We have just spent our second stay at Hotel Djem, in the heart of Sultanahmet, right next to the Blue Mosque. After staying in a 5 star hotel in Istanbul, we would rather stay at Hotel Djem any day. Thank you so much Can and Ersin for your hospitality and excellent Service. You made us feel so very welcome. We... More

 The hotel was amazing. The staff was extremely helpful, the breakfast was good and plentiful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a best location ever, close to the tram station, several large mosques, restaurants, and the fame bazar. The street is quiet and just a few steps away from a nice public square, Aya Sofia, Blue... More

Located in the very center of Istanbul, nice hotel with friendly and attentive hosts. The room was colorfully decorated in national style and nicely aromatized. Our windows were directly facing minarets of Sultan Ahmet mosque. Breakfast with Turkish dishes was excellent. Proper choice if you like to get in touch with Turkish culture.

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.

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!

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

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.

“Do not drink the tap water in Istanbul. It may look and feel like other major cities of Europe, but the water treatment is not the same.”
