This was a great experience. Although I was unprepared by the short walk in a narrow lane to the the discreet hotel entrance. Once inside the door, I discovered a fabulous lobby. The room was delightful, well appointed with a Nespresso coffee maker. The lobby on the first floor looked out on the sea. The buffet breakfast was excellent (we skipped lunch). The owner "Uri Buri", not his real name, has an excellent fish restaurant in walking distance from the hotel. The restaurant in the basement was also excellent with a great selection of wines. The wine waiter made excellent suggestions. The only flip side was that the room cleaning staff was not up to the standard of this great hotel.
- 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
