Myself and my Girlfriend both enjoyed a very friendly stay at the Efendi... The staff were courteous, helpful and informative.... The building was clean, comfortable and located wonderfully on a quiet street within tipping distance of all the Old Town has to offer.... As value for money goes, I'd say the Efendi is right up there with the best... As... More

The hotel is very well located to the main attraction of the Old City. The rooms we liked a lot, small is to be expected; Istanbul is a very old city, especially this part. The buffet breakfast has lots of options, they make there own pastry and everything is of good quality and most important, fresh. The hotel is clean... More

We love the Efendi and can't wait to come back again. The staff, especially Melissa, have been so friendly and helpful. There was a small delay at check-in (of 2 minutes!) so the sat... More

Traveling out of Greece to Istanbul, we were days on the internet trying to choose the accommodations that would be best for our first trip to this iconic city. At last we clicked on The Efendi, judging the book by its cover, I liked the sound of the word, it was in our budget, and seemingly in a location central... More

We felt very welcomed at Efendi Hotel. We stayed for 8 nights. The best part of the hotel is the staff! Very helpful and easy-going. Melissa the manger is quite new to the hotel, but seems like she has been there for years by how well she is running it. The rest of the staff is also great and help... More

Just in the center of the old town. Very cosy and clean. After being tired of visiting all museum and beautiful mosques, we could sleep in our room without any noise. Staff and managers were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very rich. Sacha from Moscow!
