Booked one night in Akko at the Efendi, thanks to TripAdvisor reviews of the hotel. I will definitely come back and spend more time.
Hotel is located in the old City of Akko, in a very safe corner, walking distance from all the main touristy area. Same owner as Uri Buri, the excellent seafood restaurant, which is 5 min walk from the hotel.
Efendi offers spacious rooms, luxury bathrooms, spa (book in advance), great attention to details, amazing views of either the old city or the sea and a great rooftop with a bar and couches to relax and watch sunset.
We traveled there as a family and we had an amazing and relaxing time. A true gem.
Breakfast was also excellent and the wine cellar very charming. I posted a bunch of pictures to illustrate my review.
Even though our family time was great, I would recommend this place for couples.
- 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
