We went to this hotel to celebrate 30 years of marriage. Very expensive but worth it.
How to get there: I tried everything including using Google Street View. What works: Drive to the beach and turn left (at Med Center) onto Hagana, Just before the famous Uri-Buri restaurant, (one of the best sea food restaurants in Israel) there is an Ice Cream shop (same owner) and then phone the hotel and ask them to help you.
Gorgeous hotel. Most amazing room I ever stayed in. High ceiling which makes modern rooms look confining. Restored drawings on ceilings. Beautiful. Great showers. Large and comfortable beds. Delicious breakfast.
Poor neighborhood (and dirty alleys) but seems friendly, like an old Italian movie.
Do not miss the flight of Swallows on the roof at sunset.
It's fun and interesting to be in Acre, especially at nights of the Ramadan fast.
The MED center has a new branch of the great Arabic El-Babor (a.k.a Al-Babor, AlBabor, El-Babour etc., one of the top five Arab restaurants in Israel) restaurant and it's also very pleasant to sit in the Cafe Neto Coffee. If going to Uri-Buri or El-Babor reserve a space, especially on Ramadan.
Warning: we had our car messed with when parked for one night at the Hagana st. near the hote.
- 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
