A fulfillment of a dream..The Efendi hotel is the fulfillment of a dream long held by Uri Jeremias, chef and proprietor of the famed Uri Buri restaurant. Complex preservation and restoration work over a period of eight years gave birth to a gorgeous, breathtaking pearl that was truly a labor of love. Thought was invested in each and every detail of the preservation work, which was performed under the supervision of the Antiquities Authority. Artisans were specially flown in from Italy in order to undertake this delicate work, as well as the restoration of the beautiful ceilings. Also preserved
was a fresco of the city of Istanbul, which was found at the site. The fresco had been created in 1878 in honor of the new Orient Express train station.
The exclusive boutique hotel has 12 special rooms and succeeds in catching a special light, the air of the sea, the fortitude stored in the ancient bricks, and stunning scenery. The result simply transcends the imagination – a perfect blend of past, present, and future that conveys a stylish ambience of tranquility and intimacy.
Overlooking the historic city walls and the Mediterranean..Nestled in the picturesque narrow lanes of Acre, the Efendi Hotel overlooks the historic city walls and the magnificent Mediterranean Sea beyond. The unique structure of this hotel combines two ancient houses that have hundreds of years of history stored within their walls. These houses were meticulously reconstructed and merged into one building before being converted into a boutique hotel.

The Spa..For maximum relaxation and enjoyment, the hotel features a spa treatment room for couples, as well as an original 400-year-old Turkish bath that has been painstakingly preserved. An intimate wine bar has been built in the restored and renovated wine cellar, which dates from the Crusader era.
Spa & HammamComplete your vacation experience with a variety of spa treatments to relax the body and soul. The treatments are conducted by the best, most professional treatment providers and masseurs. Several treatments are performed in the hotel's own traditional Turkish bath, which is almost 400 years old. The traditional bath treatment is performed on a warm platform in a marble-lined room, and begins with a gentle body peel, including cleansing of the upper layers of the skin, scrubbing with soap to enhance circulation, and muscle massage. Hot and cold water are sprinkled on the body during the treatment, which, according to the best traditional methods, uses especially high temperatures to release toxins.
Wine & DineQuality food is an inseparable part of the Efendi Hotel experience, and an especially rich culinary selection is available for the guests. The day begins with a wonderful breakfast consisting of a selection of delicacies served in an extraordinary atmosphere – around a knights' table in a centuries-old room that dates from the early Ottoman Empire era.
The Wine BarDescending the steps into the wine bar feels like a journey through time. Hundreds of bottles of fine Israeli wines lay next to one another in the original arches of this 900-year-old cellar, which contains remnants from the days of the Byzantine Empire. Exquisite tapas and small appetizers are served along with the wine tastings, enabling guests to easily forget that they are in modern-day Israel and not at a Crusader feast.
Tapas and wine evenings are regularly held at the wine bar, as are tastings and guidance for wine enthusiasts, conducted by the foremost sommeliers in the country.
Uri Buri RestaurantThe Uri Buri restaurant is, quite simply, an Acre institution. Housed among the walls of a 400-year-old Ottoman house on the shores of ancient Acre, this is one of the most beautiful places in the country. For over 21 years, Uri Buri has served the best fish and seafood the sea has to offer, and it is not by chance that its reputation has spread far and wide as one of the best fish restaurants in the country. It is now a "must visit" spot among restaurants in the North.
In addition to the marvelous dishes, you can also find a selection of praiseworthy Israeli wines, impressive service, and an idyllic atmosphere.
