Small hotel but with great staff and well fitted rooms. Just 2 minutes walk to streets full of restaurants. 5 minutes walk to a tram station. 10 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Hagia Sophia. From the 7th floor breakfast area you have a view of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Can not ask for more.

he rooms are excellent, very clean. Very cooperative staff. Our AC had a little problem, so they were kind enough to move us to a family room without additional charges. The breakfast was excellent, so was the view from the hotel balcony. The tram station is 3 minutes. Hagia Sophia, TopKapi and Blue Mosque are 5-6 minutes away. Grand Bazaar... More

We stayed in Efendi hotel in June 2014. It was our first trip to Turkey. The location is very good, close to Ayasofia and the grand bazar. The staff is wonderful, very friendly and professional. The room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a nice breakfast on the terrace with a stunning view on Sultanhamet. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for two nights, really central , comfortable, good breakfast (order the omlette) , and super kind service. Booked on the net, half the price of the posted rate! It's a good find , round the corner from plenty of restaurants, and very close to main attractions. Quiet, cozy. Good internet.

A wonderful small boutique hotel in a quiet (no street noise!) side street 5 minutes walk from Istanbul's historical sites. The staff are the friendliest I have ever come across. Neil Melvin, Glasgow.
