Actually, calling this place a "hotel" is rather disrespectful. This is the place where you arrive and don't want to leave, ever. Staff is very welcoming, warm and professional. The gentleman who brought these houses back to life treated every brick with the same respect as the fish he is cooking in his restaurant.
I also got one of the best ever massage in the hotel spa.
I spend a good third of my time in 4-5 star hotels all over the world. The Efendi is in a category of its own, it will make me travel to Israel more often. It is also the place where I would want to fall asleep for ever, watching sun set from the roof top.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the picturesque narrow lanes of Acre, the Efendi Hotel overlooks the historic city walls and the magnificent Mediterranean Sea beyond. The unique structure of this hotel combines two ancient houses that have hundreds of years of history stored within their walls. These houses were meticulously reconstructed and merged into one building before being converted into a boutique hotel.. Complex preservation and restoration work over a period of eight years gave birth to a gorgeous, breathtaking pearl that was truly a labor of love. Thought was invested in each and every detail of the preservation work, which was performed under the supervision of the Antiquities Authority. Artisans were specially flown in from Italy in order to undertake this delicate work, as well as the restoration of the beautiful ceilings.All rooms in the hotel are furnished and equipped to the highest standards, and each room has its own unique character and style. Some rooms' ceilings feature illustrations, while others are made from preserved wood. Most of the windows offer sea views, while others look out over the ancient city of Acre and the scenic mountains of the Western Galilee. ... more less
