“Far from the look on pictures.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

First I had to do, was to clean the very dirty balcony. Second, open windows, and go out for some hours. There was a very ugly smell from the toilet/shower. The shower-curtain should have been changed one year ago. My room was small for a double. (OK as a single). I doubt that this should be classified as a hotel. I`ts more like a simple hostel. The cleaning lady peeped in just twice during one week. One of the times she even made the bed. The other time just changed towels. So if the room was not very clean from the start, it was even dirtier in the end of my week. Breakfast looked very dull and poor. Served in a room half in the cellar. (A bit dark and depressing.) I had my breakfasts at a hotel in town. (Same price, but value about four times as good. And sea-view,) I did not like the area just around the hotel. But could have been worse. Not everyting was bad here. For instance, no plastic on the matress. But bring your own pillow, if you don´t accept hot synthetic. (You can find these terrible pillows in much more expensive hotels.) Well working AC, funny, spacious lobby, nice pool-area. The pool was small, but very clean. A popular taverna just one minute away. Cheap, but also rather cheap-tasting food. There were more restaurants just a few hundred meters away. A very nice little Super-market behind Larco. But it closed early (7). About 8 minutes walk to a very good beach. 15 minutes to the beginning of "centre-beach-promenade." Don´t try walking to airport. Looks near at the map, but takes more than an hour. Because of where the entrance is located. Price for room was 21€/26€ for single/double without breakfast. That was ok. Some web-sites tried to get up to 100€ for a double. Those who accepted something like that, went very dissappoited. For the moment (a year or so) I recommend to stay away from Larnaca because of road-works. Still worse in Limassol. Go go Fig Tree Bay. Buses to the towns are cheap and frequent.

Room Tip: I think the rooms with large terraces, bottom-floor are the best ones. The balconies are rather smal...

Was a terrible Hotel, Staff very unhelpful, lif broke so had to go down the stairs with buggy etc... Didn't get the room I had booked. Whole place needs a major revamp!!!!

If only girls staying, don't venture out at night as local men hang about outside looking into rooms...

Room Tip: Go somewhere else:-)

The Larco is a cheap and cheerful Hotel in a residential area, convenient for the Airport, I was in my room half an Hour from landing.
I had no problems.

Breakfast was a fairly basic Buffet selection but OK. The Mediterranean Sea was only about 3 Minutes away and the nearest Beach and Restaurants about 5.

The better facilities of central Larnaca were about 15 Minutes walk along the Shore.

There was some Night time noise from the Street but it was probably better than central Larnaca would be.

Swimming Pool was smallish but not crowded and Deckchairs always available.

We booked for one summer weekend night this hotel as was the cheapest we could find. They placed the 2 of us in a large apartment. Place is not spotless but at least the air-conditions where working well. Little bit smelly, the furniture is very old, too many stairs everywhere you have to watch out always, even in the apartment. It is a short walking distance from the closest beach so I guess this is a plus. We had a good night sleep although our room was watching the street we haven't been disrupt at all. Breakfast is acceptable, but the coffee is horrible. The girls in the reception are very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Apartments in the first floor got huge balcony with street view.

Having booked this hotel before reading any reviews made me feel very uneasy. However I was pleasantly surpised. The room although simple, was clean. The furniture was old but it's a 2 star hotel!!! There was hot water in the morning and the corridors are well lit,The loaction is very convenient 10 min. walk to Marina and some excellent sea food Resturants. Swimming pool and fitness room are well maintained. The wi fi was fast!The Staff mostly from East Europe are friendly and cooperative. I would definitely stay there again.

Simple hotel, nice swimming pool. Not too far away from the beach, but a bit of a walk to resort centre.

I wanted somewhere cheap/clean/safe near to the airport – the Larco Hotel delivered. The staff were efficient, and the wifi in the lobby was quite fast. Room was bare bones, but clean. There was no hot water in the morning which was annoying. Entering the room at night, it was hard to find the light switch.
