Overlooking the charming narrow lanes of the Old Acre, the Efendi Hotel harbors a treasure trove of history. The historic hotel once served as a palace where rulers and rich Ottomans circa 19th century once lived.

Reflecting its past glory, the facade of the building is decorated with ornamental ceilings, marble floors and intricate drawings. As you walk through the hotel, you will be treated with coastal views, the ancient city of Acre and a hint of the regal Western Galilee mountains in the distance.

Each of the 12 rooms are custom-fitted with authentic Egyptian cotton linens, goose down pillows and blankets, pampering towels, robes and slippers. The marble-lined bathrooms come with freestanding bathtubs, large showers and towel warmers. Other room amenities include LCD TV, DVD player, wireless internet access, safety box, espresso machine and excellent mini-bar selection.

Another key hallmark of the hotel is the excellent restaurant. The Uri Buri restaurant is located just a 5-minute walk from the main hotel area, known for serving one of the finest seafood in the whole of Israel.
