If you want a resort hotel with pool, restaurant etc, this isn't for you - but if you just need somewhere to stay which is safe, well-located in Larnaca, has everything you actually need, and all at a good price, then this place fits the bill. It's 5 mins walk from the main bus stop on the promenade (for local buses and intercity buses) - easy to find if you've arrived at Larnaca airport and get a local bus in to the town (costs 1 euro), as the buses pass near the hotel before they reach the seafront, so you see the big "easyhotel" sign and can walk back to it.
Although the hotel doesn't have a bar or restaurant, there are cafes etc right beside it as it's in the town. The main sights of Larnaca are all within easy walking distance.
The rooms have comfy beds, basic furnishing, heating/AC as required, and a tv (use of the tv requires extra payment). The en-suite shower room is very small, but as I was only in there to use the toilet, sink or shower rather than spend my holiday in there, the cramped space didn't matter. Might be a problem for anyone who is obese or has mobility problems though.
Overall though, I was perfectly happy with the hotel given the price I was paying - I just used it as somewhere to sleep at night whilst during the day going on trips to Lefkosia, Limassol etc, and so didn't need to waste money paying for all the extra stuff you'd get in a more upmarket hotel. The only problem at all that I had was that noise really carries as there are no carpeted floors - slamming doors and couples shouting at each other caused a lot of racket one night. But as long as you get considerate neighbours, it's fine!
