“Excellent value, but way out of old town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

I paid 45 euros in off-season, early March 2012. The woman on duty Sat. night and Sun. morning was a treasure house of information, clearly conveyed in good English. She was terrific. Breakfast was excellent, a nice choice offering eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, etc. A full breakfast in a very pleasant room. But--the room was small and tightly arranged. Bathroom by contrast was huge. (However, there was the hazard of a slanted-up entry of a few inches into the bathroom, tiled the same as the bathroom floor. I put a T-shirt there, to remind me, or I would have tripped repeatedly coming or going--as I did the first two times; not safe for old people.)
Very quiet place in a very quiet suburban neighborhood (at least one taxi driver couldn't find it on his own). I left after one night because it is so very faaaar from old town, which is where everything is located that a tourist would want to see. You either waste a long time walking back and forth, or spend at least 15 euros round trip for a taxi. Better spend that money on a centrally located hotel, such as Centrum or Rimi, both of which I stayed in next and enjoyed them both.

It is in a nice location.
The rooms are very clean.
The most worthy to mention is the staff , they are very helpful and always doing their best to satisfy you especially at the reception.
I am an frequent traveller to Nicosia and I always book at Crown Inn.

An average quality hotel, at a cosy and quiet area of Nicosia, at a walking distance from city centre and old city of Nicosia.
Bus stop (line 23) is nearby as well.
The rooms were of average quality - pretty good for a 2-star hotel and the breakfast was adequate to hotel's level.
Pretty helpful staff and good cleaning service were the main advantages of the hotel.
Generally, it was a good value for money, but certainly at a price no more than 75 euros for a double room with breakfast.

I was made aware of this hotel from a list provided by my conference organisers. My stay did not begin particularly well. I arrived at noon on a Saturday to be told that it was the chef's day off so had to manage on his pre-prepared sandwich (lunch) and Greek salad which I stored in my room fridge for dinner. Breakfast was very basic as well with the only major "fresh" options for much of the time being eggs (scrambled) or eggs (fried--sunnyside up) in addition to cereals, cheese, cold meats etc. Food that I ordered separately was well made and in good quantity.

The staff is generally friendly and obliging especially in calling organizations/entities that do not converse in English on one's behalf.

The rooms are very basic as well with the linen clean but old. The bathrooms are tiny with even less space in the shower section. The TV carries mostly Greek channels. I loved its very intimate baclony where two people could sit at a squeeze which gave a good view of life passing by.

Prospective visitors are advised to take a good supply of drinking water Like other hotels in Nicosia (including the /4/5 star hotels) one has to buy bottled water at rates that are higher than the market rate.

This is on the whole a homely inn for visitors with small budgets.

We arrived very late at night at Nicosia and needed a place to spend the night. It was inexpensive, and what we got for the money was ok.
We booked the place around 8pm online, and because their office closes earlier than that, they did not receive our reservation. When we arrived at the hotel, it was fully booked, but they gave us "the suite".
I read on tripadvisor that the hotel is newly renovated, which is probably not the case with the suite. It was in decent shape, everything worked well, it was clean, but the furniture seemed to be a little older (incl. canopy bed) and the room felt a little muggy. We had two balconies facing the street, and the room was quiet during the night.
The breakfast was simple.
