“Good base for holiday in February”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The Paphinia Apartments made an excellent base for a walking holiday in February. The view from the apartment we had was second to none, a virtually uninterrupted view of the sea and old harbour. The apartment was fairly basic but as we were only using it for breakfast and to sleep it had everything we needed. There were cooking utensils.There was plenty of room for parking at the back in Feb and all other amenities -supermarket, restaurants, bars were close by so very convenient. There was no problem with noise despite being on the promenade.
We arrived late but had clear instructions to find access so this was not a problem. We were getting a late flight home and the office were extrememly helpful, sorting bookings out so that we could remain in the apartment until the evening.This was wonderful and gave us an extra day sight seeing without worrying about packing up. Other staff were friendly and helpful.
If you want an apartment to use as a place to sleep or to sit on the balcony with a beer or coffee, this is the place. In Feb it is extremely reasonably priced and we were lucky to be upgraded to a 2 bed apartment with a huge balcony.

Room Tip: Apartments with a view of both sea and old harbour are the nicest!

We've just returned from a week in the Paphinia apartments. The view is glorious and the apartments clean.The weather was not good ,but when the sun did come out and we could sit on the balcony, it was a delight. The location is excellent ,with many bars and restaurants within easy strolling distance.There is a supermarket behind the apartments which is very well stocked, but be warned, there are no shops open on Sundays,so if you arrive on Saturday evening you will have to have all your meals in the local restaurants as there is nothing at all in the apartment when you arrive - not even a bottle of water( but with prices so low who can complain?)The only suggestion I can make to the management is to tweak the small things eg there was only one tea towel provided for the whole week,no dishcloth,no egg cups,no mugs etc. The fact that there is a full kitchen, with washing machine, tumble dryer,full cooker and microwave more than makes up for the lack in other areas. We can fully recommend these apartments ,and intend returning next year.

We returned from a 3wk stay on 20th Jan!! We hopped on the local bus from the airport at 1euro each!!! Painless and it drops you at bus station on the harbour, so you are a 5min walk to the apertments, couldnt be more simple, and stress free 2, we actually sat and had a reviving coffee b4 we went 2 our Studio.........we didnt have the best of weather the 1st week and we found the apartment cold, but Tiffany couldnt have been more accomodating, Nico (priceless) brought us a Hallogen Heater as an extra, then we were moved 2 a 2bdroom Apartment!!! The Studio wasnt the problem I hasten 2 add, it was the weather that made it uncomfortable as the AC only warmed the front part and the Studios are huge!!! The staff couldnt have been more helpful, Nina the cleaner is a precious lady and Nico will go the extra mile for you if you have any little teething problems, what more could you ask for?The Paphinia couldnt be better placed for reaching averything, its on your doorstep, we hopped on a few buses on the cloudy days and had a little sightseeing tour lol We found THE MOORINGS on the Harbour front to be the best place 2 eat, the service is 2nd to none, and the food is excellent, a gem of a place, and the seating is so, so comfy, when its windy you have huge gas heaters beside you, so dining al-fresco becomes a pleasure!!! You wont be unhappy if you go to these aprtments, we are hoping to go back in May for our anniversary, if Tiffany can find us a studio again (as I'm positive it will be perfect in May) You have all you need at the Paphinia with the washing machine etc., no dirty wash 2 bring home, now thats priceless eh? lol Happy Hols Folks!!!!! And Thank You 2 all at the Paphinia who made our stay so pleasant, hope the cleaner enjoyed her new shopping trolley, and Nico got his beers we left for him!!!

Room Tip: We were in 211b and 208 both have fab views, all the apartments have seaviews, 1st floor gives you l...

It was not dirty enough for me to complain about, but I did feel the need to buy cleaning products (I am turning into my Mother!). The Kitchen was spotless but the bath and bathroom window surround was horrid.Skirting boards grim and some new bins would have been an improvement. The housekeepers did visit around the New Years holiday and were quick and efficient enough, bearing fresh towels, brushing round and empting bins.

As there were five of us, my son was allocated the sofa bed which he described as "like sleeping on a pile of smashed up concrete". We found a camp bed in a wardrobe which was more comfortable. Staff were very helpful in locating more blankets and pillows (I need more than one).

I loved the location,the balcony and the view. Through the back of the car park, there is a big Papantoniou supermarket with a bakery, which was ideal for all our supplies. There is a good variety of restaurants around the area. The one below our apartment "Mar Bianco" did good food and had a Wi fi hotspot so teenagers were able to use their devices there.

Would recommend.

Weather wise at New Year- T-shirt weather in the day, some rain, but I came home with a tan.

We find it rather hard to accept comments regarding cleanliness. The flats are cleaned five times a week and the linen is changed twice a week. If there really was a problem with the cleaning the office should have been informed at once and the cleaners would have come round in a matter of minutes. There is no point in not complaining at the time and then waiting to send in a written complaint weeks later. Quite pointless! Everybody knows that sofa beds are often not as comfortable as normal beds. For this reason the customers were also offered the use of a camp-bed. Let us not overlook that five people were staying in this apartment.

I was lucky enough to stay in one of the top floor apartments with a friend. This was in mid-November. I was surprised how spacious the apartment was – there was a huge lounge, two good sized bedrooms and a wonderful area for sitting out.

The only disadvantage would be for someone with mobility problems as there is no lift and quite a few steps to the top.

However, if this is not a problem, you have the most fantastic views round the harbour and it is probably one of the best central spots to stay in Paphos. The bus station is less than 5 minutes away and the famous mosaics in the archaeological park are less than 10 minutes away.

The local supermarket puts lots of UK ones to shame for its variety, and that, too, is only a few minutes’ walk from the Paphinia. There are lots of nearby restaurants if you decide against self-catering. I particularly liked the Bacchus, where they do an excellent souvlaki.

I would definitely recommend the Paphinia as an excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: The apartments at the top have lovely views of the harbour and castle.
