“Great - once you find it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

A very comfortable and nicely renovated hotel in a good location. The staff are very friendly, offering a genuine welcome and great willingness to help with any questions. I thought it was value for money as a good breakfast (in a wonderful location) and parking (reserve by email or telephone) and use of a gym were included in the reasonable price. As noted by others, it is in a good location for the beach or town of Larnaca. The biggest problem was finding it; we arrived after dark and negotiating Larnaca's one way system was tortuous - the hotel is down a very minor side street and if you miss it you have to go round again (several times in our case). It was also a little noisy on Friday and Saturday nights - but it was revellers outside rather than guests.

I stayed two nights at Hotel Achilleos in Larnaca while on a conference. It was an excellent and most enjoyable experience. The rooms are very comfortable, technology friendly (wifi included) and friendly for international travelers (power outlets accept international plugs etc.). Very good location with the beach less than a lock away, and the airport about 15 minutes away at a maximum. The customer service is outstanding - very helpful. The breakfast was also wonderful, and the wait staff most friendly and helpful (e.g. I was looking for espresso coffee but the machine seemed to be out of order but one of the staff recognized that maybe I was looking for it, and was so quick to get it from a machine downstairs. The hotel did not have a view of the ocean from my room but there is a wonderful view form the breakfast room. I highly recommend this hotel!

I assume it was from insecticide or fumigation?

great service, decent breakfast and passable rooms but nothing could make up for the awful smell of the hotel

too bad about the odor in the halls as otherwise the hotel was decent but hard to believe it is #1????????????????

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on your stay.
We regret to hear you had such a negative experience during your visit.
We understand there could be a strange smell at a given time, but I personally assure you it is not a permanent situation.
We would like to clarify that our hotel had a grand renovation and reopened as a luxurius city hotel with excellent service and reviews.
Allow me to point out that the first position in ranking is the result of the hard work of all the employees in Achilleos City Hotel.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards

Probably my first experience of Larnaca and the hotel was getting lost. Larnaca itself is a warren of one way street and this hotel is located on a very small back street. IF YOU'RE GOING TO DRIVE TO THE HOTEL, ENSURE YOU RESERVE A GPS.

That said, the hotel is right off the water and next to a McDonald's (no smell and nothing awful, just a landmark) but it is very tough to find. Parking is very hard, and while the hotel offers free parking, one needs to reserve it. Even so, that doesn't guaranty you will have a spot, but it gives you "standing". SO if you anticipate needing parking, email ahead.

The hotel is less than a block off the beach and staff is really helpful with advice on nearby restaurants and sights.There is plenty to do with in a short walk.

The hotel is clean, but perhaps not perfectly maintained--a window would not stay shut, the "minibar," a mini vending machine in the room, was broken.The hotel has nice fixtures, lots of stone, the shower was really nice, and everything well designed. The breakfast buffet offered a nice selection of items. Staff was very nice and extra friendly.

Would I stay here a gain? If I had to go to Larnaca and I had a GPS, yes I would.

Room Tip: I chose a superior room and it did not have an ocean view. I think I would forgoe that the next time
