We found Efendi Hotel after spending quite some time to choose the right one for us. We were not disappointed. The hotel is brand new and every thing is in perfect condition and very clean. The hotel is in a quit areaAll the attraction in like blue mosque, bazar etc are in walking distance. The room are nor large but have all you need. Ask for top floor rooms. Most worth mentioning is the very friendly and helpful staff. Cem (perfect German speaker) helped with advice on when museums are open, restaurants, bars with best views, public transportation and restaurants. A very good place to visit Istanbul from

Room Tip: ask for top floors. if on ground floor ask for courtyard side

This was a great trip! Location excellent, friendly and very helpful staff ;) It is a pity that it was a too short vacation :( It`s elegant place, but also very cozy and nice, for a reasonable price for ordinary tourist. I will definitely return there as soon as I can. I heartily recommend to all!
Best regards,
Piter

I spent the entire weekend in this Hotel.
"Efendi Hotel" is located in the very good place, in the vicinity of the old town.
Very much quiet surroundings appealed to me and simultaneously better communication with the most important points İstanbul.
Amazing interior design style, it is very important for me, since the visual balance is a key for me to success and is very essential.
Willingly I will use these spaces during my another visit in Turkey.

We spent a week in this nice hotel, which is excellent located in a quiet street but only few minutes walk away from main atractions in Sultanahmed and very important near to tram station. Hotel staff is very good, helpful and we realy felt like we were staying in a family. Breakfast is good, with changing backery products every day. Rooms are well equipped, not big, the bed could be more comfortable. The bathroom has an excellent shower.

Room Tip: Rooms looking on street are better.

The location is perfect to explore the historic places in Istanbul. It is walking distance from the main attractions. The room was clean and of good size. Staff were very friendly and helpful. When we asked the recepcion to recommend us traditional turkish restaurant a member of staff took us to the restaurant himself. The night shift receptionist was the friendliest. We arrived 2am in the morning and they were waiting for us and welcomed us with a drink. They even prepared very early breakfast at 3am for us. We had a very comfortable stay at the hotel and great time in Istanbul.

This is a great location to explore the Old City. Most tourist attractions like the Ayasofya, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar are walking distance.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Cem Ocal and his team made all the effort to make us feel comfortable.
