I Think one of the best hotels in terms of value for your money. I really recommends this hotel to everyone.

Beautiful neighbourhood,a lot of excellent shops. Nice friendly restaurants, etc.

One point: I found a swimming suit from an earlier hotelguest.

It was our first visit to Istanbul and we were glad we picked Efendi. It is well located near most tourist attractions. It's right behind the main road but you don't hear the hustle and bustle. Walking to the Blue Mosque and the nearest tram station took us only 5 minutes. There is also a supermarket at the back of the hotel. It can't be more convenient!

Street was also well lit, so when you walk back to the hotel at night, you won't have any difficulty finding your way back and you feel safe.

Efendi is a fairly new hotel. Though room was small, it was well maintained and very clean.

Service was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful, no matter day or night shift. Upon arrival they gave us a travel book about Istanbul. That was just thoughtful!

Breakfast was basic. We were impressed by the chef who greeted us every morning with her warm, big smile! :-)

Will highly recommend to anyone going to Istanbul!

1. Hospitality (very friendly personnel);
2. Site (proximity to the main sights and tram stop);
3. Design (Rooms small, but thanks to successful design it isn't felt);
4. Purity and cosiness;
5. Silence (there is on a silent small street + good noise isolation);
6. Price and quality;
7. Safe.

This hotel is ideally situated for visiting the main sites in Istanbul and is surrounded by restaurants yet is on a very quiet street. The rooms are immaculate and the service exemplary. Not a major issue but the hanging space is limited, so travel light. Brilliant value

From the moment we arrived until the time we left everything was just right.
Th room was very clean and the bed so comfortable I didn't want to get up.
The staff are all very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They arranged day trips, dinners and taxi services for us always with a smile and to suit our own timetable. There are good quality restaurants in walking distance and within fifteen minutes you can walk to many of the main tourist attractions. I will certainly return to this lovely hotel and will happily recommend it to my friends.

One of the most pleasant hotel services I've ever had anywhere. The hotel management were some of the friendliest I've ever met. Helped us with the smallest things. Went to other hotels in turkey and definitely were spoiled from how well they treated us at Efendi bc we definitely did not get the same treatment there.

Room Tip: the rooms are only designed to sleep two people, so if youre having a group more than that, then you...
