Carefully renovated, Uri Buri has created a masterpiece with the binding together of two historic homes in the Old City of Acre. Everything was light and airy, with very high stud (looks close to 4m) in the tastefully decorated rooms. Staff were excellent and the sumptuous breakfast enough to get you out the door with a spring in your step. Location was excellent, as it made all attractions within easy walking distance. the beds were large and comfortable.
Exquisitely decorated and superbly appointed, the Efendi Hotel in Akko, Israel is a destination unto itself. Staff are super friendly & helpful and the Israeli breakfast is out of this world. You won’t be disappointed.
Dear Gregg, Thank you for your review of the Efendi Hotel! We appreciate the kind words and are happy you were satisfied during your stay. Every staff member can agree that we want our guests to feel at home, so we're pleased that you had a pleasant experience from start to finish. Best regards!
This has to be one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed in. Not only that, the staff are truly amazing as well. We are 2 families of 9 in total. We took 2 presidential suites and the rest were royal rooms. The hotel took 8 years to complete and the inside has been lovingly furnished with both furniture and soft furnishings. The ceilings were beautifully panted with frescoes and the paintings and art work all around the hotel are just stunning. This hotel has clearly been a labour of love for Uri, the owner. The rooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable. Every attention to detail has been paid in this hotel to create a wonderful ambience that you do not ever want to leave. The breakfast was truly amazing - wonderful dips that are clearly freshly made, wonderful fresh bread that has just been baked and set on the table, a great egg menu and fresh juices and tea and coffee to order. We also ate at the owner's seafood restaurant - Uri Buri - again, you will not be disappointed if you eat here.
Dear Panida, Thank you for your review of the Efendi Hotel. The hotel is, indeed, a labor of love for Uri 'Buri,' and we all take pride in working at such an elegant piece of history. Thank you taking the time to enjoy every aspect of our hotel and restaurant, Uri Buri. We strive to give attention to every detail, and we are only more motivated by reviews like yours. Best regards!
This hotel is a product of love. The attention to details and level of restoration of this building (actually 2 buildings) is just phenomenal. The breakfast is amazing, and the only thing I can say against it was that I couldn't stop stuffing myself. It is seriously hard to.
Dear Anon721, Thank you for your review of the Efendi Hotel. The hotel is absolutely a product of love--a love that never waivers! The restoration was taken extremely seriously, as preserving the buildings' history was a top priority. We're so happy to hear you loved the breakfast; we'll pass the compliments to the chefs. Best regards!
This is a beautiful hotel with excellent service. We stayed two nights. It is easy to walk to all sightseeing and there is the famous Uri Buri restaurant a short walk away. Many bride and groom couples came to be photographed in this gorgeous hotel, which gives you an idea of its splendor.
There are plenty of places to sit and relax. The breakfast is amazing, tons of food served with a smile at a long table suitable for the knights of the roundtable.
It is hard to find the hotel as it is on a very small street and our GPS told us we were there and didn’t see a sign. Once you Google Maps says you are there, park your car and walk and ask.
The hotel only has a few rooms so you must reserve in advance. The service is attentive. We thought we had bought something by mistake and the hotel staff went back to the shuk with us to make sure everything was right.
Dear Nancy, Thank you for your review of the Efendi Hotel! We are happy to hear that you were pleased with many aspects of the hotel. Although it can be a challenge to drive all the way to the hotel entrance, we're happy that you see the upside--a central location in the Old City of Akko. We want our guests to feel most comfortable, and we won't stop until we feel that is achieved. Thank you for noticing. Best regards!
Nestled in the picturesque narrow lanes of Acre, the Efendi Hotel overlooks the historic city walls and the magnificent Mediterranean Sea beyond. The unique structure of this hotel combines two ancient houses …Morethat have hundreds of years of history stored within their walls. These houses were meticulously reconstructed and merged into one building before being converted into a boutique hotel.. Complex preservation and restoration work over a period of eight years gave birth to a gorgeous, breathtaking pearl that was truly a labor of love. Thought was invested in each and every detail of the preservation work, which was performed under the supervision of the Antiquities Authority. Artisans were specially flown in from Italy in order to undertake this delicate work, as well as the restoration of the beautiful ceilings.All rooms in the hotel are furnished and equipped to the highest standards, and each room has its own unique character and style. Some rooms' ceilings feature illustrations, while others are made from preserved wood. Most of the windows offer sea views, while others look out over the ancient city of Acre and the scenic mountains of the Western Galilee. Less
