This hotel is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. The location is great, only a 5-10 minute walk from the Haiga Sofia, with many restaurants even closer. It’s not noisy being in a residential neighborhood. The family running the place is very nice, they guided our...More
I recently stayed with my daughter four nights at the Oba Hotel. The hotel is a small older Turkish residence turned into a charming boutique hotel. The location is fairly central to the Sultanahmet district. It is located in a predominantly residential area. There are...More
We had a great stay at the Oba hotel - extremely well situated, within 10 minutes walking distance of the Blue Mosque and then onto all the other 'must see' sights of Istanbul. The area is filled with interesting shops and some really good, very...More
The location of Oba hotel is marvelous with easy access to many museums, markets and public transport. The only thing which was disturbing is that the roof is made of wound with no sound isolation and this may be disturbing for some people, but the...More

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.

The owner of Oba organised a shuttle for us from the airport to the hotel - I seem to recall the cost from Ataturk Airport was around 20 Euros. We flew out of Sabiha G airport which is further away - the taxi from Oba to SG was around 45 Euros. A normal yellow taxi off the street should cost around TKL 70 from Sultanamet to Ataturk airport. Lots of taxi's available at any time, and the owner always happy to organise this service. Oba is, however, in short walking distance from the main tourist areas so we walked.
