Fodor's Review

Two notable Ottoman-era palaces overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean from the Israeli town of Akko have been united to form this uniquely charming boutique hotel, opened in 2012 with 12 tastefully furnished guest rooms graced with ornamented ceilings and latticed woodwork. Efendi's lovely setting is the result of over eight years of work by a joint team of Venetian and Israeli artisans, who restored the two historic homes–erected over a Crusader vault–with great attention

to detail, adding chic, modern elements to the opulent frame. While the old Crusader vault is now the wine cellar and bar; don't miss the restored 1878 fresco of the city of Istanbul, which was found during the renovation. From the gourmet breakfast to a massage in the renovated 400 year-old hamam, service is impeccable. The location in the walled old town offers water view and proximity to the souk and harbor.
