We had originally booked 4 nights at Efendi on the internet and ended up staying longer because we were so satisfied. Burcu at reception was very friendly, accommodating and helped us with what we needed. Only thing about room 103 on the ground floor was that the bathroom ceiling leaked when the room above used the shower. When we returned... More

Stayed at the Efendi with a friend during a 4-day mini break. The hotel was very clean, service was excellent, breakfast was really good with excellent variety and an awesome view from the top floor cafe and rooftop. Really well located for seeing all the sights. Highly recommend the Efendi for your next stay in Istanbul.

The hotel was excellent - friendly staff, good breakfast, great view, and most of all you can't beat the location! Walking distance to most things, both sites and restaurants. The rooms were decent, but there is so much to do in Istanbul so unless you intend to stay in your room the whole time this should not be an issue.... More

Very nice clean hotel. Staff were very friendly and always happy to help. Super location in the down town part of Istanbul with roof top deck allowing for amazing view across the city and harbor. Free postcards were available and the staff were happy to take them to the post shop for us. Very nice breakfast with wide range of... More

We loved the Efendi hotel. The location was perfect for us as first timers to Istanbul - a very quick walk away from the major sights like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace. It is also steps away from the Sultanahmet tram station that can take you to all other awesome spots in the city, like Eminonu... More

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for 6 nights in May 2015. We were very satisfied with the hotel location. Room was tiny a bit, but sufficient. The hotel is really clean everywhere. The breakfast was a pleasure to take. All the personnel are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. Olga, Slovakia

Stayed here with my husband in April. When we arrived and checked in, our room was tiny but we got upgraded to a bigger room free of charge. we were lucky they had available i guess. The staff was really friendly. Breakfast was ok but was the same every morning so got bored after day 3. The location though was... More

Stayed there for 3 nights in July 2014. Our room was slightly small, but very clean and well-equipped. Staff is pleasant and helpful, especially at the front desk. Not everyone spoke english, but they made sure to get someone who did whenever needed. Amazing view of the old city from rooftop terrace where the breakfast is served. Food was good... More

The location is superb and super near to the main shopping area of sultanahmet. Just walk 1-min away and you are surrounded by all the nice restaurants with alfresco seating area and quaint dainty shops selling local souvenirs. Since I am travelling with my mom (68yo) and a little child (4yo) it was utterly crucial for us to stay near... More

We really enjoyed our stay, staff were friendly and very helpful. Location was a short walk away from the attractions and restaurants. Breakfast in the morning was a buffet which was great to start the day of adventure. Our room was a double and for two of us with luggage it was a little cramped. Bathroom facilities were great.
