Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Everything was perfect except the construction site (I guess a renovation) where workers started quite early to make noises!
The service was perfect and the staff very nice and anxious!
I can really recommend this hotel to everyone not only because it is in the center of the mayor tourist attractions!

Our stay at the Efendi Hotel couldn't have been better. The location is excellent - near the Blue Mosque, Sofia, the cistern, tons of restaurants and transportation. The staff was so accommodating - answered our every question and arranged for anything we asked.

Location is very convenient - close to Sultanahmet area where you will find Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, etc. The staffs are friendly and explain to us how to get to places. Breakfast is also good.

Helpful friendly staff. Small but clean rooms. Toilet not working but fixed immediately. Delicious breakfast especially the hot cheese borek, eggs, local cheeses/tomatoes & sausages. Good wifi. Excellent location for walking to all major tourist attractions in the Old City. Tram station close by to get you to ferry for Bosphorous & Princes Islands cruises. Expensive, but plan your holiday well in advance - I signed up to Booking.com & received very special deal, then went ahead with reservation. Keep up looking after your customers so well! Thank you to Burcu and rest of the staff. The lady who cooked breakfast daily always greeted you (when you saw her) with a lovely smile!!!

Efendi is a nice, small, conveniently-located hotel. It is clean, quiet, and has god wifi. The rooms are small, of course, but recently renovated nicely. There are no amenities like a swimming pool or exercise room, because of the small size, and the breakfast buffet, while good, is much smaller than at the other six hotels I've stayed at in Turkey. My only real reservation is the cost. It may be worth the price, though.

Recently during my visit to Istanbul I stayed at Efendi, Sultanhamet. The location is just perfect for everything. Tram station is just few mins walk. The famous Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazar, Ferry ride everything is in near vicinity.The rooms were good. The staff was just great. Every one was very friendly and ever helpful. I had a great stay at Efendi and would like to recommend the same.
