Probably my first experience of Larnaca and the hotel was getting lost. Larnaca itself is a warren of one way street and this hotel is located on a very small back street. IF YOU'RE GOING TO DRIVE TO THE HOTEL, ENSURE YOU RESERVE A GPS.

That said, the hotel is right off the water and next to a McDonald's (no smell and nothing awful, just a landmark) but it is very tough to find. Parking is very hard, and while the hotel offers free parking, one needs to reserve it. Even so, that doesn't guaranty you will have a spot, but it gives you "standing". SO if you anticipate needing parking, email ahead.

The hotel is less than a block off the beach and staff is really helpful with advice on nearby restaurants and sights.There is plenty to do with in a short walk.

The hotel is clean, but perhaps not perfectly maintained--a window would not stay shut, the "minibar," a mini vending machine in the room, was broken.The hotel has nice fixtures, lots of stone, the shower was really nice, and everything well designed. The breakfast buffet offered a nice selection of items. Staff was very nice and extra friendly.

Would I stay here a gain? If I had to go to Larnaca and I had a GPS, yes I would.

Room Tip: I chose a superior room and it did not have an ocean view. I think I would forgoe that the next time

As a 2 star hotel we were expecting a grotty place, but from stepping into the Hotel we were treated great, nothing was too much trouble for them, I found that I was allergic to the memory foam mattress and mentioned it to the receptionist who had it turned over especially, the complimentary breakfast was excellent, the hotel has all the mod cons that you could wish for, Mood lighting in the rooms, wet room power showers etc it was better than some 4 & 5 star Hotels that we have stayed in especially in cyprus, and to top it all a wall mounted TV and even a Clock on the bedside table, it surpassed itself in every way, I would not hesitate to stay there again, and the receptionists were so helpful in every way, And we have been going to Cyprus for 30yrs just a shame we didn't find it sooner. Excellent Value in every way.

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for a Suite they look excellent in fact 1 has a Jaccuzi bath in it. We asked...

We stayed here for a night at either end of our trip to Cyprus and it was a great way to start and end the holiday. It's about 10 mins from the airport (15euro taxi ride) and just around the corner from the main water front of the city. We had a standard double the first night, which was smallish but comfortable with a nice bathroom. Only problem there was the shower sprayed everywhere and then that leaked into the room itself, making the floor quite slippery...not the best.
We were upgraded to an executive double for our return night and that was just lovely. Big room, big double bed, nice sofa area and huge bathroom with a shower and double jacuzzi bath. Very comfortable. Both rooms were clean, well laid out and very modern.
The staff were friendly and very helpful and the breakfast was great. The breakfast room is on the top floor with views of the waterfront.
This hotel is great value for money. We originally booked a superior double for our second night and that was 77e. A bargain compared to lots of other places.

This is a nice modern hotel in the centre of town one street back from the main promenade. Unfortunately any nice views are obscured by the McDonalds restaurant in front. The room was modern and trendy with free wifi, there is a gym downstairs and breakfast was great.

The hotel is nicely situated in a little back street of central Larnaca. From there everything is within walking distance, which is a good thing since the car traffic in the center is very crowded and full of one-way streets.They have free underground parking spaces, but book in advance if you want to secure a spot as they only have 6. Otherwise there is a rather large guarded parking lot 10m ahead of the hotel that only costs 5€/day.

Our standard room was spotless and nicely furnished, if a little small, and had good wireless connection. There was no view, but for 68€ a night I wouldn't complain. The air con however was very noisy, so I had to wear earplugs all night.

The breakfast area was surprisingly nice on the top floor,  with a little outdoor area. Food on the other hand was not terrific, just good enough.

Staff was welcoming, which is appreciated since it's unfortunately not always the case in Cyprus. Overall this hotel is a very good choice if you're in Larnaca for a short stay and don't want to spend a fortune in a beach resort.

Room Tip: Secure your parking space in advance as they only have 6!
