Our 4 nights stay last September at the Hotel Dejm was excellent. The hotel is small and charming yet provided first class service.
Every day we had yummy, fresh breakfast with hot tea and sweets during day.
Mr. Faruk Tekin (the owner) and his team were great and did everything to make us feel at home. After first night of sleeping on a pretty hard mattress, I have asked Mr. Faruk if they have any rooms with softer bed because of my back problems. We even didn’t finish our breakfast when the hotel stuff brought to our room an extra thick but soft mattress pad. I am so thankful to them for this special treatment.
The hotel is beautifully decorated with the artwork of the owners, who also sell their artwork at two nearby shops. At the end of the trip we have purchased one of the art made by Mr. Faruk’s brother, which we really enjoy.
The location was perfect. The hotel was on a small back street, very close, just a wall behind to the Blue Mosque. In fact, every morning at dawn, if you don’t sleep too soundly, you can hear a call to prayer, which I loved to listen to.
Other old city attractions, like: Hippodrome, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Archeological Museum, Yerabatan/Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar, and Spice Bazaar, are in a walking distance.
A block away from the hotel was small bazaar. The merchandise in the bazaar was similar to the one at the Grand Bazaar. In most shops the prices were as marked, so the game of negotiating prices was not necessary.
Certainly I'll recommend this wonderful place and stay in this hotel again.
