EasyHotel is a very budget place to stay in Larnaca, very clean and modern. I think is the best choice in Larnaka. The hotel is near the beach, about 5 min from Finikoudes. Every room has AC free of charge, this being an important advantage, because the temperature is very high even in the night. The bathroom is a little bit small but enough for 1 person. The room is spacious and bright.
TV, extra towels and changing sheets is extra charge.
Is a non-smoking hotel, but if you shut the door at the balcony you can smoke without any problems.
The staff is very friendly and helpfull (we had some problems with the key-card, and the receptionist came in our room to show us how to use it and how the AC works).
There are a few markets near the hotel, the nearest being at Frangiorgio hotel.
In September the sea water is very warm and clean. You can stay on the beach till midnight. :)
You find many places to eat, especially on Finikoudes, the food is very tasty and they've got large portions.
We recommend Alexander restaurant (near Larnaka Fort) right in front of the beach. The staff is also very friendly and they give you little attentions from the house.
There are many fish-restaurants toward Mackenzie Beach (airport).
Larnaka is well connected with the most important cities on the island (Aya Napa, Limassol, Nicosia, Paphos). The main bus station is on Finikoudes and the buses come every hour. Tickets are cheap, you buy them from the driver, and the distance between the cities are under 70 km. Tip: there is no rule about taking the bus, you have to catch a place very quick, before all the places are occupied, or you will take the next bus.
You should go to Aya Napa at the water park, for a boat trip around the greek part of the island (you will see Famagusta - the ghost town and you can swim and feed the fish) and for the night life, the second Ibiza. Nicosia (the only european divided capital) is also interesting, especially the turk part, where you should go with the ID card. Limassol is not the best option, we didn't like it.
In Larnaka, the 4-5 star hotels are outside the town, between Larnaka and Aya Napa, we don't recommend them.
In conclusion, EasyHotel is a good place to start your adventure in Cyprus.
