Hotel Djem is a top-quality boutique hotel in an excellent location with very accomodating and helpful staff. We stayed in 4 hotels during our trip to Istanbul and we found Djem to have the best rooms and the best location in the Sultanahmet area. We stayed in the new annex, and found the rooms to be very well appointed and organised, and also very modern. We had a view of the Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque. The bathrooms are also excellent and everything is kept very clean. The rooms as well as the rest of the hotel has very nice decor and artwork from the owner's shop (in Arasta Bazaar).
Staff, in particular Ufuk, were very kind to us and tried their best to accomodate our needs. Ufuk did an excellent job in providing us a room for a few extra hours before our departure to the airport. During our stay he gave us a lot of useful information on Istanbul and Sultanahmet.
We had a very good rate at Djem and therefore took 3 rooms rather than 2 with extra beds. The rate was specially reduced for the time we went, and the regular price variations thankfully worked in our favour. As this was our first trip to Istanbul we did a lot of research into the hotels and accomodation available - for future trips this time and effort will be saved!
The very slight inconvenience of going between the reception building and the rooms at the annex is more than compensated by the size and quality of the newer rooms. Ideally Djem needs a rooftop terrace, as well as a more spacious breakfast area (or possibly achieve both together). Breakfast was good but could be improved with better breads (Turkish rather than sliced), condiments and coffee.
