Because I had failed to get myself organized ahead of time, I needed a last-minute place to stay in Larnaca. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that this was a major holiday, so most of the big places were booked. My cabbie and I were on a mission to find a place and eventually we did: the Lucky Hotel in Larnaca.
When I arrived, the owner offered to show me two of his rooms. One was at €85 and had a living room, kitchenette, big bedroom, bathroom, balcony, and a view of the sea. The other was at €55 and had a view of the land, an en suite bathroom, fridge, TV, and balcony. Seeing as I only needed a place to crash for the night, I opted for the €55 room.
Overall, the room was just that: a place to crash for a coupel of nights. Everything was fine and I had what I needed. My only slight annoyance is that the bed was not terribly comfortable and the pillows are very flat. It is clear that the rooms have been upgraded; if the owner also upgrades the bedding, they’ll have quite a nice little place.
Just so you know, I got some flak from the locals who -- never having heard of this hotel -- suggested that it may be a bit seedy and, perhaps, pay-by-the-hour. Nonsense! The place is perfectly fine, family-friendly, and within an easy walk to the beach and a few local eateries. If you’re looking for a place to crash for a few days, this place will do.
