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.
The Efendi hotel is the fulfillment of a dream long held by Uri Jeremias, chef and proprietor of the famed Uri Buri restaurant. 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. Also preserved was a fresco of the city of Istanbul, which was found at the site. The fresco had been created in 1878 in honor of the new Orient Express train station.
The boutique hotel has twelve special rooms spread out over three levels, each of which has four guestrooms and a central communal salon with appealing sitting areas conducive to rest and relaxation. Guests can also go enjoy the sea air from the large terrace on the northern side of the hotel and enjoy the scenery from one of the luxurious lounging areas.
Complete your vacation experience with a variety of spa treatments to relax the body and soul. The treatments are conducted by the best, most professional treatment providers and masseurs.
Several treatments are performed in the hotel's own traditional Turkish bath, which is almost 400 years old.
