Great location, Great breakfast, kind friendly helpful staff
Location is great, very close to all the tourist attractions. Staff is very helpful. View from the rooftop is cool. Breakfast menu was good.
Poor wifi signals in the room we stayed in, we had to sit very close to the room door for any connectivity. We were not able to sleep properly because of the noise, mostly from the cleaning staff in the morning.
The staff were particularly hospitable and accommodating. Location is brilliant. Breakfast on the bright, well decorated roof terrace with amazing views of the Hagia Sophia was a lovely surprice.
Standard double beds and bedrooms were on the small side.
It's located on a quiet street in Sultan Ahmet but only a couple of minutes away from the tram station and Hagia Sophia. Room was small but very clean and tastefully decorated.Staff were very nice. I would stay here if we were to travel to turkey again.
Breakfast buffet was not outstanding , kind of mediocre. Need to add more items and nay be work on their omelette making skills for which they charge one Euro. You have to take stairs to go down into the lobby from street level.That makes it unaccessible to elderly or disabled travellers.
Efendi Hotel was a reminder of how lovely the Turkish people are. The Hotel is Contemporary Turkish Décor with a great location, close to everything. The staff were fabulous and couldn't do enough for us.
There was nothing I didn't like.
This is on a quiet side street. Great staff. Would go again
Nothing not good
Very clean, very kind staff and excellent location for visiting the sights around Sultanahmed.
Poor lighting in bathroom for make up. As soon as I mentioned this however, the staff tried to improve it by installing stronger light bulbs.
The staff could not be more helpful and with this location, you can easily walk to all of the top attractions (Aya Sofia, Blue mosque, cisterns etc) within 5 minutes. Great breakfast as well!
Get your room above ground as below ground has a bit of a musty odour.
Great breakfast and dining area Excellent staff Centrally located in the old city
Noisy rooms Really hard and small beds made for uncomfortable sleeping and a sore back.
They failed to reach us for a wake up call.
Our one night stay was very comfortable and welcoming . Breakfast on the roof top perfect with a good selection of food.,location was with in walking distance to things we needed to see and do. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful, considerate and accommodating. We would return.
Close to most sightseeing spots. Near trams and shopping.
Housekeeping is sloppy.
This is a great place to stay. Off the main street, quiet, the staff is fantastic. I would stay here again. Very professional and helpful.
Initially we had to switch rooms because of a/c problems. But it was all handled.
hotel and staff were execellent...Miss Burgu the manageress was the best !
The location was truly great in the heart of Sultanahmet. The panoramic view from the terrace was amazing. Everything which is Must Be Seen was in walking distance. The room was quiet small for 2 adults.
Bed was narrow (140 x 200 cm) so you should be fit enough to feel comfortable :) Bathroom was also small but it was not a problem for us. During our stay, there was some reconstruction ongoing in the neighborhood. Breakfast was average. Basically, every day the same meals were served.
Friendly staff, modern facilities, excellent location close to everything a tourist would want
Big family with children on the same floor as us.. Thus noise all night- suggestion do similar bookings on same floor?
The smallness of our room
So glad I went with this hotel. We had an excellent stay. The staff are friendly and helpful from beginning to end. The room was always clean and comfortable. Breakfast was yummy. And the location was perfect in the centre of all the attractions while still being quiet
The rooms aren't the largest but they have everything necessary.
Wonderful staff Great location Nice, clean, modern amenities Very nice breakfast buffet was included
the room was a bit small by US standards, but I wouldn't expect more in such a great location at such a great price.
The location is good. Staff is helpful but not warm at all.
The room is tiny. Restroom is super small. And the value is not really good cuz we paid a lot for it. And the shuttle bus need to pick up lots of people to different hotels. And it's not cheap.
Bed was too small
Very helpful staff, very friendly.
