Making a decision regarding which hotel to stay is always challenging when there is so much choice. However my choice was made easier by the reviews of the Oba Hotel on this site. I was not disappointed, my husband and I were warmly welcomed by Ismail, who was friendly, attentive and informative throughout our whole stay and provided us with everything we needed to know to enjoy our trip. I loved the warm and cosy feeling of the Hotel, with its clean and thoughtfully decorated rooms. Most importantly the comfy bed, I did not even hear the early morning Call to Prayer the day after our arrival as I was snugly wrapped in a plump duvet.
Everything had been thought of, from Turkish Delights in the room to all the toiletries (and more) that you would expect to find in a 5* hotel. Breakfast provided a good start to the day with both cold and hot temptations together with much needed coffee to keep us going to explore this wonderful city. The Oba Hotel is a convenient base to explore the whole city, which we did mostly on foot. A five minute walk up the hill takes you to the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and a plethora of restaurants vying for your business.
We used the minivan transfer both from and to the airport offered by Oba Hotel for a small charge. This was a good judgment call as we landed late at night, tired after a long flight and were whisked away in a clean minivan to the welcoming Oba Hotel. The hotel would've been a little difficult to find in the maze of streets late at night when all we wanted to do was sleep.
The Oba Hotel is the perfect place to stay when visiting Istanbul.
