“Nice view...that's about it...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

This hotel was recommended to me based on the proximity to the airport. I was told the view was great, and the bathrooms are small. That was kind of an understatement. The bathrooms are literally converted closets that I (at only 5'10" and 115lbs) had trouble even fitting into. The air conditioning units barely cooled the room down, and are not usable until 7pm. The hotel interior looks like it hasn't been touched since the 1950s. On a positive note, the views are fantastic, the price is reasonable, the room was pretty clean (stained sheets) and the staff was friendly. No elevator, so be prepared to lug your bags up the stairs. There's WiFi, but only in the lobby. Overall, I absolutely could not wait to get out of there and back to the airport. This hotel is pretty much on par with an average hostel, and I would only recommend it for short overnight stays if you need a place near the airport. It has potential based on the location, but would need some major updating.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the airport and the only hotel in Larnaka that did not get a bad review on Tripadvisor, because it had gotten no reviews until now. Yes, it is close to the airport and right on the beach. You can fall asleep to the waves gently lapping on the beach and wake up the same way, but only if you bring your own screen door or are immune to mosquito bites. It is on the flight path of the airport, although most hotels in this area would be. The rooms are small with dated furniture and usually at night, there were issues with sewage smells. Fortunately we were not there long enough to have it affect our whole vacation. If you want cheap digs for a night or two close to the airport, than you get what you pay for. We found staying in Limassol and driving to the airport (approx 1 hour) just as convenient.
