You'd be hard pressed to find a better place to stay. At a very reasonable cost, the staff at Hotel Djem were extremely helpful and provided us everything we needed. Omer and Cafer always greeted us with a smile and provided us with great info on where to go and what to do. The hotel is located next to the... More

Beds are are a little had for my taste but that seems to be the norm in Turkey. Large tasty breakfast with lots of local fruits with excellent cofffee... More

Friendly service, good breakfast and cosy clean rooms. Sultanahmet is just a 2 min walk away. The ideal place if what you are planning is a couple of days sightseeing. We did not hear the nocturnal prayer call. But then again, maybe that's just because of those long days spent out sightseeing.

This small hotel is about 100 yds From the Blue Mosque.The rooms are OK and the breakfast is only OK. It was in a very quite neighborhood other than during the calls to prayer. The people who work the desk are GREAT !!!!!!!! Good value for the money in such a pRIME location.

Turkey is a huge city and there's no "centre" as such, however if you're planning on staying in Fatih, which covers a large part of historical Istanbul, then Hotel Djem is very well located, being in the middle of Fatih, and only a few minutes walk from sights like the Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia.

This was our first time to stay at the Hotel Djem recommended by friends of ours. It is right next to the Blue Mosque and just around the corner from the Hippodrome. Thus it is close to all of the sights in the Old City and close to the tram line. You might think that the call for prayer at... More

Excellent small boutique hotel. Great staff, no fuss, just great services. Lovely breakfast. The location of this hotel, is amazing, it backs onto the wall of The Blue Mosque. Walking distance to everything, even the Galatta Tower for the fitter amongst us. Loved it.

We had an amazing time at Djem Hotel. The location is very central, literally next door to the Blue Mosque. At first, our bathroom was a bit smelly but Cafer promptly moved us to a bigger and better room. Omer from the reception was also very helpful. Breakfast was very good!

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.
