“The worst hotel i have ever visited”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food in the "restaurant" is inedible, rooms are dirty, there is a kitchen in the room which has a kettle but no glasses or cups. A toaster and a fridge but no cutlery. There was a glass though in the bathroom which was so dirty and had toothpaste marks in and on. Only good thing what I can remember, was staff who was very helpful with everything.

They are saying it is 4 stars, we think it is 1.5 the photos taken will convince you. First of all, the street which is in front of hotel is under construction and will be finished in two-year, so to reach hotel with car is difficult... there is no private parking near, they say you can park everywhere, but there are private residence parkings around and the sport's club parking, so you need to leave your car almost in the street. First we have got the room, where heating was not working properly (first days of February were cold days 7degrees evening) and all the balcony was full of water. The light sensor in the hall to reach the room also did not work. the room was furnished 20 years ago... We asked for more covers for bed but even after 2 hours nobody brought. We got nervous, because we were on holiday. So.... the circus had started... as we complained, they gave as the so called new apartments with two rooms, tv was in the kitchen... and to heat two rooms and the bathroom was too difficult. as we were not satisfied, the lady even told that is four stars and we paid less, and we want to have the holiday for free!!! It was too much! So we asked money back, but the man in reception told he can not do this, and offered other smaller room, we were tired so we agreed. In the last room the bathroom is in separate room, so to have a shower it was freezingly cold. up on the ceiling there was coming the green light, so we had to close it. We slept there two nights dreaming of going away... that is our story... actually, I can imagine how they give the stars for hotels?

As my title says, the hotel was not too bad. I only paid £23 a night so had no real expectations. The room was basic but clean. It was right on the beach and the walk into the centre of Larnaca took me around 30/40 minutes, although it was pretty flat and straight so nothing too strenuous.

They offered a shuttle to the airport which was convenient which cost €15. As others had mentioned they do charge for wifi - €5 for a day - not 24 hours.

Breakfast was much like the hotel - basic but did the job. It was a little busy but I could find a seat.

Also as another reviewer mentioned there was a party until 2am one night (maybe we were there at the same time?) which despite being on one of the top floors was pretty loud.

I had no issues with the service throughout my stay - the staff were very friendly upon check in and check out.

Location was very good for the airport though - I was in my room within 30 minutes of landing.

If I was to return to Larnaca I would consider staying here again, providing the price wasn't too much.

Really bad hotel. Indeed, it it near the beach, but a little bit far from the city center.
The room is not that clean, smells cigarette, the service is bad, you must pay to have internet access...

You allways have the impression that the room door is open as you here every single noise on the lobby.

There was a party last night in the hotel, one floor unedrneath, ... with no possiblity to sleep until the end .... at 2h am !!! I might have joined the party but it was just too bad !!
So, one advice, go and see elsewhere as the pics on the web site are really really not representative of the rooms !!

We were given this hotel by our travel company as the one we had booked was not open! I was a bit wary having read some of the reviews but I needn't have worried. The location is good, right opposite the beach and about a 25 minute walk into the centre of town. They are doing a lot of roadworks around this part of town so the walk is probably more difficult at the moment, as you have to walk over rubble etc. However, this should be only a temporary problem as they are widening the road ready for next season.
We had a one bedroom apartment which was quite spacious, although no sofa in the living room, just a table and chairs. There was a flat screen tv showing quite a few satellite channels. The kitchen area had a kettle and toaster when we arrived, but nothing else, not even plates or cutlery! However, when we asked at reception they were very charming and said that they would provide us with what we asked for and a microwave. There are no cooking facilities so you cannot truly self cater, but it's amazing what you can cook in a microwave!!! Breakfast was included which for us was an unexpected bonus and although a bit repetitive offered a good choice of hot and cold food.
Wifi is chargeable, but again, our travel company had told us that it was free. When I showed my email to the manager, he agreed to give us the voucher without charge and there was no hassle.
Altogether we thought that this was a very nice hotel for the price and would gladly stay there again!

Having arrived at the hotel just after 3pm - a little bit late for their Sunday lunch ending at 3pm - we were greated by a young waiter who - seeing out disapointment offered to make 2 plates up for us...............what a suprise at the feast set before us!

The variety of meats, vegetables, trimmings (all cooked to perfection) and condiments choice was phenominal - the food well presented on the plate and the service second to none. Albeit we missed out on sharing this dining exerience in amongst other diners, we were afforded the time to enjoy our 2 x course meal and coffee having tasteful seasonal background music playing throughout.

Disappointed that we had just missed thanking the young waiter in person for his excellent service and attention to detail - we have booked our table for a fortnights time and hope to get to thank himin person then!.

Highly recommended :-)

As our flight was cancelled, the hotel was booked by airlines, stayed there 2 nights. The rooms were clean, but not the newest. Some parts of the hotel have been probably renovated lately. The breakfast was too basic for 3* hotel, other meals were ok, just ok. Good location with the beach in front of it and a great one if you like observing planes - a bit disturbing during the night if you don't like it.
I don't know about the prices, but these stated on the door were definitely too high.
