We chose this hotel because of its great location and the good price but we would come back here for the excellent service we got. Already when we checked in the receptionist took his time to offer us tea and cakes, gave us a big map of the city and a quite detailed introduction to what is has to offer....

What a great little hotel. Small and private just near the Hippodrome and behind the Blue Mosque.

Farouk the owner manager was extremely helpful, he planned our daily trip including where to eat. Should have also been a tour guide. The staff could not have been more helpful, Sahin was outstanding. It was very clean, quiet and the internet connection was great. We will stay there again. The laundry service was reasonably priced.

This gem of a boutique hotel is located directly behind the blue mosque. Ideal for walking to all the sites in the old city. Management is warm and friendly, offering excellent advice on what and when to see. Always had coffee, tea and incredible cookies available. Rooms in adjacent buildings were warm and sumptuous. Breakfast was the only weak spot,...

My 5-night stay at the Djem couldn't have been more delightful. The small (11-room) hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet, right behind the Blue Mosque and the Hippodrome, has been renovated to include all the modern comforts and is beautifully decorated with Turkish textiles and kilims. I requested, and received, room #10 in the annex (only a few doors down...

I just spent six nights at the Djem with several clients for my Turkish culinary/cultural tour. The hotel is an excellent choice for its location, the level of comfort and lovely decor for a very fair price and, perhaps most of all, its staff. Farouk, the owner-manager is hands-on in the best sense. The staff is welcoming and very helpful...

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.”
