The Efendi Hotel, luxurious 5-star hotel nestled in Acre’s historic old town

Occupying two breathtakingly renovated old buildings in Acre, Israel, the enchanting Efendi Hotel is a stunning boutique hotel with just 12 immaculate rooms. Meticulously restored from two former 19th-century palaces, this exclusive residence complete with Byzantine walls and cellars dating back to the Crusades, is reminiscent of the Ottoman era with strikingly ornate ceilings and a 19th-century fresco of Istanbul.

Not that it’s a museum, it’s a hotel with all the Egyptian cotton linens, goose down pillows and blankets, towel warmers and oversized showers that make a very old building a pleasant place to stay. The better rooms add views of the Old City, while some have decorative arched windows overlooking the Galilean hills or views of the sea and freestanding claw-footed bathtubs.

Several of The Efendi Hotel’s original features have been retained to create an ambiance of authenticity that reflects the uniqueness of historic Acre. Natural stone walls, glorious arched features, large windows and crisp, white rooms with comfy, leather chairs and pretty ceiling frescoes are the perfect mix of ancient and modern.
