of Oba were the perfect hosts at their cozy hotel just a five minute walk from Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque in the historic Sultanahmet neighborhood. It was like staying with the family you always wanted. Engaging in conversations about Turkish culture over glasses of wine, showing you best places to go and shop,... More

Our stay at OBA was comfortable. It is a neat, tidy place at a good location. The owners and the lady at the reception were very helpful with regard to providing us suggestions and guidance for traveling around the city. The only downside was poor WiFi reception in the annexed building, and below average room cleaning services during our stay.... More

It is really nice to suggest a hotel to 4 very different couples and have them all enjoy it!

A great family-run hotel tucked away in a quiet area of Sultanahmet district yet close to major attractions. Gives a genuine snapshot of ordinary life in Istanbul. A stone's throw away from the Sokullu Mehmet Pasha mosque with its spiritually uplifting calls to prayer. Good variety for breakfast. The hotel owners were very knowledgeable and helpful. Definitely recommended!

Loved this hotel. Staff were fantastic, and bent over backwards to ensure we enjoyed our trip, as well as accommodating our 7am arrival. Great breakfast, and Wifi was included. Decor, cleanliness and quality of the hotel were fantastic, really making the price a superb bargain. Location is perfect for someone visiting Istanbul on foot, as it's very close to many... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
