My husband and I are frequent travellers and travelled throughout Turkey but I can guarantee that the service we received from Efendi was by far the best we received from any hotel across the globe, including hotels in Turkey. This is a small hotel and you are really treated as family so it is really “A HOME AWAY FROM HOME”.... More

Stayed at this hotel during my second visit to the amazing city of Istanbul. Positive: Amazing location, minutes walk away from some of the best attractions of old Istanbul and the public transportation system. The staff were amazing as well as the owner who presided over them, they saw it was my birthday and left me a small gift. Breakfast... More

We were picked up at the airport (free pickup if you stay three nights), then taken to the hotel--three blocks form the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Wow, from the breakfast terrace on the top floor--what an eye popping view! Melisa came around to tell us what to see and when, very helpful to us. She suggested we buy the... More

The location of this small hotel is right in the center of Fatih, where many of the most famous sights of Istanbul are within easy walking distance. My room was very spacious with a fabulous bathroom and an excellent rooftop breakfast. And the price was definitely right! I will stay here again.

Staff was courteous and explained how to get to everything touristy. The hotel has an amazing rooftop view and is very close to the Aya Sofia... More

The Team welcomed us warmely with a suprise (turkish Juice + sweet ), helped us with the luggage and explained the hotel room very well. The room was... More

I spent 2 nights at the Efendi hotel (a Saturday and Sunday). I found the staff piror to my arrival very responsive especially when I was late in organising a airport pick-up, which went very smoothly in the end. Upon arrival I was very early due to flights, however, was warmly greeted and was told that if I wished to... More

This hotel has modern facilities, including more than 150 cable TV (this is a record to all hotels I have been to date, it has TV channels from Thailand or Iran TV to CNN, France 24 or BBC) . The hotel is very hard to find and most taxi drivers have no clue where it is situated, but they do... More
