My husband and I just spent five nights in the Oba Hotel, which we found via Trip Advisor. It deserves all its good reviews. It's on a quiet side street, yet within walking distance to all the Blue Mosque and all those great sites. One of the most beautiful mosques in Istanbul is also directly behind it. The owner, Ismail...

Short version: 1. Great location. 10 min walk to tram. You could walk to most of the main attraction too. 2. Great breakfast. It is sumptuous so I would recommend you slot in a good 30 mins to enjoy the spread. 3. The rooms are clean and the hotel is surrounded by apartments but very quiet and cozy. 4. Ismail...

Its a new hotel built in 2012.. the host was amazing. He works tirelessly to make sure your stay is good. The family apartments were very well decorated, with very comfortable beds, ensuite in all rooms and very clean. Its 5 minutes walk from the blue mosque and all the local sites. Highly recommend this place to everyone.

Ismail and Tulay are welcoming, kind, and extremely helpful. I stayed for two weeks and used the Oba as a "home base" from which to explore the city. The location is extremely close to the Blue Mosque yet set back amongst quieter streets. Tulay introduced me to the app "CityMaps2Go" and gave me a wonderful personalized overview of sites I...

I spent 4 nights at Oba Hotel when I was accompanied by my wife and my infant baby. Ismail was very very helpful in every aspect. Be it taking advice on planning the tour or utilizing the pantry to wash baby milk bottles. Location: Oba Hotel is at 10-15 mins walk from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia which are the...

It is a family owned business - they go out of their way to help their customers - arrange for the limo pick-up and drop to the airport and sightseeing. Proximity to the historical sites and great restaurants is a big plus.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
