I spent my autumn holiday here and, reading the reviews presented here, I realize I was the must unfortunate tourist in this hotel. It seems that everyone got a good room, (i.e. in THE BACK of the hotel, AWAY from the street!), but me! I got the room nr. 113, exactly above the reception!
THE ROOM no. 113: is essentially good, large with balcony, clean (designed for disabled persons - which I am not! Because of that there was no bath tube, just a pipe for collecting the water, which did not functioned properly). It has hair dryer/small fridge/kettle for coffee/tea. The beds have awful matteresses, but you can remove them.
No transparent curtain, just 2 curtains which block the sun and being seen from the opposite building (some filthy hostel).
THE ROOM IS VERY NOISY, ALL THE CARS AND MOTORBIKES IN LARNACA RAN RIGHT UNDER MY BALCONY MAKING A LOT OF NOISE, HONKING AND SPEEDING UP ALL NIGHT LONG!!
Moreover: the A/C is set so that it works only as long as the balcony door is closed. If this one opened, the A/C stops all by itself! If I closed the balcony door, I had to set the A/C to 30 degrees C, but no noise at least; if I wanted fresh air, I had to stand the car noise and no A/C! It was terrible!
THE TV: don't wait for too much, just ZDF in German and BBC in English, Fashion program and some 3-4 channels in Greek, all of them working like hell!
THE RESTAURANT: The breakfast is rich, pretty British like, but enough to suite every taste, in my opinion (good croissants!).
I payed 12 E/day to have lunch or dinner... big mistake, the prices of the restaurant of the hotel are very high and it's 99% fast food; go downtown to eat: plenty of places!
Overall, the hotel looks and is OK, very clean, the stuff not so helpful, they try to please everyone, (including the group of young tourists who made a lot of noise in the hotel, as if alone on the planet, singing and playing the accordion at 1 A.M., being encouraged by the receptionist!)
You can have a wonderful holiday in this hotel, JUST ON THE CONDITION to get a room in the back!!! This insures a good night sleep! Possibility to get such a room??? Just 50-50%!
As for me I would not recommand it, I will NEVER go back there because of the noise! Plus: this hotel does NOT have a swimming pool, being a city hotel!
Advice to the manager of the hotel: ask the police to nail down on the ground 2 sets of rubber carpets to limit the cars' speed, so that cars would not make so much noise at night and disturb your clients!
TIP: Despite the great fuss about them, Finikoudes and Makenzy beaches are not the best beaches in the world. They look just like wetty plots of land with no crops, poor children hardly have some sand for playing.
