I would highly recommend the Efendi Hotel for anyone staying in Istanbul! The hotel is great for couples, solo travelers, business travelers, etc. The staff was extremely helpful when asked about things to do and sights to see in the city, and they were able to book and excursion for us to Gallipoli with no problems at all! The rooms... More

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

It was our first time in Istanbul, found Efendi on the internet, spent a lot of time searching for a hotel for a family of 4, with beds not sofa beds, clean and modern Efendi delivered. The staff was very helpful before we arrived and during our stay in Istanbul. Pictures you see on the web are exact. Would not... 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
