Efendi Hotel In Acre, Israel Wins 2017 Travelers’ Choice Award, Tripadvisor’s Highest Honor

February 9, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email
The Efendi Hotel, a meticulously restored Ottoman-era palace transformed into a stunning boutique hotel, was presented with a 2017 Travelers’ Choice Award, TripAdvisor’s highest honor.

The award places Efendi Hotel in the top 1% bracket of hotels featured on TripAdvisor and a winner in the categories of Top 25 Small Hotels – Middle East, Top 25 Small Hotels – Israel and Top 25 Luxury Hotels – Israel.
The award follows Uri Buri restaurant in Acre, Israel being selected as the ‘Best Restaurant In The Middle East’ as part of the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards 2016.
Nestled in the picturesque Old City of Acre, the Efendi Hotel is a 12-room boutique property overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the fulfillment of a dream long held by Uri Jeremias, chef and proprietor of the famed Uri Buri restaurant. Efendi Hotel features a subterranean, Byzantine-era wine cellar, Hamam and spa, and is the combination of two ancient houses that have hundreds of years of history stored within their walls. 
Complex preservation and restoration work over a period of eight years with supervision by the Israel Antiquities Authority gave birth to a gorgeous, breathtaking pearl that was truly a labor of love.
Owned and operated by Chef Uri “Buri” Jeremias, Uri Buri, the namesake restaurant offers distinct Western Galilean cuisine focused upon sea-to-table seafood and fish dishes. Uri Buri is housed within a restored 400-year-old, Ottoman-era residence overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in the Old City of Acre, formerly the capital of the Second Crusader Kingdom.
