“Overrated!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Definitely overrated!Very far away from the city center which makes it very inconvenient if you don't have a car to facilitate your transfers.
The rooms were small and the beds quite hard to lay on.
The staff was very friendly though.

Overall our room was clean enough but there was so much noise from the athletes who were practicing that made it very hard to bare!
I do not recommend it.

Was a little disappointed with this accommodation, no way was it worth 42 euros per night, had no drinking facilities in the room, no clothes hangers in the wardrobes, had to request some bath towels. When I saw the pictures of the rooms on booking.com looked very nice and good location, BUT when you get there very cold building bear cement walls and ceilings in the rooms. I would not suggest people using for a business trip - it really is only for athletes that just require somewhere to lay their heads.

Room Tip: Sorry no tip

Not sure why all the positive reviews but it is far from anywhere, rock hard beds, basic prison cell-like rooms, with nothing in them, not even basic tea and coffee, or basic toiletries, or drinking water!!!!! Plus on the weekends expect football holligans - the weekend before I arrived they had ripped up the hotel sign and injured police (apparently when they finally arrive to help out). and expensive too!!! For the price of the prison cell room yu can do better are Almond Suies, Cleapatra and Holiday Inn.

It was also nearly impossible to see, becaue of lack of signage - I drove around the stadium twice before stopping and asking someone! Even 100m away not anybody had heard of it and I only got to the front door through luck. Also nowhere to park the car close by - the parking lots are for the sorts stadium so not convenient and I think not safe for parking the car.

Cheap, cheap plastic furniture, little bedside lamps that you wouldn't have in a refugee camp, cheap stuent desk with a plastic chair - maybe to hose it off?? AWFUL!!

There is absolutely nothing to do in the locaity, no shops, no sightseeing - nothing but the sports stadium.

NOT RECOMMENDED

Room Tip: Turn around and go back to Nicosia and try Hilton, Holiday Inn, Almond Suites or Cleaopatra and leav...

Although the Allegra GSP is outside the city center, you will have a hard time finding a more unusual hotel anywhere. It is a very easy drive into the old city (one turn and it's a straight shot), but what makes Allegra unusual is it's setting. It is built into the U. of Cyprus Stadium, and all the rooms overlook the playing field. Where else can you look out your window and watch pole vaulters practice?
It is a no frills hotel but immaculate and well maintained. Free wi-fi worked well as did the plumbing. My only complaint was the TV, which is over-the-air only and (at least in my room) of terrible quality. There is a large common area with a small coffee and liquor bar.
If you are without a car, I would think twice about Allegra because there is really nothing within walking distance. However, there are two huge shopping malls a very short drive away with everything one might need. If you do have a car, however, parking in Nicosia is not a problem. Even in the center of the old city (which is where you would want to explore) municipal parking lots abound and the rates are very low (I think about 1 Euro for 3 hours). Be advised that driving that area is a challenge with most streets very narrow and used equally for cars and pedestrians, but it's worth the effort.

I opted to stay at this sports stadium hotel a couple of miles out of Nicosia when on business in Cyprus, was pleased I did, a little out of the way, but no traffic congestion like you have to suffer like in Nicosia itself.
I stopped in one of the 2 hotel suites for a total of 3 weeks and they where very comfortable and spacious (seperate bedroom, lounge with fridge 3 peice and coffe tabel, 2 tv's and bathroom) I cannot recommend the staff high enough as they made me feel very welcome staying as a single traveller and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast only, simple but adequate, dinner was only on offer generally when there was a sports event on or catering for guest teams. Added value was the free wi fi and being able to work from my room at a desk. I will certainly stop here again.
Downside is there really is nothing around you and therefore a taxi or car is needed to get anywhere for meals or entertainment.

New, clean, quiet(no sports event the day I was there). Big rooms, bid beds. View to the training fields of the GSP Sport Center. Big lobby to the 1st and 2nd floor with satelite tv, bar, wi-fi. It was easy to find (it will be more easy when the road constructions finish). You need to have a car to go to Lefkosia.
