“Great look and great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We stayed here for a night at either end of our trip to Cyprus and it was a great way to start and end the holiday. It's about 10 mins from the airport (15euro taxi ride) and just around the corner from the main water front of the city. We had a standard double the first night, which was smallish but comfortable with a nice bathroom. Only problem there was the shower sprayed everywhere and then that leaked into the room itself, making the floor quite slippery...not the best.
We were upgraded to an executive double for our return night and that was just lovely. Big room, big double bed, nice sofa area and huge bathroom with a shower and double jacuzzi bath. Very comfortable. Both rooms were clean, well laid out and very modern.
The staff were friendly and very helpful and the breakfast was great. The breakfast room is on the top floor with views of the waterfront.
This hotel is great value for money. We originally booked a superior double for our second night and that was 77e. A bargain compared to lots of other places.

This is a nice modern hotel in the centre of town one street back from the main promenade. Unfortunately any nice views are obscured by the McDonalds restaurant in front. The room was modern and trendy with free wifi, there is a gym downstairs and breakfast was great.

The hotel is nicely situated in a little back street of central Larnaca. From there everything is within walking distance, which is a good thing since the car traffic in the center is very crowded and full of one-way streets.They have free underground parking spaces, but book in advance if you want to secure a spot as they only have 6. Otherwise there is a rather large guarded parking lot 10m ahead of the hotel that only costs 5€/day.

Our standard room was spotless and nicely furnished, if a little small, and had good wireless connection. There was no view, but for 68€ a night I wouldn't complain. The air con however was very noisy, so I had to wear earplugs all night.

The breakfast area was surprisingly nice on the top floor,  with a little outdoor area. Food on the other hand was not terrific, just good enough.

Staff was welcoming, which is appreciated since it's unfortunately not always the case in Cyprus. Overall this hotel is a very good choice if you're in Larnaca for a short stay and don't want to spend a fortune in a beach resort.

Room Tip: Secure your parking space in advance as they only have 6!

Had a super 2 night stay at the Achilleos hotel, for a hotel rating of only 2 stars it was better than some 4 star rated hotels we have stayed in. The rooms were very clean & comfortable, super comfy bed. Bathroom was ultra modern with a super shower, all toiletries supplied. We were pleasantly surprised at breakfast, a very extensive choice in very pleasant surroundings. The staff in all departments we met were very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to all and on my next trip to Larnaca i will use it again with pleasure.

This hotel has ultra trendy, chic rooms with extra comfortable beds and has the advantage of being in one of the most central locations in Larnaca. This I would say is for independant travellers wanting luxurious rooms for a base. The only reason I have not given it a 5* rating is there isn't a proper bar or restaurant (though I believe these are being built). There is not a pool either but if you going to the beach a few hundred yards away or getting out and about then that won't be a problem but if you want a 'resort' type hotel then this probably is not for you. There is a lovely upstairs breakfast area which again is fresh and funky. The staff here too are very helpful and nothing was a problem. For the right person it's great - we loved it !

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony. If though the bathroom is smaller (shower only) you'll get more s...

I came here in October, markedly off-season as was reflected in the low price (€59 per night, on a Sunday admittedly). I got a warm reception when I got there, and the reality of the modern and stylish look of the room and general ambience of the place was even better than the photos on their website promised. The room was spacious, clean and stylish, with all the mod cons you expect these days, and a balcony, which was a lovely bonus. Breakfast was varied and pretty good, and it was served on the top floor with views over the city and the sea. Staff were friendly and most helpful to me. They even helped organise my onward travel. Overall a great experience, at surprisingly low cost. Did I mention that it is 3 minutes from the beach? Highly recommended!

I was looking for a reasonably priced but nice hotel close to Larnaca Airport where I could stay for one night. This place was perfect. It's by no means a luxury hotel but is very nice, extremely comfortable, safe, in a good location (around the corner from the waterfront with lots of shops and restaurants), and has very helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent. Everything was very fresh (right off the stove), nothing was greasy, undercooked or overcooked, and there was plenty of variety, whether you wanted a traditional English breakfast of bacon and eggs or a Cypriot breakfast of yoghurt, fruit and breads. I would happily stay at this hotel again. At EUR 73.00 for the night (inclusive of breakfast and parking) it was good value.
