stayed with family breakfast was very nice every morning, the staff was polite, helpful and professional. The room was exactly as described. Requested an extra clean upper floor room, which was granted. We have no complaints about the hotel. Thanks to Efendi hotel and staff they made our stay in Istanbul a memorable one.
Very warm staff. Clean. Comfort. Best location of istanbul.
Nothing bad we wouldn't like.

good location,5min walk from Sultanahmet T1 tram station. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room is small but delicate and very clean. It offers free postcards.
We are Khalid & Esraa The staff members are the most helpful and friendly members we have ever seen .. smiley and nice (Mellissa, Burchu, & other guys we do not remember their names) The breakfast buffet is excellent and include everything we expect althought it is small The design of the hotel and the rooms are modern and nice .. we like it too much The owners of the hotel are also friendly and have a nice communication with the guests The prices also are perfect if we compair them with others
The hotel's location was terrific, very very near the tourist spots and metro station, as well as resto. They have a terrace rooftop with a nice view of entire city. The bed was comfortable. The staff were all friendly. The breakfast venue was so nice, the terrace cafe.
The hotel is located 5min walking distance from all tourist attractions and public transport. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Also the view from the breakfast terrace is magical.
The only thing that could maybe be improved is the WiFi signal, which was very weak in our room.
Clean, comfort , good location, friendly staff
-Staff members at this hotel not only listened to our general chit-chatting and answered questions about the surrounding area, like I would expect in any hotel, but also made reservations for us according to our wishes, were generally amazingly friendly, didn't charge us for a little overtime in the end and on top of that taught us to play backgammon. -Airport shuttle service is not that pricy. -Breakfast buffet is lovely. Included in the room rate, until 11am and they won't throw you out spot on!!!
I'd suggest to leave the very touristy area in order to get a decent Turkish meal. Not the fault of the hotel obviously, but around the Hagia Sophia, we didn't really enjoy the food. Getting on the tram for 10 minutes across the Galata bridge to Beyoglu is the better idea!
My friends and I visited Turkey for 6 days and our stay in Efendi Hotel had been the best stay to wrap our trip. We arrived quite early on the day we checked in and were planning to just leave our luggage before exploring the city. But then the staff offered us free breakfast and even told us that our room was ready at around 11 am. The staffs are very kind, the facility and service was great, and breakfast was perfect (with a view of Ayasofia from the dining terrace). A space on the rooftop was also perfect to enjoy the view of Ayasofia. Hotel location is good that you can reach many tourist spots by walking. It is located on the side street, so it won't get noisy because of the traffic or else. Our triple room was in the basement, but there was a nice balcony, which makes it doesn't feel like we're in the basement at all. Room as well as the bathroom are clean and well-equipped. Would love to stay again in this hotel if we get the chance to visit Istanbul again. Totally recommend this hotel for anyone who is planning to visit Istanbul!
The water in the shower is a bit weak.
Not enough lights in the bedroom and bathroom :
Location was great, staff on the day were very helpful and friendly especially the young lady on the desk. Breakfast was good. We only had one night and were able to leave our cases to explore. The main positive was the friendliness of the staff though.
I think we booked what was referred to as a family suite, ok, but a little small for a suite, and no lounge area, just two bedrooms and bathroom.
Front desk staff, especially Sahin, were very helpful with information about sites to see and how to get around in Istanbul.
The location was perfect
Location Friendly staff Terrace view
Very small rooms
