We really enjoyed our stay at efendi. These botique places are so much fun for us, every room decorated in a different way. I would say elegant, clean, comfortable , spacious is a good description of the rooms, most have fantastic view to the sea and try to book the ones with the balcony. Food is excellent here too, try...

The Efendi is a nice building very well refurbished and very calm in the middle of Akko. However some details are missing for a hotel of this category and price. Better organisation for the breakfast, some maintenance in the rooms and also the team is very nice, very helpful but with no a long experience and, as said before, the...

I recently stayed here for my second time. Built in and among old villas in the old walled city, the hotel has a wonderful old world feeling. All of our rooms were different with high ceilings and comfortable stylish furniture. We spent time in the common seating rooms and on the rooftop for sunsets. The staff is always super nice...

Service was incredible. Hotel was spectacular. No detail was overlooked. Breakfast was insane. I'll be dreaming of the grapefruit juice for years to come. They also won bonus points by working hard to accommodate my kids. Can't wait to return!

For the tourist or traveler, numerous sites in Israel compete for attention. Acco doe snot compete for it is a jewel that does not impose itself. Acco, just north of Haifa, is not unknown, but is slightly off the normal tourism path, which ironically contributes to Acco's calm and beauty. Rather than reciting the rare atmosphere that defines Acco (one...

Dear Oded, Thank you for this great review. Nice to see that our efforts in making memorable experiences are met with success. Hammam Ghattas is highly recommended by The Efendi Hotel. Yet, the two hammams are utterly different. Our hammam, unlike most, is a private 400 year old Turkish bath. This means that the treatments in it are individual and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 that 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. ... more   less
