“modern hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Quite modern hotel. Good breakfast, but no sweets. Strange reception desk and hotel amienities. The buildings are very new and watch out the acustic of particular rooms. We could listen our neighbours shower...

Room Tip: Have a good view

Well if you like a seaside hotel, a sea (and sunset) view from your room, plenty of space in the room, an unbeatable bath with plenty of hot water, a large comfortable bed, the possibility of a wonderful seaside walk to the town harbor, a great choice of restaurants and bars around, a superb breakfast and excellent people working there, combined with an unbeatable price, then this is the place!

Have just returned and wish we were still there enjoying the sunset views from our room and balcony. A superbly located hotel with delightful leisurely walk into the harbour area of Paphos. Helpful, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and comfortable and regularly cleaned room. Ample restaurants and bars close by including the excellent suite 48 which is located within the grounds. Amazing low cost bus service to delightful areas around Paphos. Will certainly return.

This was our first trip to Cyprus and Paphos. The airport is only 20 mins drive from the hotel which is a great bonus, having just survived the 5 hour Ryanair flight with a 11 month old and 3 year old.

Bearing in mind this was the first week of Feb, we were delighted to get 7 days of sun with just a little cloud. The sea was swimmable and the climate consistent at around 21-22 each day. We decided that Cyprus beats the Canaries hands down if you want some Winter sun, as it has so much more to offer (food/culture/history etc).

The Amphora is really well located as highlighted in other reviews. The rooms are all sea view and so you can't avoid the amazing sunsets. We had a suite with separate living area, and it was unquestionably high quality with a wet room type shower as well as bath and double sinks. The living area is sparse but you appreciate the high standard of finish and daily cleaning as a result.

Staff were generally very friendly - a mention for Laura on reception whose smile lit up the large open reception area every morning. Breakfasts were great - we didn't realise Paphos has a number of banana plantations as well as orange trees lining the streets, and you can't fail to enjoy eating (or drinking) the local fruit and other produce. Luiza the waitress was especially lovely to us but the whole team were great and very attentive.

I am not sure this review can add much to others listed. It is a shame about the hole/site next to the hotel which was planned as an extension to the hotel, but this does not interfere with the outlook from the rooms/balconies so nothing to worry about.

Whilst this was not the most child friendly hotel owing to it's minimalist style - Paphos has so much to offer hence there seems no need to pay more for a hotel with loads of facilities. The beach bar next door "Suite 42" is really good for excellent food and service throughout the day, and there is a supermarket and other amenities around the hotel if you can't be bothered to go into Paphos.

Like many people we have stayed in different types of hotels in different places. The combination of Amphora and Paphos is a great choice for Cyprus (or Paphos) newbies and we would recommend it fully.

Room Tip: Ensure you look at suite options to give a bit more space

The rooms here are modern and chic with plenty of amenities even in the most basic rooms - lots of toiletries, towels, slippers etc. The sunsets over the sea and the pool are beautiful and the hotel is in a great location - only a short walk from the central harbour area and is surrounded by a wide choice of restaurants and shops. The hotel is beautifully situated on the beach too. Bare in mind there is no room service and WiFi will only work with one device so you must ask for more passwords to use for example a laptop and a phone.

OK it's cubist, concrete, minimalist even brutalist (says my son) but I didn't miss the pictures and decorations, I was too busy drinking in the glorious sunsets over the pool and beach. We got dressing gowns and slippers (You have to request these to get them, I understand) and a well-equipped room that was aggressively cleaned daily. Efficient and helpful staff and one brilliant lady whose name I regret I never noted, in reception. Located near the bus stop for the harbour (tip - get a weekly bus ticket for 15 euros each, we made good use of ours) or a half-hour stroll to the lovely harbour and new town. But the highlight, despite having two tiny tots, was the Archaeological Site which was quite stunning. The mosaics! OK this was February, and lots of places and attractions were closed, but we felt we had the place to ourselves. The establishments that were open tried that bit harder (sometimes in desperation!) but everywhere was laid-back and friendly.
Back to the hotel. Next to a huge hole in the ground which will (finance allowing) be the next stage in the development, including spa, sauna etc. So, not the prettiest sight (or site) to the south, but we kept our view elsewhere! Fortified by lovely eclectic breakfasts. with friendly, smiling staff.
Another tip. The little bistro called "something 45" (can't remember the name) was quirky, friendly and welcoming. The palm trees lit up in varying colours was a good memory.
Last tip; avoid the supermarket across the road. Little stock and a bad attitude by the owners! But the Felix bar opposite shows premier league football and has a manic and agreeable owner.

Just returned from this hotel after having nine great days here, we were a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews, the hotel is brilliant. The rooms are well equipped with plenty of toiletries, towels, comfortable beds, lovely fresh clean linen and spotlessly clean. People complain there was not tea and coffee but all you have to do is buy these items from the local supermarket and use the kettle etc and use the fridge for your milk. There is also a tv in your room not a lot of English channels but do you really go to Cyprus on holiday to watch tv? The dinning room was great the food was lovely you could have plenty to eat, the staff were really helpful and worked very hard and the restaurant area was spotless. The receptionists were extremely helpful, nothing was a problem always friendly, also the young guy (cannot remember his name) who helped all over the hotel was always helping out guests. There is a few finishing touches which are being finished here but this is understandable as the hotel is only six months old, these few things do not interfere with you staying there. The pool is lovely and there are plenty of beds and chairs for use, if not you just ask and they bring more up from downstairs. The reviews that say it is very minimalistic yes it is but this is perfect as you do not sit in the hotel all day and you do not need to be falling over lots of furniture. All I can say is that this hotel was well worth the stay and is of a high standard and we look forward to returning very soon. Thank you Amphora for a lovely time there.

Room Tip: All very good rooms all with sea view and pool view.
