I really enjoyed Hotel Djem and would return again. It's a great location -- quiet, at the end of a small street, but also -- close to the primary tourist sites I was there to see. The manager was tremendously helpful, too. Recommend it highly.

The hotel is well located, right next to the Blue Mosque and a few minutes away from all the major attractions as well as the tram. The rooms are beautifully decorated and large. The communal areas are decorated with beautiful carpets and art work. There were plenty restaurants close by for dinner. We found the staff very helpful in advising... More

All I can say is that Hotel Djem lives up to its high rating. If it is a 5 star hotel you are looking for this is not the place for you, but if you want a lovely clean and comfortable room, very friendly and accomodating owners, good choice at breakfast (cold buffet), and probably the no.1 location in Istanbul...

What a special place this hotel is! Tucked away on a quaint side street, but only a five minute walk to the Blue Mosque, Djem is exactly what I was looking for. Filled with art, tapestries and carved wood, the hotel staff is warm and welcoming. Before I arrived, I arranged for transport from the airport (very reasonable price) and,... More

This really is an amazing little gem in a back street behind the Blue Mosque. We came off a cruise ship and caught the tram to Sultanahmet and it was a 5 min walk - beats taking a taxi in the rush hour! We were very early for our scheduled check in, but Omir at the reception desk was really... More

An excellent hotel. Rooms are good with air con. The hotel backs onto the Blue Mosque so early morning calls from the minaret ensure you will be awake. But you will be in the heart of historic and cultural Istanbul. A short walk will take you to the Topkapi Palace, the Hajia Sofia, and the Basillica Cistern. The managers, Cafer,... More

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

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.

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.
