Ishmail, the owner, is welcoming, friendly, and helpful. He went out of his way to help with dinner recommendations, to solving a guide issue, to running to a pharmacy for needed medication. The bed, the room, the breakfast, the location: all wonderful.
Not enough time there!!!!
Room, wifi, welcome, breakfast
Noisy neighbour upstairs
The hotel is small but cozy and stylish. The owners are very friendly and helpful, they speak perfect English. They were so kind with me and offered me a breakfast on my arrival because I was there early in the morning.
The location of the hotel is good for walking but it is not so easy to find it by car or by taxi.
I am a frequent flyer and have been traveling around the world quite often. I stayed in B&B's and 5-star hotels. But i have never seen the quality of services and hospitality that i have seen at Oba Hotel. I will recommend this place to anyone without any doubts!
Great location, excellent value for money and comfort, very helpful and friendly staff, good quality and diverse breakfast, clean, comfortable bed, great shower, good toiletries received daily. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul.
We loved everything!!! Not only was the Oba our favorite hotel in Turkey, but it is now one of our favorite small hotels ever (and that's saying something, as I've stayed in a LOT of hotels). The phenomenal staff and hosts went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, safe and comfortable. The room was large and the beds were soooo comfy. The plentiful and fresh breakfasts offered at the Oba turned out to be our favorite meals each day. We really appreciated the early check in and the small parting gifts. If you are trying to decide whether or not to stay here - don't hesitate; just book it. You won't be disappointed.
Nothing! It is a Mary Poppins hotel, "practically perfect in every way."
Everything about the hotel -staff -food/breakfast -rooms -comfort
I don't really know the bad thing about Oba, because it gave us great living experience in Istanbul. I will surely choice the same hotel next time.
Please next time do give us tips about the transport fees of taxi before other tourists' arrival in case they get treated like us.~
Ismail and family were incredibly friendly and nice! Location is walking distance to Hagia Sophia neighborhood and tram stops. Clean, comfortable rooms. Even the minibar was reasonably priced!
A couple of the recommended tours/excursions were not very good.
Very friendly owner and clean rooms.
Lovely Turkish Hospitality! The hospitality was wonderful and all of the Oba Hotel's family was involved in making our stay wonderful! What a lovely bonus, because the hotel is located in the Sultanahmet neighborhood of Istanbul and on the edge of a traditional Turkish neighborhood. This includes a nice, quiet street with just a few sweet Turkish families! The rooms were lovely and the breakfast great!
Friendly and helpful staff. Within a short walk to major attractions. Blue Mosque is 5 mins away.
The hotel (B&B) is located in a small street, in the Sultanahmet area, about 10 min walk to the Blue Mosque, Agia Sofia, Topkapi, Underground Cistern, Arasta Bazar. Close to important attractions. It is an old wooden house, very nicely renovated. Decorated with taste and very nice carpets. The 9 rooms are clean, with big and comfortable beds. The bathroom is small, but clean, with all necesaries toiletries. The owners, Ismail and Aydin, are very nice and attentive, they gave us all the information we needed. Ismail speaks English fluently with no accent. He was always present and eager to help. When we arrived, on a hot day, they greeted us with cold water and juice. Breakfast was good, buffet style, the cold part being the same each day but the hot part being different each day. They got us tickets to Agia Sofia and thus we avoided a very big queue so this was very helpful. Also, they arranged us the transfer from and to the airport (25 Euro per way) My wife and I, had a great time in this hotel and would recommend it to our friends who are going to visit Istanbul.
The floor is very thin, we could hear all steps and voices of the above clients. The neighbours talk until very late at night, so if you sleep with your window open you will hear every word like they were in your room. Also, behind the hotel there is a parking, which generates noise in the evening and early in the morning for the rooms on that side. The only way to avoid it is to sleep with the windows closed. On the other hand, each day we came back after a long walk during the day, we were very tired and fell asleep quickly so the noise didn't bother us too much !
Friendly owners, excellent service and the most convenient location
Very friendly and helpful owners. Excellent location. Clean and spacious rooms.
Nice location next to an old mosque which is still in use, walking distance to major attractions. Big room, very clean, nice breakfast and great staff! We arrived early in the morning, breakfast was still on the table and we were offered to sit and have breakfast, very much appreciated! Owners are as good as it gets!!
The guy living under us (second floor) came to complain when we were walking in the room, as I explained to him the floor is thin and we could also hear the people walking above us. For us this wasn't a problem at all, for others it seems to be :)
The entire experience was wonderful. The owner had personally made sure that we were comfortable and if there was any help needed. The comfort of the rooms and proximity to the the center of sultanhamet was key. Thank you Ismail and team for a wonderful stay! Regards, Yugandhar
Upon arriving Ismael sat us down and helped us with our itinerary for the trip, offering useful advice and answering our (many) questions. One night I forgot my bag at one of the local restaurants and the Oba staff helped to retrieve it for me. Our room was pleasant and spacious, well equipped with aircon, tv, fridge etc. The breakfast is amazing - lots of different options of local delicious food.
The walls are thin and the muezzin in the mosque next door gets going at 4:30 am. Also pack walking shoes. Although close to the hippodrome and main sights, there is a bit of an uphill trek for about 5 mins to get there.
It was an amazing experience. The hotel is really cute, the interior spaces feel like home, the rooms are super clean and nice. Breakfast is also very good, with a range of Turkish delicacies and international breakfast options. Staff are also very open, helpful and friendly. It was barely 5-10 mins walk from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia too! We will definitely visit again!
Nothing, everything was great!
Everything! Perfection in Istanbul = Oba Hotel.
Location is a little distant from the main touristy areas of Sultanahmet. While this is lovely during the day, walking back at night was a little uncomfortable (since we were 2 women).
You at once feel at home
Noisy due to mosque next door and thin walls; A very exhausting way uphill to get to the centre
Very friendly owner and staff, the information on public transport we've got. We could borrow a Istanbulcard. The breakfast was very nice, with everyday a different warm section.
I can not think of anything.
From the moment I made the booking the Staff at the Oba were really welcoming. Ismail, the owner/manager was really helpful and friendly. They are able to assist with bookings of tours and shows such as the 'Whirling Dervishes'. The room was great, super clean, and the whole hotel had a homely feel. Being so close to the Mosque made finding your way back quite easy.
The floors are a little thin, so I could hear the upstairs guests above my room. However, it's a really old building so it is to be expected. This would not put me off from staying there again.
